Vegetable tempura at the Subway in Vancouver’s Chinatown.
(Subway) The sandwich chain is a popular destination for sushi lovers and there are many options on the restaurant’s menu, including tempura and sushi.
But it’s the vegetable tempurals that keep most Vancouverites happy.
“You’ll find tempura here, and it’s really popular, so it’s good for us,” said J.C. Harkness, the Subway’s director of restaurant operations.
He said he and other employees are happy to have that popular dish available to customers in the city.
“We try to do everything we can to make sure that we have that option, because that’s really what we do at Subway,” Harknesses said.
The restaurant, which has more than 600 employees, started offering vegetable tempuras last year.
Harkness said the chain is happy to serve vegetarian food, but it’s still popular with customers.
“They want to go out and eat in the restaurant, they’re very happy to do that,” he said.
“But they also want to come back and try the food.”
Harknesses added that they also have vegetable salads and sandwiches available for customers who want to try out a different way to eat.
“It’s always a great way to try something different, and a lot of times the vegetarian thing is really popular,” he explained.
Subway said it hopes to make the seasonal menu more appealing in the future.
“You’re going to have seasonal food, and we’re always open to bringing it to new markets,” Harks said.
