Philadelphia Named Number One Bacon City in USA

bacon-shell-burger-taco

We don’t often give a damn about arbitrary lists from national web sites ranking Philadelphia near the top or bottom of some category. But when national real estate site, Estately ranked Philadelphia number one for bacon lovers. Well we admit, they had us.

Among the reasons given for ranking Philadelphia number one:

  • PYT’s bacon taco.
  • Cochon’s deep fried oysters with bacon aioli.
  • Jake’s Sandwich Board’s Turbacon sandwich.
  • And of course, actor Kevin Bacon and his father, city planner Edmund Bacon.

Sounds like solid math to us.
