Please Define Bacon For A British Visitor

pinchy | Oct 25, 2008 03:51 PM

Hello, I'm a newbie UK chowhound and I was just wondering what people from manhattan mean when they say Bacon? I am going to be visiting Manhattan for the first time in a couple of months (very excited about all the food adventures I am going to have) and although this is a question that has been on my mind for a while, it seems particularly relevant now. You might think it's a very odd question, but in my experience US bacon has always been very different to UK bacon. The US bacon I have had has always been very streaky and very crispy. UK bacon tends to be leaner and much meatier. Soz if this is a bit of a derail, but I have difficulty picturing it all otherwise...
