Bagel with Cream Cheese & Lox at Ess-a-Bagel – NYC
Usually when I’m craving bagels near my house, it’s always a dilemma. Ess-A-Bagel or David’s Bagels? Well yesterday, the decision was made for me since David’s was closed. (Not permanently, they’re moving to a new location between 15th and 16th Street. As of yesterday, construction was still in the works.) At Ess-a-Bagel, I got my usual pumpernickel bagel with cream cheese and lox ($10.75). The huge bagels at Ess-a-Bagel are sometimes a tad bready, but yesterday my pumpernickel was perfect: crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside. The BF’s everything bagel ($1), on the other hand, was shaped like a ball. Still, when a bagel is still warm, it’s hard to complain. I gobbled up my bagel with some tomatoes, onions, and capers on the side. David did likewise. It was a good morning.
