Brooklyn B Bagel Bakery @ SS15 Subang

December 2, 2013

Take a hefty bite of the Big Apple at Brooklyn B, possibly the Klang Valleys first hipster cafe that centers on bagels.

Brooklyn B replaces Subangs Cham Bagel Bakery; its now run a Malaysian team coached by Chams Gambian owner, who spent 16 years making bagels in New York City. This new outlet has been entirely refurbished, transforming it into a relatively trendy-looking hangout that might perform better among SS15s college crowd.

Brooklyn Bs bevy of bagels is freshly baked, supplying a distinctive chew thats densely solid without being distressingly strenuous.

Bagels are served all day long starting 10am, except on Mondays; begin with breakfast, when a warm bagel sandwich can be savored, heartily stuffed with scrambled eggs & veggies (RM8.30).

Lunch might be the classic bagel with lox & cream cheese, plus capers & spring onions (RM15.50); Brooklyn Bs salmon proves surprisingly luscious, signaling that the outlet is serious about stocking up on top-flight ingredients.

For dinner, when Brooklyn Bs speakers switch to the turbulent sounds of Florence and the Machine, consider the garlic-topped bagel filled with soft corned beef, Worcestershire sauce & black pepper (RM11.90).

Regular bagels range from savory ones flavored with onions, poppy seeds & sesame seeds ...

... to sweeter varieties tinged with blueberries or apple cinnamon (RM3.50 each, RM12 for four), perfect to have plain for a snack.

Brooklyn Bs cant-stop, wont-stop-eating addiction: Bagel chips, thinly sliced & baked till golden-brown, even crunchier than potato crisps.

Excellent with creamy aioli; very simple but purely enjoyable.

Speaking of pure enjoyment, Smooshie Juice, our favorite  fruit juice purists, are in the top three of an Alliance Bank competition that could enable them to secure funds to build a mini-factory. Fellow Smooshie fans can take the steps above by Dec. 8 to help make this dream come true.
