A Call for Bacon
I'm on the hunt for bacon. Specifically, for places in Charleston serving bacon in interesting or innovative ways, for a feature I'm writing for the upcoming City Paper Dish issue.
A few weeks ago, I sampled the Chocolate-covered Bacon Sundae at Shine (home of my new favorite summer drink, the caipirinha). Ted's Butcherblock has a great selection of artisan bacon, including a bacon-of-the-month BLT on their cafe menu.
Last week at Fish & Farm in San Francisco I had a surprisingly good Bacon Drop cocktail, which blended apple-bacon vodka, sweet potato and molasses bourbon, smoked hickory bitters, and orange extract in a martini glass with a rim dusted with BBQ rub and half strip of good, smoky bacon as a swizzle. Is anyone in Charleston doing a similar cocktail?
Where else should I be looking for great Charleston bacon?
