California Tortilla Introduces the Mediterranean Bowl, a Refreshing New Menu Option for Spring

East Meets West with Fast Casual Chain’s New Menu Item

May 16, 2016 // // ROCKVILLE, MD - Warm days, cool sea breezes, leisurely lunches with only the freshest, locally-grown ingredients - we could all take a page from the Mediterranean way of life.  This May, California Tortilla is doing just that, bringing the flavors of the Mediterranean stateside with the Mediterranean Bowl, a refreshing new menu option that’s available starting today, for a limited time only.

The Mediterranean Bowl features customer’s choice of grilled mesquite chicken or farm-fresh veggies, on a bed of romaine lettuce, pearl couscous, Israeli salad (tomato and cucumber) and hummus.  It’s topped off with tzatziki, fresh sliced avocado, feta cheese and California Tortilla’s signature California Screamin’ sauce and finished with a tortilla crisp.

Putting a fresh spin on traditional Mediterranean flavors, the fast casual restaurant adds a Mexican twist: the Israeli salad is made with lime juice and cilantro; and California Screamin’ is a spicy, smoky chipotle sauce available only at California Tortilla locations. 

The cost will be $8.39 or $8.59 (depending on store location).

“California Tortilla is always looking for ways to incorporate fresh, nutrient-packed ingredients into its reimagined Mexican menu,” said Keith Goldman, Executive Chef, California Tortilla. “Following the success of the Super Food Burrito, introduced in January, the Mediterranean Bowl seemed like the perfect addition to our Spring menu.”

The Mediterranean Bowl will be available through the middle of August.
