Go lb. Salt Releases their Sriracha Bacongo lb. salt Sriracha Bacon

With the success of go lb. salt’s Sriracha salt and seasonings released this past summer came a number of requests from customers to make a Srirach Bacon. Well, ask and you shall receive! “We are happy to be the only bacon producer in the country with a product like this. It’s got an incredible flavor profile and just the right amount of heat,” said go lb. salt Co-Founder Aaron Eckburg.

Sriracha is the third Nationally exclusive flavor of this dry cured and hand crafted bacon in the “Bring Home the Bacon” lineup after Black Truffle and Chocolate. Sriracha bacon is made from happy pigs that are all-natural, heritage bred, vegan fed, free range and pasture raised, without hormones or antibiotics.

Perfect Pear Bistro Celebrated National Pear Day

The Perfect Pear Bistro seems like the perfect spot to celebrate National Pear Day, but this quaint little spot is upping the ante by offering a 50% discount on all menu items that include pears. Their menu boasts many such dishes like their Tukee Pear; a crispy quesadilla filled with pear, bacon, arugula along with pepper jack cheese. You can also load up on their Perfectly Grilled Cheese comprised of brie, a four cheese blend, arugula and crispy bacon served on a grilled spiced pear bread.

With a location in Ahwatukee and a brand new location in Tempe, Perfect PearBistro is the ideal place to partake in this tasty holiday. The restaurant offers a menu full of fresh and high quality ingredients, but their food items made specifically with pears are like no other.
