A few years ago, when Twisted Spoke still had a Wrigleyville outpost, a bunch of us were there after WhiskeyFest. At one point, Mitch (one of the owners) reached over the bar and handed me a plate. "What is it?" I asked. "Just eat it," he replied. I presented it to the rest of the group. It was little nuggets of breaded and deep-fried something. It was delicious but it still wasn't obvious what it was so I asked Mitch again. "Deep fried bacon" was the reply. Several people gasped. It was as if he had said, "deep fried baby." So good, but so wrong.
And now perfect with maple-flavored bourbon.
Actually, they debuted KCSM with a pig roast in NYC.
The next time you come to Texas I'll take you to Snook. They have deep fried bacon served with a side of country gravy. mmm mmmm
