Schnitzel Forever is a Schnitzel restaurant which focuses on bringing a missing dish back to the people of London. It is not only food but heritage too.
The restaurant was created by two friends Bulent Metin (Head Chef) and Mehmet Gerekli (General Manager). Both of whom had come from a great hospitality background. The main idea started with Bulent's deep research on March 2018, to bring a dish that would make a hit in UK... Schnitzel, that will go to hundreds of peoples houses for them to enjoy and travel back to their childhood. Upon this idea, he had started working on a menu that would be unique and will pull people into supporting this project. The first menu was created in June 2019. After a few months, Bulent started searching for a Ghost kitchen as he wanted to do this project as a take-away only business. This was also a good idea to see how people react to this Schnitzel only business. After searching for quite a while, he knew the location had to be in Stoke Newington where he had been living for so many years as it is a unique area where so many cultures meet.
Bulent called Mehmet to tell him about this exciting project he was going to do and asked him if he could assist him with the setup of delivery platforms. Mehmet agreed and they met again after a few years. Once the talks were done with the platforms, the Ghost kitchen was up and running in March 2020 with only him and his wife. A few months in and there was an amazing customer demand for Schnitzels which proved a success. Within 5 months time, talks started with Mehmet to grow this business and as the customer numbers were growing each day, they have started to look for an actual restaurant that can become the first Schnitzel Forever! And, here it is, an old chocolate shop that has transformed into a restaurant to serve its customers Schnitzels in March 2021.
Within a few months, Schnitzel Forever had been noticed by many newspapers and magazines. It has been published on Hackney Citizen, The Guardian by Jay Rayner, The Times, The infatuation and many more. This was a great achievement for Bulent, Mehmet and the team at Schnitzel Forever who had helped them come to where it is now.
