    The Church Bar has improved a lot since I first went there last year. It's nice to see they've sorted out their plate size issue! Their parma has also improved a lot - no ring of burnt cheese like last time, the side salad was of the proper edible kind, and the chips were great. I chose the "Traditional Parmagiana" from the menu. My idea of "traditional" would include ham on the chicken, but this one doesn't have ham which was a bit of a let down. However there are other varieties you can sample. The chicken was also kind of dry. What is it with dry schnitzels these days? The last 3 parma's I've reviewed have been dry as a nun's nasty.

    Ricky T reckons:

    This had the potential to be a very good Parma, but it was let down by careless presentation of toppings, and the meat was obviously pre-cooked and reheated. The venue is quite new and I feel it will (hopefully) improve with time. I must say that serving size was great. It wasn't the huge steroidal sized chicket fillet that you commonly see these days. It was an adequately sized parma! That was refreshing. It didn't feel like a battle to finish it. The meal was controversially served on a rectangle plate... but rectangle/square plates are a theme at this bar. My missus' medium pizza was served on what seemed like a 1 sq. metre platter. The rectangle plate was actually quite functional if you like symmetry in your Parma presentation - greenery on one side, parma on a bed of chips on the other. Toppings: this is what stood out the most. The sloppy application of cheese while on the grill meant that the parma was bordered by burnt cheese wafer crusts. You know what I'm talking about, right? Criminal mistake, and easily avoidable. So in summary would I recommend The Church Bar for its parma? No.... But try it anyway, it's a nice relaxing little bar in bogantown with aspirations of trendyness. Worth a visit.
