Setting up outside the Post Box Café on Wilbraham Road, Holey Bagels has been serving toasted bagels to the people of Chorlton for just over a month. They’ve already established a reputation of serving quality late night eats for hungry revellers and foodies alike. You’d struggle to miss the distinctive red van, and as I live locally I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try them out.
We arrived just after they had started serving on Saturday evening. With the sun coming out after a rainy Manchester day, business was brisk. We both decided to go for the Cyprus Hill Bagel – Fried Halloumi cheese, cucumber, peppers, rocket & Chill Jam. Service was quick and served by the welcoming owners, who really added to the street food vibe. Each bagel is priced at a very reasonable £4.50.
The taste did not disappoint. Generous fillings, great fresh taste and excellent presentation all combine to create probably the best bagel I’ve ever had. The chilli jam was the real star of the show – adding an extra kick to the flavours without overpowering the halloumi.
It wasn’t long before the cat wanted a bite 🙂
Holey Bagels was a delight and really adds something to the Manchester vegetarian food scene. They are open for business from 8pm till 1am late Friday and Saturday. From this Sunday onwards you can find them at the Beech Inn on Beech Road.
Skip the late night veggie burgers this weekend and give Holey Bagels a try.
