5:00 Sichuan Soft Pretzels
V Street (address and info)
V Street is the smaller, more casual sister restaurant to the aforementioned Vedge, and it's serving up 5:00 Sichuan Soft Pretzels, a riff on the classic Asian steamed buns. The pretzels are made with a Sichuan peppercorn-laced dough and and served with a side of spicy ginger mustard. While they may not look like your traditional pretzel, these things are a hot commodity, regularly selling out shortly after they are baked at 5pm -- all the more reason to leave work a few minutes (or hours!) early.
Pretzel Crusted Chicken Bites
The Sidecar Bar & Grille (address and info)
Thanks to this GH boozer, Pretzel Crusted Chicken Bites only seem like a dish you can only sample if you’re one of the judges of Chopped. Executive Chef Brian Lofink coats diced chicken breast with hand-crumbled sourdough pretzels and gives it a quick dip in the fryer. Out come the crispy nuggets, which are served along with spicy honey mustard that combines Dijon mustard, whole-grain mustard, honey, and mayonnaise. No mystery basket needed.
