Brunch with bacon?

I'lll be headed back to Bahrain next week. My husband and I would like to have a brunch (or even late lunch) that includes bacon. Ric's doesn't get the best of reviews. I'm just wondering if there are other places about that we can try. I don't know Bahrain well (coming from Saudi) so locations would be appreciated.

You are in a muslim country - why would you be looking for bacon?

I go a lot for brunches, the best brunch you can find here is in Muju, the dragon resort in Amwaj and in Movenpick near the airport, both on Fridays but you will need a reservation. Movenpick is the best though. Bacon? Hmmm not sure, we wouldn't go if they served pork so can't help you on that.

If you are looking for breakfast with bacon then try Jims restaurant, The country club or the British club. As for brunches you won't find bacon at muju but you will at the Crowne Plaza, it's the best of the bunch at the mo in my opinion. Happy bacon hunting :)

A lot of places now do something called turkey ham, thinly sliced pieces of smoked turkey that taste similar to ham supposedly. I know that's probably not the same as fried bacon, but it's halal and therefore permissible in Islam.

As mentioned by others, Bahrain is a Muslim country. Yes, alcohol is easily available there whether rightly or wrongly, but bacon and any other derivative of a pig is really pushing the limit for most Muslims, hence you won't find that stuff easily.

It may not be the same in Bahrain any more, and it is many years since I was there, but all the hotels we have stayed at in the UAE have had a " pork station" at the breakfast buffet, serving real bacon, pork sausages etc.

it is clearly labeled in English and Arabic, and is located away from the main servery areas in order not to offend Muslims.

We have found "pork stations" in 5 Hiltons in the UAE and at JA resorts too.

I hope this helps.
