I’ve been addicted to BB’s bagels lately. My brother regularly sends or brings me H&H Bagels from New York but I’ve found a close substitute here in the ‘burbs. These are boiled bagels, made from scratch daily. They are chewy, dense, and yeasty, with a tiny hint of sour, and a tad bit sweet. Perfection.
But aside from their famous bagels, they serve breakfast and lunch daily until 2pm. Everything is made in house and almost everything is made from scratch. So which one isn’t? The Taylor ham. I love this. It’s a pork roll from New Jersey. Kinda like a bologna. Here, they slice them thin and fry them lightly. I like that it’s not salty at all. Good for breakfast.
You’ve got to visit BB’s. Everyone that comes in is like family. Incidentally, a couple of weeks ago, I discovered Essex bagels which is closer to my house. Rumor has it that they get their dough from BB’s. Well, not exactly. According to Eddie (owner of BB’s), they do roll the dough for Essex but the recipe is slightly different. I agree. BB’s is chewier. Essex is a little on the bland side. BB’s rules.
