Our weekly bite explores the city's food trucks, one at a time, highlighting our favorite mobile dishes and snacks.

The Truck: Bacon Bacon

The Cuisine: Bacon-laced comfort food

Specialty Items: Bacon Bouquet, Bacon Burger

Worth the Wait in Line? At peak lunchtime, it was a total 17 minutes from the end of the line to food in hand. If you like bacon, yes.

You can't argue with the straightforward nature of the Bacon Bacon truck's name: It's a two-word mission statement, warning to vegetarians and vegans, and lure that says, "Our food has bacon. Lots of it."

While the truck reportedly had a rough start, it's certainly found its groove. Fat, thick, crisp slices adorn most dishes, or if you just want to get to the point, the Bacon Bouquet ($6 for five pieces) is the mainline. The slices are perfectly crisp, and while not as transcendent as the brown sugar bacon served at Foreign Cinema, they are textbook models of how to cook bacon.

While there's no shortage of great burgers, the Bacon Burger ($8, two beef patties, bacon, sautéed onions, cheddar) stands out for its "bacon-iness." The soft brioche like bun cradles two juicy patties dressed with a mustard-mayo sauce and caramelized onions. A small skirt of flattop crunchy cheddar adds a whole other layer of fatty-salty-brittle bites that contrasts beautifully with the pile of bacon on top. It's a burger exquisitely designed to showcase the power and splendor of bacon.

Bacon Bacon may not be your nutritionist's recommended food truck, but for that bacon splurge, there's not better altar to crispy bacon.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
