Satisfying a Bagel Craving in Beijing - City Room Blog - NYTimes.com

Satisfying a Bagel Craving in Beijing - City Room Blog - NYTimes.com:

"The bagels — translated 贝谷 (beigu, or “precious wheat”) at Mrs. Shanen’s Bagels — are pretty decent. They are not simply rolls with holes that you find in some parts of the United States. These New York-style bagels, though slightly smaller, with a crisp crust and soft insides, are the product of a Brooklyn-bred Chinese-American entrepreneur, Lejen Chen, who wanted a taste of home when she moved to China. Ms. Chen has her share of fans. (Yes, bagels are Jewish, but they are more New York than they are Israeli or European. It was New Yorkers, after all, who brought bagels to Jerusalem.)"
