Miso Lobster Macaroni & Cheese Where to get it: Kata Robata, 3600 Kirby

You may not think to order this classic comfort dish at one of the city's hottest Japanese restaurants, but Kata Robata's decadent, crustacean-loaded miso mac' is so good, you'll be sorry you didn't. A mix of miso, parmesan, gouda, and cheddar cheeses makes for an ultra creamy, ultra rich base with umami flavor; while a topping of buttery crisp panko adds some crunch. We suggest getting the $19 for the table so everyone can get a taste.

Short Rib Mac Where to get it: Brooklyn Athletic Club, 601 Richmond

Classic Amerian and cheddar mac' and cheese is made all the better with shreds of rich and beefy braised short rib and caramelized mushrooms and peppers. As if that's not enough, the miniature Le Creuset skillet of mac' ($9) gets a buttery, herbed and golden brown breadcrumb crust. Crack it open and enjoy the magic.

Mac & Cheese of the Day Where to get it: BRC Gastropub, 519 Shepherd

Get a different, gooey, cheesy, and completely stacked mac' & cheese everyday of the week at this popular gastropub. Think delicious things like egg-topped, bacon-loaded Brunch Mac; spicy chicken-studded Buffalo Bleu Mac, and beef-and-jalapeño-spiked Chili Mac, to name a few. Each awesome creation comes piled high and broiled to a crisp in a piping hot cast iron skillet.

Mac & Cheese Egg Rolls Where to get them: Muiishi Makirritos

You probably like egg rolls, right? Well we can promise you've never had egg rolls like these (unless you've had these, in which case, you've definitely had egg rolls like these). Either way, this fusion food truck's crispy-fried mac n' cheese egg rolls -- loaded with Houston Dairymaids' Redneck Cheddar, smoked gouda, ground beef AND applewood-smoked bacon -- should be on your radar. Get stuffed two rolls for just $5.

Frito Pie Mac Where to get it: Jus' Mac, Mulitple locations

Jus' Mac is jus' genius. That's because they take their already excellent cast iron skillet of cheesy macaroni and load it with homemade chili, more cheese, and a pile of Fritos. Eating it is like being in fat kid heaven and we love every second of it. Get a sizzling skillet for $6.95 and worry about the gym tomorrow.
