PDX Pretzel Throw Down #6: Fressen


Ding ding ding! We might have a winner. Fressen's pretzel ($1.75) has become the best pure pretzel of the throw down. It's a traditional Bavarian pretzel with course sea salt. The dough is chewy, the crust has just enough tooth to it to get your jaws warmed up and bathed in the perfect amount of lye and embodies everything that a pretzel should be.

That's a thing of beauty. What a perfect pretzel but where's the moustarda? What a coincidence, there is a Fressen vegan restaurant in downtown Toronto.

I totally believe you (and I admit I'm a sucker for condiments)... but that Deschutes pretzel with the cheese/mustard sauce still looks like the best to me.

Pretzels must be something very popular in the Fall in the US, this is the third or forth blog post about it. This one looks great.

Helen - I know... I was missing the moustarda, but alas it was just a simple bakery stand at the farmers market. I'm getting obsessed with moustarda...

JustinM - I will need to revisit Deschutes. You should too when you visit PDX.

Elra - I am too!

Eva - Oh really? HAha that's funny. It's probably because of the Oktoberfest season. Or maybe people are getting sick of bagels and fries?
