FRESH NEW YORK BAGELS! shouts the little cart at the corner of Pub Street, adding, slightly more confusingly, “wink! wink!”.

The bagels are large and plump, and I spotted my favourites sesame and onion flavoured behind the glass window. I’m on a self-imposed dairy ban and a bagel is nothing without the cream cheese, so I haven’t tasted them yet. But I love the idea of a freshly toasted bagel on the dusty Siem Reap road.

$1 for a bagel and cream cheese

Where: At the corner of Pub Street, near Red Piano, Siem Reap.
