Channel 4′s Bacon Explosion is Available for Lunch (and is Under $10!)
Apparently the Chef at Channel Four took exception to Grub Street’s post about the bacon explosion now being offered at the restaurant. He emailed them to complain that they had used words like “hilarious” “puke” and “vomit” to describe something they had never even tried. (If you are a little behind, the Irish pub Channel Four, on 48th btw. 5+6th, is serving a version of the “Bacon Explosion” a monstrosity that made the food blog rounds at the beginning of the year.) Hilarious, puke and vomit all come to mind… as does “deliciousness” and “omg must have”.
GS also admits to being sarcastic about ordering it a day in advance… apparently it’s “tastefully served” as two thin slices inside a slider bun. Slider? You mean… a sandwich! If this thing is under $10, it would be perfect for the Midtown Lunch Sandwich Challenge!
I called Channel Four this morning, and found out that the chef changes it up every day depending on how he feels. Sometimes as a slider, sometimes over toast… sometimes it comes with tater tots, and sometimes with corn pudding. All depends on the day. The good news… it’s $9.95! The bad news… they were pretty clear it was more of a snack than a meal. That’s kind of disappointing. Maybe the chef will create a $10 sandwich version for Midtown Lunchers. Can you say Midtown Lunch Sandwich Challenge?!?! C’mon Channel Four, let’s make this happen…
