Anyone who has jumped for bacon-loving joy at the announcement of Cuckoo Callay's Bacon Festival the last two years will surely be stoked with the news that the Newtown cafe is once again celebrating the noble pig in 2017.
Starting on March 14 and running for 12 weeks, the Newtown cafe will modify their menu, showcasing their best pieces of pork work. There'll be bacon burgers, bacon French toast and even a bacon ice cream. Last year they expanded from the restaurant and into a one-day festival at Central Park, but this year they'll be keeping it in-house. One thing they'll be bringing back, however, is last year's Mac Daddy — a monstrous mix of double smoked bacon, bacon mac 'n' cheese, a poached egg and fried shallots inside a croissant.
Suffice it to say, the Bacon Festival is not vegetarian friendly. Keep your snouts on the Cuckoo Callay Facebook page for the full menu.
