Whoever this Mr. Bagel is I hope he’s single.
Oh wait I’m married.
I’m not a religious person but I think I came pretty close to God when I ate at Mister Bagel. First, we could not find the place for some reason. We had breakfast here our last morning in Portland, and had walked by several times. However, when it came to actually finding Mister Bagel, he was a man of mystery (mostly because we plugged “Mr.” Bagel into the gps). At this point, to my husband’s delight, I was pretty hangry but we kept searching and found it. I’m so glad we did.
As a vegan, I figured I’d probably be stuck ordering a bagel just plain (no worries I never met a carb I didn’t like) but to my delight there were TONS of vegan options. They had hummus as well as several different tofu spreads. I had not idea what to expect with the tofu spread but I order a super bagel (which was pretty much an everything bagel) with veggie spread and the hubby ordered a salt bagel with olive spread.
First of all, both sides of the bagel are the top part. How do they do that??? Is it like the Seinfeld episode with the muffin tops and there’s a plethora of bagel bottoms somewhere or are these mutated bagels? Whatever is going on there, it was awesome.
Second of all, the tofu spread was amazing. I can’t believe it was made from tofu. The texture was so similar to whipped cream cheese. I plan on attempting to recreate this at home.
This was one of my favorite things we ate in Portland. Seriously.
