Carrer de Mandri, 3 Barcelona
An authentic New York style bagel in Barcelona is a prized treasure. Fortunately, Boston Bagels delivers them right to your door. While bagel-shaped breads or croissants can be found around town, a true, chewy-on-the-inside-crispy-on-the-outside bagel reminiscent of the ones that Jewish immigrants from Poland introduced in New York City is a rarity in Barcelona. Boston Bagels comes close, offering up a wide selection of bagels in traditional flavors, including sesame, poppy seed, plain, and onion.
Of course, this being Barcelona, lox and a schmear of cream cheese (aka “Philadelphia” as the Catalans call it) are readily available at the nearest grocery.
Place your orders via WhatsApp by Thursday afternoon to have them delivered to your door every other Saturday morning — just in time for a lazy weekend breakfast. Boston Bagels is a virtual store.

Mi-Mo Korean Cosmetics A recent addition to the Korean Cosmetics in Barcelona club, the relatively small Mi-Mo was started just a year ago by entrepreneur Tamara Kovkel. Despite a smaller storefront and online presence, Mi-Mo delivers a more affordable collection (sheet masks for only 1.50€) of unique Korean beauty treatments combined with one-on-one instruction about how to use Harry-Potter-potion style products, such as soothing placenta face masks, snail mucin serums, and spider web toners. A second location is coming at Calvet, 44. Most popular product: Secret Key Lemon Sparkling Peel Gel (13.60€) To Try: Gel-consistency toners that don’t require a cotton ball or swab. The folks at Mi-Mo have strong feelings about adhering to toner use, despite it being an extra step shoehorned between post-cleansing and pre-moisturizing. The delicious smelling Hyaluronic Moisture Toner from It’s Skin (16.99€) makes it easier to add it to your routine.
