Pocket Number 9: Beigel Bake, Brick Lane, London

25 pts ldn 288Beigel Bake is  the oldest beigel shop in London and an enduring legacy of the Jewish presence once in Spitalfields.

The bakery is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week and has it’s own Wikipedia page.

Upon arrival, early on Sunday afternoon I found the shop heaving with beigel hungry hordes; with a queue that ran out into the street.25 pts ldn 284

While standing in the queue I was able to snatch a moment with one of the furiously busy bakers 25 pts ldn 286




to explain about the project and was sent to visit Madame Tussauds (and see anybody there).25 pts ldn 289

Before leaving, I had a glistening and properly chewy beigel stuffed with mounds of moist salt beef plus a kick of English mustard.

For the montage I have the brown paper bag that my Bagel was served in.
