Bagels in the Land of Danes

Posted by on July 18 2011 in Breakfast, Food Travel, Restaurants

In the tiny country of Denmark, best known for its abundance of slim dark bread, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw signs for bagels. During my four days in Copenhagen I ate plenty of browned rye bread—on its on, with butter, with garlic aioli, with smoked herring, with strong, old cheese—so please don’t judge me for wanting to see how the Danes produce this New Jersey staple.

We ordered The Bagel Co‘s version of an everything bagel, studded with pumpkin, sunflower, caraway and sesame seeds. While the crust was softer than I’d like, the crunch of the large seeds helped add that bit of texture that I crave with a bagel. But what I absolutely adored was the schmear: pesto cream cheese, lightly herbed and plenty creamy.

    Thanks for the great post, when you come out to California stop by Los Bagels, we have a great pesto spread as well. Cheers, Bill

    I’m Swedish and have a HUGE problem with finding decent bagels around here, I mean Goodness, how hard can it be?? Fortunately, I go to the US pretty often, and eat my fair share of bagels when I can. Maybe I can go to Denmark too now, cause that looks pretty tasty =D
