Aside from the rising condominiums and multinational companies, one sure thing that is booming is the competition for the best food chain at Mckinley Hill, Taguig. At least, it give us a lot of restaurants/diners to choose from, right? Call center agents, students from International schools and business professionals line up to buy in their favorite stress reliever: food!!!
My friend and I are searching for a pictorial spot for our fashion blog posts at Tuscany when we passed by a New York-ish store and spotted bagels and delish pastries.
A handsome guy in the store, maybe the owner or the Chef adds up to my curiosity to try the bagels (haha).
I used to have bagel and iced tea for snack at Country Style. I liked their bagel even if it is just plain bread but i love L.E.S Bagels for their creativity in mixing flavors with their cream cheese, it is different, in a good way 🙂
L.E.S (Lower East Side) Bagels opens up last August, we’ve been eyeing that store even before but thought that the food were expensive because of how the store looks like. When I’ve tried it, i was not disappointed especially with the generous amount of cream cheese in my bagel. Though i am not sure if i would be happy with a cold bagel. I know when we eat breads, specifically pandesal, we like it hot.
Garlic Bagel with Jalapeno Cheddar (P160)
How do you like your bagel, hot or cold?
L.E.S. Bagels have around 10 various sweet & savory
bagels which costs Php 40 each. You will probably love the garlic, cinnamon-raisin and the sesame seed bagel. If you’re adventurous enough, try these: Pumpernickel, Black Russian and Nigella Seed.
You also have more than a dozen types of cream cheese to choose from, their bestsellers are the bacon & cheddar, jalapeno cheddar and the sundried tomato, and hey, you can purchase by the tub, too.
Aside from bagels, you can also make your own sandwich. Sandwiches range from P200 – P400 and good for sharing.
Pastries like brownies and homemade oreos on display seduces the customers for sure. They also sell Hot English mustard which they recommend to try with knish, a type of bread stuffed with potato, meat, or cheese (nom nom).
We, employees at McKinley Hill are facing a lot of food temptations BUT we are still looking for food that can satisfy our cravings as well as our pocket needs. Will L.E.S Bagels survive at Mckinley Hill? Hopefully yes, let’s eat, wait and see.
