Cricketers Arms

The Cricketers Arms - Cooks Hill, Newcastle
Date: 23rd May, 2009
Price: ummm... $16 (I dont know, I didnt buy it)
With: Chips and salad and gravy

Never fear... this is actually the small serving.... and appears to be half of an average sized schnitzel. The eater of this schnitzel didn't have a great deal to say about it, but she didn't die. So i can only assume it was edible and non-poisonous.

Franks, Townsville

Franks, Townsville, Queensland
(i'm assuming it's:
Frank's Pizza Napoli & Vesuviana Restaurant)

Hey - we had dinner at 'Franks' on Saturday night and these are what emerged from the kitchen if you ordered a schnitzel. Service was very scary and the place is obviously a front for mafia money laundering. Apparently though the schnitzels were tasty and massive - no sides needed here! (Pizza on the other hand was something else... ).

Finally a decent schnitzel has been found in Townsville!! YEAH!!

Brecknock Hotel, Adelaide

Brecknock Hotel, Adelaide
Date: Tuesday 5/5/09
2 Chicken Schnitzels with Mushroom Sauce (not for the same person)
With:Served with salad and eleven small chips (literally, I counted)
Price: $10

Enjoyed by Dan and Peter

The schnitzels were good.
Decent quality chicken, not too large (large schnitzels generally make me nervous)
and the crust was excellent - reminiscent of a Japanese 'Panko' coating according to Peter.
The gravy was very nice too.

Only complaint was the serving of the chips - 11 small chips hidden and steaming under the schnitzel.
I know its only $10, but the chips cannot be the most expensive part of this dish, surely?
Peter correctly remarked that he would much rather pay $12 for the same schnitzel...
with a decent pile of chips.
