A 10-Week-Long Chicken Schnitty Festival Is Coming To Australia


A 10-Week-Long Chicken Schnitty Festival Is Coming To Australia

Get your knives and forks at the ready Schnitty lovers, because there's a 10-week chicken schnitzel festival heading Down Under - and honestly, it looks spectacular.

The Bavarian has announced they'll soon be kicking off a festival based on the pub food favourite, with the event appropriately dubbed 'Schnitty Fest'.

Drawing on its German credentials and inspiration from an Aussie national food icon, the 10-week food fest will be showcasing 10 mouthwatering types of schnitzels, along with holding a $10 schnitzel Wednesday every week.

And just wait 'til you see drool-worthy schnitties on offer.

Ten incredible flavours have been created by The Bavarian's Schnitzel Masters, who hand-make hundreds of schnitzels daily: pounding chicken and pork to mere millimetres thick, dipping in flour and egg, dredging in house-made breadcrumbs, and pan-frying in hot oil until perfectly golden and blistered.

The new menu includes:

  • Mexican ($26)
    Crumbed chicken breast, corn chips, spicy beef, beans, cheddar, tomato salsa, coriander, & sour cream
  • Hawaiian ($25)
    Crumbed chicken breast, double smoked ham, grilled pineapple, napolitana sauce, & fries
  • Nashville ($26)
    Southern fried chicken breast, Nashville rub, cabbage slaw, dill cucumber, potato gems, & chipotle aioli
  • Oktoberfest ($26)
    Crumbed chicken breast, sautéed potatoes, wurstsalat, pickled cucumber, & mustard
  • The G&P ($24)
    Crumbed chicken breast, garlic and parmesan rub, rocket & parmesan salad, semi-dried tomato, & fries
  • Jagerschnitzel ($23)
    Crumbed chicken breast, mushroom sauce, & fries
  • Parma ($24)
    Crumbed chicken breast, double smoked ham, mozzarella, Napolitano sauce, & fries
  • Schweineschnitzel ($26)
    Pork schnitzel, cabbage slaw, lemon, & fries
  • Mushroom Parma ($24)
    Crumbed confit mushroom, mozzarella, Napolitano sauce, cabbage slaw, & fries
  • Vegan ($26)
    Potato and mixed veggie schnitzel, green salad, & fries

Of course, it'd be rude not to wash down one of the above chicken schnitties with some of The Bavarian's signature imported German beer styles, including Lowenbrau, Hofbrau, Spaten, Franziskaner, and Paulaner.

John Sullivan, Food & Beverage Director said: "We're known of as the Haus of Schnitzels and Steins for good reason.

"The Bavarian is the only restaurant and bar in Australia where eight imported German beers can be found under one roof, where they're served in traditional one-litre glass steins, and can be paired with classic, house-made German dishes.

"Our schnitzels are a perennial favourite on the menu for their generous size, fantastic bread-crumbed crunch and tender meat filling and our schnitzel festival is an homage to this classic Bavarian dish that Australians have made their own."


They'll be available across their locations in NSW, Queensland, Victoria, the ACT and South Australia and will be available from Wednesday, March 31 until Wednesday, June 9.
