Chicken schnitzel with gravy and mash $7
I've been here many times before for their chicken schnitzel, cheap as it is, it is indisputably delicious regardless of the cheap fare. On a good day, the slab of crumbed chook can take up most of your plate but this time it was modestly sized (but heart-shaped!). The side of potato is small-ish but in all it is undoubtably filling, however I do wish there was more gravy. There is a choice of mushroom, pepper Diane sauce or gravy and chips or mash.
Across the road on Broadway, there is a bright yellow shop of happiness known as Happy Lemon. I've heard legends of their questionable-sounding concoction of green tea with cheese and rock salt, so being the fearless warrior that I am, I braced my tastebuds and headed in.
Green tea with cheese and rock salt $4.20 (regular)
First off I'll have to know I am morally opposed to the desegregation of sweet and salty flavours and yes, I have dipped fries in soft serves and no, I did not like it. So with the utmost caution I lifted the lid of my Happy Lemon happy cup to slurp some of the frothy cheese and as Grab Your Fork described it, it tasted like "aerated cheesecake tinged with salt". It was extremely odd, yet not an unpleasant combination of sweet, creamy and salty flavours. I didn't immediately fall in love but by the end I was converted, and attempting to lick the remnants of cheese off the edges of the cup. Further down the drink, the strong taste of green tea drowned out most of the mild salty, cheesy flavours, however the sweetness was rather refreshing.
