Not About Food

Bread urban legend?

So last night I was out with a guy (originally from Philly) who operates a sandwich shop in the greater Seattle area, and he claims that the reason you cannot get bagels, hoagie rolls, etc. here (or anywhere west of the Mississippi) that taste like the ones back east is because of the alkaline levels in the water and how that works with the yeast.

Is this a load of crap or is there some truth to this?
