Do kinda miss those bagels though.


The first time I tried them was when I was visiting this high end, upscale mall that had just opened a few months earlier. I was hungry & wanted something to eat, but the food court prices were ridiculous. Then I saw the Panera Bread, so I went in & got two Asiago cheese bagels & a Coke for just under three bucks.

Nice little snack that didn't cost an arm & a leg.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I wonder what East Coast Jews think of the bagels at Panera.  Many mock the bagels here on the West Coast for being little more than regular old rolls with a hole in the middle.  The bagels I grew up on were dense and chewy, not soft.

I grew up in NY (Lawn Guyland to be precise) so yeah, I know exactly what you mean.  When we moved to CA I had trouble finding a decent bagel.  I had high hopes for Noah's with their NY subway theme but nope, just a roll with a hole.  When we moved to Palo Alto I found a place called Izzy's and finally, the real deal!  They even have baked salmon salad, and of course they're always busy.
I've never had a Panera bagel.  That would be like having soba noodles at Panera.

The reason that they're dense & chewy, is because just prior to baking them, they dunk them in boiling water for about a half a minute or so.

Same with the big, soft pretzels, which are really nothing more than bagels stretched out thinner & folded in a knot.

I've had bagels in NY before. They're certainly better than most of what you get at places like Einstein & so on.

I think Lender's bagels are actually pretty close to what I remember having there.

[look!]
I want to beat the announcer to a pulp for more reasons than one...the BIG one being *I* have *never* eaten in a Panera Bakery, but I have helped build one and this jerk has just killed all the anticipation built up inside of me.
About 10 miles from here is a Panera, built about 15 years ago, at an earlier time when I was watching over 'The Estate At The Swamp' (I was bored and wanted something to do for a few days, so, went to Labor Ready and got on the construction crew for a week). The BIG event was when they delivered the bread oven - none of us 'Slave Ready' crowd got to work on it...and it didn't do noodles.

Yeah, but they probably serve Top Ramen, not any of that more lowly ramen.

In my humble opinion that noodles and such doesn't sound all that filling. I've eaten at a Panera Bread ONCE I can't remember what I ate there probably not that memorable at all. Oh yeah it was a sandwich of some sort, I think. I believe it coated $8.00.

I had one of those bowls once (half-price coupon for watching a few of those dumb videos on their site), it was ok.  If I want real pho there are about eight places within walking distance though.

'Eat Adventurously!' sounds too much like 'Russian Roulette with food'.

Makes me think of Anthony Bourdain eating whatever nasty animal parts the natives give him.  Yak scrotum is adventurous, chicken soup with soba noodles is not.
