Schnitzel and Things

A while back, Gilt City had a promotion for Schnitzel and Things; they bought out the truck for a day of service and only Gilt City members could buy their schnitzel. For $5, you were able to choose between veal or chicken (and possibly a sausage combo) with sides – potatoes and sauerkraut (a pretty good deal, especially since it’s veal!). The truck, decked out in Gilt City balloons:


I ordered the veal schnitzel and brought it back to my desk to enjoy:


1. The color of the meat was extremely questionable – I mean, it looks like there’s mold on it! 2. The veal was pounded too thin and by the time it arrived at my desk, the breading was way too soggy. The potatoes were really good (laced with tons of garlic…you’re welcome, office mates), and the sauerkraut was also decent. For $5, you can’t really beat it, but the quality of the veal was a little questionable and the toughness was definitely not something I’d put my teeth through again. I read on twitter that people really enjoyed their veal sandwiches and sausage combos, so next time, I might be inclined to try that instead of their low quality veal.
