Beautiful Bacon Makes for a Beautiful Sandwich

Everyone knows we love bacon and that we judge all things solely on their bacon content. OK, so not all things, but it almost sounded believable for a minute, right?

At any rate, when you go out for lunch and order a sandwich with bacon in it, you expect to get real bacon, not some lame excuse for bacon. Limp, greasy strips of mystery ‘meat’ need not apply!

So it should come as no surprise that we frequent a hot little lunch spot called Four Moons Internet Cafe in Orangeburg, SC because it has the best looking and tasting bacon of ANY lunch spot in the area. They use good quality Applewood Bacon and cook it just right so that you get a perfect crispiness-to-meatiness ratio when you bite into your sandwich.

Need proof? We thought you would, so we asked the proprietor to snap us a picture of the bacon they use before it goes on a sandwich. Check it out!

Damn… Judging by the amount of drooling going on right now, it seems as though lunch plans just got made for tomorrow! Hope to see ya’ there!

Advice for Other Lunch Shops:

  • See the bacon above? If you bacon doesn’t like as good or better, then your sandwiches will suck moose crap!

  • No deli should even consider calling itself ‘Gourmet’ unless they take as much care and concern for the quality of the bacon they top a sandwich with as they do all the other ingredients. No one cares about a sandwich made w/ fresh bread or a fancy mustard spread if the bacon sucks, ya’ dig?

  • A lot more people judge a deli by its bacon than you think. Know why? Because delis charge extra for it and 99.9% of people inthis world pay close attention to the things they have to pay extra for. Think about it!

  • Go have lunch at Four Moons Internet Cafe, enjoy your meal, and while you’re there… try learn a thing or two about the proper usage of bacon on a sandwich, will ya’?

Question: The Better Bacon Sandwich?

OK, we have had it up to HERE with all these fast food restaurants and chain restaurants filling up the airwaves, billboards and television commercials with their “Five Dollar” and “Dollar Menu” specials. Give it up, guys… Seriously. We get it already.

Have you ever wondered what exactly makes up the components of a “Value Meal”, what grade of ingredients go into a “five dollar meal”, and/or how much better you could eat for just two or three more dollars if you gave your dining plans more though than simply recalling the last overplayed commercial you heard or saw and marching sheep to the slaughter?

Well obviously WE did think about that ‘cuz we wrote a blog posting about it after discovering that in a sleepy little town in Orangeburg, SC we can get a sandwich that looks and tastes far better than…

Five Dollar Sandwich... Looks Sad, Doesn't It?
Example of a ‘Five Dollar Special’ — Looks Kinda’ Sad, Right?

We won’t TELL you who made the sandwich above, but we feel confident you can figure that out on your own. If not, then no one, not even the God of Bacon Him or Herself can help you…

Oh, and did you even SEE any bacon on that sandwich? Nothing! Not even a small, salty sliver! Horifying! Absolutely horrifying!

Moving on, though, wouldn’t you rather stop into a place like Four Moons for lunch where you can get a sandwich like…

Four Moons Triple Decker Sandwich Has... Big Bacon!
Triple Decker Sandwich… Has Visible Bacon!

Now for just a few dollars more we can get a sandwich that has large chunks of meaty, salty, tasty bacon piled high. No brainer, right?

So to conclude, perhaps YOU ought to expand your culinary range and explore some of your local eateries so that you, too, can find your own Four Moons lunchtime feast… instead of eating another one of those bargain priced meals.

The old addage still rings as true today as it did 100′s of years ago: You Get What You Pay For!

Applewood Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

In the last More Bacon Please entry we talked about a bacon stuffed chicken breast. This time we will talk about a juicy bacon concoction called “Applewood Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin”.

At the same restaurant (Four Moons) where we spotted the bacon stuffed chicken breast we also spied the Applewood Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin… and ordered it.

With a bacon sexy description like that, could YOU resist ordering that meal? We didn’t think so.

Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast

Last weekend some family members came into town and that sort of event warrants a trip out to a fancy restaurant. Now in our experience, we have seen that most fancy restaurants don’t have any bacon items on their menus… so oh, what a sweet relief to see bacon on the menu!

Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast as described on the menu:

“Pan Roasted Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast with Summer Vegetables, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Natural Pan Juices.”

Upon seeing Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast on the menu the decision to order it for dinner happened immediately. I mean, seriously, who can say no to bacon — especially when it gets stuffed into another meat!

Gorgeous looking meal and you can clearly see how fat the chef had stuffed the chicken breast with bacon! And look! The giant hunk of meat even came with vegetables and sauce of some sort!

We apologize for not having pictures of the inside of the Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast. The damn thing tasted so good and disappeared so quickly of the plate that we didn’t have TIME to take any pictures.

Therefore, check your local restaurant menus for Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast, find a swank little joint that prepares this awesome dish and find out for yourself what the inside looks like… or you can visit Four Moons Restaurant in Orangeburg, SC like we did.
