All-Pork Restaurant Opens in Chicago

Chef David Burke has opened Burke's Bacon Bar, a carry-out restaurant in Chicago that puts pork into its dishes---with an emphasis on bacon. Denise I. O'Neal of the Chicago Sun-Times reports:

Varieties include five-spice duck (smoked Peking duck, Chinese bacon (pork belly), hoisin sauce, cucumber cilantro and scallions in a steamed bun; 50 cents extra); banh mi (chicken liver-bacon salad, bacon, pickled vegetables, herbs and lime on a baguette ) and the Big Kahuna Spamwich (barbecued spam, pineapple slaw, bacon crumbs, homemade pickles on a King’s Hawaiian roll). Soups, salads and sides are also available. Desserts include bacon chocolate chip cookies— “delish”— and bacon peanut brittle.

“Bacon could be the one legal drug, because once you taste it you’re hooked,” Gresh said.

Trending next at the bacon bar? Body products including lip balms and soaps, and there’s even talk of a bacon cake down the road.
