Israelis love their schnitzel – they may well love it more than its German inventors, in all honesty – a love attested to by schnitzel's appearance on the menus of every blue collar or (somewhat paradoxically) Middle Eastern restaurant in the country.
But there was never a restaurant devoted solely to the glorification of pounded, breaded chicken product...until Shnitsi was built at the bottom of the Yoel Salomon pedestrian mall.
Easily distinguished by its mysterious statue of a heavily caricatured, smirking man holding up a menu outside, and its bright orange color scheme, Shnitsi is all about the many potential permutations of chicken.
Young Israelis and young American yeshiva students flock to it during the night for multiple variations of schnitzel, chicken strips, chicken fingers, chicken nuggets, chicken sandwiches and other choices from a Forrest Gump-esque lineup of poultry. No fried chicken, though – that never really caught on in Israel. Meals come with fries, of course.
