Are there *REAL* Kaiser Rolls in DC?
Perhaps I’m living in the past, but is there anyplace in DC that still sells real, old-fashioned Kaiser rolls? They had a slightly hard crust, and were somewhat like a croissant inside. What is called “Kaiser” or “hard roll” these days is like stale white bread, and nothing at all like what my grandfather (a professional baker) made, or even what you could still find around here until the late 1990s. The clerks at places like Marvelous and Firehook thought I was from an alternate reality when I asked them. “Oh, no, these are the *genuine* Kaiser rolls…they aren’t supposed to have a hard crust. You must be thinking of ciabatta rolls.”
