Our First Look at Schnitzel & Things’ Expanded Storefront Menu
Yesterday, Schnitzel & Things finally became a bonafide brick-and-mortar (3rd btw 45th+46th), and the line was out the door. The new space allows for a larger menu, a much faster line, and cookies! Though I wasn’t there as early as the third customer, Donny, I did make it over before the lunch rush to get my schnitz on.
The larger menu includes all the regular items available on the truck plus some of the more popular specials: veal, eggplant, and grilled ginger chicken. And now, if you so choose, you can get a schnitzel salad ($7.99) that includes any one schnitzel and four vegetable toppings. (Our kind of salad!) Other new items include sweet potato fries, and cranberry compote as a condiment. All of the prices are within a 50¢ range of their price on the truck.
With the truck staying in for the day, Oleg was manning the counter. Though I could have easily gotten all crazy and gone for the eggplant schnitzel or the schnitzel burger, I’ve been craving straight up breaded chicken lately. Add in the fact that their platters are massive and often cause me to fall asleep at my desk, I decided to go with a nice sandwich on Ciabatta ($8.50).
And don’t forget to pick up a sweet treat care of the Treats Truck.
Ah, Schnitz! Fried thin goodness. If you’ve had schnitzel from the truck, you know exactly what to expect. A good number of my co-workers did make their way over, many of whom had never visited the truck. Almost all liked it, with the one complaint being that it’s a tad on the salty side. (No complaints here though.)
They will be offering delivery next week, with a $15 minimum. Prefer your schnitz to be mobile? The truck is back today, and as always you can follow it on their Twitter @schnitznthings, or on the ML Twitter Tracker.
