Chicken cutlet sandwich

Hello, Chowhounders.

A (hopefully) simple query: Where in Montreal might I find a decent chicken cutlet sandwich?

Thank you for your help.

    Good news!
    I just had lunch at a new Iranian resto on Sherbrooke W (6107), sat outside, and had a GREAT chicken shnitzl sandwich....tasty/good value....also enjoyed bean soup, eggplant dish (#3) and draft German beer. Good people, and great value

      Are you talking about Restaurant Bratwurst or is there some more recent German-Iranian restaurant on Sherbrooke West?

        Is this the old German Bratwurst location?
        I have a friend who says they have a killer tongue sandwich. He also says they have a fried brain sandwich that really takes him back to Iran.
        I have yet to try.

        The smoked meat/sandwich stall at the train station near Place Ville-Marie (Gare centrale?) has them. It was my preferred option when going to the train station for lunch while working nearby.

          Where I have been going for the last 20 years is Slovenia on Clark, a good butcher on one side and a small stand up restaurant on the other.Also note great sausage sandwiches that go down well with a Cotts Black Cherry.Enjoy

            Chez Benny on Queen Mary or on St. Louis in St. Laurent does a very decent chicken shnitzel. They fry up a generous portion that you can have on baguette, in pita, in laffa or just shnitzel on a plate and you can dress your plate or sandwich with a variety of toppings, including first rate hummus, tehina, eggplant, babaganouj, salad, etc. Couple that with their excellent fries and you will be very happy. Also - the chicken is kosher. Their website with pictures: http://bennysmtl.tripod.com/menu.htm

                What I mean is a New York deli-style chicken cutlet sandwich, with breaded and fried chicken. Kind of like this: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3406/3...

                  I haven't seen this too much in Montreal, but the chicken schnitzel cutlets they sell at the takeout counter at Delly Boys in Cote-St-Luc are quite good and not too expensive, and I sometimes pick up some to make a sandwich with.

                    yes, Cavallaro can make that for you. they have roasted peppers for garnish, as well as lettuce, tomato & cheese, and a good selection of rolls.

                    Cavallaro is decent, but not anything above that......best time to visit there is during world cup, Euro cup soccer matches....
