71 Lafayette Circle, Lafayette
American Kitchen in Lafayette boasts a full list of 11 different kinds of mac and cheese variations for their Mac N' Cheese Wednesdays every week.
There's everything from a basic mac, to a truffle mac, to a cajun mac, or even a BBQ chicken mac (which is what I chose to try). Pretty much a little something for everyone. It's actually pretty hard to choose. But after a glass of wine and some time to unwind after a long day at work, my friend and I chose our fates: the BBQ Chicken Mac and the Southwestern Mac.
The Southwestern Mac consisted of a mix of pepper jack cheese, crispy tortilla, roasted corn and steak. While it had pretty decent flavor, the cheese sauce itself was rather watery. I would wonder if that had something to do with the choice of cheese. I've never tried to melt down pepper jack. Not sure how that would turn out.

There's plenty other menu options I'm hoping to try in the future, the most of which being their basic mac and cheese. I feel like you get a better feel for how good a mac and cheese dish offering is by knowing how the restaurant makes the basic dish. Looks like I'll just have to go back.
