Canberra Tradesmen's Union Club

The Tradies @ Dickson
Date: ooh.... 20th of December
Type: Mexican chicken (avocado, salsa and cheese)
Price: $16.00
With: pumpkin mash and veggies

I had high hopes for tradies.... but i was slightly disapointed. Yes you could eat your dinner in a tram.... but at least 50% of the area of the club was taken up with poker machines.

We did, however, win a ham..... and we're still eating it now.

Oh... the schnitzel was pretty good too... the veggies were average... as usual.


I can't remember where this was from!

I'll have to update this later.

Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL

Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSLDate: 7th December 2008 (work christmas party hangover cure)
Type: chicken
Price: $12
With: veggies (mostly beans) and potato bake

Pretty tasteless schnitzel. The only flavour came from the burnt crumbs on the outside. The veggies were hardly cooked (which makes a nice change from over cooked veggies)... the potato bake was awesome.

Notice i couldn't even stomach a beer at this point!

Schnitzelmühle Delmenhorst, Germany
The entrance to the Schnitzelmühle in Delmenhorst, Germany.
Note the big XXL sign on the window, really hard to miss, and although there were 4 of us there today (see the pictures) there is no picture of their special (2.5 Kilo Schnitzel, which if you eat in under 60 minutes with the owner watching you, not only you just do NOT pay, but you take home with you 100 Euros, as stated on the menu) besides all this, their XXL drinks (beer or cola) of up to 3 Lt. making it by far the best place I have visited in Germany...

Homemade -but slightly fake looking

Lowe Family Schnitzel, Sydney

hmm these look tasty... homemade schnitzel, you can't go wrong.... however, i'm a little intrigued as to why they are almost perfectly round.
I'm also a bit fan of the plate.

No twenty!

Palm Springs

This one's from Johannes Restaurant in Palm Springs. Maybe the best I've ever had. Chef is Austrian, so that might have something to do with it. Those are potatoes on top, though they are sliced to resemble sausages. Cranberry relish, and cucumber salad on the side. Glass of Gruner Vetliner.

Here's the website.

Making an Evening of it.

White Cockatoo Hotel
Terminus Street, Petersham

What better way to spend a Saturday night then to form a large posse and head down to the White Cockatoo (after spending the day having a few drinkies and playing frisbee in the park).

Anyway... to cut a long story short, there were a few people who had grown tired of hearing
about the scary size of the schnitzels served at the White Cockatoo and decided to make the trek down from Newcastle to Sydney to try one out.

I don't know. Even I'm astonished at how they can make something so big from a chicken AND how they make enough money to carry on serving such huge meals. Even being a Saturday, when you would expect a pub would be doing most of it's business, there weren't many people in the pub and by 10pm we were the only people there.

Below are some happy snaps of the evening (click on the pictures to see uber-sized ones):

Antipasto and Florentine (still with the two fried eggs, no less)

Boscaiola, Marinara and Supreme (also evidence of our expertise at the chocolate machine)

Balkan Style

The Europe Grill
506 King Street, Newtown, NSW
Date: ooh January?
Type: pork
With: skinless sausages, a piece of lettuce and half a raw white onion.
Cost: err, i can't remember

This place is really not suitable for vegetarians. Macedonian food.... very meaty and potatoey. Also, the restaurant is very dark.... possibly so you don't realise that distinct lack of vegetables.

Anyway, what we have hear was what was called "natural schnitzel" on the menu... there was a Macedonian word for it, which I can't remember.

Pretty awesome tasting though. It was basically flattened and grilled pieces of pork. Nice and tender with a tasty smoked flavour.

I do recommend this place as far as cute little bizarre restaurants go, but make sure you only eat salad for the day before and after.

Stack of Schnitzel

The Orchard Hotel, Chatswood, NSW
Date: February 14th, 2006 (Katrie's work leaving do - she's gone on a schnitzel hunt in China for a year)
Type: Chicken Schnitzel stack
With: salad (cucumber, tomato, lettuce, capsicum) mayonnaise and half a lemon.
Price: um.... about $15? I can't remember, I didn't pay for it.

Review: well... this is one of the worst actual schnitzels I've eaten in a while. I'll give them points for an innovative presentation (cut up and formed into a stack with the salad), but the actual piece of schnitzel itself was burnt and the crumbs weren't sticking to the meat.

Also, I only had a $10 note. But that's OK, because it wasn't even nearly half a good as most of the other schnitzels featured here.

The Panania Hotel - Panania, Sydney, NSW
Date: 5th Feb 08
Price: $18
Type: Chicken Parmigiana
With: Chips & Salad

Awesome schnitzel, very large pieces, that is one piece of schnitzel, can get chicken or veal, in either regular or parmigiana, chips and salad with it, and balsamic vinegar also available on the salad. Lots of other things on the menu, great atmosphere, right next to panania train station, one of the best schnitzels i've had in a long time!

Another $5 gem

The Gateway Hotel, Islington (Newcastle)
Date: 8th of January
Price: $5.00!
Type: Chicken
With: Salad, chips and gravy.

This is great, they have $5 meals at the gateway hotel (g-club) now .. one of them being a schnitzel. The best bit is there are no catches, you dont have to get a drink with it and they didn't even charge me extra for gravy!

So this is what you get for $5 .. salad, chips, chicken schnitzel and your choice of sauce .. my friend got mayo. They arn't huge but not bad for 5 bux.

RSL Magic..... well sort of

Chatswood RSL Club, Chatswood, NSWDate: 4th of January
Price: $11.00
Type: Chicken
With: Veggies, lemon, gravy, a slice of tomato and a piece of lettuce.

I know that RSL food is generally cheap and nasty, but this was just terrible.... and not overly cheap either. I can't put my finger on what was so wrong about it because there were too many things.

Lemon AND gravy?

Veggies AND "salad"?


Although i must say... the carrot were not boiled to oblivion like many club carrots

Note: the beers are cheaper than at any other RSL i've been to (if you're a member)
