The Best Schnitty In Every City


While the Germans may claim to have invented the Schnitzel, Australia has definitely fallen in love with this breaded piece of goodness and even given it an Aussie parmi twist. There’s nothing better than chowing down on a schnitzel that’s larger than your face and then telling all your friends how full you are (“but it was worth it!”).

Not that you need an excuse to enjoy a good pub schnitty and requisite schooner, but on the 9th September it’s Schnitzel Day.

Here’s our run down of the best schnitty in every major city:

“We ordered a plain schnitzel and a parmigiana schnitzel between the four of us. These babies were huge, it would be safe to say, that we should have only ordered the one dish, as there was plenty left over to take home at the end of the meal. They were full of flavour and very filling.” – bargn$hopa
