The Saracens - Quick Chop!

The Saracens - 82 Carrington St, Adelaide

Eager for a fuss free Saturday lunch and with Entertainment Book in hand, boyfriend and I decided to give The Saracens a go. Walking into the pub you are met with a modern dining area and a view into the cute beer garden through glass doors. Despite all the interesting options on the menu, we both decided to get the beef schnitzel with mushroom gravy and vegetables ($2 extra).

The meat of the beef schnitzel was tender and the crumb was crisp. A nice touch was how the crumb was heavily herbed. Mushroom gravy tasted just like normal gravy and was missing any mushroom flavours. I don't think mushrooms floating in gravy counts as mushroom gravy - you want the gravy to taste a bit like mushrooms. Also a bit of inconsistency with the vegetables - my boyfriends plate had snow peas while mine did not. A trivial thing but I really like snow peas (I ate boyfriend's).

The Saracens serves food a little better than average in a nice setting. Jess gives The Saracens 12.5/20 chops on the Chopping Board.

Food: 6/10
