Found primarily in restaurants with a central European accent, strudel is a finely layered pastry with sweet filling (apples, typically), rolled as a long loaf, baked, cut into slices, and served warm with a crown of whipped cream. In West Columbia, South Carolina, a restaurant called Cafe Strudel takes the presentation to another level by slicing a piece from a large baked loaf, then slowly grilling it with plenty of butter. The apples caramelize and the fine pastry turns crisp. Less common savory strudels can include vegetables and/or chopped meats. OWL Bakery in Asheville, North Carolina, makes one filled with herbed cream cheese, caramelized onions, and spinach.
