My husband and I went in for lunch specifically for the chicken parmagiana. We had been reminiscing about a trip to Melbourne and the wonderful, hearty chicken parma that was featured in so many of the Italian restaurants there, a quick online search showed that the Victoria Street Bistro offered chicken parma, and a parking spot opened up directly in front of the restaurant. It was fate!
The menu describes the chicken parma as: "parmesan and panko crumbed chicken, prosciutto, fresh tomato sauce, crisp baby cos hearts ". Imagine our surprise to discover that this is a salad! The chicken is crumbed, fried, sliced, and set on a bed of lettuce. There is a tablespoon of tomato sauce--no exaggeration--a couple of transparently thin slivers of parmesan and prosciutto, and then salad dressing over the lot.
To be fair, the chicken strips were nicely done--but this was NOT chicken parma. If I had wanted a witty deconstruction of chicken parma I would have ordered that, and I certainly wouldn't have eaten at the VSB if I had known that they don't actually serve the dishes that are listed on the menu.
