Delicious Schnitz at the Smorg

Grumpy Russian Schnitz Sandwich
It’s been far too long since I’ve had schnitzel. The last time I can remember getting my schnitz fix was last summer when Siobhan was testing the Schnitzel & Things recipe for our book, New York á La Cart: Recipes and Stories from the Big Apple's Best Food Trucks. Well, a year is waayyyy too long to go without some schnitz action and I was more than happy to break my fast at the Smorg with the Grumpy Russian…

This pork schnitzel sandwich from the aptly named , Schnitz booth comes with gorgonzola spread, Schnitz greens and pickled cherries. Hello, gorgonzola and perfectly fried pork cutlet? Why has no one thought of this magnificent cheese/fried pork combo before?! I love getting a bite to eat at the Smorgasburg, but if you have a big appetite, it can easily get pricey. The Grumpy Russian is a good sized sandwich and a satisfying portion. At $9, it among the bang for your buck values and when we hit the booth at midday there wasn’t a huge line. I’m definitely looking forward to a return trip to try more of their schnitz!
