Montreal bagels in NYC

2 Montrealers Opened A Bagel Shop Yesterday In New York City And Sold Out Instantly

Yup, we love our Montreal style bagels and we're proud of 'em.

Located just a block away from the best falafel in NYC! (the woman who was on throwdown and chopped).

I am spending more and more time in that neighborhood when I am in NYC and will definitely check it out.

I've never heard of a Montreal bagel. Is that what they serve Montreal smoked meat on?

From Bagel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The two most prominent styles of traditional bagel in North America are the Montreal-style bagel and the New York-style bagel. The Montreal bagel contains malt and sugar with no salt; it is boiled in honey-sweetened water before baking in a wood-fired oven; and it is predominantly either of the poppy "black" or sesame "white" seeds variety. The New York bagel contains salt and malt and is boiled in water prior to baking in a standard oven. The resulting New York bagel is puffy with a moist crust, while the Montreal bagel is smaller (though with a larger hole), crunchier, and sweeter.[21

Here's a pic of one of Montreal's bagel "factories". The bagels are rolled into rings by hand.



And here's one of their main competition.

Heck no! Montreal smoked meat is served on rye bread. It is also sometimes offered as a pizza topping or poutine topping.

When I make bagels, they have salt and are boiled in water with sugar added. They are not sweet at all.

Yeah, I've never noticed Montreal bagels being sweet and I'm really picky. If they were at all sweet, I wouldn't eat them with lox and cream cheese. They are chewy.
