Wholly Schnit renowned for its cult-status food truck serving up their famed handmade schnitzels, is set to captivate Sydney’s lunch enthusiasts with an exciting six week pop-up store launching this week at the vibrant 259 George Street food precinct.

"Back in 2012 my wife was pregnant with our fourth child and her craving was late night schnitzels. We noticed that all the places that served good schnitzels would close at 9pm and we couldn’t find a decent schnitzel anywhere after 9pm, so I started making them for her. It turns out that I had quite a talent for making schnitzel.

During this time the Sydney City Council started their Sydney Food Truck program and from this idea our family launched Wholly Schnit in May 2016" explains John O’Kane, Owner and Founder of Wholly Schnit.

Since its inception in 2016, Wholly Schnit has earned a devoted following, churning out golden succulent schnitzels on the streets of Sydney. The brand new pop-up is poised to offer a selection of its best selling schnitzels and burgers.

Wholly Schnit founder John O’Kane says the activation is an exciting opportunity to showcase their
signature menu in Sydney’s bustling CBD.

“Launching in the vibrant 259 George Street precinct is an exciting opportunity to bring our menu to a larger audience across the six week pop-up and we can’t wait to showcase what we do best.”

Diners can indulge in some of Wholly Schnit’s well-loved offerings, including the Jaeger schnitzel. This delicious creation features coleslaw, shoestring fries, and the famous housemade mushroom sauce, often affectionately dubbed ‘crack sauce’ for its addictive flavour.

Menu highlights include: The Poutine layered with shoestring fries, mozzarella cheese and gravy, Schnack Pack topped with fries, mozzarella and your choice of three sauces, and the OG Burger with chicken schnitzel, coleslaw, tasty cheese, chipotle sauce and mayo on a soft milk bun.

The Wholly Schnit pop-up marks the start of a series of exciting pop-up food concepts slated for the 259 George Street food precinct in the coming months - so watch this space.
