We took longer to reach Ottawa because Ben had to take a short nap half way, :-). Driving long distance can be tiring.
We met up with Hao & Xue at Kettleman’s Bagel Co. near their home. Ben did some research on where to eat in Ottawa and Kettleman’s Bagel came up as the best bagel shop in Ottawa.
The bagels are baked in a firewood oven.
A closer look at the freshly baked bagels.
Too bad that we were travelling, otherwise we will definitely get some for home.
Toasted Sesame with smoked meat and cheese.
The latke came with the above bagel as a combo. It’s for the toddler of Hao & Xue, a new addition to their family after immigrated to Canada.
I had the toasted sesame with lox spread.
Ben had the toasted all dressed bagel with smoked meat and cheese.
We love the bagels here as they are freshly baked. They have a slightly crispy texture on the outside and chewy inside.
Hao, thank you for picking up the tab for this meal. We were so glad to meet up with your family again.
