Carlsbad CA— For a $10 or under meal, people typically think that fast food is all you can get, but we’re actually seeing more and more options for healthy and delicious meals at value prices.
Urban Plates—the bicoastal chef-driven, fast-casual restaurant brand offering made-from-scratch meals using ethically sourced, clean ingredients— offers a $10 Everyday Menu. Consistent with its mission to make wholesome, clean food financially accessible to all, Urban Plates offer 7 chef-driven dishes available for just $10 all day, every day.
Items range from fresh salads and sandwiches to hearty braises and plant-based bowls, with examples that include the Moroccan Chicken Braise made with cage-free chicken, house-made bone broth, and warming Moroccan spices like cinnamon, paprika, and turmeric (540 calories with brown rice); the vegan, gluten-free Beets + Avocado Bowl featuring organic red and white quinoa, walnuts, pickled red onion, hemp seeds, cabbage, and housemade miso-lemongrass dressing (670 calories); and the Grilled Cage Free Chicken Sandwich made with hand carved herb grilled chicken, slow roasted tomatoes and orange basil aioli on chargrilled artisan ciabatta (690 calories).
Other dishes include the Chimichurri Chicken Plate, Urban Grilled Chicken Salad, Curry Tofu & Vegetable Braise, and the Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwich.
Panera also just launched a Summer menu, with five main course items under $10, and Tender Greens launched a $9 chickpea Mediterranean burger + fries. This is becoming a trend in this fast/fine casual space – offering quality food at an affordable price, which is really what people want and need right now.
