Rudy Maxa Asks Montrealian Bagel Maker Whether He Prefers Montreal Or New York Bagels—And His Answer May Surprise You

During a visit to a Montreal bagel shop on today’s episode of the PBS progrum Rudy Maxa’s World, the titular host was looking to stir up sediment on a rivalry as old as a man that was born a long time ago.

Maxa was no doubt hungry for blood—as the bagel maker gave a walk-through of the ingredients and techniques that make a Montreal bagel, Maxa loomed in the background, ignoring all that was said and done, visibly salivating, ready to hit the man with the controversial question that was on everyone’s mind.

Then, the bagel maker finally shut up. Maxa pounced.

“So, which do you like better, Montreal or New York bagels?” asked Rudy, crossing the point of no return.

After a full half second of silence, the bagelman answered, to the surprise of everyone present: “I like Montreal bagels.”

There you have it—the man who makes bagels in Montreal likes his own product more than one that was made somewhere else.

Next week, I hope to catch a rerun of Maxa’s trip to the Pacific Rim, where he asks a native whether or not that rim is the best rim in the world.
