If you are looking for something beyond what factory-made frozen bagels has to offer, look no further. We’re compiled a list of bagel specialists which will satisfy your longing for the these warm, chewy, gluten-laden golden “halo” we call the bagel.

Check out these 5 places for bagels in Singapore, in no particular order, and where you can find them!

 

Two Men Bagel House, Tanjong Pagar
Considerably the most popular place in Singapore for freshly baked bagels and photogenic “bagelwiches” that are generously stacked with a wide variety of fillings. Two Men’s bagels are all hand-rolled, cold-retarded for 12 hours so the dough rises slowly, then boiled in honey water (Montreal-style) before baking, making them firm, crispy, spongy and chewy. Check out the hearty Salted ($14), filled with tender twice smoked and house-brined beef brisket, Emmental cheese, gherkins and mustard, or the satisfying Rodeo ($14), of tender roasted beef slices, caramelized onions, sweet relish, arugula leaves and mustard. For something simple, opt for the classic toasted bagel ($2.50), available in nine different flavours such as Onion, Garlic, Cheddar or Cinnamon & Raisin to name a few, followed with an interesting assortment of toppings (also known as “schmears”) which includes Cream Cheese, Salmon & Dill, Smashed avocado & Feta, and even PBJ.

Schmear specializes in bagels which are made in-house and in the featured picture is The New Yorker ($8++) consisting of two fried eggs, melted cheddar cheese and optional but recommended crispy bacon (+$3), stuffed between a bagel of your choice, in this case, the crusty garlic flavour (out of six different flavours). Schmear’s freshly baked hand-rolled New York-style bagels are soft, dense and chewy, with a shiny exterior and crispy bottom, and they’re are so good that you might want to take a dozen ($30) away with you.
