Bacon and beer fests are everywhere this Spring and it's a great time to be a Chicagoan. But when those fests are said and done, where should we go for more bite size bacon dishes? If you're on the hunt, try one of these three places.
Weather Mark Tavern – Bacon Wrapped Potatoes ($8.95)
The South Loop might not be Chicago’s top spot for going out, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying a great bacon dish. Potatoes and bacon seem like an unlikely combination for a melt in your mouth experience, but the roasted Yukon Gold potatoes and applewood smoked bacon do just that. Add in a side of sour cream sauce and call your friends because you’re set for a good time.
American Junkie – Bacon Wrapped Dates ($10.00)
Had Chef Kendal Duque cooked for the founding fathers, the Bill of Rights would include a shout out to these bacon wrapped dates. Stuffed with goat cheese and topped with fresh red pepper sauce, the bacon wrapped dates are the perfect for a first date or while watching the largest single-panel HD TV in the Midwest.
Bakin’ & Eggs – Flight of Bacon ($7.00)
Brunch isn’t complete without a side of bacon, but with so many types of bacon can you settle on just one flavor? Thanks to the bacon flight at Bakin’ & Eggs, your moral dilemma is over. Serving up a platter of crispy awesomeness, you’ll start the day with maple pepper, jalapeno, honey, cherry smoked and mesquite bacon. Remember, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so don't forget the flight of bacon.
