As of last summer, there were an estimated 40 to 50 gourmet food trucks roaming New York City—and Schnitzel & Things is considered one of the best. The truck, a recipient of the coveted “Vendy” Rookie of the Year award in 2009 and other accolades, serves Austrian schnitzel, or hand-pounded, panko-breaded veal and chicken cutlets, cod filets and eggplant. Bratwursts, Austrian potato salad, cucumber salad, as well as unconventional condiments, such as spicy sriracha mayo and chipotle sour cream, are among the “things” sold. Owner Oleg Voss, a Ukraine native who embarked on Schnitzel & Things when he lost his job as an investment banker in Vienna, Austria, during the 2008 financial crisis, opened a restaurant in midtown Manhattan in early 2011.
