I spent this week in Ottawa, taking pictures of old documents, playing Dr. Mario, and eating bagels. Really, that’s almost all of it. Most of the bagels I ate were particularly unnoteworthy, if such a thing is possible, except for Kettleman’s. Kettleman’s is a pretty awesome bagel place in Ottawa that’s open 24 hours and makes about one gagillion bagels a day. (fact!) Kettleman’s bagels are, in fact, so delicious that even though I had eaten a mediocre bagel every day for lunch the whole week, I was excited to have one for dinner, and even considered going for breakfast, too.
I went with the Reuben, with swiss cheese, smoked meat, sauerkraut and sweet mustard, and it was a serious improvement on the standard toasted bagel from the archives that I had been subsisting on for the past few days. Also: I need to get a jar of pickles. Pickles really make a sandwich a meal.
