It’s not often that I’m in Parramatta these days. The last time was when I’d visited the Parole Board for my elective penology class back in university. And a lot’s changed since then –
For one, the Ogalo in the food court is now the Bagel & Coffee Company. They have 8 flavours bagels to choose from for 22 available innards combinations. Talk about spoiled for choice!
This is the Chicken Schnitzel Bagel ($9.80). It’s on a cheese bagel, with chicken schnitzel, tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise.
Watching them make my bagel, I know there’s a whole schnitzel, three slices of tomato and whole heaping of lettuce. All these innards gave me with a tasty bagel tower. The bagel was just the right chewy texture, which made it moreish. The chicken schnitzel was very juicy — the person preparing my bagel checked to make sure it was cooked when he assembled the burger, so kudos for helping customers avoid salmonella. I find the three slices of tomato exceedingly generous — one slice is usually the norm in a burger — but I love tomato!
While it’s a rather expensive bagel, it certainly doesn’t skimp on the innards.
Bagel & Coffee Company is located at Level 5, Westfield Parramatta, 175 Church St, Parramatta NSW 2150.
