Canadians looking to adds a little heat and a twist to their Subway chicken and rise bowls can do so with the announcement by Subway Canada of the introduction of the new Jerk-Spiced Chicken Rice Bowl and Jerk-Spiced Steak Rice Bowl.
These two new bowls are inspired by Toronto Raptors’ Scottie Barnes and Chris Boucher Caribbean heritage and their personal taste preferences.
“Jerk chicken is one of the most popular dishes in Jamaica, and with my dad being Jamaican, I grew up loving it,” says Barnes. “When you think jerk chicken, you think of spices like chili peppers and allspice, which really come through in Subway’s Jerk-Spiced Chicken Bowl, which pairs perfectly with the other bowl ingredients.”
Scottie’s Jerk-Spiced Chicken Rice Bowl features some of his favourite ingredients, like banana peppers and rotisserie-style chicken, while Chris’s Jerk-Spiced Steak Rice Bowl includes his favourite flavour pairing, steak and cheese. Both will combine a cool, crunchy hit of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, and crispy onions for unparalleled flavour and topped with a hit of jerk aioli.
“The food I eat plays a massive role in maintaining my competitive edge, and Subway has always been a go-to for a quick, complete, and delicious meal,” says Boucher. “The Jerk-Spiced Steak Rice Bowl features my favourite combo—steak and cheese—and helps me stay focused on and off the court.”
