Schnitzel around the globe
Since the last article made me hungry, here’s a little reminder: During my research on Austrian restaurants in Asia, I found this article about a place called Wallsé, located in the West Village part of New York. If you ever go there and order a Schnitzel, it will look like this:
And it will cost you 28 US Dollars. That’s roughly 22 €, or about 4-7 larger Schnitzels here in Vienna. Not to mention that no sane person would ever combine Schnitzel with cowberry sauce. If you search for this combination in Google, the only hit you get is a “Biker menu” offered by some roadside restaurant in Tyrolia – and with good reason. But I digress.
Wallsé also offers other typical Austrian food, like Spätzle, Palatschinken , Tafelspitz (Which is called Kavalierspitz there) or Almond Crusted Soft Shell Crab:
Yes, I remember, back when I was a child, I used to get an almond crusted soft shell crab every day after school from the almond crusted soft shell crab salesman at the corner. Oh those fine days of youth, when all we cared about was sunshine, laughter and our almond crusted soft shell crabs.
