The legion of people who love bacon is only growing each year. And rightfully so. However, it’s a bit tiresome to just have it on the side of your plate during an English Breakfast or limply hanging on to a few prawns. Bacon deserves better than that. And thankfully restaurants and cafes in the city seem to agree. LBB finds the places in the city where you indulge in bacon worship.

One of their bestsellers on the appetisers list, the Cheesy Potato Skins with Bacon is just the thing to perk you up. While they have a vegetarian version, we recommend that you stick with cheese-oozing, potato skins with shimmering specks of bacon on them.

Gooey cheese wrapped in perfectly grilled slivers of bacon, spiced up with a chilli relish. The Bacon and Cheese Bombs at this restaurant ticks off all the right flavour boxes, we must say. Also on the menu is the TBR Nasty where you get bacon sitting on top of two beef patties, cheddar, Arugula, caramelised onions and mustard mayonnaise relish.
