Hello, Gorgeous

Today we drove sixteen miles for a bagel.

A New York style bagel.  Yes, there is a difference.  And in Tucson, a half-hour drive for a bagel of this quality is worth it.  

We went to a new place called Bubbe's.  Located on the East side of town.  There's almost no reason to go to the East side of town because generally, they have everything we have on our side of town....except New York style bagels.  

Bubbe (pronounced Bubbee) is Yiddish for Grandmother.  And there were a few touches in this place that might remind you of your Jewish grandmother.  Like the Juicy Fruit gum.  Although, I think that's a staple for all New York grandmothers.  And Scrabble.

The Juicy Fruit sits on a shelf with other Jewish standards....the picture of Barbra Streisand Streisand being a standout among them. 

Hello, Gorgeous.  

Ed and I each ordered two bagels - one plain, toasted with buttah, and the other with a schmear.  I tried the chive and green onion, Ed went with plain.

The bagels not only look beautiful, they were also delicious.  Just like a New York bagel - a glossy crust with a bit of a bite, and chewy inside but not doughy.  I don't know how or why I walked out of there without taking a dozen with me.  I guess I was in a rush to eat the one in my hand I just didn't think of it.

If you have an opportunity to visit Bubbe's, I say do it.  It's worth the trip from any side of town. 

But be prepared to stand in line.

You can find them in El Dorado Village at 1101 N. Wilmot Road.
