Salty, chewy and cheap, the soft pretzel is the humble street food of Philadelphia. Its shape is unique, an oblong squashed knot, baked in a pretzel chain to best utilize oven space (because the city eats so many of them). They’re doled out from carts all over the city for breakfast, lunch and anytime snacks, always with mustard on hand for topping. Get them straight from the oven at Center City Pretzel Co. for 35 cents apiece. You can ask for a middle piece if you like extra chewy; if you want the most crust possible, go for a hand-twisted pretzel.
