The Goods from Beetbox
Vancouver, BC | Plant-based comfort-food favourite Beetbox is getting the summer season in full swing by introducing new ‘Beet the Heat’ Slushie Buckets and bringing back its popular Beach Bag Combos for two beginning tomorrow at the West End hotspot.
Each beach-ready Beet the Heat Slushie Bucket comes with a four-litre bucket filled with cantaloupe-apple slushie mix, ladle, four cups, straws and garnishes for $29, with add-ons that include 375-mL mickeys of Cazadores Tequila Reposado ($20) or Bombay Sapphire gin ($17) or a 200-mL bottle of St-Germain elderflower liqueur ($17). Slushies are also available by the glass (16 oz) for $5, with mini 50-mL bottles of vodka or gin available as add-ons for $5 each.
The new slushies will also be available as part of Beetbox’s popular Beach Bag Combos, which feature ready made, al-fresco feasts for pairs of picnickers, backpackers or beach-blanketers and include a choice of two sandwiches (the Burger with Cheeze or Classic or Nashville Chick-Un), two hot sides (excluding Chili Cheeze Fries) and two bottled or canned beverages (including alcoholic and zero-proof selections) or virgin slushies all packed and ready to go in a custom Beetbox tote to keep for $49 plus tax.
Guests can also tote away jars of Beetbox’s ‘secret ingredients’ by adding items from the restaurant’s signature and housemade ‘Beetbox Basics’ line of vegan condiments, toppings and dressings like Spicy Pickles, Hot Sauce and Chipotle, Miso and Vegan Mayo varieties and more, all available in handy take-home formats fresh from the fridge.
NEW WEEKLY MENU DROPS
Beetbox Chef/Co-Owner Bryan Satterford continues to add to Beetbox’s lineup of vegan, vegetarian and flexitarian-friendly fare by dropping new weekly menu features every Tuesday, with the latest — the Filet o’ Phish (beer-battered tofu filet, meyer lemon tartar sauce, pickles, shedduce, potato bun) — available exclusively until Tuesday, May 11.
