ABOUT Holy Schnitzel (Staten Island)
Holy Schnitzel Staten Island is unique in many ways. Not only is it one of the only meat restaurants in the area for the past eight years, it is a family friendly place with a very expansive menu and one of the only sandwich concept kosher eateries. Holy Schnitzel owner Ofeer Benaltaba simply wanted to bring good tasting kosher food to the market when he first opened the now franchised eatery. Some may call Holy Schnitzel a perfect blend of comfort food with a Mediterranean twist.

A favorite Mediterranean starter is the Sabich in a Pita. It consists of roasted eggplant, egg, hummus, and Israeli salad. Of course you cannot go wrong with some other starters such as the Dozen Wings in which you choose from a variety of flavors such as Honey BBQ, Sweet Chili, and Char Grilled. And if you want to add some spice to your meal while remaining healthy, you’ll want to try the Fire Salad- A mesclun mix with red & green peppers, jalapenos, roasted corn, tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, lime zest, and a cilantro lime dressing.

As per the sandwiches, The Tony Special, is a popular one with marinated grilled chicken, sauteed onions, peppers, garlic mayo, jalapeno mayo and spicy mayo. The Mediterranean flair remains consistent throughout the entire menu, as the Shimmishuka is a unique sandwich as well. Made up of three eggs in a special tomato sauce served in a pita or baguette. The ideal way to make the popular Shakshuka dish your lunch or dinner. The Shwanitzel Wrap is also a great option - a mix of shwarma, schnitzel and fries with ketchup and BBQ sauce. All of these menu items can be found in any of the Holy Schnitzel locations. Ofeer’s philosophy is “to make everything from the heart and to treat everyone as you would want to be treated”. Perhaps the key to success is that simple.

I came in for lunch and enjoyed the Cigar Platter. It was minced roasted beef with a tahini dipping sauce. The outer shell had this roasted cracker crunch and the inside had a light chew which balanced it out. It was a really great meal, would recommend. It's also a cozy place. They have just enough seats so it doesn't feel crowded but still small enough to have that "hole in the wall" type of feel to it. I also enjoyed the decor of the place. I'm a graphic designer by living so the first thing I usually notice is the colors of a room. It's absolutely worth checking out if you are in the area and want a good meal. Prices are about what is expected for a New York restaurant and the platters have pretty awesome serving sizes so you don't walk away feeling cheated. Keep in mind the Cigar Platter is an appetizer so that wouldn't be what I wouldn't be something you'd eat alone.

I've never left Holy Schnitzel less than satisfied, both in terms of being full of great food, and feeling like I got good 'bang for my buck'. A great addition to Staten Island, and an excellent stop for people travelling through...
