South Bank’s Munich Brauhaus has launched a new range of Loaded Schnitzels as well as a six-stack schnitzel tower for the super hungry.

Each golden-crumbed chicken schnitzel is generously smothered, covered and loaded with toppings and sauces, creating quirky fusions and flavour combinations, with the Italian bursting with Mediterranean flavours of Napoli sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, cherry tomatoes, olives and basil.

Have both schnitty and salad with The Caesar, which is piled with cos lettuce, smoked bacon, parmesan, Caesar dressing, pretzel croutons and a slow-cooked egg. The Meatball ticks both Italian and Bavarian boxes, boasting spaghetti, house-made meatballs in Napoli sauce, parmesan and basil. The Texan is supersized with fries, mozzarella, smoked bacon, jalapeños, sweet barbecue sauce and creamy ranch dressing. The last of these five great schnitzels is The Mexican, which is back by popular demand, and features corn chips, chilli con carne, Jack cheese, fresh-pounded guacamole and sour cream.

Schnitzel stardom awaits those who can take on The Schnitzelmeister – a one kilogram, six-stack, chicken schnitzel tower topped with Napoli sauce, ham and cheese and served with four side dishes. Finish The Schnitzelmeister (including all side dishes) in under one hour and receive it for free.

To celebrate the latest schnitzel shenanigans, a prize of $2000 is up for grabs at each Bavarian restaurant. To enter, guests must purchase a Loaded Schnitzel and either a 500mL or one litre stein of beer. Winners will be drawn on Sunday, 31 March.
