I ate two sandwichs over the holiday weekend and was so disappointed. I asked for a lox recommendation of a less salty salmon for a bagel cream cheese and lox sandwich with tomato and onion., everything bagel. The story falls short here because dispite three attempts in asking the name of the nova he suggested; I couldn't understand.
However, whatever it was the salmon was just ok. A little different which was fun but nothing to rave about. The real problem was the rest of the sandwich. The bagels are so chewy and firm that nothing other then a slice of meat, would shoot out the back upon first bite. It can't be eaten as a sandwich, which to me is huge. The constant mess of restuffing the onion and cream cheese from the back of the bagel and back of your hand. The tomato was aweful for anytime of the year. The onion was random chunks with filmy skin.
The second sandwich was chopped liver on sesame. Image that explosion.
I know a knife and fork would solve most of this, but I and maybe the other folks huddled over the benches outside like the eat a sandwich like a sandwich.
Perhaps I miss the fun?
