Non-Mutant Bagels

Okay, I've been a bit carb-phobic these last few years and haven't had a bagel in about 6 years. Today, I decided that a few carbs can't kill you and that it would be nice to stop on my way to work for a bagel for breakfast. Stopped at a small kosher bagel place (forgot the name) on Westwood Blvd., between Santa Monica and Wilshire.

Well, not only were the bagels not sufficiently crusty or chewy, but they were the largest bagels I have ever seen in my life - perhaps three times the size of the bagels I remember from my youth. Of course, Americans are so fat, since they seem to have supersized all our food.

Is there anywhere in L.A. (preferably on the Westside) to buy a normal size bagel? (True, one could only eat half and throw away the other half or save it for later, but I just prefer to buy my food non supersized).
