The next time you hanker for an authentic mac ‘n’ cheese, head to Grand Central in Birmingham. From June this will be the home of Anthony Duffy’s debut restaurant Holy Moly Macaroni, which will be serving authentic Harlem soul food inspired by his trips Stateside.
You may have seen Anthony in his Mac Shack at Digbeth Dining Club, or street food events up and down the country, as he has spent the last couple of years perfecting his recipes.
Get ready for dishes including The Fun Guy – mac and cheese with smoked pancetta and wild mushrooms – and The Vampire Slayer – macaroni with roasted garlic oil and Parmesan. As well as their four cheese macaroni double dipped fried chicken in a ginger beer batter , baby back eight-hour smoked ribs and New York cheesecakes will feature on the menu.
Anthony says: “I am so excited for the opening of the restaurant. It gives me such pride to open an independent restaurant in Birmingham that has it individuality and personality. It’s not a corporate and never will be.”
Opening towards the end of June, Holy Moly Macaroni will be open every day from 11 am to 10 pm. More details on their FB page www.facebook.com/holymolymac.
