Bagels in Bangkok

Published by at 2:11 pm under Food

As a New Yorker born and bred, I know just how seriously people can take their bagels. Not every roll with a hole counts. A bagel has got to have the right smell, it must be soft but not mushy, and the best bagels are so overflowing with dough that the hole is nowhere near a perfect circle. The newly opened BKK Bagel Bakery is the closest I’ve come to the real-deal this side of the Pacific.

Bagels made fresh daily

BKK Bagel Bakery seems to be the talk of the town these days, but unlike the other popular pastry joint down the street — Krispy Kreme — getting served here does not involve snaking lines and a four-hour wait. This bagel shop is busy but not packed and is a nice urban spot for a cup-of-joe in the morning. The bagels themselves hit the mark and come in a range of flavours for only 35 baht, and add an extra 30 baht to choose your favourite kind of cream cheese.

Fresh wholewheat bagels

Delicious sandwiches, also served on bagels, go from 150 to 225 baht and are hearty lunch options. Smoked salmon, fresh veggies, hummus and the stand-out Show Stopper with homemade roasted turkey, avocado spread, bacon, cheese and mustard.

A range of coffee and juices are also on offer, although inexplicably the menu is currently devoid of English teas.

BKK Bagel Bakery is located right off the Chid Lom BTS station on the side of the Maneeya Centre, right next door to the Kipling store. Open Mon-Fri from 08:30 until 18:30 and on Sat from 08:30 until 12:30 (only bagels on Saturdays, no sandwiches).

    Do they sell the Cream Cheese in Bigger sizes as well? what about other cheese?

    How are their bagels for Take away? do they last? can they be frozen?

    Hi Yuri
    The cream cheese for sale is in individual containers but it might be worth asking if you could special order something larger. In terms of other cheeses there is Swiss Cheese and Muenster on some of the sandwhiches…yum. In my experience bagels last for about 2 days before they start to get a little stale, but bagels are very good items to freeze! Hope this helps and happy eating.
