New York City is a foodie's dream destination and for good reason. Whether it's rainbow bagels and smear or hot dogs from a food truck, you're always in for a treat, quite literally. So, now that I've relocated back to my favorite city, it's so much an issue but if you had asked me this mere months ago, I'd have a completely different story to tell.
Before re-locating back to the east coast, I spent a year living and working in San Francisco. Sure, SF does have a pretty epic food scene, but it doesn't compare to the comforts of home. I also have a sweet tooth, which cannolis in my North Beach neighborhood didn't curb. So, on a trip this past spring to New York, I decided to swing by The Bagel Store in Brooklyn before heading back west.
Once there, I bought one for myself, another for a friend back home and a third order for a fellow West Coaster who shares my affinity for bagels. For that last order, I used Grabr, which is a new platform that connects shoppers seeking unique goods (or yummy treats you can't get anywhere else) with travelers heading their way..aka, me! So, if you can't plan a trip to the Big Apple but still want a slice of the food scene, Grabr's a great resource. Plus, you get paid.
Ok, back to the bagels. Why are these so special? Well, for one thing, they're considered a piece of art just as much as an edible snack. It's true! Scot Rossillo, who is called the “World’s Premiere Bagel Artist” came up with the concept that is blowing up your Insta feed.
While Rainbow Bagels might look like they’re packed with sugar, that’s actually not the case. Bagels are made using natural ingredients and there are no chemicals or preservatives added at any point. A win-win!
