Anyone know of a place with good jalapeno bagels? Being a traditionalist, I have never even entertained the thought of such a thing, let alone eaten one! But a friend from upstate coming to town is itching to try them - no idea where she heard of them but any help is appreciated! Thanks!
I would guess that one of your friendly local bagel shops would be happy to bake up a dozen for you. Your friend can freeze the extras. I find that bagels freeze will in zip lock freezer bags.
My suggestions because I like their bagels:
Vic's Bagel Bar
Lenny's Bagels on Broadway at 98th St.: IIRC there is a "bad boy" bagel that has jalapeno, cheese and some other flavor. I'm not sure how pronounced the jalapeno is. I like their bagels, though: I might rank them above Tal's but not above Absolute.
