The Bagel Shop is the newest addition to Oldham Street, Manchester. If your a local, you will know that Oldham Street is becoming a hub for amazing food. This place is no exception!
Eat New York are best know as a street food truck, which you may have seen at many food festivals & events around the North West. The Bagel Shop is their new baby. Serving American style bagels, sandwiches & burgers, with their own twist, these guys have hit the nail on the head with The Bagel Shop. There is nowhere else in Manchester, that you will get bagels, as good as this!
I have been following the Eat New York food truck on Instagram for a while & often drooled over their amazing pastrami, salt beef & burgers. Now that they have finally opened a cafe/bar you can enjoy this amazing food whenever you like!
After it’s opening on December 1st, I knew I needed to visit! I finally popped in for brunch and tried out 3 of their dishes on the menu. The space is modern and industrial. The whole place is firmly rooted in Manchester, from the colours on the walls, the neon signs or the artwork provided by Manchester artist The Fresh Prints.
I tried the Salt Beef Bagel, A Reuben sandwich & the Crab Shack Bagel. ( I really couldn’t pick just one!) Not only does each dish come with amazing in house smoked & cured meats. Each one comes with it’s own homemade dressings & sauces which complement them perfectly.
The Reuben – Delicious & packed full of flavour. Easily the best pastrami I have ever tasted. The Quarter Pound size, is easily enough for one person!
Salt Beef Bagel – The salt beef is just as amazing as it sounds, but one of my favourite parts of this sandwich is the house mustard. This mustard is fiery & is the star of this dish (along side the beef, of course).
Crab Shack Bagel – I decided to try this Bagel as it was different and something I hadn’t come across before. I can safely say, this was my favourite of the three. It’s fresh, light and packed full of flavour. The crab was extremely fresh (& you actually get real chunks of white crab meat!) The add ins of avocado, bacon & chipotle Marie Rose sauce, make this Bagel probably the best sandwich I’ve had. Which is a bold statement coming from a northerner!
Since I started my blog just over a year ago, I have made it my goal to show the best that Manchester has to offer. Hand on my heart, this is easily some of the best food I’ve tried in all that time.
If you want some amazing, fresh and homemade food this weekend, then you have to get yourself to The Bagel Shop.
