Heavy bageling

The collective knowledge of Chowhound L.A., or at least a few opinionated posters, holds that the best bagels in L.A. are to be had at the Bagel Broker on Beverly at Fairfax. I've always been partial to Brooklyn Bagel, myself. But after my recent trip to New York, where I paid pilgrimage to both Ess-a-bagel and H & H, I finally see what people mean when they say we don't have "real" bagels in L.A. It's true, they're different. New York bagels have more tooth, a finer, yeastier crumb and are chewy, yet not tough. I grew up on the bagels at Nate 'n Al's, and while I'm not sure where they get them from, they taste just like Brooklyn Bagel to me, and thus "right."

rye, everything, pumpernickel bagels from the Bagel Broker
Anyway, initial tastes of the Bagel Broker bagels find that they are no better than Brooklyn Bagel. In fact, I like the little blackened onion shreds on Brooklyn's onion bagels to be even better than the New York specimens. Bagel Broker does make a solid, traditional, L.A.-style bagel. Matt liked the cinnamon raisin quite a bit, but I'm sorry, nothing with raisins in it deserves the name bagel. Also nice for a change once in a while are the bialys from Back East Bialy, at 8562 W. Pico.

Mr. Taster from chowhound.com here. Found your post while searching for a bagel broker website in reply to a bagel posting made today.

Maybe I'm going to BBB at the wrong time or something, but every single time I've gone (3 times now) I find them to be tough and chewy and virtually inedible without "moisturizing" condiments like cream cheese or butter. I can barely swallow the dry, gummy things.

The Bagel Broker on the other hand makes an excellent moist and chewy bagel, delicious to eat on it's own, untoasted and only seasoned with poppyseeds or salt. Delicious like a warm, soft pretzel.

So what's your take?

Typical blog. I was hoping to find some useful tips about stuff, but people tend to just vent on these things. Well, I won't let that stop me from contributing something helpful. I recently was on Bad credit mortgage loan and discovered http:\\thehomemortgageguide.com which is all about how to get a california mortgage even with bad credit. I didn't think that I qualified, but I was wrong. It's amazing what is available to you in regarding to obtaining a real estate loan. http:\\thehomemortgageguide.com helped me immensly. They made my dream of becoming a California homeowner true! I couldn't be happier to know that I have something that is mine that I can pass down to my kids.

Credit Score Improvement said...

Blogging is one of my favorite pass times, but recently I couldn't get my mind off of my money problems. I had bad credit but I owned my home in California. You would think with all of the equity in my home I could use some of that money to ease the weight of all of my other bills, but I couldn't qualify. I was searching for options when I found Los Angeles mortgages. This led me to http:\\www.customortgage.net where they helped me by mapping out exactly what I needed to do to get qualified for a mortgage loan regardless of my bad credit, even with a low interest rate. Don't miss the opportunity to help yourself if you need similar help by checking out http:\\www.customortgage.net for yourself.

bad credit mortgage said...

I see a lot of information about bad credit mortgage. I'd like to say that a bad credit mortgage lender helps those who have a bad credit score or low income. They can also help get your loan approved faster than other programs. Although getting a bad credit loan may be easy, a bad credit mortgage loan has its price – you will likely pay higher interest rates and higher closing fees.

How To Use Find A Lender Online
To get the most out of an online mortgage broker site, start with an idea of what type of bad credit mortgages terms you would like. If you are unsure what type of financing is best for you, get some trial quotes to see what payments and interest costs will be.
Don’t rely on these preliminary quotes to choose a lender though. You will find that one lender may have the best fixed-rate mortgage rates, but another lender offers better terms on adjustable-rate mortgages.
