BKK Bagel Bakery, tried and tasted (2)

4 Mar

So, continued from my previous post,  without further adieu let the tasting begin!  There are 5 bagel sandwich menus on the board, but….unfortunately the smoked salmon is out today,  I’ll have to come back to taste the smoked salmon bagel next week.

*By the way, this is the honest testing as the bagels are not paid for, although Eric and Tri were sharing the bagels with me.*

Tasting No. 1 ) The Show stopper(225 baht) : Turkey, Harvati cheese, bacon,  lightly brushed avocado spread (More Plssss) and whole grain mustard  served on a plain bagel

The Show Stopper

Verdict :  Loved the whole lot! I was surprised from the very first bite, The fillings are generously stuffed  (hence the price of THB 225) and you can taste everything in one bite. The only downside was that I couldn’t find the avocado spread until I dissected the sandwich.  It would be nicer to have thicker avocado smear on my turkey sandwich though.

Tasting No.2) Fin or Feather(175THB) : Homemade Tuna or Chicken Salad  lettuce, tomato, red onions, served on a whole white bagel,

Fin or Feather? I went for the fin

Verdict :  The fin was good but not great  I’d like more mayo and salt in my tuna salad. But again, everyone have their own preferences of their tuna salad sandwiches.

Tasting No.3) The Verrazano(225 THB) : Home made spiced roast beef, whole grain mustard, swiss cheese, lettuce, served on plain bagel

The Verrazano

Verdict :  I’ve been looking for real deli roast beef sandwiches for so long.. and this one is the answer to my prayer.  All I can say is “Y-u-m-m-y!”

Tasting No. 4) The Veggie Monger (150 THB) : Hummus, alfafa sprouts, tomato, carrots, avocado spread, red onion, served on poppy bagel

The Veggie Monger

Verdict : As much as I love the humus, it’s a bit strong for me, but for the vegetarians out there?  Go for it!

Apart from the coffee, bagels and bagel sandwiches,  Bkk Bagel also serves coleslaw and pasta salad.  I ordered a serve of  coleslaw (45 THB) and I was not disappointed. The mix of the ingredient are perfect, simple, fresh, tangy and crispy.

BKK Bagel Bakery is my new favorite place, with its location conveniently situated by the Chidlom BTS station and downstairs from many of the foreign media bureaus I think the future of the shop is very bright.

Now only if I can convince my mother to move from her usual place to here……..that will be my plan for the next few weeks.
