After seeing a show at the Hayes Theatre (Side Show, very enjoyable), my better half suggested we eat a schnitzel. Una’s or Maggie’s? I asked. Maggie’s was closer. A venerable institution and not on quite as busy a strip as Una’s, Maggie’s serves up hearty German fare: cabbage rolls, goulash, pork roast and dumplings. But the thing is, either at Una’s or Maggie’s, I can never go past the veal or chicken jager schnitzel.
It is a perfect thing: thin, crispy, meaty, and served with a creamy mushroom sauce, along with some perfectly done rosti potatoes and a light cabbage coleslaw on the side (which is a great contrast). In fact, I think the portions here may be a tiny bit smaller than Una’s, and that’s a good thing, since I’ve felt overstuffed at Una’s in the past.
Service is efficient and friendly; I was amused that all of them were Asian brothers last night.
