Wooly’s Bagels Review: Loaded Bagels at Farrer Park

Wooly’s Bagels offers bagelwiches near Farrer Park

A new bagel spot is in town, and it’s located very close to the City Square mall in Farrer Park! Wooly’s Bagels is a Muslim-owned pop-up sharing the same space as the popular Korean-style sando shop, Egg Stop.

Although the cafe is not halal certified at this time, all the ingredients they use are. Despite this, I was drawn to the videos I had seen on Instagram of their oozing bagel s’mores. My co-worker’s recent rant about Whiskdom’s new bagelwiches also made me want to, so I was really looking forward to taking that trip to Wooly’s.

Food at Wooly’s Bagels

woolly bagels - double chicken frizzle

There are eight bagelwiches on the menu, including a dessert bagel. Of the seven savory dishes, five of them feature scrambled eggs which add a creamy touch to sandwiches, including our unanimous favourite: Double Chicken Crisp ($13.90).

To quote my dining companion, “it’s like Double McSpicy, in a bagel, with scrambled eggs!” There’s a jalepeno, parmesan, and nacho cheese sauce here, but the lightly spiced fried chicken cutlets steal the show. I especially liked how the crunch was balanced with the silky scrambled eggs.

The scrambled eggs are fried by the minute, as is the hash brown that comes in the GTF Bagel ($10.50), short for Get The Freaking Bagel. There is also chicken ham and truffle mayonnaise, but we stocked up $1 for nacho cheese too. I liked this bagel for breakfast; it has all my favorite breakfast items in one convenient package.

By the time I dug this, the hash brown had become soggy and had lost its crunch, so don’t get it if you don’t eat it immediately.

Whichever bagelwich you choose, you can choose a Plain, SesameWhere Cheese bagel as a base – we tried all three, and frankly, it didn’t really matter. They’re all typically dense and chewy, and you’ll want to eat them as soon as possible to get the most out of the toasty crust.

woolen bagels - otah kau

To complete our selection of flavors, the Otah Kau ($12.60), which again sees a stack of otak fillets with a slightly spicy sauce and scrambled eggs, which tempers the stronger flavors and spiciness. Although they were generous with the otak, I wish they were juicier, which would have made every bite even more satisfying for me.

Another fish option, this time without the scrambled eggs, is Bagel and smoked salmon ($14.90)which features a homemade garlic and herb cream cheese with smoked salmon.

Wooly’s Bagels currently sources bagels, chicken cutlets, otak and smoked salmon from a supplier due to space constraints, but will eventually replace them with homemade versions! In the meantime, all schmears and sauces are homemade. One thing I particularly liked was that they had cut all of our bagels in half without me having to ask, which made eating and pulling much easier.

wooly bagels - bagel smores

The only sweet option, SMORE’S Bagels ($7.90), is pretty basic, consisting only of toasted marshmallows and Nutella spread. We had to send it back, because the first one we were served didn’t have gooey, gooey marshmallows at all. They got it the second time around, but the marshmallows were mostly still whole, and still missing that ooze factor I’d seen on other IG posts.

Taste-wise, the Nutella really packs a punch, although I would have liked even more. My fellow dessert lovers inhaled it as is, so the jury is divided on this one.

Atmosphere at Wooly’s Bagels

woolly bagels - vibe

Wooly’s Bagels is only a three minute or 200 meter walk from Farrer Park Tube Station. If you come from Little India MRT Station, it’s a 13 minute walk instead. There is a fairly limited number of seats in the air-conditioned café, but there is also a high table outside.

We were there around 1pm and had to wait about 20 minutes for our order – the kitchen is small and there are only two staff taking care of everything, so be prepared to wait!

The verdict

With affordable sub-$15 prices for these stuffed, stuffed bagelwiches, you should definitely put Wooly’s Bagels on your list to check out when the cravings strike. There could be a little more variation in the toppings, but I would absolutely go back for the Double Chicken Frizzle. They are developing a buttermilk fried chicken recipe for this, which I hope will still have that spicy kick!
