Maybe you’ve seen the “Mac” truck buzzing around Buffalo. It is a cool looking truck, but even better is what comes out of the truck- Mac & Cheese extraordinaire. NOT your momma’s mac & cheese. This stuff rocks.
The truck and the business is the sole responsibility of Falynn Koch. A born again Buffalonian (she returned to Buffalo after living in Georgia for a while), Falynn is the owner, operator, cook, driver and the chief bottle washer.
FallyMac is all mac and cheese with different toppings and breadcrumbs. “We have special combinations for the Macs, toppings, and crumbs, that we suggest to make up the specialty macs, but people are free to pick and choose any combo or number of toppings they feel like,” said Falynn. At least one specialty mac, and all its components, is taken off the menu and replaced by another every two weeks to give people a chance to try out different flavors.
I want to break this down a bit because the mix and match menu is pretty neat. There are specifically flavored macs to choose from – which could be quite enough for some people – sometimes less is more:
- Super cheesy orange cheddar mac ($4)
- Sweet caramelized onion mac ($5)
- Curried apple and butternut squash mac ($5)
Order any of those downright cool flavors, then add toppings – Cinn Sauce, Spicy pulled pork, or Apple slaw with Japanese brown curry, each +$1.50. THEN add breadcrumbs – Parmesan toasted breadcrumbs, French fried onions or Minced garlic clove breadcrums, each +$.50.
They also have desserts – almost always whoopie pies, which are like a cookie/frosting sandwich. Some recent flavors on the menu were pumpkin and chocolate peanut butter.
If you’re wondering, the truck is named after the owner. Fally being a nickname for Falynn. The truck was bought at Kitchens on Wheels in New Braunfels, Texas (between Austin and San Antonio), they have been buying, selling and making food trucks for over a decade. The outside design was a collaboration between comic book artist Tait Howard, and local marketing group The Martin Group.
To be quite honest, I’ve tried mac from other food trucks and Fallymac is on a whole other level. If you see the truck just stop and try it out. You won’t be disappointed and Falynn will appreciate your business.
