    I can't believe the Exchange has not been mentioned by now. Chicken is extremely moist and the topping is awesome. Chips are sometimes good and some times just alright. Salad dressing is good but I personally don't like the "fancy" lettuce. Venue is great on a summers day and the beer is cold. Not the cheapest venue but by far the best parma I have had to date. Shout out to the Mitre tavern in Melb. CBD also which is a close second with the same quality but nnot qute as large as the Exchange.

    An unexpected lunch at the Grand found an absolute gem of a Parma. I'd rate this parma easily in my top three experiences. A tasty piece of chicken cooked just right with great sauce along with the cheese and ham being cooked just right. Chips and salad were great too. The list of drinks is also substantial for those that prefer something other than a cold beer. Don't drive past this venue if you are looking for a great Parma.

    A visit to the Snowline has been a long time in the making. A four hr drive had me hanging for this pub's reputation to prove true. What can I say...........A great Parma. The size of the chicken was not huge, but was moist (ish) and thick. The crumb/coating needed to be cooked harder/longer for me as it was a little doughy. Sauce tasted awesome, but was not warm which was a letdown. Salad was a so so but the small handful of chips were seriously the best known to mankind. Overall a great experience, but not worthy of the #1. I know of at least 3 other venues in Melb. with a better Parma. Everybody should go to the Snowline when they get a chance. Hopefully just a bad day for the #1 on parma.com.au. minus point for bad execution of a good set of ingredients
