Bagels in Tokyo?
- Rachel M.
Thought I'd see if any of the Tokyo chowhounds had any recommendations for bagels that I hadn't tried yet. I have been a big fan of Little Tribeca, but it seems like when I go lately the selection is heavily weighted towards evil things like blueberry bagels. (I'm a big fan of salt, actually, but since those seem to be disappearing even back in the States, I usually go for everything).
The place in Nogizaka is a little fluffy for my liking, and Fox's don't quite do it, either. Any other suggestions?
I'm a big fan of Macou's Bagel Cafe. While they, too, get into the cutesy bagels (blueberry, pumpkin, garlic and salami), their plain and super-onion bagels are really to my liking. I've heard that there are a few branches, but the one I go to is on Yamate-dori (heading towards Osaki station), about 1/2 km. east of Meguro-dori. Looking on my map, I figure it is right at the border of Meguro-ku, and Shinagawa-ku.
All of their bagels run about Y120, and individual servings of cream cheese are Y100.
