    Tuesday at the Elwood Lounge is Parma night! I was quite happy with mine. Although there are a few points that I need to make: As someone that's cooked in commercial kitchens before, I had a sneaking suspicion that the breasts are bought already pre crumbed and possibly even frozen, then either thawed out, or just thrown in the deep fryer to cook off. Because of this, and I could be wrong, but I've had to take a point off. Although mind you, it still was a very nicely crumbed and cooked piece of chicken breast. The topping didn't cover the entire parma, although this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes I think it's nice to have some crispy schnitzel poking out for a bit of variety. The salad and chips were both good quality. And I ended up eating the whole thing. My plate was clean and I was satisfied. Though still, I even felt the urge to help my friend finish hers. All in all a good all round parma for $10. www.eat4cheap.com.au

    The phrase 'you get what you pay for' is so true when it comes to this $5 parmie.. Not bad, but not good either.. for 5 bucks though, you can't really go wrong if that's all you've got. No salad, and the chips where a bit on the pathetic side. The cheese was a bit burnt from melting off onto the oven tray and the parma itself looked like it was cut in half from one of their usual parmas.. Still, it does have some redeeming qualities.. The nap sauce was very nice and fresh, and reminded me of a tasty tomato concasse that I used to cook with at the old Keg & Swan restaurant on Albert Park lake once upon a time. I've also given the parma an extra point for the mere fact that it's only $5!! So all in all, not bad, not good, it's just a five dollar parma. Perfect for poor starving students and bums on the street who've acquired some dollar coins and need a change from half eaten, bacteria infested sandwiches.. http://www.eat4cheap.com.au
