korean food / seoul / 5 best places to eat bagels for a light yet hearty meal – 2411

“Bagel” is a type of bread that has been used by Jews for breakfast since about 2,000 years ago. It became widely known around the world at the same time that Jews immigrated to the eastern part of the United States in the 19th century. Bagels are made with only four ingredients of flour, yeast, water, and salt without synthetic additives, and are characterized by being easy to digest without bloating even after eating them all. Because of its light flavor and chewy texture, you can eat it with cream cheese or enjoy it as a sandwich. From bagel restaurants that add a subtle flavor with oak firewood to bagels served in an authentic New York style! Here are 5 of the best bagel restaurants for a light yet hearty meal.

1. 'Elephant Bagel' in Yangpyeong-dong, Seoul, where oak firewood adds flavor

“Elephant Bagel” bakes Montréal-style bagels in an oak wood-burning oven. The signature dish is “butter salt,” which is a browny-baked plain bagel filled with French gourmet butter and pearl salt.
