Scattered with sesame seeds and oblong in shape, it looks like a traditional bagel after a game of tug-of-war. The bread is bouncy in a way that American bagels are definitely not, and fragrant and crusty with seeds, and it is most definitely not a bagel. At Jerusalem carts, you’ll get one wrapped in paper with a packet of the spice blend za’atar for dipping. At Bread Lounge, you can order a plate of labneh studded with tomatoes, olives, olive oil and za’atar with your Jerusalem bagels. Or you can just ask for some of the house-made za’atar when you pick out your bagels and they’ll give it to you on the side. .
