Update : They have opened their second outlet at The Gardens Mall, Mid Valley.
The wait is finally over as Wetzel’s Pretzels have finally arrived to Malaysia’s shore with its first outlet in Klang Valley. I have heard good reviews from close ones about its soft baked pretzels so much so that I was
jelly jealous that they did not have an outlet here sooner. And yes… pretzel is one of my favourite go-to foods/snacks when I’m in a shopping mall.
But that was history as I was stoked when I saw this newly opened outlet while I was doing rounds in Sunway Pyramid. It is situated in between McDonald’s and Kenny Rogers Roasters at LG2. The bright contrasting colours of blue and orangey-yellow caught my attention first. Coupled that with the sight of freshly baked delicious-looking pretzels displayed at the counter, I knew I had to get
three two to try.
For the uninitiated, Wetzel’s Pretzels are known for serving delicious gourmet pretzels and thirst-crunching lemonades. They are originated from USA and they have outlets all over the world. The nearest one to us would be in Philippines.
The menu isn’t extensive but it is adequate and has the usual flavours. They pretty much cover the sweet and savoury ends. There are set deals for better value (and hungry eaters). A few caught my attention such as Garlic Butter Cheese (RM5) and Pepperoni Twist (RM5) which got me drooling.

The pretzels may look dense but surprisingly, the buttery dough itself was soft yet chewy. The combination of garlic butter and cheese is just brilliant. The crusty layer formed due to the melted cheese coupled with the mild pungency of garlic butter complemented well with the soft pretzel. It is really moreish especially when it is fresh out of the oven. The Pepperoni Twist, on the other hand, was pretty good. The presence of sliced pepperoni made it look like knot-shaped pizza… minus the tomato sauce.
Apart from pretzels, Wetzel’s Pretzels are also known for its fresh lemonade (RM4). Tart and refreshing, it is prefect drink to go with the pretzel… though I found it a little too sweet to my liking. They were real lemon pulps in it, in case you’re wondering. I have yet to try their frozen slushy but their flavours looked interesting; Kiwi Lemonade and Mango Lemonade.
Overall, the price seems a little more expensive compared to the other but judging by the size and taste, I guess it is pretty acceptable. For average eater like me, I was pretty stuff after having a pretzel and a drink.
