Brooklyn Mac – The Bed Stuy

By on Tuesday, September 11th, 2012 at 5:09 am

Its been a little too hot this summer to really get into baked macaroni and cheese. Luckily, it got cool last week.

Brooklyn Mac serves a variety of recipes of Mac and Cheese. I obviously want to try every single one. The Bed Stuy is hot sauce and chicken with cheddar cheese. The combination was good, but the Bushwick, with Pico De Gallo sauce, was probably better.

The first time I went in here, a friend ordered a medium size. He ended up getting a vegan size. Common mistake? Perhaps. The vegan version of the Greenpoint — Cheddar, broccoli and Kielbasa tasted like a damn good dairy mac and cheese, with the added benefit of not wanting to die after eating.

I really need to try a small. The medium just leaves me asking for death.

Pesto Pasta Salad

Pesto Pasta salad

A pesto pasta salad is a refreshing lunchtime side dish.

Its difficult to admit that I like a little pasta salad on the side with an lunch sandwich. Fran’s does have a great traditional, mayonaise based pasta salad as well. But with tomatos and a pesto sauce, I feel a little less guilty.

On the other hand, making my own pesto is easy enough I feel that I should have made my own.
