Macaroni Market; will it satisfy those cravings for mac’n’cheese?

Filed under: expatriates, food — extrakorea @ 3:43 am

As an expatriate who sometimes has cravings for macaroni and cheese, I find myself intrigued by a restaurant called Macaroni Market.

For me, the idea of mac ‘n’ cheese is inseparable from the image of Kraft’s $3 blue box.

So imagine my surprise when I first encountered Macaroni Market. Divided into a cafe, club and restaurant, this place doesn’t serve up your mama’s mac.

But if privacy is your prime concern – hint hint to the couple making out at the table next to mine at a recent visit to another establishment – then a meal at Macaroni Market makes for a good time. Soft jazz makes the low lighting all the more cozy, and the service here is among the best that I’ve found in Korea.

The restaurant side doesn’t exactly have a wide range of entrees, but they’re awfully fancy, generally priced between 19,000 won and 49,000 won. Choices include the fish of the day, first-grade Korean sirloin (49,000 won) and the Italian-style slow-roasted pork belly (23,000 won).

I want.

Macaroni Market may be a misnomer, but having a meal here would hardly be a mistake.
