I freaking LOVE bagels. I first came to Montreal when I was 17 on a work exchange for 6 weeks at a daycare where I basically just played with 18mo old babies for 8 hours a day and it was amazing. During the rest of the days and weekends, I zipped all around Montreal with our cohort of fellow teens on work exchange from all over Canada and it was one of the best summers I could have ever asked for. 🖤 Those six weeks were full of adventure, summer love, and most of all FOOD. I remember trying Montreal bagels for the first time and having my mind blown at how dense and chewy they were, compared to the giant ones I was used to at home. Montreal bagels have this other kind of pillowy chew that is unlike any other. 🖤 Typically they are either cooked briefly in a honey bath and/or coated with an egg wash, so the famous @stviateurbagel and @fairmountbagel aren't traditionally vegan, but Fairmont said they would do a vegan batch with 24 hrs notice when I was researching a couple weeks ago. I reached out about 36 hrs before I was going to stop by for bagels, but they didn't answer so no Fairmount bagels for me haha. 🖤 However, the champions at Bagel Beaubien were so nice and let me take pictures of their bagels AND have a bunch of vegan options. I left with a bag of warm, fragrant sesame bagels that I ate with the FANTASTIC @lesojami garlic & herb fermented soy cream cheese, only to come back just before we left Montreal so I could get another half dozen sesame and some cinnamon raisin ones for Eddie. 🖤 They are simply so delicious and I'm so thankful that Beaubien has vegan bagels without any hoops to jump though! 🖤 #thevietvegan #bagelbeaubien #montrealvegan #bestofvegan #veganfoodshare
