Subway is once again leading the way in making fast food chains vegan-friendly.
The sandwich restaurant has introduced the all-vegan ‘Malibu’ sub to selected menus in California as a test to see how well received the meat-free option is with customers.
So far, the response has been positive. Sandwich artists (no, seriously, that’s what they’re called) at the Hollywood and Los Angeles locations have stated that in the week the ‘Malibu Garden’ has been offered, customers have raved about it.
The ingredients of the vegan sub do sound delicious even to meat-eaters: a veggie patty with whole grains such as brown rice and rolled oats, as well as veggies, a dairy and egg-free creamy “fire roasted tomato sauce” and the usual pick-and-choose veggies. Customers can also order it on the vegan Italian bread.
So far there are no plans of offering the ‘Malibu Garden’ in any other states but maybe Subway is just saving other locations for future vegan tests. In 2012, Maryland, DC and Virginia were the lucky ones with three vegan sandwiches available for a selected time. In 2013, the nation’s capital got to have falafel sandwiches and earlier this year, other select locations have been offering hummus as a topping for veggie sandwiches.
