Food in Mouth

Murray's Bagel

Murray's Bagel Porn

What do you do at 2pm when you have not eaten all day and the fried chicken joint closed for kitchen problems? Um, you eat an everything bagel with cream cheese. And I think the everything bagel now supersedes onion bagel as my all time favorite provided it is from Murray's. As part of my ever growing collection of "photos other people really wish I would delete" series, we shall discover someone digging for... riches in the bagel shop...

As promised to you earlier... I present, the gold digger.

As you can see, the inside of Murray's Bagel is pretty glorious. Just.. watch yourself if someone is taking pictures behind you. Maybe this doesn't belong on a food blog but hey, it's there! Hi lady! You're on the internet! Doing... something.

On to the food. Even at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon, the line had fifteen to twenty people in it. I saw this through the window and knew that it had to be decent if people were gonna wait that long for a freaking bagel. It's just a bagel right? The moment I walked into Murray's Bagel, this amazing aroma just hit me. Imagine walking out into the backyard after the grass has just been cut, and the air permeates with the fresh grass smell. Right, so it was like that, but bagel smell. Wow, AP English, you really failed me. (I'm asking my sister the name of our AP english teacher in HS, because right now the two names in my head are: Doubtfire and Dumbledore. (Hey look, double d's). Yes, the latter is not even a woman, I know). Edit: Mrs. Huddleston, I ain't no nothing about writting. Thanks a lot.

Generally I like my tofu in.. tofu form. But if you're super lactose intolerant, tofu spread is for you. I just take my lactose intolerance in stride, and I eat that cream cheese like it's crack. (oops, there it goes again, crack reference). Murray's Bagel has a good selection of tofu spreads if you happen to want it. There's two rows of spreads in the display and the front row is all tofu stuff, back row is regular cream cheese flavors.

Really though, the bagel is pretty delicious. You could taste that the bagel was not stale in anyway. Also for an everything bagel, the crust has to be flavorful and tasty instead of just bland; Murray's bagel was indeed flavorful. I suppose some people take note how chewy a bagel is, but I don't. Basically Murray's bagel is about a hundred times better than a Costco bagel, except it costs about 10 times as much because Costco bagels come in bulk, and Murray's bagel plus cream cheese is like more than two bucks. Yea, it's not a lot compared to some of the things I eat, but still.. IT IS JUST A BAGEL.

  • After consuming an onion bagel with sundried tomato cream cheese (a departure from my normal daily order of regular cream cheese, I got violent stomach pains within an hour, and 30 minutes after that I encountered a mass exodus of my stomach contents. When my boyfriend returned to tell them what happened, the counter guy took a spoonful and ate it, said "tastes fine!" and ignored him. The rest of the cliquey, elitist, snarky counter staff also ignored him, in addition to giving us the daily 'tude. I ought to have called the health dept. Don't give them your business.
