In this wintery weather a warming piece of schnitzel – that’s meat that’s been beaten, breacrumbed, and fried – might just beckon. Boopshi’s in Fitzrovia specialises in this Austrian dish, and serves schnitzels plain or with traditional toppings (such as duck egg or anchovies) and side dishes such as spätzle (a type of pastal-like egg noodle from the Alps). Desserts include kaiserschmarrn, a type of sweet pancake. If your whistle needs to be wetted after a hard day’s yodeling, there are also cocktails, wines and beers. The shared tables, austere interior and plate glass windows of this caff may not make it an ideal destination for a hot date, but for a proper Wiener Schnitzel (made with rosé veal), Boopshi’s takes some beating.

Love Boopshi's - have been a couple of times, and the schnitzel, spritz cocktails and kaiserschmarrn dessert are all always excellent. I don't understand why the place is always deserted?! More details and photos here on my blog: http://hyhoi.com/2014/04/boopshis-fitzrovia/

This is the food I was eating as a child! My only criticism....the Spaetzle was "soggy" and sticky which is very much what it ain't supposed to be. But the Wiener Schnitzel...my mouth is watering just from the memory!!!
One of the best new restaurants to hit the London food scene!! Amazing food, really cool drinks and great atmosphere, lets not forget that they do the best schnitzel and strudel in London. Simply brilliant!
If you are looking for the best authentic Schnitzel (breaded escalope) this side of Austria I have found it at Boopshi’s. The coating’ bubbles’ off the meat (choice of veal, chicken or pork) just as it should. The sauerkraut and bratwurst with sweet mustard, which I tasted from a friend’s meal, was equally delicious. There is a downstairs bar for those who prefer to snack and drink and lots of other Viennese goodies. If you have waited this long for real Schnitzel to arrive in London your wait is over.
