The Comment of the Week: Breakfast happiness at last
[Not sure of the category]
There are two culinary requirements for ex-New Yorkers: good Chinese food and good bagels. I'm sorry to say I've given up on Chinese food in Baltimore. When the need arises, I go to DC or I eat at Thai restaurants in Baltimore (really good).
I do know about Goldberg's. I made my peace with soft bagels, but their bagels have, to my mind, a faint chemical taste. I have solved the bagel problem through mail order. You pay $1.10 per bagel and shipping charges that range from a low of $13.56 for a FedEx package of 2 dozen bagels from H&H Midtown Bagels to shipping fees over $40. The H&H bagels were OK, but a little sweet. My current favorite is Tasty Bagels in Brooklyn--reasonably dense bagels with minimal sugar added. I chose the Next Day Air Saver (UPS) shipping option at $26.31. Breakfast happiness at last.
