An Ode to the Macaroni And Cheese Wedges at Cheeburger Cheeburger

file-oct-06-3-19-13-pm

Yesterday, I went out with my friend Nathan to our usual burger joint, Cheeburger Cheeburger. In honor of the YouTube video series “Skooks”, we just call it “the malt shop.”

The burgers are good, but the thing that makes me come back for more is their unique appetizer, the fried macaroni and cheese wedges.

To my international audience, this may seem revolting. Indeed, the systematic deep-frying is a uniquely American impulse. If one wants to get deep-fried sushi, deep-fried Oreos, deep-fried Cheerios, and even deep-fried butter in the United States they can certainly find someone who will provide it.

In an act of both redundancy and a necessary increase in caloric content, I order a cheese sauce along with it. Nothing better than cheese on cheese.

It is not an ambrosia. It has a consistency to its flavor that never quite reaches the ideal state but remains good enough for continued consumption. Nonetheless, I am glad that it is only available as an appetizer since I would likely stuff myself full with a full plate of these.

That said, the fried pickles they have are quite tasty as well. We even paid tribute to Skooks once more and ordered a malt with a pickle on top.  Perhaps next time, I’ll branch out into some other deep-fried morsel and regret it when I go to the scale the next morning. Much like this post, it’s a short treat that ends with a slight perk to one’s day.

  4. Scotland has a deep fried Mars bar craze going for it so maybe it’s not just an American thing? Whatever the geographic location, that appetiser looks yummy!
