According to its Twitter, the Schnitzel and Things truck was promising traditional wiener schnitzel this morning, but a Midtown Lunch commenter says they didnt have veal (just the usual chicken and pork), and wont have it till later in the week. Oh, well. While were talking breaded cutlets, heres the menu we snagged from Schnitzel Express, which recently replaced City Burger in midtown. N.B.: This is a glatt kosher operation (under the supervision of Vaad Harabbonim of Flatbush, if youre keeping score) so, in the Israeli style, they use breaded chicken instead of calf or pig meat. Also note this curious menu item: A masculine salad made with masculine lettuce.
