golden road to perfect pretzels!
last week, all my dreams came true.
if you know me, you probably know that i’m a huge fan of the even huger soft pretzels at golden road pub. each pretzel is about the size of two human heads and i’ve been known to eat 3 or 4 of them during any given week. they come served slightly crispy and extra salty with a pot of tear-gas-strength house mustard, they are pretzel perfection.
fucking insane baked potato from golden road brewing: half a russet topped with spicy vegan cheese, bell peppers, and fried onions. it looks so good, right?!
sadly, i couldn’t eat any of this because i HATE BELL PEPPERS and they can’t do it w/out. wah wah.
anyways, my dad ate this when we went to lunch and he loved it. he loved it so much, he ordered ANOTHER ONE. how often does that happen in real life. double meal. yes!
the pretzels at golden road brewing seem to get even better and better by the day. i feel kinda bad because this place has a gigantic menu stuffed with crazy vegan items, and i’ve tried almost none of them! i get the pretzel every time i go; i can’t help it! it’s just so soft and perfect, and the mustard it comes with is hotter than any i’ve ever tasted (and i’m a colman’s addict). be careful dipping into this stuff. it’ll blow your brains out!
since my last posting on this pretzel, GR now offers 2 sizes: small and large. get the large. you won’t be sorry (unless you eat too much mustard). these pretzels are the PERFECT bar food! i wish they were available at tony’s darts away and mohawk bend as well. until then, i’ll keep getting my fix at golden road!
the pub @ golden road brewing…
…AKA my new favorite place to hang out.
golden road brewing recently opened the doors of their very vegan-friendly pub, and after one visit, i’m hooked.
in addition to a growing roster of freshly brewed beers, golden road offers an extensive menu with plenty of inventive meatless options. we tried:
the pretzel with spicy mustard. it was simple yet tasty, and the mustard was hot as hell. this also comes with a vegan cheese option for an extra charge.
next up: vegan meatballs! not all soy fake meaty, instead these were made out of rice! so delectable, and served with cornbread.
lastly: the potato sandwich (CARB HEAVEN!): roasted tatties with cheesy sauce, onions, and arugula in a huge baguette. (no peppers!)
we washed it all down with plenty of point the way IPAs, which made for a splendid saturday.
on top of the plentiful vegan food and craft beer, the atmosphere at golden road is chill and comfortable—-there’s loads of seating, the servers are friendly, and there’s a jukebox stocked with lou reed, pixies, and the smiths. the only thing i would warn about is the fact it got a bit chilly due to the giant doors, so bundle up!
OH!!! and i ran into tal ronnen today at golden road—-haha! this place is obviously a hub for vegan “celebs”!
definitely check out golden road ASAP. there’s nothing like it in LA. cheers!
