Everyone’s favorite thing about Cafeteria, besides the mac n cheese, has to be that you can show up at any hour and get some food! The party doesn’t stop NYC, when you can always pop in at the Caf.
So when I was leaving this wine tasting downtown and was starving, I knew I could lean on my friends at Cafeteria to hold my stomach down. I was tired but I quickly perked up with this Mojito Sangria in front of me. This sangria was heavenly all round so I ordered a pitcher of it.
I wasn’t even all that hungry but who am I to resist mac-n-cheese spring rolls? I LOVE spring rolls & I love mac-n-cheese so I had high expectations for this 8th wonder of the world. Luckily, it didn’t disappoint me. The outside of the roll was crisp and crunchy and more importantly, didn’t overpower the flavors on the inside. Inside of the roll the mac was soft, great chew, cheesy and even better when you dip it in more cheese.
By then I really wasn’t hungry. Or was I? Because I definitely wound up ordering their beer battered fish that was delish! The fish was just so soft and fried to this beautiful brown that you couldn’t help but appreciate. They also make a killer meatloaf and see how I felt about brunch last time I was here.
I had to save room for dessert and considering I never had fried Oreos before, that day was definitely the day I wanted to formally introduce my taste buds. Are they overrated? Maybe, by a little bit. Does that mean they weren’t awesome? Absolutely not. They were extra good and I got to pair it with an amazing serving of cappuccino ice cream.
