Many of us have a love affair with bacon, we love it in things, next to things, the thought of it often make our mouths water. I want to know what resturants (LA area) do amazng things with bacon. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. Bring it on!!!

  1. I hate to sound redundant, but Rockenwagner's R Bakery on Washington in Mar Vista, and his 3 Square bakery on Abbot Kinney in Venice has two killer baked items. The Bacon Cheddar Twist is a pastry made of pretzel dough with bacon and cheddar cheese twisted into it, then is sprinkled with poppy and sesame seeds and more cheddar cheese, and then is baked. The finished product looks somewhat like a mutated donut twist that is oozing with cheese and bacon, but it tastes great. The other item is a bacon cheese scone. Bacon and cheddar cheese is mixed in with the dough, along with sliced green onions - a nice touch. The dough is cut into triangles and baked. It's obviously more dense and savory. I've had either item for breakfast or lunch. They both go well with salads and soups.

    1. Zip Fusion in downtown LA (on Traction) has a deep fried asparagus wrapped in bacon.

      1. I just went to the Villiage Idiot last week on Melrose. Had the warm frisee salad with generous bits of smoky bacon, fingerling potatoes, boiled egg and a sherry wine vinaigrette. The bacon definitely made the salad. A must try!

        1. Since you did mention breakfast, lunch or dinner -- it's only appropriate you check out BLD, they have some wondrous bacon dishes.

          I also like Marston's too for my homestyle-ish breakfast bacon-ladened grub.


          1. I ADORE the bacon dessert at Providence, and the "pig candy" at Lou.
