A restaurant in Philadelphia constructed a taco shell out of ... bacon!
PYT restaurant will sell bacon taco shell tacos for a limited time. The burger joint will only make 20 bacon tacos per day, probably because the shells take some work to make.
PYT's Facebook page explains that the tacos are filled with: "a taco seasoned beef burger, shredded cheddar & pepper jack cheese, shredded lettuce, fresh pico de gallo and an avocado & cilantro ranch sauce."
PYT employees can take credit for being the first fast-casual restaurant to serve a bacon taco shell, but they aren't the first people to come up with the idea. In fact, the bacon taco has been popular in the blogosphere for quite some time now. A quick search online found a bunch of different blog posts with pictures and directions for making a bacon taco shell.
** One site, bacontoday.com, suggests making the Bacos (their special name for the bacon tacos) by weaving a bacon shell out of raw bacon and then baking it in the oven over easily constructed homemade aluminum foil molds.
