I think I have just found my new favourite place to eat in Bristol.
On Saturday me and Tom were taking a stroll through town from the fountains up towards St Nicks when we saw a sign which stopped us in our tracks. I’d heard of Bagel Boy before, but always assumed they were up on Park St. Well, they’ve moved!
The new shop is tucked away on St Nicholas Street, the road opposite Photographique’s new premises (or if you are approaching from the other direction, it’s the same road as Vodka Rev). It’s a very clean and tidy, welcoming looking shop, with rustic wooden tables inside and the most awesome sign hanging in the window. Hot salt beef, anyone?
The menu is amazing. Not only do they offer up a wide selection of bagels, all of which sound incredible, but they do bagel burgers, and a huge selection of awesome sides (chicken fingers?! As a side??!!). I went for the Rueben bagel – pastrami, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, gherkins and leaves. I can’t remember what Tom ate, probably because it wasn’t as big or as tasty as mine.
It was quite hard to hold a bagel in one hand and a camera in the other. It was that big. I ate the whole thing and it was delicious. I didn’t need dinner later in the day. That is some serious sustenance.
This photo even got a shout out on Lauren Laverne’s 6 Music show on Monday, which was very cool (she also commented on how nice my nails were, to which I let out a little fan girl squeal – me and Laverne are totally best buds now).
They even had some pretty sweet looking T Shirts for sale, which I will most definitely have to own when I’m next in there. They had mysteriously disappeared when I was in there earlier.
YES THAT’S RIGHT.
We were so impressed I met Tom after work in town this evening and we went and had another! This time I went for a veggie option (at a very reasonable £3.50) – halloumi and roasted peppers, with mayo and leaves.
And yes, it was delicious.
