The best Schnitzel

YVR flyboy | Feb 10, 2012 03:22 AM

Don't expect anything fancy, but this hole in the wall owned and operated by quirky Polish wife Teresa with chef Bavarian Bernard has the best Schnitzel anywhere. The Schnitzel is usually pounded after you order and every sandwich is on a triangular whole wheat bun and each Schnitzel is usually an irregular shape but measures around about a foot long and about 8 inches wide and always overflows the bun. It's hard to find Schnitzel in modern day Germany as urban Gernany has become more international. The sauerkraut and potato salad are amazing. Unfortunately , Spätzle & rotkohl(red cabbage aren't available. There are a dozen variations of condiments & the daily soup changes and is home made. They often sell out of the soup & potato salad. The last time I had the BLT Schnitzek which had crispy bacon, fried onions, tomatoes, leafy lettuce on a bun. There are only 4 seats at this counter seat restaurant & the last visit had a Viennese customer in his 30s who told Bernard in German that his Wiener Schnitzel(Viennese veal Schnitzel) was better than any he's had in his home in Vienna. He had google Schnitzel in Toronto and came here. The hours are Mondays-Thursday's 11:00 to 5pm Friday from 11:00 to 3:30pm. They are closed weekends. Don't let the shady area(especially on the north side) put you off. It's worth the trip for the food. I took home a takeaway deconstructed sandwich. With an additional purchase of 2 buns, it made 4 sandwiches.It's cash only, no debit, no credit and all the prices marked are with all the taxes included. It's one of the most affordable eateries in the Toronto area.
