If you’re after a schnitzel as big as your head, try Braddon’s newest food offering, Schnitzel Haus in Lonsdale Street.
I know there’s one of these already in Canberra at Erindale but I have never tried it – and honestly I didn’t know it existed until the Braddon store popped up.
The newest Schnitzel Haus is located on Lonsdale Street right next to Hopscotch and had only just opened when I gave it a try. The yellow, black and white colour scheme seems to be the theme in this pocket of Braddon with Hopscotch and Schnitzel Haus having similar colour schemes. Italian and Sons is not far behind with its yellow and black logo.
But the white and yellow makes for a bright and welcoming restaurant.
I tried Schnitzel Haus with a group of friends for a weekday lunch as it is right near my work. The menu has a lot of choose from – from veal, chicken or pork schnitzels with a range of different toppings, to burgers and salads, and then a selection of desserts (on the off chance you’re still hungry after the main!). Given we were such a big group, the orders came out relatively quickly.
I’m often wary about trying new restaurants when they first open, but it was good to see Schnitzel Haus seemed to have everything working well from the customer service to the kitchen.
I ordered the Philly Burger with a chicken schnitzel, which I really enjoyed. It was tasty and filling with just enough mustard. The bread it comes in is quite dense so I didn’t eat much of it and was still full after (I’m a small eater).
Everybody walked away with stomachs full and satisfied with the food– you definitely won’t go hungry no matter what you order. All the schnitzels that come as a main were huge. The schnitzels in the burgers are a lot smaller and good for small eaters. They’re well priced at $14.95.
Schnitzel Haus seems like a popular lunch option especially on a sunny day with a good outdoor area out the front with a lot of people enjoying the sunshine there during the week.
I’m interested what its desserts are like and was intrigued by the deconstructed Nutella cheesecake on the specials board, but I never saw one come out so I’ll have to make a return trip. Also I’m not sure what a schnitzel banana is but I’m guessing it’s like a banana fritter.
One thing I know I won’t be trying is the Schitzel Lovers Challenge offering one of each schnitzel on the menu as well as chips.
With something new popping up in Braddon almost every week it will be interesting see how Schnitzel Haus competes with all the other food options in the area. Have you been there yet?
