4 January 2022 | 0
Subway has unveiled a new addition to its plant-based menu for Veganuary – the T.L.C. Tikka (Tastes.Like.Chicken).
The T.L.C. Tikka, a new spice-inspired twist on the original roast-chicken inspired T.L.C., is a special addition to the menu exclusively for Veganuary, available from Wednesday 29 December to Tuesday 15 February in select stores across Ireland and the UK, replacing the classic T.L.C. for a limited time.
Made from strips of plant-based ‘chicken’, the T.L.C. Tikka is made to a unique recipe with tikka-inspired flavours, designed to mimic Subway’s roast chicken breast strips, and is available with slices of Violife vegan cheese. The T.L.C. Tikka is fully customisable and is available as a 6-inch or Footlong Sub, a salad or a wrap for even more choice.
Made from soy-based protein and a unique recipe that both plant-lovers and flexitarians will enjoy, the T.L.C. Tikka is also approved by the Vegan Society.
Subway has one of the widest ranges of plant-based options of any high-street restaurant chain in Ireland and the UK. The new T.L.C. Tikka will join year-round menu items including the popular Meatless Meatball Marinara – which won PETA’s 2020 award for Best Vegan Sandwich, the Plant Patty created through Subway’s new partnership with The Vegetarian Butcher, Veggie Delite, Vegan Double Choc Cookie – which won PETA’s 2021 Vegan Food Award for Best Cookie, Crinkle Wedges, Meatless Meatballs Bowl and Hash Browns.
“Our new plant-based T.L.C. Tikka tastes so delicious that vegans, flexitarians and non-vegans will love them,” said Mays Elansari, head of marketing UK & Ireland at Subway. “At Subway, we are proud to have one of the have one of the widest and tastiest ranges of plant-based choices on the high street, without any compromise on flavour or taste, to offer our guests even more choice.”
