Montreal or Manhattan it ain’t, but Hong Kong has started to up its bagel game. Now you don’t have to look far for good lox and a thick, filling schmear. But which bagel bakery makes the best sandwich these days? Determined to find out once and for all, we put Hong Kong’s most popular bagel shops to the test.
The rules: the Time Out Hong Kong taste-testers ordered from Deliveroo, as every good office work does, and only went for bagel sandwiches listed as ‘popular’ on the app. For variety’s sake, we opted not to go for the crowd favourite – the lox sandwich – across the board. The only stipulation when it came to bagel choice was that it couldn’t be plain. Poppy seed, sesame seed, salt, everything, even – gasp! – cinnamon raisin were all fair game.
RECOMMENDED: Get baked at Hong Kong’s best local bakeries.
