The West Coast can brag about their burritos all they want but they have still failed to master the elusive New York bagel. Blame the Jewish Deli ratio, or the aversion to carbs, but this city runs on them. They have all the qualifications of the perfect broke-ass breakfast. They’re cheap, filling, and there’s never a lack of variety. While a bacon, egg and cheese bagel has been the hungover meal of choice since the dawn of time, there is a new kid in town, which I discovered in my own backyard. And it is the bacon, egg and cheese “flavored” bagel. I can imagine what you’re picturing right now. Maybe something like this…
Let me assure you, this is no hot pocket impostor. Dreamed up by the pastry geniuses over at The Bagel Store in Williamsburg. Think of it as an egg bagel but with delicious bacon and cheese folded into the dough until it becomes a swirl of baked ecstasy. If you really want to press your luck or just gross out your eating partner. Then you could get the bacon, egg and cheese flavored bagel with bacon, egg, and cheese on TOP of it. I hope you don’t plan on doing anything that day because whatever it is you had planned, you can fucking forget it. While I don’t recommend this as a daily meal, it is hugely satisfying and surprisingly not greasy at all. You might want to order ahead because there’s always a crowd at this place and don’t bring anyone along that’s indecisive because they have more flavors of cream cheese than Kirstie Alley could bathe in. Plus how could you avoid their convincing ad campaign, “You’ll Love Our Schmear”?
