This image could totally go under bacon porn for me. This rich, delicious chocolate dessert is the Bacon Chocolate Crunch Bar from Animal Restaurant in Los Angeles. Located on Fairfax just a couple blocks from hipster joints like Largo’s little theatre and Canter’s, this restaurant is sure to be a smash!
The two dudes behind this chocolately bacon creation are, well, Two Dudes Catering, renegade Hollywood caterers and now owners and chefs of Animal. And soon they’ll be world-famous when Food Network releases their docu-series based on the boys on October 16. Before that, you can buy their new cookbook, Two Dudes, One Pan, due in stores next week! Exciting times for a couple of dudes for Florida.
According to a review of the new Animal Restaurant, L.A. Times food critic S. Irene Virbila found the meat-centric restaurant a bit too much. Too rich. Too heavy. Too salty and sweet and lacking in vegetables. Maybe it’s not the place you want to go for a cool summer meal, but come this fall it will be the perfect place for a carnivore’s comfort food. And the best part is, she gave “best dish” props to the Bacon Chocolate Crunch Bar.
I do believe I’ll give this restaurant a go next time I’m in the L.A. area. Of course by then they’ll be so famous I’ll need to call weeks in advance to get a table. I think I’m up to the challenge.
