Schnitzel is a simple food, but very difficult to make well. I love getting a huge piece of Schnitzel while it is hot and fresh,w ith just the right amount of crunch and chewiness. I usually have leftovers and take them home for lunch the next day. Unfortunately, once reheated it just isn’t the same.
As a result of my experiences I was concerned about how well a shnitzel could be when prepared on a mobile food truck. Schnitzel & Things has proven my concerns to be unfounded. I ordered the traditional pork schnitzel, the pork cutlet was pounded thin, perfectly breaded and then lightly fried until crispy and served with the required lemon wedge. The portion has huge and hanging over the edge of my plate.
In addition to pork schnitzel you can order chicken schnitzel, cod schnitzel or a schnitz burger. Also available is bratwurst.
I ordered the Pork Schnitzel Platter which comes with two side dishes. I opted for the standards, Austrian potato salad and braised sauerkraut. This platter was clearly as good, if not better, than most (if not all) the sit-down restaurants that I have gotten schnitzel at.
Another thing that makes the schnitzel from Schnitzel and Things unique are the condiments they offer. Either on a schnitzel sandwich or platter you can add a condiment like pesto mayo, chipotle sour cream, ginger/scallion/garlic relish, tartar sauce, spicy siracha mayo, ketchup, mustard or mayo. Go with friends and get a variety of the condiments and try them all!
Oleg Voss, the owner of Schnitzel & Things, worked in investment banking in Vienna, Austria before he came back to New York City with an entrepenurial spirit and the talent to serve Austrian style schnitzel.
Hey Oleg, how about adding Austrian style Potato Pancakes with sides of sour cream and apple sauce? It would be a great addition to schnitzel heaven!
