Korshak Bagels review image

Korshak Bagels

This South Philly shop is making perfectly chewy, crackly crusted bagels–a result of their 48-hour slow rise process. When you get a bagel topped with poppy, sesame, or everything, they don’t hold back on the seasonings (we’re talking handheld vacuum messy). Top a bagel with one of their thick housemade schmears, like roasted long hot, strawberry, or their signature Korshak that blends whipped goat’s milk and mozzarella brine. They’re only open from Thursday-Sunday until 1pm, so prepare for a long wait unless you place an order online. They don’t do bagel sandwiches, but they do sell smoked white fish and pastrami smoked salmon by the pound if you want to stack your poppyseed yourself.
