As we are continuing our SUMMER BLOW-OUT WEEK (Hot!! Humid!!! You get the idea…), we have another LBI mini-review: the Bagel Shack.
I love bread. And bread in bagel-form is one of my favorites (right under pizza-form). Finding a good bagel is tough. Some argue that New York has the best bagels around. Something about the water….I dunno. I’m not here to dispute that claim. I’m just here to say that the bagels at the Shack are daaaaaaamn good.
A few words about them:
Fluffy insides….crispy crust (with those little bubbles that show they’ve been boiled)….puffy shape….
I believe the Shack opens around 6am. And that is when the line starts to form. But it’s also when the bagels are served hot. And you can smell the bread baking….and if you can wait till you get home to eat them, you have more self control than I do.
In addition to their regular bagel flavors, they have something called THE FRENCH TOAST BAGEL (I would put neon flashing lights around that name, but wordpress doesn’t allow me to). Get this bagel.
I ate my whole wheat version with a plum, fig & lavender jam that I made myself. Cuz I’m crazy like that. Who wants the recipe? C’mon, I know you do….
