This was the first New York bagel chain to open a branch in Seoul and the first Pick A Bagel to open in Asia. While this location doesn’t offer as many options as the original chain, they can actually lay claim to being the only bagel shop in Korea that has dough made with New York water. Using the original Pick A Bagel recipe, the bagels are parbaked in the States, shipped over and brought to the Apgujeong location where they’re heated fresh. Served to you by native New Yorker and bagel expert, Abe Ryu, a range of classic bagel flavors are on the menu. While Pick A Bagel scores for their densely packed interior, our favorite point had to be the cream cheese. Perfectly creamy whilst remaining structured and light, each different flavor we tried had its own unique character and we’re definitely going back for the sundried tomato cream cheese. Be on the lookout for their pop-up in the Gyeongridan area! We have a (good) feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of Pick A Bagel in the near future.
