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.

  1. So, you tried some great bagels in Ottawa. But don’t you ever, ever try to say they are better than Montreal bagels…..
    That is all!

  2. of course not! there is a special place in my heart for eating bagels right out of the paper bag en route to your place, where we will then prepare bagels and lox!
