Top 5 reviews of Brick Lane Beigel Bake
at any of time of the day because they are open 24/7. We came here after a night of heavy drinking, but I would still give this 5/5 if I came here sober.
Imagine Katz on a bagel. GENIUS!
The meat is not AS tender or thin (it's not even pastrami, but just go with me here), but still equally delicious and it goes GREAT with a bagel. I think I actually prefer it with a bagel??... more

As for the staff, they really have a "you're wasting my time"... more
I'm seeing so much comparison to NY bagels, but take it from a Native New Yorker: go for the salt beef bagel in London.
What people are describing from NY is either corned beef or pastrami on a sandwich--because we don't even put those in our bagels! There's a huge difference in eating corned beef in a bagel and in between loaves of bread. The American version comes in smoked or boiled and... more
