It took a while, but bagels can now be considered the IN food in Singapore.
The OG shop of Two Men Bagel House continue to enjoy popularity, while other new entrants of B for Bagel, Beigelhaus++, Keen’s Bagelry, and Fraser Street Brothers are fast gaining traction.
There is also the Wooly’s Bagels which can be found in the ever-popular Rangoon Road at Farrer Park, sharing space with Korean sando shop Egg Stop.
The Muslim-owned bagel joint does not box itself in to any particular style, offering the classics such as Bagel & Lox ($14.90), Pastramania ($14.50), Double Chicken Frizzle ($13.90), Chic Teriyaki ($12.80), to a localised take of Otah Kau ($12.60),
At the moment, the eatery is not quite Halal-certified. The ingredients are Halal, at the very least.
The bagel journey begins with a choice between plain, cheese, and sesame. They are lightly toasted before it is assembled.
The good bet they recommend is the Double Chicken Frizzle ($13.90), made with the quintessential chicken that belongs in every sandwich.
You are looking at crispy fried chicken thighs encapsulating melted cheese and silky scrambled eggs. Just a little spicy, they say.
Just one more savoury bagel – a bagel eatery is incomplete without the classic Bagel & Lox ($14.90), made with smoked salmon and house-made garlic herb cream cheese.
I was enticed by the Otah Kau ($12.60), which uses a meaty mackerel otah with scrambled eggs. The otah are sliced rather thick to give you the full texture and sauced-up experience.
The kicker here is the mild spicy sauce, which, in their own taunting words, “if you can take your mom shouting at you in public, you can definitely take our sauce”.
Quite a satisfying bite.
It might be unexpected, but the call to social media game at Wooly’s is the Bagel Smore’s ($7.90). One look at the cut open halves and you will know why.
With the marshmallow roasted and gooey, the marshmallow pull is almost heavenly. Paired with thick and nutty Nutella, it can be sweet can satisfy the sweet tooth.
