new york style bagels: debunked

Debunking The Myth That NYC Water Is What Makes New York Bagels So Damn Good

____________________________________________________________________

There's no disputing the greatness of New York City bagels. Any bagel eaten too far outside of the city limits (with the exception of Montreal) is usually a dense, brick round of dough that has to be toasted in order to become edible. In this current world, where we can get whatever we want whenever we want it, why can't we get good bagels in every single city of these United States?

The most popular explanation for NY bagels' glory is the New York City water. Natives -- like Larry King -- maintain that there is something in the water that makes their product impossible to replicate outside of the five boroughs. But America's Test Kitchen doesn't buy that excuse. They put the theory to the test -- a few theories, actually -- and what they found was that it is indeed bogus.

First, the cooks at America's Test Kitchen whipped up a batch of bagels with water from Brooklyn and a batch with water from Brookline, Mass. (where they are located). A blind side-by-side tasting proved no difference -- at all.

​My God, is that pastrami or corn beef?
That sandwhich must cost 15 bucks!
Strangely though, I like lox too!
