I love trying new food and new restaurants. My other passions are Origami and Pokémon

As its name implies, Schnithouse on Rundle Street is a great place to enjoy a wide variety of schnitzels. When ordering their schnitzels, you can choose from your choice of chicken, beef, pork, fish or vegetarian accompanied with fries and salad topped with your choice of sauce or a selection of gourmet toppings.

Their Vegetarian Schnitzel is quite unique, featuring mushrooms and mashed sweet potato in between two crumbed pieces of eggplant. The earthy taste of the mushrooms is a good complement to the eggplant and sweet potato. The fries were fried to golden brown with fluffy interiors and while the refreshing taste of the salad balanced out the schnitzel well, we thought it could use with a bit of dressing to make it more delectable. The Roast Garlic and Herb Gravy topping we chose was not too creamy and had a subtle garlicy taste.

The Pork Schnitzel had a slightly sweet taste with the crisp coating contrasting well with the perfectly cooked flesh. We chose to have it served with Enema Sauce, a chilli sauce made with habanero chilli, inferno chilli, pepper and lime. This sauce is perfect for lovers of spicy food. It has a potent spicy taste with a hint of tartness.

In addition to their schnitzels, Schnithouse also offers a variety of non-schnitzel dishes. Their Tommy's Giant 12 inch Bourbon Hot Dog is generous enough to be shared with a friend. The smoky taste of the Kransky sausage, bacon and caramelised onion partnered well with the crusty cheese and mustard mayonnaise. This dish comes with a serving of waffle chips that is quite similar in flavour to the Hash Tags offered at 127 Days.

Great for a snack or as accompaniment to their main dishes, their Onion Rings had the crisp texture and slightly sweet taste that we expected from onion rings. It comes with a serving of aioli that the onion rings can be dipped in to give it more flavour.

Ambience of the restaurant was somewhat similar to a pub with a good amount of seating. We think the tables could be placed further apart as customers were seen navigating their ways around the seats. Parking space is available on the street where the restaurant is located with some undercover carparks offering the option of off-street parking.

Very creative names for their Menu, Jonathan - I personally would worry about the "Enema" sauce - lucky for me I'm not a 'hot, spicy' sort of person!
