down in the basement is the biggest schnitzel
The extensive menu doesn't just stick to schnitzels. There is also a selection of starters, burgers, seafood dishes including fish and chips, a seafood platter and a seafood casserole, huge slabs of steaks and chicken................. and then we come to the extensive schnitzel menu. With a choose of about 15 toppings plus you can choose chicken pork or lamb schnitzel. This just makes the decision even more difficult.
Thankfully we also opt to share. We saw the size of the plates and some diners had their own. There was no way I was going to cope with that. We decide on the Marinara Chicken Schnitzel which is topped with garlic prawns and crumbed calamari.
We sit back and watch peoples reactions as their schnitzels are served. Comparing toppings and options for future visits. I'm telling you these plates are huge and I can't help smiling in anticipation of a good schnitty. Help yourself to cutlery, condiments and napkins at the servery in the middle of the restaurant.
When our plate arrived at the table my jaw dropped to the floor, my reaction was the same as everybody else that I had been watching! This was absolutely ridiculously huge. I'm in awe! I would worship this schnitzel. I also realise that there is no way anyone would be capable of eating it solo (in one sitting) - kudos if they can - is there a wall of honour? a free t-shirt?
Each serving of chicken schnitzel has 1 kilo of chicken breast which equates to approximately 5-6 schnitzels on the plate (or should I say platter). Topped with a handful of crumbed calamari and 6 buttery garlic prawns.
C R A Z Y !
For size comparison here I am holding the platter. Three times bigger than my head! LOL
schnitty bigger than my head
For $25 this is a very generous serve and a fantastic meal. Add a salad and it could easily feed a family or a group (or just a very hungry couple or ONE big eater! hahahaha).
Goni's is also licenced with a good selection of wines and beers and if you can manage it after those platters a few dessert options too.
