Parmi or parma? It’s the burning question causing rivalry among states. Here in South Australia, we just call it a parmi. Hungry yet? Take a look at some of the best spots to score a parmi in the city. Think crunchy, cheesy and oh so tasty.

Prince Albert Hotel

Tucked away on Wright Street in the CBD is the recently refurbished Prince Albert Hotel. Wear your comfy pants when you visit this pub, because its parmis are huge. To set them apart from the rest, The Prince Albert Hotel uses buttermilk to crumb their schnitties. Plus, every Monday is a $20 Parmi special, just grab yourself a beer and you’re good to go.
