Karl Stefanovic LOSES it over popular inner city pub charging nearly $40 for a simple chicken schnitzel and chips: ‘Sydney has lost the plot’

  • Today Host slammed exorbitant price 
  • The meal was from Five Dock Bowling Club
  • ‘I’m really upset … that’s crazy’ 

Today host Karl Stefanovic slammed Sydney as ‘nuts’ after hearing a pub is charging almost $40 for a basic chicken schnitzel and chips.

Stefanovic was told the shocking news from a reporter at the Five Dock Bowling Club, a waterfront suburb in Sydney’s inner-west, on Tuesday morning.

‘That’s why Sydney has lost the plot. It’s not even good there… I’m really upset about the schnitty. How many bread crumbs?,’ he said.

‘That’s why we stayed home and make our own food, parmies, schnitties – $40, that’s crazy.’

Reporter Luscie McLead found the plain schnitzel from the pub costs a staggering $28.90.

A customer is forced to pay another $6.90 if they want a side of chips or $8.90 if they want a side salad.

Ms McLead said buying all the ingredients from a grocer to make the same dinner for a family cost almost the same as just one meal from the bowling club.

‘To put it into perspective I went to Coles, bought the ingredients, 56 bucks. Karl, you could make it home,’ she said.

Karl agreed, saying: ‘Just whack it in the air fryer and Bob’s your uncle.’

At an alternative venue just down the road from the bowling club, customers can find chicken schnitzels for just $24 – which includes two sides. 

Recent data from the Consumer Price Index found Aussies were paying 9.4 per cent more for food and non-alcoholic beverages in November 2022 when compared with the same time in 2021.

More businesses have been forced to raise their prices to keep up with growing costs driven by inflation and food shortages. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Five Dock Bowling Club for comment.
