Upon returning to Shanghai, I was delighted to discover a few new (well, new for me) spots for bagels. The first I tried was Boom Boom Bagels on Anfu Road, with its an attractive purple shopfront and a pretty industrial-grey interior. Only after chatting with the waitstaff did I find out that it’s actually by the same owner of the famed Sumerian Cafe on North Shanxi Road. Aha.

在巴黎三年後回到上海,驚喜的發現這裏居然多了不少吃貝果的好去處。我第一家去試的,是安福路上的Boom Boom Bagels。被亮眼的紫色門面吸進去後,發現室內的簡潔工業風格也很漂亮,看得出是花了心思設計的。和店員聊過才知道它原來和陝西北路上的咖啡名店Sumerian Cafe是同一個老板。哎呀,原來如此。

Naturally, Sumerian Coffee.

店裡用的自然是 Sumerian 的自家咖啡。

There are about 10 sandwich options to choose from at Boom Boom Bagels, or you can build your own by choosing plain, sea salt, sesame, parmesan, or everything bagel then load it with your favorite ingredients. I tried a “Chicken Zeus” (56 RMB) sandwiching bbq chicken, tzatziki, radish, pickles, and cream cheese. Toasted, delicious as a bagel should be.

在 Boom Boom Bagels 點三明治時可以選擇原味、海鹽、芝麻、帕瑪森芝士、或混合貝果。我挑了原味的 “Chicken Zeus”(56元),裏面夾了雞肉、酸奶黃瓜醬、奶油芝士、奶油生菜、小胡蘿蔔、蛋黃醬。烤過的貝果外皮脆脆的,內裏依然充滿嚼勁,非常好吃。

I also had some “Open Face Bacon Tuna Melt” (60 RMB) with tuna salad (tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onion), bacon and melted cheese. A heavier one, pretty good too.

另一個選了用白芝麻貝果做的 “Open Face Bacon Tuna Melt”(60元),上面放了金槍魚、蛋黃醬、芹菜、元蔥、再疊上培根和芝士烘烤。比較肥的一款,也好吃。

Can take out, can deliver.

可外帶,可外送。

Happy with lunch at Boom Boom Bagels, I decided to drop by Sumerian Cafe the very next day. This bright little place has a cozy neighborhood cafe vibe, its decor more light-hearted than that of Boom Boom, and even the staff were carrying warmer smiles.

在 Boom Boom Bagels 吃的開心,我隔天馬上又去探了Sumerian。如朋友所介紹,這是個舒服的 neighborhood cafe,裝潢和 Boom Boom Bagels 相比更輕松,而且服務人員們都非常友善,笑容溫暖。

Bright blue windows, mixed tile floors, lots of wood.

藍色的窗戶很明亮,不同顔色拼接而成的木制地板很溫馨可愛。

Other than the typical espresso-based drinks, Sumerian Cafe also has a crated latte menu. I went with the Lemon Peel Lavendar (42 RMB), a huge cup made with two espresso shot, milk, lavender-infused honey, and lemon peel garnish – excellent, with just the right amount of lavender flavor. The other options, like Maple Sage, Coconut Cayenne, Jasmine Matcha, Muscovado Butterscotch, and Spiced Pumpkin all sound super alluring…must come back and try them all.

Sumerian Cafe 除了有一般的咖啡之外,也有不少特調。我這天點了 Lemon Peel Lavendar(42元),裏面有兩個espresso shot、牛奶、薰衣草蜂蜜、最後以檸檬皮點綴。薰衣草的味道不會太重,剛剛好。其它咖啡聽起來也相當有趣,比如加了蜂糖和鼠尾草的 Maple Sage,椰奶辣椒 Coconut Cayenne,和南瓜香料 Spiced Pumpkin…讓人忍不住想要回來把它們一杯一杯喝一遍。

Sumerian Cafe and Boom Boom Bagels have the same bagel menu, and on this visit I tried the Jalabeef (60 RMB) with beef shin, jalapeno escabeche, mozarella, tomato, and cream cheese – loved it. My friend had the Sailors Legs (65 RMB), with smoked salmon, red onion, green olives, hummus, ricotta, and cream cheese, which she quite liked as well. No pictures, oops.

在 Sumerian Cafe 同樣也能吃到美味的貝果三明治。我喜歡夾了牛肉和墨西哥辣椒的 “Jalabeef”(60元),朋友點的 “Sailors Legs”(65元)大力水手煙熏三文魚貝果三明治也不錯,除了一般會和煙熏三文魚搭配的紅洋蔥和奶油芝士外,還加了鷹嘴豆泥和自制 ricotta 芝士。沒有照片,oops。

On another note, Sumerian Cafe is a dog-friendly place. Look at this cutiepie.

順便一提,如果你有養狗或者喜歡狗的話,Sumerian是個歡迎小毛球們出入的地方。別的寵物沒看過,不過應該也ok吧?
