Not adequate bacon for a place with bacon in a title
December 20, 2015 - bbq set
Outside perspective of a grill during night
A tad late with a trend of cooking all with bacon, Sweet Bacon non-stop a doors a integrate of months ago in downtown Tijuana. They are located on a categorical highway (Revolución) between 6th and 7th, conflicting a travel from Colectivo 9 (a food justice with some-more than 9 conflicting restaurants), and subsequent to Pueblito (an commotion punk bar). The new grill is set to attract a millennial crowd.
I found Sweet Bacon totally dull on a Monday afternoon — a city itself was flattering quiet. The usually dual people sitting in a grill were a immature owners, Gaby Giordano and Eric Guillermo. The cook stood during a ready, behind a open kitchen.
Everything on a menu has bacon, including a salads and desserts. The skinny mezzanine has a prolonged dais makeshift with wooden planks and concrete blocks along a wall with tables and elementary chairs. The conflicting wall
has an open kitchen. The behind wall of a grill reads “for bacon lovers and other food addicts” and a tables have “bacON, bacOFF” signs. The usually thing a grill is blank are cinema of Kevin Bacon.
The Bacon Bombs
The appetizers are a many engaging choices: bacon bombs, pressed mushrooms, potato skins, and bacon dip. The menu offers 3 forms of burgers: honeyed bacon, sriracha vigourous bbq, and peanut butter. Having recently been eating too many burgers, we took a demeanour during a entrees: duck Cordon Bleu, blockade tip sirloin, spaghetti Carbonara, and a grilled cheese. They also have soup/salad of a day.
Whisky and beef are on my list of favorite things. However, with a cost tab of 99 pesos (around $7), my theory was that a tip sirloin wasn’t going to be a primary class meat. But we still went for it. Instead of removing a sides that came with a entree, we asked to get a bacon bombs as a replacement. It usually cost me $2 to reinstate a sides for a appetizer.
The bacon bombs were 5 cheesy potatoes on a wooden skewer wrapped in bacon with a vigourous bbq for dipping. They were fantastic.

The blockade tip sirloin, as expected, was not a primary cut from a good butcher. It had a demeanour and a ambience of a inexpensive supermarket meat, a kind used to ready travel tacos. It was surfaced with a unhappy and waste square of crispy bacon (also supermarket bought). The blockade balsamic salsa discovered a square of beef and gave it a good season to something that differently would have been miserable. Since it was happy hour, we accompanied my dish with dual Tecates for 30 pesos ($2 for 2 beers).
After we was done, Gaby, one of a owners, approached me to ask how all was. we didn’t distortion to her. “We did not wish anything on a menu to be over 100 pesos,” she said. “The duck and a tip sirloin is what we sell
the least. We put it on a menu for a comparison generation; they are a usually ones who sequence it.” Gaby told me her prophesy of a place and gave me a ambience of their BBQ Sriracha vigourous salsa and a bacon/coffee marmalade.
I went behind to Sweet Bacon a week later, now with a renewed ardour for a burger. we systematic a BBQ Sriracha vigourous burger middle done. The burger came with fries and a side of their concoction, an engaging decoction of sweet
and spicy. Tthe vigourous gave it reduction flexibility though combined small to a season (they used Minerva’s decoction from Guadalajara — a conflicting vigourous competence urge it).

The beef was luscious that a bottom bun was soaked (the bread seemed to be from Costco). For a place that focuses on bacon, we hardly even tasted pork. we approaching a burger to be bathed in their BBQ sauce, though found
the burger to usually be a unchanging one. we satisfied afterwards that a side salsa was for me to flow on a burger al gusto. The fries were customary good. we asked for some-more of a salsa for my fries given it was a usually engaging thing we tasted.
