A bagel is a type of dense bread that is first boiled and then fried. The bagel is staple for the city of New York, making it one of the most consumed food in the city. And why not? The flavours on this single piece of bread are unique and delicious. It’s not your average piece of carb.
Imagine the beautiful glossy looking crusty circle that’s hard on edges but extremely soft in the middle. Yes, the New York bagel is calling you, catch the closest bus/train and experience it for yourself!
We had to circle NYC to compile a list of some of the best bagels you can find in the city:
This awesome little bagel store has switched locations a few times since it first opened in the 70’s. Their hand-rolled bagels are quite large, amazing and often do not even need toasting. The original bagel is their best seller but if you’re feeling adventurous, ask for the ones with smoked fish or eggs to make a perfect breakfast meal out of your visit here.
2. Absolute Bagels
Absolute Bagels is a quaint little bakery that’ll literally take you through the process of how their perfect pillowy bagels are made with their steaming pots and huge open-mouthed ovens. What’s better than picking up the freshest of food that is cooked right in front of you? Be sure to ask for the one with cream cheese, it will be loaded with just that I promise!
3. The Bagel Hole
The Bagel Hole is true to its name and is literally a hole in a wall. There is no need to toast these dense, chewy and delicious bagels as they are served straight, fresh and warm from the oven. These bagels are more traditional New York-style. So if you’re looking for the classic example of bagels back in the day, The Bagel Hole is the best place for you to try it.
