WATCH: These Dishes Are Just so Much Better With Bacon
Bacon with a twist? Try these savory eats.
(SPOT.ph) It’s a universal fact that bacon is one of the most well-liked dishes out there. Even more so when you mix it with other dishes—it has been proven that bacon makes everything look and taste extra special. In fact, we were able to find five very good examples:
FAT’s Fat Poutine
Poutine is a delectable combination of fries, cheese, and gravy. Still, it can be improved with the help of bacon. The mild saltiness of bacon bits and bone marrow complements the original flavors of the dish.
FAT is located on Rizal Drive, Forbes Town.
L’Entrecôte’s Oysters Rockefeller with Bacon
While any oyster dish is appetizing, you can never go wrong by adding bacon bits in it. You get the best of both worlds—seafood and pork. An unconventional pairing, but tasty nonetheless.
L’Entrecôte is located on Forbestown Road, Forbes Town.
Keizo Gastropub’s Bacon Cheese Maki and Bacon Cherry Tomato Maki
What’s unique about these maki is that they’re wrapped in bacon. Mozzarella cheese and cherry tomatoes are tucked in bacon blankets—they’re flavorful and very easy to eat. If you're looking for a new type of Japanese barbeque, these two will not disappoint.
Keizo Gastropub is located on Forbestown Road, Forbes Town.
Wrong Ramen’s FU Ramen
A big bowl of noodles, egg, ham, grilled tomatoes, and bacon will give you your ramen fix, and then some. The creamy and slightly sweet broth is a perfect match for the bacon’s saltiness, which makes the dish extra flavorful.
Wrong Ramen is located on Forbestown Road, Forbes Town.
Dwntown & Halsted’s Bacon Wrapped Chicken
This dish works precisely because of its simplicity. The familiar, comforting flavors of chicken and bacon come through in perfect balance, creating a savory combination. This Dwntown & Halsted creation comes with risotto, making it a full meal that’s big enough for two.
Dwntown & Halsted is located at Burgos Park, Forbes Town.
The Bowery’s Bacon Shot
While this is technically a drink, it deserves its moment in the spotlight because of its uniqueness. It’s a shot of cold bourbon whiskey with bacon sitting on top and a spread of peanut butter on the side of the glass. The best way to down it? Eat the bacon, take the shot, and lick the peanut butter.
The Bowery is located on Rizal Drive, Forbes Town.
