So, what’s the secret? These bagels use a recipe handed down to owner Tian Tao by a 78-year-old Jewish baker, who’d been making bagels his whole life, survived the Holocaust and spoke only Yiddish, teaching Tao through a combination of pointing and Google Translate.
Secret Bagel offers a few classic options alongside whackier flavours – sesame or sea salt bagels can be paired with smoked salmon or roast beef. Alternatively, live a little with an Oreo or chocolate-flavoured bagel. And yes, for all the trendy kids out there, they do have rainbow bagels.
