Best Montreal Bacon

There ain't no fakin' when you love the bacon.
Best Montreal Bacon

Photo cred- Tina Wong

We all love bacon. Kevin Bacon, Mavis Beacon, Deacon Jones, and Clay Aiken -- they all love bacon. Vegetarians and vegans love bacon. Even Neil Armstrong and Buzz Lightyear love bacon, and they've been to the moon(s). Here's some of Montreal's best butcher shops and places to find bacon of all varieties: smoked, double-smoked, back bacon, etc. Some of these butcher shops may only have bacon at certain times, other times they'll be able to cut you something thin, fresh, and plump to fry up. Like the man said to the pig, that'll do.
