Over at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs, they’re serving the Temple of Bacon, a Stonehenge-like configuration of five candied bacon strips covered in chocolate and presented in a smoke-filled dome, all for just $13.00.
The bacon is thick-cut and applewood smoked; the milk chocolate comes from around the corner at The Ganachery and has a chipotle ganache. Those are many of our favorite words, all in one sentence. We wanted to love this, truly we did, and we might have been blissfully happy, if not for the smoke.
The smoky flavor is so strong that it overpowers everything else. We learned that they pump smoke into the dome via a rubber hose immediately before presentation, which just puts unpleasant pictures in our heads. Both the bacon and chocolate are masked by what tastes like a dump of liquid smoke flavoring. Sigh, we mourn for what might have been.
What do you think about a snack like this? Does it tempt you or is a Temple of Doom? Let us know in the comments.
