Bacon in a Glass



I swear this will not turn into just a bacon-lovers blog. Oh wait. That actually sounds good, AsianCajuns Eatin' Bacon: our exploits of bacon eating all over town (and why we no longer fit into anything but kingsized sheets). Yum!

Well, potential muumuu-wearing bacon lovers or no, I have to give some background to the recent Food Porn post. That glistening, crispy, smokey bacon is from Leon's Full Service: a new favorite restaurant here in Decatur. I'm not sure if it will be fully embraced by hardcore foodies, but the ambience, terrific staff and great selection of libations will be embraced by all other people who enjoy a tipple and some tasty food.



My bf and I dashed into Leon's when we got caught in the rain Saturday and proceeded to eat our way through the afternoon: bacon in a glass served with a side of the best organic peanutbutter, a blackened-shrimp gyro (a little spicy for me, but a delight for him), a side of arugula with caramelized peanuts, delicious frittes with massaman curry dipping sauce, and our new favorite Belgian, Saison Dupont.

Nom, nom, nom, nommm... Muumuu schmuumuu. Sounds worth it to me!

Oh god, I am trapped at my desk, please stop making me so hungry! In all seriousness though that sounds glorious. My man and I keep threatening to do a mini southern tour, you know, for restaurant research. We're definitely going to have to come check out your neck of the woods. There is nothing I love more than bacon, if you want to make a bacon lovers blog, I'm in! Seriously, we can discover bacon worldwide in all of its glorious forms. Yum.

HA! I was there last Sunday. I'm not a huge fan of bacon, but they were sold out that night so it must be exceptional (or southerners might just be chatty fatties). I loved their grits, though.
