Are there any bagel shops in NYC that sell flagels? A flagel is a flat bagel. Imagine a truck rolling over a bagel in a road runner cartoon... They're really popular in N. Bergen and Rockland Co. NY. I never see them in the city and can't imagine why. They're really GREAT. Same outer crispness you get in a bagel, with a hint of the chewiness. I think if a NYC bagel shop catches onto them, they'll fly out the door.
