From https://www.standard.co.uk/goingout/restaurants/hungover-try-a-bacon-roll-infused-with-five-espresso-shots-a3709356.html

There are Christmas party season hangover cures, and then there's a bacon roll infused with five shots of espresso.

Soho restaurant The Diner is catering to Londoners who over-indulge this year with the so-called "Ba-coffee Roll". It is made of a brioche bun, boosted with two shots of espresso, bacon infused with maple syrup and coffee and - to sweeten things up - a whipped honey butter laced with coffee bean essence.

[Matthew Ford, Head of Operations] said: "The challenge has been to balance the natural bitterness in the coffee, with sweeter ingredients to create something that tastes amazing. "By using a naturally sweeter brioche dough and infusing both coffee and maple syrup with the bacon we feel like we've created something so good it's practically medicinal."

[...] The roll costs £3.95 and is available from the restaurant, on Ganton Street, via Deliveroo until December 17. There will also be a ba-coffee role[sic] giveaway at Golden Square, Soho, and Tottenham Court Road station this Friday at 8am.

    've never tried one but bought one for a friend once who rejected it after one bite. I smelled it though and it really isn't something people should eat, it smells way too greasy and way too sweet at the same time.

      That could really describe anything at White Castle.

    Eat all the gherkins, sure, but that's only so that it's easier to drink all of the water. Rebuild your biome after flushing it through with all that pasteurised carbonated water that you pretend is beer.

      Stay away from vinegar pickles.
      Sour cabbage or gherkins pickled in brine (lactobacillus species, lactic acid rather than acetic one).

      Anyone try the “Tropickles" fruit punch pickles? Yes, they are real.

    I can just see customers dropping like flies from the triple sugar, caffeine, bacon hit. At least they'll die with a smile on their face.

    Most chefs with hangovers will come up with dishes like this one.

      But chefs have no more insight than the common man on the street.
      Just a lot more customers to get useless stories from.

    Bacon is usually disgusting with grease and pork flavor. Caffiene is horrible. Sounds disgusting. Just drink better alcohol and don't get a hangover.

    You're so far behind the U.S. in obesity (U.S. is #12, U.K #33 [procon.org]) that you had to do something.

    What's more, the U.K needs better hangover cures if they're going to pick up ground on Belarus [wikipedia.org].

    Jolly good show!
