We don’t often give a damn about arbitrary lists from national web sites ranking Philadelphia near the top or bottom of some category. But when national real estate site, Estately ranked Philadelphia number one for bacon lovers. Well we admit, they had us.
Among the reasons given for ranking Philadelphia number one:
- PYT’s bacon taco.
- Cochon’s deep fried oysters with bacon aioli.
- Jake’s Sandwich Board’s Turbacon sandwich.
- And of course, actor Kevin Bacon and his father, city planner Edmund Bacon.
Sounds like solid math to us.

We were impressed back in October 2012 when we learned that Center City red meat emporium Del Frisco’s had purchased nearly $900,000 worth of wine and spirits through the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board the year prior. But in our most recent report, Del Frisco’s (and two other spots) break the $1 million mark.

Tonight at 7 p.m. on Destination America, formerly Discovery Home & Leisure, is featuring four local restaurants on United States of Bacon. As you might expect there’s a ton of bacon on the show but we have to raise an eyebrow over the inclusion of McNally’s Tavern’s Schmitter. Surely a great gluttonous sandwich, but as the diagram above shows, bacon is not a normal part of the Schmitter. Now bacon is available for a dollar add-on, but who needs bacon when you already have steak, grilled salami, cheese, fried onions, tomatos, special sauce and even more cheese?

PYT’s Tommy Up loves himself some Han Dynasty. So this week his Northern Liberties burger spot is offering a special burger created by Han Chiang himself. The burger is a blend of dan-dan sauce marinated pork belly and beef patty topped with spicy cucumbers and dan-dan aioli, served on a soft Chinese bun. Each burger is accompanied by a side of sichuan fries.
Get it now, because this special won’t last forever.
