JOJA Bagels @ Bishop Street, Georgetown, Penang.

Who does not love a good Bagel? Crusty, chewy, filling and versatile, JOJA Bagels is one of the few Bagel specialists in town that offers a full-fledged Bagel menu. The purists get to enjoy the all time classics while the more adventurous could go for those with creative combos. Expect longer wait at this new Bagel joint though; we waited ours for more than 30 minutes. Good quality of food, everything was fresh but be prepared to sign up for a messy dining experience. There will be no cutleries or utensils, just bare hands for the sandwiches. JOJA Bagels is located at Bishop Street, few shops away from BSN Bank on the same street. 

Lox In A Bagel (Rm 28)

Smokin' Beast (Rm 25)

We had both the Classic and their special Bagelwich. The Lox In A Bagel is a classic Bagel combo with Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese. They were very generous with the Smoked Salmon as well as Cream Cheese, the choice of Smoked Salmon was very good. It was not overly salty and worked well with the creamy, thick Cream Cheese. Smokin' Beast was equally great, it was almost something like a Beef Burger. There was a slab of beautifully cooked Beef patty, sandwiching a Sunny Side Up and some stir-fried Onions. There was a hint of sweetness, probably some Honey Mustard sauce. We love the combination and thought it was very delicious. Save for the messy dining experience and long waiting time, we thought the food was great.
