Like bagels? Like burgers? The London Bagel Company have merged the two concepts together to create a bagel burger and I got to try it out last week. The result is a real mouthful of yum – meat lovers will like the ‘Fat Bastard’ – 100% British grain fed beef patty, home made salt beef, fried egg, American cheese and salad.
Lighter options include the ‘Luca’ with halloumi, rocket and apple chilli jam, or the ‘Saimh’ with falafel topped with grilled cheese and a yoghurt, apple & mint dressing.
Beef is sourced from Smithfield market, bagels come from Brick Lane’s Beigel Bake, and the juices and relishes are all home made.
Owner Hamish Gill has said he plans to make the most indulgent vegan burger of all time so watch this space.
The London Bagel Co. truck can be found in Old Spitalfields Market, daily 11.30 – 16.30.
