PETA Crowns Top Five Mac 'n' Cheese Dishes

The animal-rights organization named the best macaroni and cheese meals around the US and Canada.

In honor of National Macaroni Day on July 7, animal-advocacy organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals announced five stellar vegan macaroni and cheese entrées from plant-based restaurants in the United States and Canada. First place goes to Sublime restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, FL for its mouthwatering and decadent macaroni, smothered in a Dijon mustard béchamel sauce and covered with panko breadcrumbs. The other winning mac ‘n’ cheeses include Vancouver, BC's Wallflower Modern Diner's cheddar cheese and soy hot dog macaroni and cheese, and Seattle, WA-based Plum Bistro's Cajun-spiced version. PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman comments, “PETA applauds these restaurants for demonstrating how dairy-free mac and cheese nourishes diners’ bodies and souls without clogging their arteries.”
