Over the weekend, I went to Bobbie Sue’s Mac and Cheese Stand for the first time.
I ordered the Carbonara mac which had pancetta and grana padano. The pancetta gave it a saltiness and the cheese was like a parmesan from a different part of Italy. The dish was very flavouful. I only had the small portion but it was all I needed.
Bestival happened this weekend and I had a few snacks while there. Here are a few of the things I stuffed my face with. The first was Eva’s Original Chimney in Apple Pie. It was an ice cream in a donut-like pastry and it was filled with apple pie stuffing. It felt like a warm hug.
This Jerk Chicken Mac and Cheese (forgot the truck name) was ok, a little on the cold side but full of delicious chicken and peas.
A panda from Tokyo Smoke made me a latte shaped out of a panda out of their mobile coffee shop that was bicycle powered.
Lastly, I had this delicious and juicy Jerk Chicken & Mango sandwich from Come and Get It.
I’m coming for you Toronto food trucks!
Before going to The Crest, I accidentally Googled the menu for the Crest Gastropub in Columbus Ohio and did not notice until we actually got to restaurant. Luckily, the Crest on St. Clair West was a pleasant surprise and one of my new favourite discoveries. The 6-cheese Truffle Mac ($8) heavenly. It was so simple, yet complex and I would return for this item alone. It’s definitely the best Mac & Cheese I’ve ever tasted (and I’ve had some with bacon).
I’m definitely glad we went here, even if it was sort of by accident! This menu turned out to be way better than the accidental restaurant we looked up. Don’t be intimidated by the fancy sign outside. It’s definitely worth walking in.
