Black Forest Inn, Minneapolis

Black Forest Inn, Minneapolis
Where: Black Forest Inn (
Date: 13 August 2010
Type: Veal
Price: $24

Underneath a healthy serving of gravy with mushrooms, was a slice of veal.  I expected the veal portion to be breaded, as with the previous schnitzel dish I've had, but apparently that wasn't the case with the Jager Schnitzel.

On each end of the veal were two bread dumplings. These were very thick and condense and was a bit of a struggle for me to eat.  Lost on the war on the second dumpling. 

Although the price was a bit steep, I can guarantee you that you won't be hungry after eating this dish - in fact, it will fill you before the meal's done.

Pretty good deal for $12 but the schnitzel was a bit over cooked and god damn the dish was salty, almost died of dehydration later that night.

Salad was lame and tasted old from memory, parmigiana serving size was on the small side but you can't really go wrong for $10.

Date: 30th July 2010
Type: Chicken
Price: $13
With: Chips and salad

Well... a fairly horrid schnitzel by any standards. Might have been acceptable if it was priced at about $4. Thin and tasteless and small. 

Paddintgon RSL has a crap atmosphere, angry locals and over-priced beers for an RSL. Not to mention the very weird food ordering procedure: pay at the bar, take the receipt to the bistro and line-up to hand over your receipt THEN wait about 20 minutes for them to deep fry a cheap piece of crumbed meat. 

All in all.... a very energy intensive evening. Lazy people beware.
