I have found my spirit food shop.
How many different bagels can there be? How many different toppings? How many different schmears? The answer? A lot. Like a freakin’ load.
I went for the Dad’s Army (jalapeño cream cheese with salami and a roast capsicum relish) on a jalapeño bagel. For $8. Yep. Eight dollars.
It was like a party in my mouth. I was actually sad when I finished it and I was even sadder when I got home and realised that I hadn’t got any takeaway. Rookie error.
This store has just added a roasted capsicum bagel that was, unfortunately, and not surprisingly, sold out by the time I got there at 11.45am.
I didn’t realise this was a chain until I was walking through the city and stumbled upon another store. At first, I was a little disappointed but then I was filled with happiness because I have more opportunities to bagel up.
I’m pretty excited to work my way through their filling and bagel combinations. The opportunities are (almost) endless.
