This Poutini's offshoot on Ossington is all about take-out mac, offering a variety of versions (and two different sizes) that all use cavatappi, from a classic five-cheese blend to more out-there creations, like blue cheese and Buffalo chicken with Frank's hot sauce, or carbonara with pancetta, grana padano and egg yolk. There are even vegan and gluten-free options.

One of the Annex’s favourite hangouts has moved from Markham Street to Bloor, but the mac remains just as delicious. Colby, Gruyere and cheddar are melted into a gooey sauce and combined with macaroni, caramelized onions and sun-dried tomatoes. It can be ordered as a main or side, and the main is served with garlic bread and a side garden salad (to give it some semblance of healthiness).

This craft brewpub in the Junction offers two tasty versions of mac: with short ribs, stout jus and cheese curds, or a vegetarian version with mushrooms, goat cheese and truffle oil. Both are served with toasted focaccia.

O&B Canteen

O&B Canteen

Found attached to the TIFF Bell Lightbox, this restaurant that’s part of the Oliver & Bonacini empire has a menu that occasionally changes up, but you’ll always be able to find this staple dish on it (albeit different versions). Currently, it’s offered in the form of a rich and comforting mac & cheese bowl with canestri pasta, kale, a three-cheese blend and cherry tomato, all topped with herbed breadcrumbs.

Mac makes an excellent side to tasty smoked meats, and the mac at this Roncesvalles BBQ joint appropriately comes Cajun style, with melted Applewood smoked white cheddar and Cajun panko breadcrumbs as a topping.
