Bagels have had a bit of a renaissance lately; and I for one, am all for it. New deli-style diners are popping up in and around Sydney, even some of the pop-up store variety (yes, I'm talking about you Brooklyn Boy Bagels!) One particular bagel joint I was excited to try was Lox Stock and Barrel in Bondi.
Homemade Brisket Pastrami - Russian Coleslaw, Pickles on Rye $13
What would a place labelled as Deli Diner be without brisket? I'm not a huge sandwich fan but I seriously loved the homemade brisket pastrami. Definitely a filling lunch item, the flavoursome brisket teamed with the creamy and crunchy coleslaw was heaven in my mouth. Topped with tangy pickles, I couldn't have asked for a better sandwich.
Smoked Lox Bagel - Onion, Caper, Rocket and Cream Cheese $12
For me, the ultimate bagel will always be salmon. You have a choice of plain, sesame, poppy, seeds and spices, onion or wholemeal white the toppings are relatively conservative but that's how I enjoy my bagel so there are no complaints.
