Chicken Schnitzel at The Woden Tradies

A couple of work mates and I went to The Woden Tradies today for chicken schnitzel.

The Tradies at Woden isn’t far from work so it was a pleasant walk in a relatively warm and mildly humid day in Canberra. As a member I was eligible for a discount and I could share that discount with my mates. Ordinarily a standard schnitty costs $18 and a legendary schnitty costs $20. Today a schnitty with any sauce, mash or chips and salad or vegetables cost all of $12.

One of my mates was explaining how one of his daughters has a friend who has hollandaise sauce with her schnitty and she will order two serves of hollandaise sauce so she can coat everything including chips (fries for north American readers and French fries I assume for readers from France ) with it. When I suggested I’d have hollandaise sauce there was laughter and comments about I wouldn’t…


 

Yes, I did

The Chicken Schnitzel at The Woden Tradies is pretty good. It’s a generous portion. The crumb coating is complete and not too thick. The mashed potato I think was powdered potato, its consistency was that of thick clag or perkins paste. The vegetables were on the over cooked side. I’m guessing the Hollandaise sauce wasn’t made in the kitchen. That said, it was tasty and satisfying and a great lunch when enjoying laughs and stories with work mates. 


I was pretty full after lunch so I had a salad for tea tonight

  1. I knew I liked Aussies for a reason (and it wasn’t cricket) It is because you call chips, chips!

    1. They will always be chips to me. Even if somehow the English start saying fish ‘n’ fries, it’ll always be fish ‘n’ chips. Chips are the best.
