Harrigan's, Hunter Valley, NSW

Harrigan's Irish Pub, Hunter Valley, NSW

Date: 28th February 2011
Price: $24.90
Type: chicken
With: chips and salad

Off to the Hunter Valley for work-related purposes, i had this delightful schnitzel paid for out of the project budget so it was extra tasty. For that price i was really expecting something pretty awesome and i wasn't disappointed. Harrigan's really has cornered the market in the Hunter Valley; being the only "pub" for seemingly miles around. Proper tasty chicken with an excellent topping. Not massive, but good quality, all eaten in a faux irish setting. Noice.

Harold Park Hotel, Glebe, Sydney

Harold Park Hotel, Glebe
Date: Some tuesday in may
Type: chicken parmigiana
Price: $15.00
With: chips and salad

For a pub that is generally empty every time i drive past, this particular Tuesday night was "going off". In terms of the calibre of it's schnitzel, I must say that i was very impressed with the Harold Park Hotel. It was small but thick, not over cooked and the cheese was extra cheesey (yes, it's possible). The salad also had a decent dressing (which makes a change from the usual "lettuce and a sliver of tomato" salad you generally get elsewhere).


Also.... for future reference, Monday night at this pub is a 2-for-1 meal night. Cheap food!
oh yeah!

Pumpernickel's, Queen's Quay, Toronto

Pumpernickel's Deli, Queen's Quay, Toronto, Canada
Spent the day at the harbor in Toronto, ended up eating at a Pumpernickel's, in the Queen's Quay food court. They had schnitzel on their menu. Ordered the dinner plate, substitute 'mash' with rice instead. Portions were fried chicken, with little or no gravy! Side includes a salad.
While not the best schnitzel (too fried, too hard, and too crunchy), it was a cheap dinner at $9. 
Vu vacationing in Toronto, Canada.
(I'm not sure why you'd go for rice over mash... very unorthodox.... but mostly exciting because i've never seen canadian money)
