So I wrote a lengthy review only for my fat sausage finger to press back and loose the hole bloody thing.
Round 2 *ding ding ding ding* OK firstly, this place is DEFINITELY A MUST! I would've given it 5 starts but unfortunately my bagel was a tad burnt. And by burnt, to me I think a bagel should be a nice shade of golden brown. Mine on the other hand was a very very dark shade of brown....more
Bomb dot com! Better than Katz in Nyc. Yup I went there. 3 gbp for this baby. Uh yes. warm salted beef on a fresh bagel with juice dripping and making my lips oily. Wouldn't have it any other way.more
I think this is better suited to late night eats. We came by on a hungover afternoon looking for a salty, beefy, cure. The line wasn't too long at 2pm, and the brusque ladies kept the queue moving quickly so we didn't have to wait long.
The salt beef (basically corned beef) bagel with gherkin and mustard was good, but I learned the hard way that it was not the happy, yellow mustard it...more
Not only is this place open 24h, 7 days a week, 365 a year (a rarity in this country as I'm sure you'll agree), but if you don't have the cash to splurge on salt beef, get the bacon instead - for about £2.20 you'll have a very generous helping of rashers of bacon in between your bagel halves. Add cheese & ketchup if feeling indulgent.
I slightly prefer this place to the one next door.
One thing in the beginning: if you're used to American bagels, it's hard to compare it to this one.
I was walking on brick lane and asked a lady where to find a good bagel. She told me to go to the store with the big white sign and repeated like five times that it's definitely the best place.
I chose a simple cream cheese bagel and a coke and was surprised about the cheap prices.
