Food Thing

Obatzda at Ratschiller's Bakery and SB Cafe in Munich, Germany

If there's one thing better than cheese, it's butter. So it's safe to say obatzda, a Bavarian specialty, boasts the best mix of ingredients known to man: two thirds soft cheese, one third butter. Served with pretzels, the dish typically features aged Camembert, plus ingredients like paprika, horseradish and (how very German) beer.

Find it throughout Germany; the version at Ratschiller's Bakery and SB Cafe is particularly sublime.
