The Best Thing I Ever Ate - moved from Boston board

I've eaten a lot of different foods over the past several years, but I really don't know if I've had anything as good as the sweet and spicy bacon at Scup's in East Boston. We headed back there last night for the second time in a week and ordered a few items, among them the grilled cheese with hot mustard and the sweet and spicy bacon. I was completely bowled over by the bacon, and I wasn't the only one.
I was talking with a couple of the people there as they were closing up, but one question I forgot to ask was where they get their bacon from. Once I find out, I'll do my best to buy some for myself, if possible (though I doubt I could replicate the sweet and spicy sauce/marinade).
It's a three-way tie:
soy-ginger halibut with baby bok choy, from a now defunct restaurant called AZ in NYC
bacon swiss cheeseburger from Bar 89 in NYC--hands down, without a doubt the best cheeseburgers I've ever had, and I've tried them in many places across the country--had them from Bar 89 about 4 times now and it's still the best
the 3 styles of fish from Roy's in Waikiki Beach--AMAZING
