It could have been the smell of me f*cking his biatch. She warms up real nice and smelly if you know what I mean.

"Bacon Bacon is the eatery, and it's no surprise what the Haight Ashbury restaurant specializes in."

Fish & chips?

OgreMagi: believe the hype: OgreMagi: No surprise this is in Haight Ashbury.  That's like vegan hipster central of San Francisco.  Half the people who live there only do because they like to say, "I live in the Haight", which is worth something like 25 hipster points.  They can barely afford the rent and live on handouts to get by, but they live in the Haight.  The other half can't stand the hipsters, though.

Ummm... where are you getting this from? The Haight is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in SF. I strongly doubt that anyone living there lives on handouts, sans the crust kids who tend to hand out near Golden Gate Park.

...also i doubt vegan hipsters would be too fond of a food truck called Bacon Bacon.

Yes, the Haight is expensive. That was my point.  They can't afford anything but rent so they mooch off of friends and buy their clothes second hand, and try to pass that off as being cool.

And yes, they would not be fond of a food truck called Bacon Bacon.  Did you miss the part about people complaining?


Yes. Unless you are referring to your mention of non-hipsters disliking hipsters, which does not correlate with the whole 'vegan hipsters for/against bacon trucks' argument in any valid sense. Also, your assessment of the general populace of Haight-Ashbury seems pretty farfetched. Most of the real 'hipsters' have fled to Oakland in favor of cheap rent and it's flourishing music scene and subculture. Haight tends to attract a lot of post-tech boom kids, long-lifers, and almost anyone working for a startup.

Heh. I did enjoy the "They can't afford anything but rent so they mooch off of friends and buy their clothes second hand, and try to pass that off as being cool. " statement though. That cracks me up! Luckily, I'm pretty sure that for most people social mechanics have progressed beyond the 5th grade level. It... it just doesn't work like that.
Anyways, those who are concerned enough with other people's interests (whether cool, ironic, popular or obscure) to make judgement calls on them probably aren't very cool themselves.

Hence the generalizing/bashing snobsnobbery routine.

If the eatery was there cooking a lot of first, the complainer has no right to complain.

What kind of Jerk Face Jerk doesn't love bacon....      I say deport this jerk to Best Korea....

Jim_Callahan: Not seeing the issue here.

Grease smoke, even lightly greased smoke, gets kinda nasty after a while.  And by a while I mean that if your house is next to an unfiltered stove cooking nothing but bacon, within a week running your finger over the wall will drag off about an eighth of an inch of cold, unsalted lard.

And it sounds like the owner's response was basically "yeah, I can see that, as soon as a get a work permit I'll fix it."  Pretty reasonable interaction, yeah?


Yep. It must have been a slow news day because neither party seems especially angry or put out over everything. The resident (who was probably there first and doesn't want to have to move just because of a restaurant) doesn't like the scent of bacon that accumulates over time. (Which isn't nearly as nice of a smell as you'd think, believe it or not.) The owner says "fair enough, I'll apply for a permit and put in a filter" because odds are he knows how bad the smell can get as well and wants to accommodate the other person. It's not like the guy is asking the guy to leave and close the restaurant.

I worked in a restaurant that specialized in Southern cooking, which meant that bacon and pork products in general were heavily used. When you have tons and tons of grease cooked on a weekly basis, that stuff can smell pretty rank sometimes. Especially in the summer. I love bacon, but even with regularly cleaning we couldn't quite get rid of the smell of coagulated grease or keep up with how quickly that stuff can build up everywhere. Even when the smell wasn't awful, it can get pretty old smelling nothing but bacon everywhere and we had some employees that stopped eating pork products while they were working there. Crazy talk, I know, but you really don't understand how bad the smell can get until you've worked in a place that cooks a large amount of pork products.

Whilst I enjoy a good helping of bacon on the morning or a nice thick BLT in the afternoon, am I the only person in the world who is over the bacon meme?

I like bacon as much as the next person but enough already. The internet is why we can't have nice things.

Actual BLT sandwich at Tony's Restaurant in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Somewhere under that pound of bacon there's lettuce and tomato.


i find it hard to believe that there is any less than 5 pounds of bacon on that sandwich.

I think the bacon smoke is a feature, not a bug.
It's like the Bat Signal for bacon lovers!

I tried smoking my bacon with shagbark hickory wood a few weeks ago. It turned out amazing. Smoked for one hour, then right onto a hot cast iron griddle on the grill next to the smoker.

Maple bacon is disgustingly nasty.  The stink permeates everything in your house for weeks.

ArcadianRefugee: Girion47: (ignoring the whole tomato/fruit thing, because lets face it, most people consider it a veggie)

Psst: Fruits are vegetables.


I assume you're using "vegetable" in the strict botanical sense, which encompasses all plant products?

In the common culinary sense of the term, many botanical fruits are also culinary vegetables (tomatoes, peppers, squash, etc.), but many other botanical fruits remain culinary fruits (apples, oranges, pears, etc.)... I don't know why everyone always gets hung up just on tomatoes, as if they're the odd man out... There are whole bunch of botanical fruits which we classify as culinary vegetables, and no one ever seems to have a problem with those... But, some jackass always has to chime in with "Ahem, actually tomatoes are fruits not vegetables!"... They never say that about cucumbers or pumpkins or eggplants...

believe the hype: suprised i've never heard of this place, being a denizen of SF myself. turns out it's a food truck, not a restaurant -- not surprised.

although i don't get why they just don't park somewhere else...?


You live in Berkeley, but nice try.

If you'd read TFA that TFA was sourcedswiped from (Tuesday's SF Examiner), you'd find out that this isn't a truck, it's a proper restaurant on Frederick St., which (for the benefit of outlanders) is two blocks away from and parallel to Haight. The neighborhood is generally residential, and yeah, if we had a four-year fight in Noe Valley over a Korean BBQ joint, you can bet your bippy that Bacon Bacon is going to be upgrading its exhaust filtration system in the weeks to come.
 
2013-03-16 11:10:58 AM
FTA: The neighbor wants the restaurant to install a filtration system on the roof to smoke out the scent of bubbling, sizzling hog fat, the newspaper reported.

The owner of the restaurant, Jim Angelus, agreed -- as long as the city gives him the permits.


So... what's the problem? Restaurant reeks. Neighbor complains. Restaurant's willing to comply. Why is the neighbor somehow the bad guy here? Because he or she exercised his civic rights? Really? I don't see anyone being even so much as uncivil in this story - everyone's acting like adults.

manimal2878: I love bacon, but isn't the fetishizing of bacon becoming a bit retarded?


Yeah, I love bacon more than the next guy but the host on 'The United States of Bacon' is the most annoying farker in the world. I was really hoping it would be a good show too. We know, bacon is awesome. But the fake orgasmic freakouts he has whenever there's bacon in the vicinity make it too hard to watch. Now I just wish he would have the coronary and get it over.

Now, on with the bacon pron...

For those of you who don't know it's big bacon chunks double deep fried in lard then seasoned. Heavenly.

I haven't been in the Haight in several years, so I did not know the demographics had changed that much.  I have noticed the increased number of hipsters ruining otherwise great music venues in Oakland.

Also, instead of taking me too seriously, remember that this is Fark.
