Is This Adelaide’s Hardest Eating Challenge?

We all know that one person who cannot resist a food challenge. Well you’re going to want to let them know about this one, cause it’s a doozy.

Meet The Schnitzelmeister at The Bavarian.

It’s a six-stack chicken schnitzel tower, layered with Napoli sauce, ham and cheese, plus four sides (you get to choose from a selection of options), all piled onto a whopping platter.

And you have to eat it in an hour.

But you’re going to need to be hungry. Seriously, look at the size of that stack!

The Bavarian opened as part of Tea Tree Plaza’s refurbishment in late 2018. Owned by Rockpool Dining Group, the venue is well-known for its Bavarian fare, huge beer selection (including 17 on tap) and seriously good schnitzels.

So how does The Schnitzelmeister all work? You order up at the counter, and when they bring out your meal – aka the giant platter – they’ll ring a bell (yes, the whole restaurant will know you’re doing the challenge). Then they’ll keep an eye on you during the hour to make sure you’re not getting help from someone else at the table.

The Schnitzelmeister will set you back $80. But eat it all in an hour, and it’s free!

We gave the challenge a red hot go, and while it was delicious, we didn’t even come close to finishing. Let’s just say – stretchy pants are encouraged, meat-sweats are likely. (If you love a schnitty though and haven’t been to The Bavarian yet, we highly recommend).

If you’re still starving but perhaps less inclined to devour a day’s worth of food in one sitting (and don’t want a bell to announce the arrival of your meal), check out The Bavarian’s range of loaded schnitzels.

These are next-level schnitzels, topped with a range of creative flavour combos (and they’ve recently added four new flavours to the menu).

The Italian is for when you can’t choose between schnitty or a pizza. It comes topped with napoli sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, cherry tomatoes, olives and basil.

Or keeping with the Italian theme, The Meatball is like a schnitzel with spag bol served on top, complete with parmesan cheese.

The Texan has fried mozzarella, cheese, bacon, jalapeños, sweet barbecue sauce and ranch dressing.

Or if you want to feel like you’re eating a salad, The Caesar comes topped with cos lettuce, smoked bacon, parmesan cheese, Caesar dressing, pretzel croutons and a slow cooked egg.

If schnitties aren’t your thing, The Bavarian does also serve actual salads, plus a huge range of Bavarian classics.

The Bavarian is at Westfield Tea Tree Plaza, 976 North East Road, Modbury. You can see the full menu or make a booking here.
