Some Schnitzel With That Butter Chicken?

Here’s something you don’t see every day: Indian and German food under one roof.

But when it’s Parmajit’s Kitchen, in Revelstoke, B.C., it makes sense to see schnitzel alongside beef vindaloo. That’s because owner/chef Goldie Sanghera combines an Indian heritage with classical training in the kitchens of Austria.

On this occasion, we’re going for a big feed of Indian takeout to satiate our hunger pangs after a tough, week-long backpack in nearby mountain wilderness. So we order cauliflower and potato curry, saag paneer, spicy beef keema and some chicken korma, along with a whack of naan and rice. It all goes down splendidly, and rather silently, with a few bottles of local Mt. Begbie Brewing Co. Tall Timber ale and Nasty Habit IPA.

Parmajit’s is known affectionately by loyal locals as Pam’s, in honour of Goldie’s mother, who still makes kitchen appearances. It’s a small downtown joint, with customers also hunched over plates of Thai classics like pad thai and coconut curry.

As we heft our takeout bags, a guy lifts his head long enough to declare: “Best schnitzel in the west.” Next time.

    I’ve been to that restaurant! I was so astonished I took a pic of the menu, but I’ve since given that phone away, and can’t share it here. I was delighted to find the Indian meals were delicious! Well done Goldie!
