German cuisine has provided us many delicious meals but one stands out the most – schnitzel!

The Bavarian

277 Bavarian, Newmarket
The Bavarian's Hot Nashville Schnitzel

Schnitzel, schnitzel, schnitzel. The Bavarian takes schnitzel to a new level, bigger and better than you ever imagined. The schweineschnitzel weighs in at a whooping 300g of juicy pork schnitzel, almost bigger than your head. And if that option seems a tad daunting then dabble in the ultimate Jack Daniel’s platter, serving two in size, this allows you to try a selection of what The Bavarian has to offer, including the mouthwatering southern fried chicken schnitzel.

They also have Schnitty Fest taking place right now, 10 flavours of schnitzel from all across the world, $10 Wednesday specials all the way to June. The Bavarian-inspired dishes perfectly capture the essence of German cuisine, pair that with a 1-litre stein and take a seat on one of the Oktoberfest-inspired tables to enjoy the journey.
