On March 21, Jugo Juice launched a revamped food menu with 4 new sandwiches and 5 new wraps.

The new sandwiches are served on heritage sourdough from local bakery Terra Breads or a brand new natural and preservative free artisan bun from Ace Bakery called schiacciata.

I was invited to a media tasting of the new items and got to try the 4 sandwiches:

Mediterranean Roasted Vegetable on schiacciata bread

For those of you who follow me on social media, you would know that we took a trip to Vancouver Island. It was a pretty epic trip — travelled from Nanaimo to Port Hardy and San Josef Bay in the northwest corner, and everywhere in between — 2,300km in 9 days.

First one this year, Mr. Shawarma near the Hyatt Regency Vancouver Hotel.

The menu is pretty simple: pita wraps, boxes and fries/poutine. I have heard that its boxes are pretty big, so I opted for the smaller Beef Pita Wrap instead. Looking at the menu and one phrase caught my attention – Potato Fries Stuffed in Wrap — what?! Now I’m intrigued.

The wrap was still pretty decent in size. It had lots of beef inside, a bit dry on its own but the sauces helped keep it all together. I like the nutty flavour in the Tahini sauce. You have the choice of spicy or not spicy with your wrap or box; I ordered the wrap spicy so it had a nice hint of heat without being overpowering. And there were the potato fries! (more…)
