LES BAGELS | Diet Tomorrow

Being as active as I am, I find myself feeling peckish at odd times of the day (case in point, right after merienda) Being in Mckinley Hill, I remembered reading that there was this great New York inspired bagel place headed by New York Native Chef Cuit Kaufman (Borough, Nolita). So when I spotted Tuscany from the road, I knew I had to make a quick detour. photo lesbagels-1130081_zps8c50a1b4.jpg

Immediately upon entering, I noticed that the sweets were front and center. At arm’s reach even!

Figured dessert would mess up my macros, I decided a bagel would be a better bet. Until I saw the cream cheese selection, oh well, minsan minsan lang naman. I might as well do a food review!

What interested me right away were these two, the garlic and chive and bacon and cheddar.

then these… sundried tomato and basil sounds like a good one. Lox is a crowd favorite, Nova-style cold smoked salmon and cream cheese!

Of course the the bagels, which were numerous in variety. Plain, wheat, sesame seeds, you name it! Bagel care instructions also included.

The cream cheese offerings also listed, lest you forget.

I finally decided on the The L.E.S. Addiction which is a pumpernickle bagel with chived cream cheese, smoked salmon, tomatoes, onions and capers! The thing was massive. Like I was trying to overdose on cream cheese and carbs. Managed to finish all of it though!
