Ok. There are some things that can be passed up.
And then there are others....
Well...if you haven't tried the deliciousness that is S'Mac (Sarita's Mac n Cheese) in the East Village, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.
It's bascially an all mac n cheese place where you can pick and choose your own toppings to make your own perfect little creation. They have 14 kinds of cheese including chedder, goat cheese, pecorino and gruyere, and a bunch of other add-ins like hot dogs, fresh basil, chicken, scallions, andouille sausage and even figs. To make it even more amazing they also have whole wheat pasta AND gluten-free pasta. You can make your own combination, or choose from one of their amazing recommended combos.
All-American: the perfect blend of american and cheddar. Simple and delicious.
Cajun: "If you are looking for some kick, here it is. Cheddar & Pepper Jack cheeses, andouille sausage, green pepper, onions, celery, garlic and, of course, some genuine Cajun seasoning."
Masala: with Indian spices
and Mediterranean: "Be swept away to the Mediterranean Sea - Goat cheese, sauteed spinach, kalamata olives, and roasted garlic. You can almost feel the breeze from the water..."
Ok, so it's not exactly health food, but I always get the whole wheat pasta, and they even have Lite Cheddar, so you don't have to feel SO bad...right?
P.S. they offer a sampler of 8 of their recommended combos.
I might just die right now.
