Bagel bitch

The best thing about being in New York is the bagels. Now, I'm sure that a bagel afficianado would tell you that you can only get a proper bagel in NYC, but I'm perfectly happy with the ones I can get here.

I'm not Jewish, but I am a food-geek, and in my opinion, bagels most everywhere outside NY are comparatively blah. A doughnut-shaped pice of bread. (This seems to be especially true of the Midwest -- they seem to actually prefer bland, soft, boring food.) The bagels here, though, are actually decent. Especially, they've got that appropriately crispy bagel-crust to them, as well as some heft.

I just wish I could take thebakery with me when I go.
