Bacon Bacon: The Food Truck Dedicated to the Noble Pig…

Before finally giving in and reluctantly surrendering my greenbacks to a truck called Bacon Bacon – that was recently parked outside the F*ck Your New Year’s Resolution Party – it was obvious that people have always had a strong affection for bacon.

OWFT: Get yo’ bubala on for under $10

About a year ago I saw a photo of a deconstructed Reuben of sorts. I thought it looked amazing and the concept was amazing. A few months ago, I found out it was the Old World Food Truck’s pop-up and I knew I had to get down on it. When
