Special World of Schnitzel! 5:00PM – 7:00PM

  • What is a schnitzel?

While its roots are varied, folklore has its roots with the Romans. Their legions always on the move would necessitate eating off the land. To offer something more palatable, they would take game or meat, hand-cut it (“Schnitt” in Schnitzel means to cut) pound to thin and soften, immerse it in breadcrumbs and place it on a skillet. In other words, an authentic breaded cutlet (the Hohmeyer family from Germany add on a secret ingredient generations protected!). Throughout Europe there are many different versions of Schnitzel with northern Germany being more classic pork schnitzel, southern Germany adding sauces to make Jager Schnitzel and Austria with Weiner Schnitzel. So now you know, Weiner Schnitzel is not a hot dog!).
