Schnitty Fest

Ten weeks, ten creative schnitzel variations — and a cheeky $10 Wednesday special if you want to sample them all.

It's the German culinary classic that's become a true blue pub favourite — and now the humble schnitzel is getting its very own ten-week celebration courtesy of The Bavarian. Folks, get set for Schnitty Fest.

Running from Wednesday, March 31–Wednesday, June 9, the event sees the German beer hall's Newmarket outpost paying homage to this beloved dish with an exclusive menu of ten different schnitzel creations.

On offer right through the festival is a truly diverse lineup, featuring everything from a Mexican-inspired schnitty topped with corn chips, salsa and spicy beef ($28), to a crumbed mushroom parma served with cabbage slaw and fries ($26). The Nashville variation takes a trip through southern USA by way of some southern fried chook, potato gems and a chipotle aioli ($30), while the aptly named Oktoberfest ($30) comes teamed with sautéed potatoes, mustard and wurstsalat (sausage salad). And the pork-based Schweineschnitzel ($30) will send all the traditionalists to bread-crumbed heaven.

What's more, as a special hump day treat, diners will find the full range of schnitzels dropped to just $10 all day long every Wednesday.

And as always, The Bavarian is pouring a slew of both Kiwi and German beers to wash down your schnitty feast in style.
