The schnitzels on offer range from more traditional styles to more inventive ones.
There’s the Mexican, a crumbed chicken breast topped with corn chips, spicy beef, beans, cheddar, tomato salsa, coriander and sour cream.
The Nashville is a Southern-fried chicken breast made with a Nashville spice rub and topped with cabbage slaw, dill cucumber, potato gems and chipotle aioli.
There’s also the Schweineschnitzel, a giant 300g pork schnitzel served with cabbage slaw, lemon and fries, and for the vegan diners there’s the Veggie, which is made from potato and mixed vegetables and served with salad and chips.
The very Bavarian-inspired Oktoberfest schnitzel is a chicken schnitty served with sauteed potatoes, wurstsalat, pickled cucumber and mustard.
Schnitzels at The Bavarian usually cost upwards of $23 but all 10 on the Schnitty Fest menu will be sold for $10 on Wednesdays during the festival.
