It’s another one of those food holidays, but this one seems to have some real merit – after all, anyone who eats meat LOVES bacon. So to celebrate Bacon Lovers’ Day, we put together a list of four great restaurants with bacon centric dishes that you can pig out on.
Unwine’d and Tapped
Although you may have had a long day at work, do NOT forget to feed the beast. Relax at unWine’d & Tapped to delight yourself in either the Bacon Flight or the Shrimp Bacon & Bleu along with a nice (BIG) glass of wine.
If you are craving a light yet SAVORY taste of bacon on Bacon Lovers’ Day, order Bacon-in -a-Glass from Leon’s Full Service. This appetizer is served with peanut butter, which may seem like an odd combination, but it compliments the bacon OH SO WELL. This duo may expand your taste buds. Sounds like a win-win situation.
Whether you are in an omnivorous or carnivorous mood, Kevin Rathbun Steak offers some AMAZING options. Devour the THICK-cut bacon appetizer, spinach salad with hot bacon dressing, or the 12oz Prime Wagyu Ribeye Burger…maybe order all three options if you find yourself feeling a little low on iron.
Whenever you find yourself in the mood for bacon TAPAS or DRINKS, swing by The Iberian Pig in downtown Decatur! The Apple-wood Smoked Bacon wrapped Medjool dates and the Oyster BLT Pintxo fried oysters will cause your eyes to become bigger than your stomach because you will NEED to have both. Accompany your tapas with the not so bitter Iberian Old Fashioned since it is made with bacon infused rye.
