In the past few weeks, I’ve had a couple of comments in regards to my scale for rating restaurants. Some readers, including valued friends, have called my system ridiculous, unfair, biased and self-righteous. Self-righteous? Moi??? “Do you know who I am?” “You’ve GOT to be kidding me.” I’m just kidding. Please, I’m not pious and I’m just trying to have a little fun here. How dare I rank the Oceanwise founding partner C Restaurant the same as the basa serving Cockney Kings Fish and Chips? Have I “lost my bacon and egg biscuit”? My response to these concerns is, “it is what it is”. In the immortal words of Britney Spears and Cartman from South Park, it’s “my prerogative” and “you’re not the boss of me, I’ll do what I want.”
I started the slices of bacon scale (SOB) because I love bacon. Five slices of bacon is normally my max for breakfast and a full five slices is something special in my world. I won’t lie, I’ve eaten up to ten plus slices of bacon in a single sitting, but it is not necessary to expound on my over-indulgence of my porcine friend. Most days that I enjoy bacon for breakfast, particularly when I eat out, I tend to average three slices. Anything less than three slices and I feel somewhat unsatisfied and anything more is bordering on something special. Bacon is my buddy, I like the slices of bacon scale (SOB), thus the slices of bacon scale stays.
Don’t read too deep into the slices of bacon scale. I think the real meat of my reviews are in the words I use to describe the meal. I’ve never claimed my scale to be an exact work of science and remember, it is only the opinion of one food loving chef. My goal is to suggest interesting places to eat and hopefully to entertain the reader at the same time. Thanks again for your continued support, eat bacon judiciously and where am I going to go eat next?
P.S. When you use quotation marks, do you put the periods and commas inside the quotation marks? “Inquiring minds want to know”.
