2019 is the Year of the Pig in the Chinese Lunar Calendar which starts today. Of course as Muslims, we do not eat Pork or any other product derived from the flesh of swine, but we can eat Beef! Bacon is a popular meat item in the United States, but besides Pork Bacon, there is also Beef Bacon as well as Chicken and Turkey Bacon. There are many Halal Bacon options out there and here are 5 spots to get your fix of Halal Bacon in the Bay Area:
- The Bliss Burger from Mainstreet Burgers in Willow Glen (San Jose). Comes with Cheddar, Bacon, BBQ Sauce and Onion Rings.
