Fo schnitzel my ‘nitzelwich

Schnitzel Express ( 1410 Broadway, enter on 39th between Broadway and 6th ave.) looks like a chain, but I don’t think it is (neither does the interwebsites). Maybe because it’s got pretty solid branding and image with little orange logos all over the place. It’s also got an assembly line behind some glass, really official looking. Anyhow, it’s all very formal.

Here’s their pitch: fried chicken is delicious; even better with delicious sauces. Okay, that’s how I describe it, I have no idea what their pitch is. It says “Glatt Kosher” where the pitch should be. Maybe it’s something like “Jews love chicken!”? Regardless, it seems like a winner, after all, let’s not be dividers: everyone loves fried chicken! Aside from the kosher-tax-inflated prices, it was very tasty. I tried the Spanish Schnitzel sandwich ($10) which is their lingo for chicken that’s pounded flat, breaded with spicy peppers, deep fried and put into baguette sandwich. I got mine with a side of spicy sauce, though it was more mayo-y than spicy. All together, the sandwich was delicious. The chicken wasn’t overpowering, wasn’t greasy and the other ingredients tasted pretty good (like sauteed onions and pickles) together.

My mind wasn’t blown, but I’d go back. If only the prices were a few bucks cheaper.

  4. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything.

    Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals or
    videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content
    is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Terrific blog!
