    Hey all,

    I know that a lot of you have a lot of appreciation for BACON, that most delectable smoked meat. I think it's high time that we started a thread to share our love of bacon.

    This weekend I'm hosting some friends from out-of-town, and while I was taking them on a tour of Granville Island we stumbled upon an outpost of pure paradise, a little restaurant where EVERYTHING on their menu includes bacon:

    I had the Bacon and Duck Rillette Poutine, but here's the rest of the menu from an online article:

    Start things off with a West Coast cobb salad ($ 10), featuring bacon lardons, heirloom tomatoes, Quebec blue cheese and smoked salmon (A lardon, if you’re curious, is just as tasty and healthy as it sounds: a big old cube of pork fat). Or you can go high-class with bacon & duck rillette poutine ($ 8.50), made with Canadian curds and caramelized onions.

    Ready for the main courses? The BLLT ($ 12) offers a gourmet take on the classic sandwich. The extra L stands for lobster. Meanwhile, fish and bacon tacos ($ 7) wed Ontario pickerel with crispy bacon and apple-radish slaw. Then there’s the beef-and-bacon whistle dog, a supercharged hotdog served with smoked cheddar and bacon jam. Finally, true bacon-philes can dispense with the trimmings and just opt for the Box O’ Bacon ($ 8.00): six strips of pepper candied bacon served with rye chocolate dipping sauce.


    Yeah, I was thinking of Ariodante when considering making the post. icon_biggrin.gif

    All of a sudden so fuckin' hungry!

    I wonder if they have flavoured bacons!

    I don't think I could eat bacon jam or chocolate/pepper bacon though. icon_eek.gif

    There is no better way to wake up on a cold, winter morning with the scent of a log fire burning, coffee, pancakes and BACON wafting through the air. AHHHHHHH!

    Ah... since it's a "holiday" of sorts, I had waffles and bacon this morning. icon_biggrin.gif

    Now I've just got to add about five miles on an upwind loop to my afternoon ride icon_confused.gif
