Everything, Classic, and Balboa Pretzels at Pelzer's
Crown Heights

From baldies to salties, Philadelphia folk take their pretzels mighty seriously—the City of Brotherly Love was home to the first Pretzel Museum. Pennsylvania-born Leon Kirkland and his wife Barella twist up Philly-proud knots at this Crown Heights takeout shop. Shaped in figure eights and given a lye bath for that old-fashioned bierhaus flavor, the twists come in traditional plain or madcap flavors like everything (onion, garlic, poppy and sesame seeds), jalapeño-cheddar and Cran-Mary (cranberries, rosemary and lemon zest). Pretzel hamburger, slider and hot-dog buns are also on offer, as well as two mustards (spicy beer and champagne-honey) and Philly favorites like Peanut Chews and Tastykakes.
