Beigel Bake

Beigel Bake©
This institution is a favourite among party animals and cab drivers alike. Since 1976, the oldest deli in town fills Brick Lane 24-hour with an endless line of starvers, craving for soft and cheap beigels. Baked in the Jewish tradition, they’re filled to order with: tender just-carved salt beef with mustard and juicy pickles, salmon and cream cheese, chopped herring… More than 7,000 beigels find their way out of their kitchen everyday!

To be enjoyed at the tiny counter or straight in the street. Insatiable appetites will fall back on apple strudel to seal the deal. For home DIY, buy a batch of bagels straight out of the oven.
