    About Time for a Chinese

The Biggest Schnitzel Ever

Yes I ate the biggest Schnitzel period. The place is Louis, an Austrian restaurant, it was a journey as I was staying in Mitte and we are talking completely East Berlin in Neukolln in the homonymous borough. It was my last day in the German capital and after a lot of thinking I decided to go, “Pana Lonely” recommendation and the pizza one was pretty good so that gave me the extra courage.

The Place

The only table when I arrived

Got to the place, it was almost empty, a couple tables just finishing, so I was the last costumer of the night, I ordered a pretty good Austrian beer, and asked for my pork schnitzel, yes it was pork not veal for the purists, and it was the Louis “Small” Schnitzel, believe me there is nothing small on that patty.

Austrian Beer

It is huge period. Taste good, I like it, and it was a lot, for a moment I thought the Schnitzel was going to win but no one mess with me. So I gorge it ‘till death.


I consider is worth the trip, good beer, relax restaurant, nothing fancy, and a lot of meat, easily can be share and both will be happy after the meal, and not expensive at all. If you’re a purists that only eats tiny thin little veal schnitzels please don’t go, don’t ruin the place for the rest of us that doesn’t care as much in this case, I do respect your integrity but I’m for the obscenity of the size in this situation.

That's what I call a generous portion

This huge situation reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Soup”.

Bania: Hey Jerry.
Jerry: Hey Kenny.
Jerry: Elaine, George.
Elaine: Hi.
George: Hi.
Bania: Hi.
Jerry: How's it going?
Bania: Great. I've been working out. Went from a size 40 to a 42.
Jerry: No kidding.
Bania: Yeah, I’m huge. Well, I’ll leave you guys alone.
Jerry: All right.
Elaine: O.K. Thanks.
Bania: Oh. Jerry, you know what just hit me? I was thinking, what size suit are you?
Jerry: Ahh, I’m a 40. Why?
Bania: I just got a brand new Armani suit doesn't fit me anymore. You want it?
Jerry: Well I don't know if I...
Bania: Oh come on. Why should it just sit in the closet?
Elaine: An Armani suit?
George: Take the suit.
Jerry: Well, ok, I guess.
Bania: You gonna be home later?
Jerry: Yeah.
Bania: I’ll drop it off.
George: Heh heh heh hey, new suit.
Jerry: Yeah, yeah, lucky me.
