Holy Schnitzel

Hours:MONDAY11:00AM to 11:00PM
Perfect For:Walk-Ins

Holy Schnitzel is a Kosher Israeli fast food restaurant in Aventura that got its start in New York, where it has a pretty strong following. We weren’t terribly impressed with the schnitzel sandwiches, which are rather dry and flavorless. However, their cholent is the best type of comfort food, especially on a cool night. This Thursday-only special is loaded with slow-braised beef, barley, root vegetables, and Kosher sausage. It’s subtly spiced while still being addictively flavorful. It’s also one of the most affordable things on the menu. We love this dish so much we’re thinking of creating a recurring calendar reminder to go get cholent at Holy Schnitzel every Thursday.
