Six Pack: Bacon Bacon Bacon

Editor’s Note: This week, we’re going to be introducing our new army of interns to you, the Foobooz readership. And it occurred to us that what better way for you to get to know them a little then for them to tell you all about something they loved to eat? Thus, we set them each to assembling their own Foobooz Six Pack, focusing on something they craved.

For our final Six Pack this week, we’d like to introduce Maegan Cadet–a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in English and Fine Arts. She’ll eat anything saturated with carbs and will drink anything with caffeine. While she is a self-professed “pretend foodie,” she prides herself in knowing a good croissant when she tastes one. 

Here’s her introductory Six Pack: Three courses of bacon-wrapped, bacon-spiked and bacon-infused goodness, proving that one can never have enough bacon (that is, until it runs out).

Bacon Starters

Bacon-wrapped scallops at Rembrandt’s

Start your meal off on the perfect footing with Rembrandt’s smoked bacon-wrapped scallops. These beautiful shellfish come swimming in Lancaster cheddar sauce, and are perfectly portioned to share with that special someone…or to devour all on your own.

Bacon Skewers at Tinto

Add a little lamb to your palette at Tinto, with their Lamb Brochettes. These skewers pair tender lamb loin with eggplant and sherry jus, then wrap it all together for you with (you guessed it) bacon.

Not Your Mom’s Meatloaf at Silk City

Silk City adds to this classic meal by adding a few twists (the best of which is bacon). The bacon-wrapped meatloaf comes with mashed potatoes, wild mushroom gravy, English peas and baby carrots.

    although i love the skewers at Tinto, there are many far more creative uses of bacon in our city, such as the bacon grease popcorn at the khyber or the bacon ice cream at cochon.

    The bacon wrapped tater tots they used to have as a special at Royal Tavern were amazing.
