Recently, I discovered the Brooklyn Bagel Bakery and I'm happy to report that they are the best bagels in Los Angeles. We have lived a few blocks from the bakery for months and I just finally bought some.
These perfect bread circles remind me of the bagels from back home. They offer the standard assortment, but the stand outs must be the Pizza or the Cheese varieties (Jalapeno Cheese is the bees knees).
Shortly after first contact, Becky started a new job at a coffee house that features Brooklyn's baked goods. Now, three times a week my apartment is filled to the brim with left over breads. I got stacks on stacks. Baker's dozens.
What I'm trying to say is that I eat a lot of bagels.
