There’s this little Belgium restaurant / pub in Royal Oak, MI called Bastone’s.Â It’s quickly becoming a default place for when my boss and I have to entertain co-workers or partners from out of town.Â They have a very interesting menu and make all their own beer (which is quite tasty!).
So yesterday, we had the folks from TOMCAR Australia* in town and we all went out for dinner at Bastone’s.Â We took way to long to decide our mains as we were engaged in beer consumption and conversation.Â So we finally get to ordering and I start scrambling because I barely looked at the menu (the only thing I saw was that they changed their mac & cheese where before it was thisÂ GREAT black truffle mac & cheese to now a spinach and artichoke mac & cheese…yuck!).Â Boss man orders a pizza and I think quickly, that sounds good, so my eyes quickly scan the pizza section and I see the word “bacon”.Â So of course, what do I order?Â The bacon pizza.
The pizza’s are individual 12″ pies, a good size for me.Â I can typically put down a whole pizza from CPK and those are about the size.Â This pizza was soooooooo rich however, I only could eat three slices!!! (SHOCK!!!) Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious, it was just a little to decadent.Â It was made with a white sauce, fontana cheese, bacon and caramelized onions.Â There were real good size slices of bacon on the pie with pretty even coverage.Â The way that bacon and fontana blended, with the cheese taking in the bacon grease as it cooked…YUMMY!
I feel compelled to give Bastone’s, for this pizza only……
Eight piggies eating bacon!Â While it was delicious, with all that richness it was just a little too much!
* It seems I have a bacon compatriot from the land down under.Â I will be sharing his “Bacon Chronicles” in the coming weeks.
