After having the regular parma last week there was only one chicken schnitzel meal left to have, and that was, as the menu puts so eloquently, the "Schnitzel - House made gravy and fresh lemon". Here's a picture.
Without the toppings they quality of the chicken really stands out. If it's good then the meal will be nice, if it's poor then it will be a horrible experience. There's no hiding here, it's schnitzel at its essence.
So how was it? Pretty nice, just like the other parma's at the International it was cooked well, with a tasty crumbing and far from small in size. I squeezed my lemon over the top of the chicken (and threw the watercress away). Chicken was dipped in the gravy as I went. Which probably wasn't the best idea as a) I had a couple of bites of chicken at the end without gravy and b) it made it easier for Mrs In-Parms-Way to steal chips and gravy from my plate. Would have been smarter to pour it over the chicken at the start.
As always though, the beer was delicious. Had a Noble Pilsener with the schnitzel that worked really well.
Thank you for the tasty meal International Hotel, see you next time.

ps. I'd also like to say a big YOLO to our lunch buddies! Haha.
