The eagerly-anticipated restaurant, Holy Moly Macaroni, is now open in Birmingham’s Grand Central to bring back proper mac to the masses following its recent appearance on the popular Channel 4 programme, Sunday Brunch.

Founded in 2015, Holy Moly Macaroni began as a street food stall and featured at the popular Digbeth Dining Club, sharing dishes inspired by Harlem, New York. With Harlem-inspired décor including neon signs and graffiti wall art, the soul food scene has now been brought to the heart of Birmingham by the Holy Moly team and their exciting new menu.

Open daily from 11am to 10pm, Holy Moly Macaroni is serving its now famous ‘Uptown Mac’ dish with wild mushrooms and truffle oil, loved by those on Sunday Brunch, as well as its famous ‘Proper Mac’ four cheese macaroni in addition to vegan and vegetarian options.

Macaroni fanatics can also create their very own mac and cheese dishes thanks to the ‘make your own mac’ option, where customers have the freedom to pick their base sauce out of three options and choose the toppings that they want added to this.

Real soul food doesn’t stop at mac and cheese; the Holy Moly Macaroni menu also serves alternative dishes including ‘Baby Back Pork Ribs’ and the classic ‘Chicken and Waffles’ with buttermilk fried chicken, fluffy-on-the-inside waffles and maple syrup, plus a selection of delicious sides and desserts.

John Burke at Holy Moly Macaroni comments: “It’s been a real journey for the team at Holy Moly Macaroni and we’re incredibly proud to open this restaurant that means so much to us all.

“We can’t wait to see people come together to enjoy real soul food at Holy Moly Macaroni and experience the variety of dishes our menu has to offer.”
