If you’re one of the many who nearly went into a panic at the talk that there was going to be a bacon shortage in 2013, you can rest easy in knowing that there will reportedly be no shortage of the pork product in the United States.
New Yorkers love bacon, but in a city full of eateries that pride themselves on putting out unique offerings to their customers, you can be sure that there are plenty of interesting food items that go right to the heart of the bacon lovers who can’t get enough.
As much as guys love cupcakes, sitting down to a pretty floral topped cupcake or getting them as gifts isn’t exactly ideal, which is where Butch Bakery comes in. Amongst their offerings includes the Home Run cupcake which consists of “peanut butter cake with banana bavarian cream & crumbled bacon” and their Driller cupcake which consists of “maple cake topped with crumbled bacon and loaded with milk-chocolate buttercream.” If your man likes cupcakes and bacon, chances are he won’t be able to turn these down. They deliver in Manhattan, Queens or Brooklyn for a $10 fee.
Head over to Traif NY on South 4th Street in Brooklyn and you’ll find several dishes on their menu that include bacon, but the most interesting is the Bacon Doughnuts. They’re deep-fried, covered in dulce de leche then topped off with bacon. New take on breakfast or lunch, anyone?
If you’d rather drink your bacon, stop by Double Down Saloon in NYC which offers up a Bacon Martini. It involves serving chilled bacon-infused vodka in a martini glass that has bacon bits at the bottom. Drink up!
Vosges takes their bacon and chocolate combinations very seriously and have an entire section devoted to the various concoctions. They offer a variety of bacon chocolatey goodness including Bacon Caramels, Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix, Bacon Truffles and Bacon Bars. They have locations across the city including one on Madison Avenue and one on Spring Street.
If there was a place where you could meet all your bacon-loving needs, Baconery would be it. Located on 18th Street, it’s nearly impossible to detail all the bacon-themed products they offer. Just some of the items you can find include Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies, White Chocolate Bacon, Bacon Marshmallow Bars, Bacon Brownies and Maple Bacon Blondies. They also allow you to order online, so have at it!
Let’s hear it NYC! What are your favorite bacon-themed foods?
