Not your grandfather’s bagel, cream cheese and lox.

I just had the "Novacado" sandwich from Lennwich. They substitute spicy nova for the traditional lox, and in addition to the standard ingredients (cream cheese, tomato slices and red onion) they add horse radish, arugula, and avocado. A very delicious modern twist on a classic.

  1. Except for the avocado, sounds delish. Can I say delish here? it’s kind of prole.

    I love avocado, butbnot in a lox sammich. Can I say sammich here? It’s kind of dopey.

      No, it’s not prole. It’s just something that only goobers say. Both low and high class goobers.

      • What’s a goober? I only know that word WRT peanuts.

        It means goofy.

    • Is “delish” prole? I think of it as effeminate but not prole.

    • I think all sandwiches are prole, especially cold sandwiches. Used to work for an employer and company parties/outings were all cold appetizing, deli food. Prole and prole. I rather eat a few slices of pizza instead.

      • Stick with the cold sandwiches. Pizza is for guidos.

      • I’m a very sophisticated person — as you can see — my comment is about NYC’s Jewish prole fare vs Guido food. I’ll eat the Italian stuff and Lion would agree with me that Italians make better food than Jews. Although I think Jews make better baked goods than Italians, despite the fact that Italians are just better artisans when it comes to baked goods.

        Interestingly, there are some bakeries that are owned by Italians who make Jewish baked goods. They interviewed one Italian guy in Queens and he bragged about serving 2 different ethnic groups and making a good killing from it. Of course, this sounds like what a prole would say when something is quite lucrative.

        Appetizing in this context does not mean appetizing — it’s a “Jewish” term for what Lion was eating. It’s cream cheese, lox spread, gelfite fish, that sort of thing.

      Thank you.

  2. Sounds like 500-600 calories. You are crazy, mate!

  3. While I was living in Europe this sandwich with smoked salmon (lox), tomato, avocado, arugula, cream cheese & horseradish on crusty baguette was a frequent and favorite treat of mine. I learned to appreciate the baguette > bagels, which can be really very heavy and dense.

    Has anybody else read this cute account of a provincial French rendition of “American cuisine?”
    Apparently the march of the humble bagel to world domination continues…. not even stopping at breakfast.

    Cultural appropriation, inspiration and experimentation has indeed enriched our lives to a degree. Of course this gets overestimated by the open borders crowd and in many cases is insufficient compensation for what was lost. Indeed if it’s forgotten how to make a good artisan baguette, a lousy mass produced bagel from some factory hardly seems the worthy trade.

  4. Mates, lemme tell you what a good diet looks like:

    2 hard boiled eggs 160 calories
    2 tomatoes 50 calories
    2 apples 200 calories
    2 grapefruits 200 calories
    1 baked Korean yam 150 calories
    1 banana 100 calories
    1 vegetable soup 100 calories
    1/4 lb taboulie salad 200 calories
    1/2 lb Turkey pastrami 300 calories
    1 light beer 100 calories.
    2 coffees no sugar

    Total: 1,550 calories.

    Add to it 1/2 nonstop kettlebell workout early in the morning before work and 12 hours of active HVAC service. This, mates, is healthy, or at least that’s what I think.

    I was getting a latte in DD and there are that many calories in three (sic!) muffins! A bagel is over 300 calories! It’s totally retarded to eat muffins or bagels. I mean, how am I gonna last in my field doing all this physical stuff if I fressing all these calories? There is no way under the sun that I would. I think I would just die.

    • 1500 calories/day is pretty low. You should raise it up to around 2100, including more lean protein. Then, you will be able to increase the amount of weight you are able to lift on kettle bell and increase muscle mass. This will make you stronger and more attractive to women.

  5. Has Bejezus already taken over Whole Foods, or is that just a deal in the works? What about other grocery store stocks?
