Try this: Chicken Scampi mac & cheese
Today, I’m starting a new occasional feature about some of the unusual food I encounter on my travels. It’s just like the Quirky Attractions feature, except it’s all about food, a subject near and dear to my heart. I’ve already covered a few strange eateries, like the Wiener Circle and the Rutgers grease trucks, but I think food deserves its own separate column.
The first installment is a casual St. Louis restaurant called Cheese-ology. Located right in the awesome Delmar Loop neighborhood, this place serves up mac & cheese, and absolutely nothing else. Unless you count salads (which are borderline food in my opinion.) Oh, and they do serve booze.
Varieties offered include: Buffalo Chicken, Santa Fe, Bacon Bacon, Philly Cheese, Creamy Pesto, and even a vegan recipe. My favorite was the Chicken Scampi. Sadly, the accompanying piece of bread was boring and flavorless – no garlic, no butter… no imagination! Aside from that, I enjoyed the food and found Cheese-ology quirky and endearing.
Would you eat at a restaurant that only served macaroni & cheese?
