Bavarian Bier Cafe, Sydney CBD

Bavarian Bier Cafe, York St, Sydney


Date: 28th February 2014
Type: 1. Lowenschnitzel (pork); and 2. Swiss schnitzel (chicken)
With: 1. chips; and 2. mash... plus lemon, sauerkraut and yellow
Price: $28

Firstly, apologies for the terrible photograph, it was quite dark and phone camera couldn't handle the ambiance of it all.... and clearly, that's not a $20 note. oh well.

So for #1... we have what is described on the menu as a "crumbed giant pork schnitzel"... I'm not sure about giant (bah! I've seen bigger!), but it was certainly crumbed. As far as a verdict on its quality goes, the following applies: large, crispy, bit greasy, quite salty, costs extra for sauce!
(Sorry, that's the level of in-depth review your going to get when you ask someone for their opinion in 10 words or less).

The swiss schnitzel was mercifully smaller, but bulked up with the cheese and ham. I mean.... I think the Bavarian Bier Cafe takes full advantage of its german-esque gimmickness with the giant beers and the pretzels and what-not.... because they sure do overcharge for their food. It was good, but not $28 good. Admittedly, it was cooked really nicely, the mystery sauce was pleasant, I wasn't able to finish the whole thing, and really... you can't go wrong with cheese... so not all doom and gloom.
