Ladies and gentlemen, let me just say up front that I am in full agreement with the internet of at least one thing: I love bacon. Bacon is delightful. You can eat it, you can make it your life’s work to wrap it around things, you can dip it in chocolate, and it comes in (kosher, fat-free) salt form. Hell, you can put bacon on top of every website on the internet - for example, Bacoogle, the Baconton Post, and even my own blog, covered in a delicious slice of bacon.
That’s why, when I went to Rising Roll today for lunch for the first time since its opening, I knew exactly what I wanted: the BBLT. That’s the bacon, bacon, lettuce, and tomato. When the nice lady at RR was making the sandwich, I noticed she had a great handful of bacon and was replacing a few strips back into the … I don’t know what you call it. Bacon-keep-crispy-and-warm-thing. And I thought, man, this is going to take a while.
Little did I know she was only going to put back a few slices, then put the rest straight onto the sandwich. Internet, I was not disappointed.
