Petersham Inn

Petersham Inn, Petersham, NSW
Date: July 9th 2011
Price: $17
Type: chicken parmigiana
With: chips and salad

It had been many years since i'd set foot in the Petersham Inn. Quite a nice looking pub with the art deco decor, but slightly ruined with the tacky TAB and poker machine areas. The schnitzel?.... a choice of ham or eggplant on your parmigiana was given... this specimen was the eggplant option and the topping was excellent. The schnitzel itself was a bit bland, but was easily balanced by the topping. A decent size and not over or under cooked, it was pretty decent overall; bit expensive, but... oh well.
Oh!  and the roast vegetable pizza was also brilliant.

Note: we had no $20 note so a cabcharge was used. See below for cabcharge/$20 note comparison.

Redhead Bowling Club

Redhead Bowling Club, Redhead, NSW
Date: 5th July 2011
Price: $12.50 (sauce $2 extra)
Type: chicken
With: chips and salad

Oh lordy, this was one of the best schnitzels we've seen for quite some time. Huuuge, cooked perfectly.... and for only $12.50! Amazing. The sauce was tasty and full of mushrooms (like mushroom sauce should be) and the chips were chunky and squishy (with the odd crunchy one).

So head down to this tiny little bowling near Redhead beach for a cheap drink and the biggest meal you'll get for the price.

Bazaar Beer Cafe, St Leonards

Bazaar Beer Cafe, St Leonards, NSW
Date: July 1st, 2011
Price: $22.80
Type: veal (swiss schnitzel)
With: cheese, ham, chips and salad

So yet another birthday event was celebrated with the consumption of european food and beer. Can't really complain about that. A bit of a weird place, more of a restaurant vibe than a bar vibe.

The schnitzel itself was alright. I don't really think i got my money's worth, but it was a good piece of meat cooked well all the same. The chips were quite tasty. Honestly... i'd go with something else on the menu if i ever go here again.
