French Toast Pretzel Bacon Egg & Cheese: fair play or something more sinister?
Earlier today, NJ.com food and culture writer Jeremy Schneider tweeted out a photo of a bacon egg and cheese on… a french toast pretzel? Yup, you read that right. And you saw the feature image just fine too, but here’s the tweet just for good measure:
Like many of you, my first thought was, “Oh fuck,” followed immediately by “where the fuck can I get that?”
Well, folks, I’ve got the answer here for you (courtesy of the Twitter replies). You can order one of these bad boys at Rowhome Coffee, right on the corner of 26th and Pine.
Now, there are some out there who feel the french toast pretzel is a bit too unorthodox. Philadelphia has rich culinary history, ripe with tradition, and the soft pretzel is an integral piece of that history. As a result, some residents on Twitter aren’t huge fans of the idea.
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of french toast, but if you apply the same cooking method to a Philly soft pretzel, I don’t know how that could do anything but make it better.
Even so, for the french toast averse like myself, Rowhome Coffee offers their sandwiches on a more traditionally prepared soft pretzel. I mean, just look at this thing. I need it. B-b-b-b-baaaaad.
I will say, It’s great to write a food article where I’m not stricken with total outrage and disgust. I’m generally on here accusing restaurateurs of war crimes for the cruel experiments they’ve committed on cheesesteaks throughout my time here at The Liberty Line.
Not this time. Plus, our newest hire Brielle Berry has been there before and says all their offerings go absolutely crazy. I think we folks here at TLL need to get down to Rowhome Coffee, try it out, and give our opinion.
