My Parmigiana Richter Scale

My Parmigiana Richter Scale measures the magnitude of mouth-watering goodness of the Chicken Parmigianas I’ve eaten as we travelled around Australia.  Now that our travels have concluded, I continue to write reviews when I encounter a ‘good’ parmie somewhere.

The rating given is my own opinion based wholly and solely on what I was served on the day we dined at the identified establishment.  I am not paid to lie – yet 🙂 .

 

Hot Stuff
10.0 – Don’t drive past
9.5 – Not to be missed
9.0 – Almost perfect
8.5 – Pretty good pub grub
8.0 – Better than pub grub
7.5 – Better than good
7.0 – Better than average
6.5 – Just above pub grub
6.0 – Normal pub grub
5.5 – Had lots of potential
5.0 – Nothing too fancy
4.5 – You get what you pay for
4.0 – You must be hungry
3.0 – Have something else
2.0 – Where’s Macca’s?
1.0 – Are you hungry?

♣ This review is included with the review from the Cooee Hotel, and can be found under the heading Chicken Parmigiana Catch Up.
♠ Sanctuary Point is in New South Wales.
♦ The Chicken Parmigiana I had at the Amble Inn was so bad that, at the time, I decided to not publish the review I wrote.  I’ve made it available here only because this is the page that contains the ranking of the various parmigianas I have had.
♥ These were all reviewed together in my post entitled A Parmigiana Catch Up.

  1. This is quite enlightening, although I don’t think it’s on the menu in the USA. Pamigiana gets served with pasta, not chips here. Maybe I could try something like it with my favorite dish, shrimp tacos!

    1. Hi Lorie,

      I worked in a little Italian restaurant when I first left school, and (all those years ago) it was on the menu served with pasta 🙂

      Now though, the Chicken Parmigiana has become staple ‘pub grub’, served with salad and chips, or veges, and a much loved favourite all across Australia. It certainly is my favourite.
