The largest bagel in the world!

Well after being criticised by a native New Yorker on this blog for extolling the virtues of a toasted bagel I thought if better have myself one of New York's finest. DD and I found the first bagel shop on leaving the hotel and I ordered a sesame seeded bagel with the ubiquitous salmon and cream cheese. Well I ordered a bagel but I was handed a loaf! I can vouch for the fact that it doesn't come toasted and it does taste very nice but it's just so huge. I was able to make tiny inroads into it before I slipped it into my bag defeated. I didn't discover it again until the evening.

By then it was much flatter and I could have then eaten it much more easily but there really wasn't any room at the inn. At least I can say I've had a New York bagel now - though in all honesty I think the bagel had me!

I am so glad I did not order a bagel with 17kg's of smoked salmon!

I instead bought a camera strap. Or did I?
