If you can't help but order bacon or pork belly every time you see it on the menu at a restaurant, this foodie tour might just be made for you. Secret City Tours is hosting a four-hour bacon tour on a bus throughout L.A. on May 17.

The 40 folks who participate in the event, which takes off at 10 a.m. at the Universal City Red Line station, will get to experience the salty and fatty goodness of all-things bacon for $60 a person, according to the L.A. Times. John Bwarie and his wife Laurie Bwarie, who run the monthly food tours and put on a bakery one in April, will be taking patrons to five to seven restaurants. Although they're keeping the names of the spots a secret, the riders will get a chance to meet some of the chefs at the stops and also try special items that aren't normally on the menus. However, John Bwarie gave a little hint of what could potentially be in store from previous tours—maybe bacon-laced alcoholic shots to ice cream.
