Exciting new menu items make their debut at Jalapeño’s Mexican Restaurant, 314 N. Second Ave. “We still have all the old favorites so no worries there, but there will be some new choices,” said owner Dave Vermeer. Tops on the menu – and tops on your plate! – is the piled-high jalapeño popper burger. A juicy, hand-pressed beef Sweet Lou’s packs a mean burger, especially after a day playing in the snow.
patty is topped with lettuce and two cream cheese-stuffed jalapeno poppers, and then smothered with queso. Served with fries or a salad, this is a meal that dares for anyone to leave hungry. Another notable new offering is a blackened chicken and mango salad, featuring Litehouse bleu cheese dressing and topped with house-made mango salsa. Customers also love the chili Colorado featuring tender pork that’s simmered in a red chili sauce and served with rice and beans. ”This is so highly requested that we added it not only as an entrée plate but also as a specialty burrito with beans and rice inside the tortilla,” Vermeer said. Choices are a very good thing! Sweet Lou’s Restaurant and Bar, 477272 Highway 95 in Ponderay, is a local favorite in the area, serving up steaks, burgers and more in a laid-back, sports-bar atmosphere. And now the secret’s out, as the eatery
expands to the south with a new Sweet Lou’s Restaurant and Taphouse opening mid-November in Coeur d’Alene. Back to the Ponderay location, smoked prime rib returns for the winter menu. But a reminder, it’s only served Friday and Saturday nights. Pizza fans will be happy to know that Trinity at City Beach, 58 Bridge St., is bringing all of their pizzas back on the winter menu. Also, owner Justin Dick said there are several other new additions including a paella made with shrimp, mussels, clams, chicken, chorizo, onions and tomatoes, slowly simmered with rice in a savory saffron-seafood broth. And for those who love venison, an intriguing new Venison Osso Buco features New Zealand shanks that are slow cooked until tender, and served with a savory pan sauce.
