Bay area Pletzel?

Kayde | Mar 22, 2011 12:45 PM

A friend has a terrible craving for pletzel: a Polish/Russian Jewish yeast bread. He remembers it baked about the shape and size of a pizza with onions and often poppy seed/sesame seeds. Unlike bagels or bialys, which are chewy, pletzel is hard, more like a cracker. Do any of you know bakeries in the Bay area that make pletzel? My search of the board has thus far turned up only traces in LA, Brooklyn and Brookline.
