“I got to hunt down the Brick Lane Bagel today” as i have said to myself one Sunday, when i went back to Public Beware Store just to exchange a cardigan. Shopping alone can sometime be good, no one hassle, get what you want and go……
Walking around Brick Lane, holding my dslr, looking at the GSP on my mobile… where is 159 Brick lane ?? ahhh took me some time before i figured out where the other part of Brick Lane is.. and finally reach the crowded and busy market, shocked and surprised as i never been to this end, this just reminds me a bit of Hong Kong market that i followed my mother to while I was still in Hong Kong…
As i walk down… saw two long queues from two different bagel store, are they battling against each other? kaka… if they do, that be even better for customers. As from what i learnt, price war = customer benefits. Nevertheless, i picked the one above, Beigel Bakery, as its what i was looking for in the first place… queue… queue.. queue.. i guess at this time, no matter whether you are londoner or tourist, you just can’t wait to bite into it!
Waited good 5 minutes, my turn… one salted beef bagel, please. with mustard? yes, please. okay… 3.50 out of pocket. First bite, wow.. holly, the bagel has good texture and moist, not those one that you can throw it out to your mate’s head and hurt them. They were pretty generous with their salted beef, i received 3 chunk of them, not thin slices but chunk… ahhh… 2nd bite with mustard, omg, its like wasabi in your mouth and then you realised mustard do actually balance the salted beef flavour, and can enhance your taste buds!
Queueing for this bagel is worth everything, after this trip i went googling how to make salted beef, which actually takes some time… and i shall never consider making salted beef, but i will for sure be giving more attempts on bagel, yum! what more i got to say?? make a visit asap.. even tourists know this place, so if you live in London…. no excuse not to go! = )
