|Universal Chicken Parmigiana – $14|
This may not be the best parma ever, but it’s certainly one of the biggest. And for a little over $10, there’s really nothing to complain about. Although the cheese doesn’t cover the entire chicken schnitzel, and it was a little dry. The chips were amazing, not super crunchy by any means, but the combination of the light seasoning on the outside and the fluffy centre was delicious, I would polish them off if the parma wasn’t so gigantic.
|Chicken and Avocado (Spaghetti) w/ Lemonade – $12|
Their lunch menu was pretty cheap so we ordered a pasta dish off that too. This was quite bland however, and it’s not what I expected at all. I thought the chicken and avocado will be cut into slices and tossed through the pasta, oh well. Ample amount of salt and pepper was needed, as the sauce lacked flavour.
|we tried LOL|
Universal can be a bit of a hit and miss, and the service can be pretty atrocious at times. But $14 parma just isn’t something I’m willing to part with just yet, so yeh, this is a restaurant I will return to when I’m extremely hungry but only have a $20 note on me.
How to get there:
Universal is located on Lygon Street, hop on any tram heading out of the city from Flinders Street or Melbourne Central and get off at Lincoln Square, it’s a short 5 minutes walk from the tram stop.
