Earlier this fall, Restaurant 3 was again having their infamous Bacon Week. Yes, you read correctly. During that week span, they were highlighting items featuring bacon on their menu. They even had a special 3 course bacon centered prix fixe menu. So of course, being the bacon lover that I am and the adventurer, I decided to venture there with 3 other brave souls who couldn’t resist the lure of bacon!
What was looking to be a great meal turned out to be bacon overload! Not only did we all order the prix fixe tasting menu, but we even got some extra bacon appetizers. So what was supposed to be a 3 course bacon meal turned instead to a 5 course bacon meal. Needless to say, we had our fill of bacon.
I think the highlight for me from this night was the dessert. Believe it or not, we actually had room for a bacon themed dessert! We all got the bacon studded waffle with maple bacon ice cream.
At first glance, this just seemed like a very odd combination, a bacon waffle with bacon ice cream? But upon taking my very first bite, it was an insane combination, the sweet and savory mixed with crunchy and chewy. It worked very well together. It reminded me of breakfast and was rather refreshing. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed my dessert. And for all you who are interested, you’d be happy to know that Restaurant 3 has this dessert on their regular menu as well!
