Australian Man's Reaction to Trying His First New York City Bagel Is Everything We Expected

If you’re a New Yorker, you already know your city has some of the best food in the world. That’s because people from around the globe live in this thriving Metropolis. You can eat in restaurants that serve Chinese, Indian, or Ethiopian food in one day. Plus, new eateries are opening every month. You can’t go wrong with finding a place to eat in NYC. If this is your first time in NYC, you’ll want to taste all the foods connected to the city. One such food is the bagel.

In a TikTok video content, creator @thejessefreeman shared his reaction to tasting a New York City bagel for the first time. But he didn’t get just any bagel. He ordered one with cream cheese and salmon. Talk about a party for your mouth. His reaction was genuine. We wouldn't expect anything less.

We wanted to take a bite out of that sandwich as soon as it was unwrapped. We love our bagels, and he chose an excellent option. Let’s see how the TikTok community reacted to it. User @LauLu1225 wrote, “So, good, right? Red onion and everything. My high school job was at a bagel store. Met my hubby there.” @JoAnne Jurcic said, “NYC gets a lot of things wrong. But bagels and breakfast sandwiches are not one of them.” @bt replied, “Solid choice. Zucker’s is in my top three. Enjoy our city!” @Rebecca Baer remarked, “Drooling. Nothing better than a good bagel with lox and the works.”

No one does a bagel like New York City. It’s the best place to experience one for the first time. Even if you’ve eaten bagels your entire life, it won’t be the same as an NYC bagel.
