that schnitzel place calgary

tortue | Sep 30, 201106:25 PM

Let me preface this review by mentioning that I am on a quest to find a Calgary equivalent to the holy grail of sandwiches...the italian veal sandwiches found prevalently in Toronto. These sandwiches are piled high with fresh pan fried breaded veal, with a wonderful tomato sauce and optional hot peppers on a crusty kaiser bun.
Although the schnitzel place does not profess to sell such a feast of flavours, it does offer some interesting alternatives...cudos on their originality.
I ordered the chicken schnitzel dolce vita which consisted of a pan fried chicken schnitzel with carmelized onions and freshly sauteed bell peppers and a tomato sauce on a soft sourdough bun. The result was very good, however not quite the holy grail standard (perhaps only because of my expectation of what the holy grail looked like).
The sandwich was good and filling...the ingredients were all high quality and fresh. Price was considerably higher, $9.75, than the larger, tastier, italian veal sandwiches of which I was comparing ($6.50), but this is Calgary, and the market is used to paying more.
All in all, one of the better sandwiches in town
