A Five-Part Bacon Tasting

Cheeky's Palm Springs




Last weekend on a quick escape to Palm Springs from cold and gloomy NYC, I had brunch at a stylish little restaurant called Cheeky's on North Palm Canyon Drive. Besides the fabulous modern furniture and electric orange communal dining tables, the star at Cheeky's is the extensive seasonal menu of innovative breakfast creations which changes every week. I had to opt for the five part bacon tasting (bacon flights are the new wine flights!). The tasting was comprised of a thick-cut bacon from Connecticut's Nodine's Smokehouse, Vande Rose applewood variety from Iowa, Oscar's honey-cured bacon from the Adirondacks, a turkey bacon, and a jalapeño-spiked bacon. After polishing that off, I could only handle a fruit plate with Pink Flesh honeydew and a mandatory hike in Tahquitz Canyon.
