Broadway Lounge, Sydney

Broadway Lounge, Broadway, Sydney

Date: 1st August 2013
Price: $15
Type: chicken parmigiana
With: salad and chips

Thank the Schniddy gods this parma was top notch - a thick, juicy, tasty fillet topped with both eggplant AND ham and an, er, generous layer of sauce and cheese - because the chips were too chubby  and the salad was confused. Look, I don't like chubby chips, alright? I resent the way they sit on the plate uneaten because you're too bloated from Schniddy, racking you with guilt over wasted food and the poor African children.

3.25 out of 5.

The Ritz, Marrickville

Marrickville Ritz Hotel
Date: 22nd August 2013
Price: $17.50
Type: Chicken parmigiana
With: Chips and salad

Thought we'd go check out this relatively new drinking establishment in downtown Marrickville. Tucked right in the middle of a sea of excellent Vietnamese restaurants on Illawarra Road, it's not easy making the choice to have standard pub food instead..... but you know, there was an untasted schnitzel waiting to be tried.

In hindsight, I would have preferred a bowl of pho, but i ploughed on. The schnitzel was the usual shape and quality and was covered in tasty (the type, not the adjective) cheese and tomato sauce... nothing to write home about, really. The chips, however, we coated in some kind of excellent mystery coating that made them taste very lovely indeed. The salad... well, it was a salad.

Overall.... the atmosphere was pleasant... but i wouldn't go out of my way to schnitzel there again.

Note: they have daily specials.... so it's actually worth checking the menu out.
