A brand new Mac’n’Cheese restaurant is set to open in Birmingham this Saturday and we are sure to be counting the days until the gluttony desires of our ever-loving cheese souls are bestowed with a dedicated place to sin.
Holy Moly! Macaroni has been a tease amongst Birmingham cheese lovers for the last couple of months. All we knew was that it is definitely coming to the Grand Central and that the owner and Mac’N’Cheese connoisseur, Anthony Duffy was promising indulgent delights, such as the Uptown mac- wild mushrooms, truffle oil and crispy onions; Shrimp Daddy- chorizo and prawn topped mac; and the Mac-and-no-cheese vegan options set on a mission to win hearts.
Well, a few days ago the official @holymolymac Twitter reminded us that it’s definitely happening.
Exciting news! Our founder, Duffy (no, not the singer) has just been in to discuss promoting the fact we're opening on Saturday 21 July. A 'consultant' 'friend' has told him we need to deliver an authentic social media experience from the team here at Holy Moly Macaroni.— Holy Moly Macaroni (@holymolymac) July 14, 2018

The Holy Moly Macaroni website features the story of how a genius, yet simple business idea came to life (and soon, our lucky tummies): “For centuries, British families have come together over bubbling bowls of macaroni cheese. With crisp tops perfect for plunging, molten middles, and the squabble for the burnt bits, what dish says family better? No wonder humble macaroni cheese was one of the first dishes English explorers cooked up when they landed in America. A homage to home. One day in 2012, in the spirit of adventurers past, a group of English friends exploring the States stopped at a diner in Harlem with a growling hunger and sickness for home in their stomachs. Faced with a hearty menu of soul food to choose from, it was the cosy promise of macaroni cheese that called to them. Over dripping forkfuls thousands of miles from home, the friends realised England had forgotten how glorious this gooey, golden goodness could be.
They knew they had to bring back proper mac.”
So, reserve Saturday, 21st July for a soul-food experience in the middle of the Second city. And don’t forget to put it on Instagram so we can all be jealous.
