10 Bacon-Wrapped Dishes That Feel Like Presents
Bacon is a gift that keeps giving.
(SPOT.ph) Bacon. We've swooned over and written about it before, but its magic hasn't mellowed at all. Because anything with bacon is pure pleasure and because there's nothing more exciting and mouthwatering than seeing a dish wrapped in these crispy, meaty strips, we've compiled 10 dishes that will totally put your bacon cravings in overdrive.
Lazy Bastard's Honey Parmesan Dog (P200)
Here, bacon gives a hotdog the love it deserves by holding it in a tight hug. Not only does it add texture to the hotdog, it embellishes a brawnier flavor, too! The result is an explosion of sweet and salty flavors bite after bite. It's no wonder this hotdog sandwich currently holds the top spot on our Top 10 Hotdogs list.
By the way, Lazy Bastard also has bacon-wrapped tater tots!
Lazy Bastard is at 22 Jupiter Street, Makati City. Read more about Lazy Bastard.
The Nook's Bacon-wrapped Chicken (P140)
Crisp bacon wrapping itself around juicy chicken provides just the little lift in taste and texture that white meat needs. Each piece is lightly dipped in honey, mimicking a honey-cured bacon effect. It's the perfect munchie to enjoy with a good book.
The Nook is at Maginhawa Street, Teachers Village, Quezon City. Read more about The Nook.
Skinita's Bacon and Quail Eggs (P50)
So, here's a fun way to enjoy bacon and (quail) eggs. Each stick gives you three delicious mouthfuls of creamy, crispy happiness. The sweet sauce gives it a yummy teriyaki-like glaze.
Skinita is at Unit D, D'Strip Building, 20 United Street, Kapitolyo, Pasig City. Read more about Skinita.
The 5th Taste's Bacon Prawn Tempura (P300)
The chef at The 5th Taste decided one day to wrap shrimp with a strip of bacon, cover it in breadcrumbs, then create a rather meaty version of tempura. It's definitely a change of texture from your usual Japanese-style fried shrimps, but we do like how it gives a little more weight to this light dish.
The 5th Taste is at 453 P. Guevarra Street, San Juan City. Read more about The 5th Taste.
Livestock's Pig Wings (P320 to P440)
Have you ever wondered what could make your wings taste better? Have you ever tried bacon? Imagine the smoky and spicy flavors of these hot wings. Imagine that with bacon. Livestock delicately bandages bacon strips around hefty pieces of wings, douses them in sauce, and serves bacon bliss on a plate.
Livestock is at 34 Sergeant Esguerra Street, Quezon City. Read more about Livestock.
Milky and Sunny's Wrap O Bacon (P195)
Is it savory or is it sweet? Is it an appetizer or is it dessert? These six nibbles boggle the mind. This breakfast hub presents a rather novel take on wicked Oreos—wrapping the sweet chocolate cookies in salty cured meat and deep-frying them! The flavors combine really well.
The Wrap O Bacon is available only at Eton Parkview Condominium, Gamboa Street corner Rada Street, Makati City. Read more about the Wrap O Bacon.
Osaka Ohsho's Mixed Mushrooms and Bacon (P310)
The Japanese love bacon, and Osaka Ohsho has a whole mini menu featuring eats wrapped in the good stuff. Amid bacon-wrapped asparagus and bacon-wrapped salmon, we love the earthy and savory combination. Shiitake, eringi, and shimeji brown come smashing together for a loud mushroom-y bite, with bacon serving as the equalizer.
Osaka Ohsho is at 3/F SM Mega Fashion Hall, Mandaluyong. Read more about Osaka Ohsho.
Deep-Fried Bacon Burger from Zark's (P240)
This is how Zark's wraps presents–with bacon. You've heard of restaurants adding bacon between the buns? Well, Zark's takes that several steps further by mummifying this innocent hamburger into a bacon edifice.

Bacon Cheese Bombs from Mati's Meat and Bread
As if gooey, breaded cheeseballs aren't enough of a reward, try wrapping some bacon around them! Mati's co-owner Paul Macasaet invented these bites of awesome on a whim, but we're big believers that one good thing plus another good thing always leads to an even better thing (well, in this case, anyway). The bacon actually cuts the richness of the cheese.
Mati's Meat and Bread is at Festival Mall, Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Read more about Mati's Meat and Bread.
Bacon-Wrapped Meatballs (P295) from Morganfield's
These six meaty balls are deliciously deep-fried and covered in bacon. You can have it with some lettuce leaves for some Asian-style enjoyment (and to cut the richness), but don't forget to ask for the mustard. That sharp bite will provide the balance you'll look for.
Morganfield's is at Uptown Place, 36th Street corner 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City.
