Where to dig into Brisbane’s best schnitties
Trust us, they’re worth crossing the road for.
Whether you like them plain, smothered in gravy or layered with delicious parmi toppings, there’s no denying a chicken schnitzel is the superior pub feed.
Every gourmand has a little black book of pubs, hotels, and restaurants that they know serve up a mean schnitty… here are a few of our favourites!
THE BOUNDARY HOTEL | WEST END
In our eyes, the perfect Saturday arvo consists of gathering our nearest and dearest, heading to the Boundary’s epic backyard, and hoeing into a chicken schnitty and a schooner. The Boundary’s popular schnitzel is served alongside golden fries, charred broccolini and a lemon cheek for squeezing.
THE BAVARIAN | VARIOUS LOCATIONS
Up there with the best of the best, The Bavarian offers top quality schnitties–and plenty of them! Take your pick from crumbed chicken or pork, get it parmi-style with smoked ham, mozzarella and Napolitana, or check out their vego offerings! The crumbed confit mushroom schnitty is topped with mozzarella and Napolitana sauce, while the vegan schnitty consists of a potato and mixed veggies fried to perfection.
TINGALPA HOTEL | TINGALPA
We like our schnitties thick and juicy, and the folks at the Tingalpa Hotel agree that’s the secret to their award-winning schnitties. Crowned “Queensland’s best chicken schnitzel,” Tingalpa Hotel’s 300g beauty comes with your choice of sides and a range of toppers (meat lovers, Hawaiian, parmigiana) and can even be upgraded to 1kg monster if you’re game!
GRAND VIEW HOTEL | CLEVELAND
Food, booze, views. What more could you want? Every day trip to Cleveland should include a visit to the iconic Grand View Hotel, particularly when their chicken schnitzel is this good.
OSBOURNE HOTEL | FORTITUDE VALLEY
A one-stop shop for an elevated pub feed, the Osbourne Hotel has a range of classics on offer, including a drool-worthy schnitty. Think chicken breast coated in a delicious parmesan and thyme crumb, served with salad and rustic fries.
BRISBANE GERMAN CLUB | EAST BRISBANE
It would be pretty schnit of us to leave the German Club’s very own Zum Kaiser off this list! Their chicken, pork, or veal schnitzels are as traditional as they come and are served with your choice of chips and salad or mash and greens. Want to get even meatier? The Kaiser Taster features a pork schnitzel as well as crispy pork belly, cheese kransky, and a mountain of sides.
FELONS BREWING CO | CBD
We had to chuck a sneaky parmi into this list, because Felons’ is too darn good to resist. A slightly gourmet take on the classic, their perfectly pounded chook is topped with bocconcini and prosciutto, and served with a rocket salad and chips.
REGATTA HOTEL | TOOWONG
The Regatta Hotel’s homely River Road Cafe dishes up cafe classics and pub favourites, like a parmesan and parsley-crumbed chicken schnitzel served with gravy, chips, and salad.
God bless Austria for sharing this perfect dish with the world.
