Absolute Bagels

$$$$

If we had to pick one singular bagel to reign supreme over all of its New York City carbohydrate kin, it’s the untoasted everything bagel with scallion cream cheese from Absolute Bagels on Broadway and West 108th Street. Tiny and round like a softball, each springy dough globe you’ll find here has a blistered bottom. The dough itself tastes malty and sweet, like it had a daydream years ago about being a dessert. But the real magic is how Absolute Bagels’ subtle sweetness is counteracted by the salty garlic everything seasoning that adheres to the exterior. Absolute Bagels also makes fantastic Thai iced tea (the place was founded by Sam Thongkrieng, who moved from Bangkok to NYC in the 80s and worked at Ess-A-Bagel for years). The straightforward sweetness of the tea adds some needed relief to the salty-garlicky, cream cheese-gushing experience.
