The Perfect Pretzel

I love German breads. They are dense and salty and pretzels are the best example of them. I have gone into supposedly German deli shop in Ottawa and asked for pretzels and the guy stared at me as if I was living in another world and said, "We stopped selling those long ago!" So I thought pretzels weren't such a popular thing in Germany anymore.

Fast-forward a few years and I am in Berlin and I am comparing bakeries' pretzels. The Kamps bakery's pretzels, for example, are too fluffy and has no salty crust. They try to make it up with putting more sea salt on top but it's not the same Anyway, I am glad to say that pretzels are alive and popular in Germany.
