i'm happy to announce that i've found authentic, chewy bagels in portland! it only took two years of living here to hunt down a bagel that would satisfy me like the ones from new york. when i woke up on sunday morning, hungover, i knew the only thing that could make me feel better was my ultimate comfort food: a bagel with lox.
we went to
bowery bagels, where i ordered the multigrain bagel with caper and red
onion shmear (love it), tomato and cured salmon. i ate it far too
quickly, and then proceeded to order a second one immediately after. it was that good.
