I have found the perfect way to prove yourself this weekend if you are looking for a bit of fun and a whole lot of food. The Austrian Schnitzelhaus located in Erina and in Gladesville is the perfect weekend challenge for all food lovers with a big appetite.
The Schnitzel challenge involves 1kg of chicken Schnitzel with chips and sauce of your choice, 1 litre of Erdinger Weissbier beer for $55. The champion Schnitzel eater holds the record for a mere 15 mins!!! Finish it all and you could score yourself a free desert (but I doubt you will have room for it), a t-shirt, a schnapps and of course your picture of the internet and the champions wall of fame…so bring it on! My partner was very proud that he successfully completed the challenge but it was a struggle and he is a huge eater! He just finished within the 1 hour so it’s a lot harder than it actually looks.
* The challenge is to be completed in 1 hour.
* All the food on the plate, except garnish is to be eaten
* NO sharing with anyone !!!!!!!
* If you throw up…. you’re out of the contest .
* Finish the beer
Make a mess in the bathrooms – CLEAN it up or you will be charged $ 50.00 cleaning fee.
Spectators- will be charged $ 15.00 to sit and watch at the table if they do not eat and drink.
But if you are not in the mood for stuffing yourself silly there are normal sized chicken schnitzels to satisfy your needs but, even these ones are quite big portions to make sure you go hungry.
I tried the schnitzel with a fresh tomato sauce, pineapple drizzled with melted cheese with an extremely generous serving of fresh veggies and crinkle cut chips.
Give it a go and challenge yourself at the Austrian Schnitzelhaus.
