The bagel is the Holy Grail of Jewish cuisine. This circular shield shaped food is a Jewish medallion that would be worn around the necks of Jewish men if only their wives would approve. Rumor has it there's a local man that wears a gold bagel on a chain, he drives a 1983 Buick Regal, wears Member Only jackets, and recently got really bad hair implants. He's the maven on bagels in Florida. Well, forget this bagel guru. I say, "bring the bagels to the people and let them decide." That's how Battle of the Bagel was born. It will be a true measure of water, flour, yeast, poppy and sesame.
There are a few locations to get a great bagel in Aventura, Florida. Many residents in Aventura appreciate the art of making a good bagel and love their bagel shops. After years of eating in these restaurants it became obvious that customers are very loyal to their particular restaurant and swear it's the only place to get a "real bagel."
There are several spots you can get a good bagel in Aventura; however, I've decided it only comes down to two locations for an authentic bagel deli experience. You know the type of place, the kind that serves a fantastic bagel in addition to eggs, hash browns, matzoh ball soup, corned beef sandwiches, a killer cup of coffee, and every type of cookie and cake you can imagine. The type of place that serves matzah brei all year long. The two restaurants are Bagel Cove and Moe's Bagels. I included Einstein Bros. Bagels in the poll as a wild card (photo not available at this time).
