Is there anything more comforting than a warming bowl of mac and cheese? The moment the weather turns cooler, it’s the first thing we’re dreaming of getting our hands on. So for the fellow cheese lovers out there, we’ve rounded up the seven best mac and cheeses that every Londoner needs to try. 

From Bob Bob Ricard’s indulgent lobster number to Sixes’ croquette twist, here are our favourites in and around London.

Five Cheese Macaroni, The Cheese Bar

There’s nowhere we’d rather go for a cheesy, indulgent dinner than The Cheese Bar in Camden. These cheese maestros have mastered the art of cheese in every form, from oozy fondue to grilled cheeses packed with a kick. And their mac and cheese number is certainly up there as a menu highlight. 

Their macaroni and cheese comes packed with a five cheese blend, featuring the likes of Montgomery’s Ogleshield, Quicke’s Cheddar, Lincolnshire Poacher, Brue Valley Mozzarella and Cornish Kern. Plus on Mondays it’s only £5!

Lobster Macaroni Cheese, Bob Bob Ricard

Renowned as the restaurant behind the ‘Press for Champagne’ button, Bob Bob Ricard has become a favourite amongst the foodie set and Champagne drinkers. 

As if you couldn’t get more indulgent than mac and cheese, Bob Bob Ricard decided to throw lobster into the mix too. Expect a four cheese blend of cheddar, mozzarella, gruyère and parmesan mixed with fresh lobster. 

Right now to celebrate the relaunch of Bob Bob Ricard City, with new head chef Ben Hobson, diners can enjoy 25% off food during their lunch service. Available until 30th November.

The Magic Mushroom, Anna Mae’s 

Transportable mac and cheese? Yes please! Anna Mae’s has made a name for itself in the cheese world. You’ll often find their truck parked up at festivals and markets, serving up some of the best oozy mac and cheese that London has to offer. 

We love The Magic Mushroom pot. It’s packed with mac and porcini mushrooms, black truffle and grana padano d.o.p.

The Mac Daddy, Dirty Bones 

Food doesn’t come as dirty or indulgent as Dirty Bones. Inspired by the comfort food sold in New York, Dirty Bones set up shop in London, bringing with them hearty dishes and cocktails that pack a punch. 

Level up your burger experience and try The Mac Daddy. The bun is stacked with a double brisket and dry-aged steak burger that’s topped with pulled beef short rib, mac & cheese and espresso-spiked BBQ sauce. If that doesn’t have your mouth watering, their mac and cheese side made with aged and smoked cheddar and topped with parmesan breadcrumbs will.

Making quite a name for themselves for a great day out with all the family, Sixes Cricket Club doesn’t disappoint on the food front either. Set up by co-founders of Mac and Wild, Sixes offers a great selection on their British BBQ themed menu. And their mac and cheese croquettes? They taste as dreamy as they sound.

Vegan Mac n Cheese, The Vurger Co. 

Vegans needn’t miss out on all of the macaroni fun. The Vurger Co. has two delicious mac n cheese options to devour alongside one of their legendary burgers. First up is the original made with house-made ‘cheese’ sauce infused with truffle oil before being topped with vegan parm. Or for the sun-dried tomato lovers out there, there’s a tomato-y pesto number topped with their vegan parm – yum is an understatement.

Truffle Macaroni Cheese, Balthazar

Truffle and macaroni cheese go hand in hand. It’s like two indulgences in one – what’s not to love? For those wanting to go all out, head to Covent Garden’s Balthazar for a mac to remember. 

Essentially a poshed up version of the comforting classic, make sure you add truffle to your order. You won’t regret it.
