Los Angeles Pretzel Peek: Röckenwagner



Ironically, I'm currently residing in Eugene, OR for the time being, but during the last few months I was in Southern California, I did my due diligence of eating a few pretzels. Naturally, Röckenwagner was one of them. From the beginnings of my entrance into reading food blogs, I can remember one of my favorite bloggers and Totally Awesome Lady Friend, Diana, mentioning "pretzel roll" and "Röckenwagner" and "obsession" all in one post. I had to get on this. On a once in two years trip to the Santa Monica farmers market, my husband eagle eyed their stand and away we went. This pretzel is pretty much perfect in every way possible - a happily toothsome chew, a briny skin with salt crunch, and incredible fresh for sitting around the last few hours. This pretzel compares to Fressen in Portland, but more perfect in everything that you'd (I'd) want in a pretzel. I totally understand "obsession" on this one. Lookin' good, LA!

Diana - They rocked mine too. Thanks TALF.

Cathy - Ooooh, I would love to join you for one of those. Holler at a Greek woman!
