Euro Bar, Hamilton

Date: 20th November 2016
Price: can't remember
Type: chicken
With: avocado, bacon, cheese, salad and chips

The schnitzel was small but cooked well. The chicken was a bit tasteless, but the cheese, bacon and avocado on top made up for it with flavour. The chips were nice and crispy and the salad had just the right amount of dressing.

3.5 out of 5.

Ashfield Hotel

Date: 11th September 2016
Price: $17
Type: chicken parmigiana
With: salad and chips

Upon first inspection the meal looked pretty good. Homemade schnitzel (of a reasonable size) with tomato, ham and cheese on top. However, I'm not sure how they extracted the flavour before serving it to me. Magical.
The crumbs were quite soggy and the chips were a bit rubbery. Maybe it was a bit late in the evening, the salad looked a bit sad.

Ashfield hotel.... Such a sterile place.

Overall 2.76 out of 5.

The Royal at Randwick

Date: 11 June 2016

It was a lunch special on the weekend, so I'm not sure if they made it horrible on purpose.

This was the veal parmigiana and it was tough and chewy. The chips were good.
The pub has dark but shiny interiors... and is also full of small children. Beware.

Keg & Brew, Surry Hills

Date: 12 October 2015

So, I think I was pretty much drunk before I even started eating this. The aim was to stave off that point of drinking that is "the pre-home hangover" also known as "alcohol poisoning". Anyway, it was oily and good. The coleslaw instead of salad also added to the lack of nutrition, which was welcomed.
Chips: too thin.

Wrest Point, Hobart, Tasmania

Date: 20 August 2015
Type: the "hunters" schnitzel at the Loft Bistro
Price: don't care, was there for a work conference

If there's a destination for an eating holiday, it's,Tasmania. Even the most ordinary food tastes amazing. This schnitzel was excellent and it wasn't just the giant glass of wine (not pictured) talking.

Worst Point. What a weird place though.

Napier Hotel, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Date: 16 August 2015
Can't remember anything else. 

Parmigiana that was well worth the wait. Busy cosy pub with a tops menu.
Chips could have been chubbier.

Beachway Motel, Ulverstone, Tasmania

Date: 11 June 2015
Price: can't remember
With: mushroom sauce, chips and salad

This excellent schnitzel definitely outweighed the loud swearing guys that decided to hang out outside my room and the fact I had to turn on the hot tap in the shower and the sink at the same time if I wanted hot water to come out.

Foghorn Brewery Newcastle

Foghorn Brewery Newcastle

Date: 21st August 2016
Type: chicken 
Price: $18 ($2 to swap potato chips with sweet potato chips)
With: coleslaw, Lemon and chips

It was cooked nicely and had an inoffensive flavour. The chips were very lovely and not too chubby. Coleslaw is coleslaw, right?
I would eat again, but probably order something green to eat it with. A little too much brown in my meal for my liking.

Cool brewery as well (you craft beer nerds would love it), but bring an extra scarf on a cold day.
Clean toilets as well. Thumbs up.
