Subway Canada Brings the Heat with All-New Jerk-Spiced Rice Bowls
Two all-new menu items at Subway Canada have been dreamed up with the help of Toronto Raptors’ Scottie Barnes and Chris Boucher. Following the introduction of Scottie’s self-proclaimed “Bowlway” menu in 2022, the new Jerk-Spiced Chicken Rice Bowl and Jerk-Spiced Steak Rice Bowl are inspired by both players’ Caribbean heritage and their personal taste preferences and are now available nationwide.
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.
“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.”
“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.”
