On November 5, JT Schmid’s Restaurant and Brewery will introduce new menu items to its already extensive list. New appetizers include coconut shrimp, jumbo shrimp, butterflied, covered in fresh shaved coconut and deep fried, and flatbread pizzas such as Margherita, wild mushroom, roasted pear and blue cheese. Entrees include a jalapeño mac and cheese, made with chicken, tomatoes, bacon and raditori pasta in a creamy ale sauce and a meatball sandwich made with angus beef meatballs, garlic, tomatoes, smothered in homemade marinara sauce and topped with parmesan cheese, served on a brioche bun. The restaurant is also offering new sides of made to order potato chips, tater tots and beer battered steak fries as well as seven new desserts including the Dream Bomba – a scoop of peanut butter gelato with a caramel center, dipped in milk chocolate and topped with peanut butter drizzle. Picture a Bon Bon™ on steroids.
The real big news is the introduction of JT’s “Bigger Badder Asser” burger, which is a 12” custom baked bun, 6lb beef patty grilled and topped with lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese, pickles, onions and roasted corn mayo. Customers have the option to order this cowboy style, which comes with fried onion rings, 15 slices of bacon, blue cheese and BBQ sauce or additionally you can order any of the “Regular Burger” styles. This is also available in a turkey patty.
The magnitude of this burger is not designed for individual consumption, unless of course, you are a linebacker for the (insert your NFL football team of choice). The $50 burger is aimed for the shock and awe factor and probably best suited for a party since it feeds up to 6 people. I think it could feed more. It is huge!
JT Schmid’s Restaurant and Brewery has two locations in Orange County; Tustin and Anaheim.
