Home to some of Orlando’s best burgers, Oblivion Taproom will debut a new menu this week.
Have no fear faithful eaters…the new menu isn’t all that different. Basically it’s new in that it has new items, not that it’s a whole new menu.
Among the new permanent menu items will be crowd favorite The Hog Wild burger, which is topped with cheddar, caramelized onions, barbecue sauce, a giant onion ring and, putting the “hog” in the title, chopped pork and house-made bacon.
Also new will be a Teriyaki burger, which is marinated in teriyaki sauce and topped with Asian cabbage slaw and wasabi aioli, along with a few new appetizers, and a new dessert.
You can check out the new menu for yourself on Tuesday, July 15, starting at 4pm, when they open. They also have 40 taps of great beers and Orlando’s largest cider collection.
Oblivion Taproom is located at 5101 E. Colonial Dr. For more information, visit obliviontaproom.com.
