|Screw your mall pretzel, this rocks|
My daughter took me to her pretzel place yesterday afternoon. She's a true believer in the soft pretzel and has gotten into the groove of getting one on her and her mother's weekly visit to the library across the street. It's just a few blocks away from us, so it was nice to stretch the legs out. And while its not the first time she's taken me to Taste of Philly, I'm a classic 'homer' that feels compelled to talk about what's in his backyard. Stop in at 42nd and College for, thankfully, a no frills experience. While they have not yet been tempted to dramatically expand their menu, they do sell a hotdog wrapped in a pretzel, which is nothing short of amazing. For the sweet tooth, there's a cinnamon twist pretzel that's also delicious. They've got a cozy little store front where you can sit on a stool and watch the street. It has a friendly, entrepreneurial feel that seems to be prevalent in this city.
|The "Pats" pretzel comes with boogers mashed in. just kidding!|
So whether you live in the neighborhood or travel through it, stop in and pick up some pretzel power from Taste of Philly. Homer out.
