I posted a while ago asking for a soft pretzel near Columbia, to no avail.
Yesterday, I was in the Times Square area, where soft pretzel carts are two to a block. So I bought one, thrilled to finally satisfy my three-week-long craving.
It was the biggest disappointment: the pretzel was fluffy and tasted like liquid smoke. There was no thin, crispy exterior, no chewy innards.
Any idea where I can get a good pretzel in this borough?
