Do you like bagels??

Posted February 11th, 2009 in Food, Perth WA 10 Comments »


I wrote a post about bagels here, and I’ve tried bagels at the Trackside Bakery down by the Perth Train Station as Angie recommended me.  I loved the whole “bakery smell” 🙂  Freshly baked bread…  yum!  and bagels are really nice! but I wish there are more bagel shops in Perth.  

I’m starting to wonder… do people in Perth know what the bagel is??  I mean, of course some people should know, but is it like 20% of the population??  Not so many shops sell bagels, does it mean people here prefer soft & light bread?

Personally I love hard, crusty and difficult-to-tear-off type of bread.  I can get those hard crusty bread from my favorite bakery, but sadly they don’t sell bagels on regular bases 🙁

Do you like soft bread, or hard bread??

    Hi there, thanks for the mention. Some people do know what bagels are in Perth, some do. I can’t recall if I have mentioned this earlier, so please pardon my forgetful memory, but I have also posted about my recent-ish bagel hunt at 🙂

    Thanks for the link. I actually haven’t been to the Kosher Food Centre, but I really think I should try one of those plain bagels! Are they handmade??
    Bagels are kind of Jewish food… is there any other Jewish bakeries around Perth?

    My wife likes that hard European-style bread like you do.
    As for me, I like very soft bread!
    I love the Japanese パン屋さん 「Vie De France」. Do you know it?

    Hi Tokyo 5 🙂
    That’s the big reason why I miss Japan so much! So many kinds of food are available there 🙂
    I love Vie De France. Isn’t is a franchise from another country?? or is it Japanese?
    Japanese bread are awesome… I really miss them. I love Melon Pan (the one with hard crust!), Ogura Pan, and Takoyaki Pan!

    Takoyaki bread??
    Wow! Must be a 関西 thing! I’ve never seen that one.

    Vie De France started as an American company, but Yamazaki Bread Co bought them. So it’s Japanese now.

    I actually didn’t realize that Takoyaki bread was only available in Kansai area! You should try one if you have chance to go to Kansai 🙂
