Fact: Schnitzel is a staple part of our diet and life without this iconic, golden, crispy pub meal would be truly ordinary. Here to remind us all of the true glory and potential of the humble schnitty is The Bavarian and a brand-new 10-week-long festival dedicated to all things schnitzel.
Beginning last week, Schnitty Fest features 10 new limited-edition schnitzel flavours.
Dreamt up by The Bavarian’s “Schnitzel Masters”, who handmake their schnitzels daily, the festival begins with a Mexican schnitzel creation. Think crumbed chicken topped corn chips, spicy beef, beans, cheddar, tomato salsa, coriander, and sour cream. There's also a (possibly controversial) Hawaiian schnitty, that's topped with double smoked ham, grilled pineapple, Napolitana sauce, and fries.
Other highlights include an Oktoberfest schnitty with sautéed potatoes, wurstsalat, pickled cucumber, and mustard, a vegan schnitty, and a few variations on the iconic parmi too.
You'll be able to pair your schnitty with paddles of German beer like Lowenbrau, Hofbrau, Spaten, Franziskaner, and Paulaner (four for $20, or eight for $35).
And finally, on Wednesdays, there'll be a $10 schnitzel blitz, where all 10 of the limited-edition schnitzel flavours will be available for a very nice $10 a pop, all day long.
