Australian Restaurant Unveils $120 Bacon and Egg Sandwich

When you sponsor an event called ‘Bacon Week,’ you automatically have our attention but one Australian restaurant is turning things up a notch with a $120 sandwich that features bacon, eggs and a slew of specialty ingredients.

4Fourteen, an upscale restaurant in a suburb of Sydney, will be offering the special menu item for one week in celebration of Australian Bacon Week. The sandwich features award-winning bacon from a local farm, a duck egg pan-fried in truffle butter, roasted foie gras, crème fraiche, smoked dried tomato, shaved truffles and 18-month cave-aged English cheddar, all sandwiched between two halves of a handmade brioche bun. If you’re still on the fence, it comes with a side of chips and shaved truffle aioli to help seal the deal.

Oddly, even the head chef isn’t sure about this one. “It’s not something I ever thought I’d be doing but it will be interesting to see how many we’ll sell,” said chef Carla Jones. “I reckon some people will buy it just to see what it’s like. I’m not sure I’d eat it — I’m not that into truffles and stuff like that.”

Two-thirds of bacon in Australia is imported, equating to over $500 million annually. So bacon is a big business for the Aussies, and Bacon Week was created to help promote the quality of Australian pork. While we can’t say what this event says about the quality of pork down under (no, that’s not a euphemism—although it probably could be), a $120 bacon sandwich will definitely have people talking about it.
