    BIGD reckons:

    firstly, this is an old review - I'm trying to catch up on all my past parmas I have photos of. with that said, this parma is probably not available now as it was actually a XMAS TURKEY PARMA, not chicken.
    I rate this parma 100% as it was amazing!! the mixture of cranberry sauce, melted cheese and gravy made me jizz my pants!
    what was more satisfying was the size of this parma, it left me fulfilled and stoked with what I had just eaten!
    this venue gets mixed reviews, but you have to give them props for seperating chips from the parma etc, because so far no where else I have been does this!
    always super friendly staff, and helpfull in terms of recommending a good beer while you smash down a rad parma!

    so I return to the elsternwick hotel for another tuesday night special before band rehearsal!
    tonight I decided on the 'aussie' parma, having no idea what to expect once again I was given a free roll to nom on whilst waiting, which once again was such a short wait!!!
    this place is amazing!!!! the aussie parma ruled!!! I can't get over how much the $12 parmas here OWN the ones I have paid double for!
    the chicken once again tasted amazing, this was my first 'aussie' topping and it tasted great!!!! - next on my list here is the mexican!

    parma at chadman's!
    this "slow" cooked parma had ALOT of thought behind it, when I say slow cooked - this parma was put together with alot of TLC.
    visually this parma looked the goods, it was of perfect size and cheese was melted golden to perfection. upon first cut I was impressed with this hand crumbed masterpiece which included diced bacon in the topping rather than the traditional ham (ham is something that I'm not a massive fan of so dont mind if it's missing) and a sauce blend! (as the chef put it)
    chips were a safe choice and always a winner and a perfect amount to fill BIG D's stomach.
    I must say the salad seemed to be lacking.... the effort was there, but I think chadman let himself down with the few leaves I received?
    I have "+1" for the free bizza, great company and well thought out / constructed parma, best parma on the peninsula!
