Last month I was invited to The Skyroom, a rooftop venue near London Bridge, to try the Mumma Schnitzel chicken sandwich.
Mumma Schnitzel is a new street food trader, founded by Matthew Walsh and Hollie Scrancher. While travelling the world together, the couple came across an amazing chicken sandwich in Thailand, and this is where the inspiration came from. Back in the UK, and after over a year of fine-tuning and tasting, the Mumma’s Burger was born.
The ultimate original Mumma Schnitzel burger: hand pounded, free range British chicken schnitzel, butter lettuce and vine tomato served in a lightly toasted brioche bun, with a lick of Mumma’s signature mayo and sweet chilli sauce.
I had the chance to chat with Matt and Hollie at the event. They both have full time jobs and dedicate all their free time to their street food business. They talk about it with such passion and it is clear how much work and time they have invested in it.
The hard work has paid off, because the Mumma Schnitzel really is an amazing chicken sandwich! The chicken (free range, from organic butcher H G Walter) was crispy and tasty, with a delicate homemade mayonnaise. The homemade brioche bun was also perfectly baked.
The sandwich was complemented by delicious fries and seriously good homemade coleslaw, this as well developed after much tweaking and tasting!
You can find Mumma Schnitzel at The Skyroom, in collaboration with Platterform, on the first Friday of every month (4pm-10pm). Check the website to find out all Mumma’s movements.
