Deep Fried Mac and Cheese Balls

Prohibition has lots of tasty dishes, but their special of the day is something you need to grab while its there - from what I gather they don't often repeat! The special we tried was Deep Fried Macaroni and Cheese Balls.

Say What?

Deep Fried Macaroni and Cheese Balls? Seriously?

And just to make the already interesting sounding DFM&C balls even more interesting - a tomato based sauce and a raspberry-jalapeño sauce.

Raspberry Jalapeño sauce?

For the second time in one sentence the waitress had me thinking "did I just hear that right?"

Everyone at the table looked at each other and was thinking the exact same thing - this dish is not optional. For a dish that was only offered as the daily special, it was definitely a winner. The mac & cheese was breaded and deep fried, and while the cheese wasn't as strong as I like it was hearty and just the right kind of sticky to hold everything together. The tomato sauce wasn't all that memorable but definitely pleasant.

The raspberry jalapeño sauce was a home run out of the park. Imagine your favorite raspberry jam, nice and sweet, awesome on toast - comfort food from the time when you could just manage to get the fridge open grab the jam jar, some bread out of the breadbox, and manage to put yourself together a snack before mom caught you in the middle of the night. Now, take that and make it a little spicy. Not so spicy that it burns, but spicy enough so that it kind of says "Hey, remember me? I'm here, in your mouth. Don't forget it." and when you put this sauce together with the deep fried mac and cheese balls, it's like your mouth just died and went to heaven. Wow.

If this wasn't a daily special, I'd be recommending you go get some. Tonight.
