No visit to Montreal could possibly be complete without eating at least one Montreal bagel. They are smaller and sweeter than their better-known New York cousins. Egg and honey in the dough, honey in the water they are boiled in, and a final bake in a wood-fired oven are what account for the difference. On a recent visit to Montreal, I stopped in at St-Viateur Bagel Shop (pictured) and had a sesame bagel (the default option in Montreal) fresh from the oven. It was still warm, and steam rose out of it as I bit into it on the chilly street. That fresh, it needed nothing on it - no butter, no cream cheese, no jam. Learn more about Montreal Bagels here.
