For reasons unknown to me, lobster macaroni and cheese have been on my mind. Those thoughts gave way to a craving, and I decided to cave and track down some Portland lobster mac and cheese. The closest thing I could find on the Grubhub app was Alameda Brewhouse’s lobster and crab mac and cheese meal — so that’s what I ordered.
The food arrived at my doorstep ten minutes earlier than the arrival time quoted to me by Grubhub, which in this case was a positive thing because I had just gotten back from Plaid Pantry. Had I been taking my time then the food might have gotten to my doorstep with nobody home to take the call, and that would have been a problem.
The first bite was good, and so were the second and third bites. In fact, nothing was wrong with the mac and cheese. I will say that it didn’t wow me, but then again I am a very picky eater and would characterize this kind of meal as exotic, and because I found nothing wrong with it I am giving this meal from this popular Portland location a 5/5. However, the meal came with breadsticks, and they had some herbs on it that made it taste like it was burnt even though clearly they were not. I didn’t like the breadsticks, and I’m giving them a separate score of 2/5.
