Oktoberfest at the Lowenbrau - The Rocks, Sydney
Date: 20th of October, 2007
Type: Chicken
With: veggies, mash and mayonnaisey stuff

This was possibly the worst schnitzel I've had. I will say, in their defence, that they were being mass produced for this occasion because the chicken inside was uber-processed and the coating was more of a batter than a crumb.
The mash was fairly good though and I did get to play a small cowbell.

I must admit, the point of eating this meal was more to make sure that the extreme volumes of beer weren't going down onto an empty stomach (an action that my body appreciated greatly the next day).

Strawberry Hills Hotel

Strawberry Hills Hotel, Surry Hills, NSWDate: 19th October 2007
Type: Chicken
Price: $5
With: Mash and green

You can't really go wrong with something that's $5 (unless you're eating dinner at the Landsdowne)... yeah, i figured that even if I ate 3 mouthfuls I'd still be fine with the amount I spent.

Not worth anymore than $5 though, but if i was strapped for cash, this is where i'd head.

(Sorry about the shite photo, it was at this moment that i realised that my camera in my phone had no flash - and the lighting was turned down in the pub so you couldnt tell that those steaks you were eating were actually made from compressed dog food (possibly))

Royal Exchange Hotel

Royal Exchange Hotel, Marrickville
Date: 14th October 2007
Type: chicken
Price: about $12
with: chips, salad and gravy

Apparently this was quite a tasty one (coming from someone who seemed to know their schnitzels). Very awesome chips at the place as well, I must say.

Another trip to the White Cockatoo

White Cockatoo Hotel, Terminus St, Petersham

Ah, these specimens were seen on a Campbell family jaunt to the White Cockatoo (where they also won the trivia night and won a handsome $40 voucher for the bottle shop).
A loverly time was had by all and schnitzel was eat for lunch for the rest of the week.
I can't even look at these schnitzels without feeling slightly ill.

Basically, I have to advice you to check this place out if you haven't already.
And make sure to own up if you have to have a post-schnitzel spew.

Petersham RSL - after the bistro upgrade

Petersham RSL, Petersham, NSW
Date: sometime in September
Price: about $13 with member discount
Type: Chicken
With: veggies and pepper sauce

Well.... apart from the vegetables being boiled beyond recognition (as the usual case in club bistros) the schnitzel wasn't bad.... and again, you can't go wrong with $3 schooners.

Just one thing... i wouldn't advise that you try the Sunday roast at this place. I've never eaten anything worse.

Have I got Schnitzels for you.....

Schnitzel from home...
.... but we call them 'cotolette'.

My Zia Vincenza made these. They're great. Obviously real chicken, and
heaps of parmesan and parsley in the crumb.

They cost me $0, but they probably cost her more than that.

Love, Dan
