Community Facebook Group Is Rating Australia's Best Chicken Parmigianas
There are probably millions of groups on Facebook that can be as broad as The Sun Appreciation Group to the very niche, like celebrating purple snakes found in Snakes Alive packets.
But there is one group that every Aussie should want to join if they enjoy one of the most celebrate pub meals you can find Down Under.
The group is simply called 'Parmis and Pints' and it sees users post photos of their best chicken parmigianas next to whatever golden liquid they prefer.
While it's not meant to be competitive, there are some who believe their local does the best parmi/parma.
The official Facebook page reads: "Whether you're having a Parma or Parmy... plug the watering hole you're drinking at and drop your plated chicken soaked in cheese and the rest. Eat slow, drink up... hoorah legends."
There are a few rules if you want to join and they are fairly straight forward.
"No steaks, pies, salads (unless on top of parmy) or anything unrelated to the holy grail of pub foods. Must have beer as a date for your plate," the page says.
There was actually a big survey that was released earlier this year that crowned Australia's best chicken schnitzel.
If you're in South Australia, you're in luck because Adelaide's Schnithouse has been crowned the winner.

Wotif.com compiled a list of all the places that are best rated for their schnitzel and this joint on Rundle Street came out on top because they have 'over 20 varieties on the menu'. Can you imagine getting to choose from nearly two dozen different types of schnitzel?
If you're not in South Australia, fear not, there are some very reputable places in other states that have cracked the top 10 list.
Coming in second and third, respectively, are Mrs Parma's in Melbourne and the Shamrock Hotel in Alexandra, Victoria.
Restaurants in New South Wales featured prominently in the top ten, including Una's in Sydney's Darlinghurst (fourth), the Seaview Tavern in Woolgoolga (fifth), the North Wollongong Hotel, Wollongong (sixth), and the Settlers Inn in Port Macquarie (eighth).
The Tingalpa Hotel (seventh) was Queensland's only entry, and the Palais Hotel and the OG Hotel in South Australia came in ninth and tenth places, respectively.
Interestingly, there is a lot of thought that goes into crowning who has the best schnitty.
People reported that the 'crispiness of the crumb' and the 'crunch of the schnitty' were big factors when determining whether the meal got a thumbs up or down.
Obviously the 'bigger the better' played a role in decision making and people also reported that a good portion and quality chips are essential factors. Interestingly, people also couldn't decide whether they preferred to have their chips underneath or on the side.
