Great schnitzel in Montreal

Does anyone have a favourite?

Also, does any cafe in town make a good chicken schnitzel sandwich?

      Thanks kpzoo - I searched for schnitzel but only found the old Alphenhaus thread! Chez Benny looks interesting (Chinese, Lebanese, and schnitzel?!)

        Chez Benny is a crazy-eclectic place!

        p.s. that thread probably didn't come up in your search because it was started over 1 year ago - I had to expand the search options to 5 years to find it.

          Try Bucarest on Decarie/Snowdown. Delicious schnitzel.

        2. re: unlaced

          Cafe Europa on Sherbrooke has a good and very generous schnitzle.

          Cafe Bano on Sherbooke West in NDG. Small place, very nice people.

          1. Ordered a great chicken shnitzel platter from Chez Benny (VSL) last night. $15.95 (tax in) gets you 3 well breaded, crispy, not greasy pieces of shnitzel with a load of ffs or rice, 3 choices of salads and hot pita (thicker Israeli-style pita with a well formed pocket). Just added a splash of lemon and the shnitzel was awesome - even delivered!

              omg they deliver?! THANK YOU for the tip!

              1. re: C70

                The VSL location delivers for a minimal charge & I think it depends on your location.

            2. I would suggest Restaurant Berlin on Fairmount, I enjoyed their schnitzel.
