I am from Brooklyn, i don’t live there anymore, but I visited for Yom tov, and I never heard of Shnitzi.
WHat do theye sell?November 1, 2010 1:04 pm at 1:04 pm #706938
Poster et all, I honestly can’t believe that you haven’t heard of Shnitzi. You haven’t enjoyed the privilege of standing in line and waiting for your shnitzi? Ahhh but the wait is worth it. The service really is good and the sandwiches excellent, as is the french fries.November 1, 2010 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm #706939OfcourseMember
I hear from my kids that there are varieties of shnitzel at Shnitzi. (No one in the family has been there yet). Can anyone name the varieties in shnitzel and varieties in french fries and offer comments, please.November 1, 2010 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm #706940
They have a website.November 1, 2010 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #706941
Basically they take chicken breast cutlet and grill it. Then they add your choices of various veggie salad and your choices of sauce, they have several different sauces. its all put into a baguette, choice of regular or whole wheat. very good and very fresh since they take raw and grill it immedaitely for you. The french fries are either regular or the shnitzi fries which are seasoned and really good. You can also order all this in a salad bowl.November 1, 2010 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #706942A23Participant

“Basically they take chicken breast cutlet and grill it”
Nooooooo. That is if you get Grilled Chicken. If you get Schnitzel they have different coatings that are flavored differently and they drop it into the deep fat fryer (I suspect it is already par cooked in advance, or else they wouldnt be able to crank it out that fast)November 1, 2010 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #706944
“Deep fat fryer”
Can you get any more graphic?! lolNovember 1, 2010 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm #706945

Technically but most people call them deep fryers. They leave out the fat part lol.November 2, 2010 4:04 am at 4:04 am #706949OfcourseMember
re: The french fries are either regular or the shnitzi fries which are seasoned and really good.
Just tasted both french fries. In my opinion, the regular are typical and nothing spesh!!! The round ones were ok/good, but not outrageous.November 2, 2010 1:00 pm at 1:00 pm #706950
Everyone makes a big deal about the Schnitzi fries, I’m not a fan, For good home fries similar to those try Burgers Bar.

What? How much cholent constitutes achila gassah?November 4, 2010 2:36 am at 2:36 am #706956
holy brother, Shcnitzel is chicken. I don’t see why it should be anything else but Sheakol.
And dunno, you are correct.November 4, 2010 10:45 am at 10:45 am #706957minyan galMember
Actually authentic schnitzel is made from veal. The real name for shnitzel is vienerschnitzel. Nowadays it is often made from chicken, veal or (not in our circles) pork.November 4, 2010 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #706958
A brocho is said according to the main ingredient of the cooked dish. Shnitzels, although covered with bread crumbs, are a shehakol because the main ingredient is chicken. However generally at Shnitzis this is a moot point since you’re eating it in a bona fide motzi roll.November 5, 2010 1:22 am at 1:22 am #706959
popa, your funny! Did you say pizza?November 5, 2010 2:14 am at 2:14 am #706962

Schnitzel: A Crumby Situation
Whenever you have two foods that combine to make one dish, the bracha made on the dish will be the bracha of the ikur (primary) food as opposed to the tofel (subordinate) food. However, where a mezonos product (one of the five grains) is the tofel in a dish, the mezonos food will automatically be treated as the ikur so long as it is enhancing the taste of the ikur in the dish.
There is a dispute amongst the poskim as to the proper bracha on breaded fish and schnitzel (breaded chicken). R’ Bodner, in his sefer on Hilchos Brachos, writes that he heard from R’ Elyashiv that the proper bracha is mezonos. He bases his psak on the fact that the tofel consists of one of the five grains and is used to enhance the taste of these dishes. However, R’ Bodner writes further, that he saw in a sefer in the name of R’ Moshe Feinstein that the proper bracha on these dishes is shehakol and not mezonos. R’ Moshe bases his psak on the fact that the breadcrumbs are such an insignificant tofel that in such an instance the bracha will follow the ikur, which would then be a shehakol eventhough the tofel consists of one of the five grains.
The Sefer Pischei Halacha states, that most poskim pasken that the proper bracha on the above mentioned dishes is a mezonos. However, he notes, that if one wants to remove himself from controversy, he should make a mezonos on the crumbs of that dish and a shehakol on a different dish that certainly requires a shehakol.
