Although the wait can seem unnecessarily long during off-peak hours, the tantalizing smell from the kitchen promises that is worthwhile and the food indeed lives up to the expectations.
The Bamberg is slightly spicy with a strong hint of dijon mustard and schnitzel that is cooked to perfection – crisp on the outside yet tender on the inside. The pretzel brioche makes every meal hearty but not overwhelming.
The visually-appealing Sweet Onion, served with a pink beet tzatziki sauce, is surprisingly light and refreshing. The flavor of the schnitzel is enhanced by a combination of pickled cabbage, jicama, radish and cilantro that makes the sandwich seem light and not at all calorie-laden.
The Yonz is a great choice for all vegetarians out there. Instead of the traditional meat, the schnitzel is made with a combination of corn and butternut squash. The honey-sriracha mayo adds a wonderful finishing touch to this healthier option.
No meal at Schnitz is complete without an order of the signature fries. Coated with a special seasoning, the fries have a distinct flavor and are incredibly addictive.
For a delicious and creative schnitzel sandwich, stop by Schnitz on your next trip to the East Village!
