Dish no. 74: Meatloaf Mac & Cheese at Queens Comfort (40-09 30th Avenue, 718-728-2350)

If you are going to call yourself Queens Comfort, you had better be serving up a topnotch rendition of macaroni and cheese, one of the world's best comfort foods. Luckily, the restaurant delivers, upping the ante with another comforting ingredient: meatloaf. Elbow macaroni and bits of homemade meatloaf are doused with white cheddar, fontina, and gouda-infused bechamel (itself made from milk, heavy cream, flour, and a butter based roux). The blend is ladled into a casserole dish, topped with more cheese, and then browned under the salamander until it's bubbling and crispy along the edges. This monster gets crowned with a fistful of deep-fried, Tabasco-kissed shoestring onions.
