Bacon remains one of the country’s most popular meats, with the Full Irish still as popular as ever. But wait one minute bacon fans, as there is good news for all you salty meat coniseurs.
Now there is a new type of bacon taking the meat industry by storm, called Millionaire’s bacon it seems to be for the rich and elite to enjoy.
Described as a more intense bacon experience and a lot posher than the standard “rasher”. The bacon is retailing in the states at the moment for up to $7 per strip of the meat, that’s €5.96 for one piece!
It seems to be worth the price though, resembling more a steak than a homely rasher. The bacon is been sold by Sweet Maple restaurant in San Francisco, much to the delight of locals who are sweeping up every bit they can get. The price doesn’t seem to deter them either!
The new bacon has seen people show up in extremely strong numbers. But just why is it so tasty? Well the answer lies in the fact it's slow cooked for hours, rather than quickly fried.
Will it come our way soon? No confirmation just yet, though we all wait in deep, drool filled, anticipation.
