Order Delicious Homeroom Mac and Cheese Online

Hello Hawaiian Mac, Goodbye Crab Mac

Some of you are going to be pretty mad. Like stomp your feet mad.

But some of you are going to jump up and down and do a little happy dance!

Starting on April 21st, we will no longer have the Crab Mac or the Truffle Mac on the menu. But, we’re replacing them with the Hawaiian Mac and the Buffalo Chicken Mac! Yay!

This was a really tough decision for us. The Crab Mac and the Truffle Mac are both pretty special to us. They are our celeborary macs. They are what you order when you feel like something a little fancy, a little indulgent. But they’re also our most expensive macs – expensive for you and expensive for us. Good crabmeat costs a lot by the pound – as it should, when you think about what you’re getting. Crab also has a season, so it doesn’t really make sense to keep crab on the menu when it’s not crab season. Same with the Truffle Mac – using cheese made with real truffles instead of a cheap truffle oil costs A LOT. And after chatting with many of you at the restaurant, you would much prefer to have the Hawaiian or Buffalo permanently on the menu than the Truffle mac anyway.

So if you’re in the group of people who will be stomp-your-feet-mad, come in anytime before April 21st to get your fill of the Crab Mac or the Truffle Mac. But don’t fret too much, we’ll have the Crab Mac back every year as a special for January and February, just in time for New Year’s celebrations and the Bay Area’s Dungeness Crab season. You can also find both recipes in our cookbook if you want to try your hand at mac and cheese at home.

And if you’re one of the happy campers–thanks for sharing your thoughts! It’s because of your awesome feedback that out of all our monthly specials, these are the two macs that scored the permanent menu spots. We hope you enjoy them!

What’s up with Cold Brew Coffee and Why Jittery John’s has the Best.

“Cold brew coffee” has become quite the obsession for brew connoisseurs everywhere. What makes it so good? What makes it different from regular coffee? The owner of Oakland’s own Jittery John’s Cold Brew Coffee explains:

“Cold brewing means that the brew is made with cold water, not hot. The process takes significantly longer than hot brewed coffee, but the result is well worth the wait. Cold extraction draws significantly less of the bitter acids from the beans than hot coffee extraction, and thus produces a super rich and smooth cup of coffee that is very easy to drink iced or hot.”

Homeroom is a proud carrier of Jittery John’s Cold Brew Coffee. We thank them for personally delivering to us their 64oz growlers of rich, full bodied coffee that leaves other cold brews in the dust. Check out their website here and come in to one of Homeroom’s locations for a taste.

The 16oz bottle shown above is their cold brew concentrate that makes up to 4 to 5 cups of smooth rich coffee. So don’t drink it all in one sitting! They’ve also recently started bottling ready-to-drink bottled iced coffee that is sure to get people’s attention. Homeroom salutes them for being so dedicated to their craft and business. Get your cold brew now!
