Botany View Hotel

Botany View Hotel, Newtown, NSW
Date: 25th April 2011
Price: $15.00
Type: Chicken Parmigiana
With: chips and salad

Well... what other way would you spend your ANZAC day holiday than in a pub?.... and what is the only type of food more "ANZAC" than ANZAC biscuits? Well... i don't know, but i had a schnitzel. As you can see this is the standard "heath-shaped" schnitzelly portion. It was pretty tasty (as is everything at the trusty Botany View Hotel). The chips were thin and crispy and the salad was splendid... despite the large quantity of onion on top.

All in all... pretty nice for the price.... but next time I'm having the chicken burrito.

McLaren Vale

Hotel McLaren, McLaren Vale, South Australia
Date: 8th April 2011
Type: Chicken
Price: $17.50 ( i think)... it was $2.50 for sauce and about $5 for parmigiana topping... steep!
With: chips and lemon

Quite a cute little pub. The schnitzel was cooked perfectly and was a decent bit of chicken (not a processed lump of goo). The chips were also excellent. Kinda pricey for a schnitzel, but the quality made it aaalmost worth it. Not a great number of food options at night in McLaren Vale, it seems.

Special mention to the excellent artwork, especially the painting of a frog flying through space on a lilypad staring at the earth.
