For better or for worse, this Queens bagel shop that’s been open since 1961 will stand out in your mind years after you go there. That’s because these bagels have a completely different texture and mouthfeel than most of their New York City counterparts. They’re inexplicably light and toast-like. Bagel Oasis bakes their bagels at such a high temperature that tiny air bubble bumps form on the outside. If you like bagels with a little less chewiness and a little more delicacy, these may turn into your favorite version in NYC.
