(Only my dad.......

"There! See? Cheshire Road is written in Bengali!" Driving down Bricklane in London, my dad was (a little too enthusiastically) trying to point out the Bengali nature of this infamous street to my little sister, Sam.

"And then here....Bacon Street! B-A-K-O-N. " We silently contemplated the irony of this one.

After the first 2-3 signs, I think most of us in the car tuned my dad out.....until he excitedly yelped:

"Now look HERE! Hot Bengali's ALL NIGHT!"

That definitely didn't sound right. Four heads immediately swiveled around to look at what he was pointing at:

"Hot Bagels — All Night"

Eh, girl - great that you wrote that blog about dad's Hot Bengalis.

Actually the sign said Hot Beigels all night, not Hot Bagels...

Beigels is the archaic spelling - that bagel shop has been around for ages and might be the oldest bagel shop in the world.

The question is which is more bang for your buck? Hot bagels or Hot bengalis? And which do you recommend for a new market entrant?
