17 Absolutely Sinful Mac N’ Cheese Dishes in Manila


Damn.

There’s something so comforting about Mac and Cheese that no one ever seems to outgrow it. This simple baked macaroni pasta drowned in cheese is more than enough to make us swoon in delight. It is perfect on its own or as a complementary side dish to ribs or roasted chicken.

While restaurants may have their own different versions by adding signature ingredients like truffle or bacon, Mac N’ Cheese, no matter the form, will always remain a favorite.

Here are a few places around the city that you can rely on for good Mac n’ Cheese to perk up your appetite!
