Among the array of breads that grace this spot, my picks were the Jambon-beurre and the tantalizingly exotic Butter Pretzel. What I adore about the Butter Pretzel is that it’s dusted with just the right touch of salt, giving it that delightful hint of saltiness. The dough, naturally fermented, delivers a savory punch without going overboard. It’s a true signature of Brot Art. The Jambon-beurre, too, hits the right balance with a judicious serving of butter, perfectly complementing the moderately salty ham within the baguette.

I’m a bread aficionado, and I crisscross the country in search of the finest bakeries. This place ranks high on my list for German bread. The flavors are irresistibly addictive without overwhelming your taste buds. Each and every bread they offer carries robust flavors without being too much. Brot Art, a fusion of “bread” and “art,” played a crucial role in fueling the German team during the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. They even earned praise like ‘tastes more German than the bread I had in Germany.’ Initially, they imported yeast from Germany, but now they’ve cultivated their own unique cultures. The shop may not be huge, but it boasts an impressive bread selection. The use of rye or dinkel instead of white flour infuses the bread with a truly authentic flavor. My next visit, I’m definitely going for their crowd-pleasers โ€“ the salt and rye breads.
