In case it’s not damn hot enough for you temperature wise, Mellow Mushroom wants to heat up your taste buds with a new, limited-edition run of specialty menu items and cocktails that feature chipotle and poblano peppers.
Dubbed the “Up In Smoke” menu, the following new items will be available through July 27 at all Mellow Mushroom locations:
Fully Blazed Chicken Mole Pie — Signature Mellow Dough with an authentic Mexican mole sauce as a base. Topped with all-natural grilled chicken, caramelized onions, the signature mushroom trio, and mozzarella and feta cheese
Mel’s Fattie — A giant flour tortilla filled with all-natural grilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, and caramelized onions, floating on top of a tomato, black bean and corn base
Smokin’ Shrimp Calzone — Signature Mellow dough filled with roasted peppers, caramelized onions, the signature mushroom trio, all-natural shrimp, Mexican chorizo sausage and mozzarella cheese
Holy Mole Hoagie — All-natural grilled chicken tossed in Mexican mole sauce. Topped with roasted poblano peppers, caramelized onions, the roasted mushroom trio, mozzarella, and feta cheese on a fresh hoagie roll
Shrimp Rajas Salad — Fresh field greens and romaine topped with sautéed all-natural shrimp, roasted poblano peppers, caramelized onions, sprouts, sunflower seeds and fresh Roma tomatoes, all tossed in a chili lime vinaigrette
Chicken Poblano Bowl — All-natural chicken tossed in Mexican mole sauce topped with melted mozzarella and served on spinach with roasted poblano peppers, caramelized onions, mushroom trio, sprouts, feta cheese and Roma tomatoes
Tortilla Soup — A vegetarian-based soup made with hearty onions, black beans, and corn. Garnished with avocado and chipotle cream.
Additionally, pepper-themed cocktails such as an El Diablo margarita and Hot Mama margarita will provide a chance to keep that mouth fire going. Samuel Adams Rebel IPA featuring subtle notes of pine and grapefruit will be on tap to pair with the smoky flavors of the signature dishes instead of fanning the flames.
