The Salty Beef Beigel is the best thing you can get. The soft Beigel with the melting beef and the slightly hot mustard will hit every tastebud that you have.

One reason to go to Brick Lane is this beigel with salty meat. This time no long queue so I’m lucky. The salty meat is carved in front of you. And it’s sooooooo much and soooo delicious. The only beigel in London for me.

This is a MUST if you're visiting the area. The famous Bagel Shop. Not expensive and there's also cake slices and tea/coffee/beverages at affordable prices. I have tried many bagels through the years and all of them are great.

The Salt Beef is the king here, and the Bagels (Beigels....?) are exactly what they should be. It’s a fairly well known institution in east London, you have to visit it and experience something that has fed hungry Londoners for years. When you arrive you...More

A foundation of the East London food scene! This bagel joint is open 24/7, everyday, and offers freshly baked bagels and breads. A plain bagel is only 30p, and always good and fresh thanks to the large volumes they sell. I love the salt beef...More

Try to go early in the morning as it will get busy with tourists etc later in the day. There is nothing fancy about this place. Just a counter where you order, so it's just takeaway. Their salt beef beigel is a classic, but they...More

A place that's open 24/7 is a rare sight in London... The bagels are super fresh and yummy! They're known for the salt beef with pickles and mustard bagel but as a vegetarian I've tried other bagels and they were excellent too! I highly recommend...More

I don't know i'm afraid, you would have to look on their website or contact them direct. There are dozens of types of bagel so i'd say it's a possibility!
