There is nothing I love more in this world than the taste of carbs covered with fine varieties of real or powdered cheese. The taste of the gooey cheese covered pieces of elbow pasta that have a perfect hole to hide a secret pocket of sauce so when your teeth break through an extra bust of goodness is encountered. The fine spiced bread crumbs on top baked to add a little extra crisp…seriously, perfection.
Mishkin’s is a little Jewish deli tucked away in the theatre district, hidden from the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden and Leicester Square (or Lie-chester as us Canadians like to call it). Friday night, my belly needed filling over a girlie catch up with Davina. Cocktails were the first thing on my mind (and also this cringe Nsync song that pretty much summed up how I was feeling – ‘Thank God it’s Friday night and I just got PAID’). That quickly changed to food- when I saw the holy grail of mac and cheese on the menu – ‘Salt Beef and Colemans’. The marriage of my two favourite Jewish delicacies made Mishkin’s my new heaven on earth.
After all that, I ordered classic mac with a side of Chicken Matzo Ball soup (still doesn’t compare to my mama’s!) and plenty of Spring Fling Cocktails. Girlie chats, good food and a cozy atmosphere made for the perfect start to the weekend! Despite having to be rolled home after scraping the sweet ceramic plate clean, every bit of the mac-attack was worth it.
