[DFW] Bagels - Kettle cooked or Wood Oven Baked? [DFW]

Just as the title says...Does anyone know of anyone in the metroplex doing this? Either kettle cooked or wood oven baked?

I have only had authentic kettle cooked in NJ and would like to try a wood oven baked.

Also if anyone just has a great suggestion for a great bagel close to Lewisville (Richardson and S. Arlington is not close to Lewisville). Please try not to stray much past Carrollton, Grapevine, Coppell, Denton, Flower Mound, Valley Ranch, Las Colinas, The Colony.

  1. I am looking for a good bagel too!!! Help! So far i have resorted to buying the frozen H&H bagels from Central Market. I went to Bagelstein's (although in Dallas) this past weekend and it was gone. I will drive anywhere to get a decent one.

        Are they kettle cooked or wood fired at Ed's and Deli News?? I have been to both but have never gotten a bagel there.

          They have a deal with H&H. They are boiled in NY, flash frozen, then baked here.

          I wasn't impressed at all with the bagels (plain) from Ed's. I brought 2 home, toasted one the following day and could only ate half as it seemed dry in consistency and had an odd taste.

          How are the frozen H&H? Those are my favorite bagels ever, but I've held off on buying them frozen because I have my doubts about how well they hold up.

            You can always pull a Vincent Chase and have H&H express mail you a few dozen of their bagels via DHL.

              Too Funny! Believe me, i have definitely considered pulling a Vincent Chase many times! The frozen H&H bagels in the freezer section at Central Market (not the ones near the bread section!) do satisfy the craving but there is nothing in the world like a fresh NY bagel!
