Tokyo's Bagel Standard

American-style bagels in Nakameguro

 By Mandy Bartok   Jan 9, 2016

Bakeries are a dime a dozen in Tokyo but it's difficult to find one that turns out a good bagel. Bagel Standard, a tiny shop located a short walk east of Nakameguro station on Yamate-dori, fills the void quite nicely with bagels baked fresh daily in a variety of flavors - think blueberry, onion, poppy seed and everything. You can top your bagel with one of the flavored cream cheese options or make it into a full sandwich. My smoked salmon and regular cream cheese order came with a hints of capers and was perfect on a doughy onion bagel. Take-away only, though there is a bench outside the shop if you need to eat on the run.

Onion bagels were always my favorite and I have to admit, this was pretty darn good. :)
