Dining Out - Pret a Manger

Veega Pret

Pret's Crunchy Wrap (Vegan) - Pret a Manger

Pret a Manger, or Pret for short, opened in Boston in November 2012. After the initial excitement and the crowds died down a bit I finally went today for lunch. Luckily I made it in and out with my lunch to-go in a couple of minutes. I've seen numerous locations throughout NYC, but this was my first time stepping foot in one. Pret is a London-Based sandwich chain that sells prepackaged sandwiches, salads, soups, and baked goods. It wins bonus points for a few reasons:
  • They proudly share (it's even written on their packaging) that they donate leftover food to local charities to feed the hungry rather than sell day-old food to customers
  • They use all natural ingredients and list out the ingredients and nutrition facts on each food item
  • They label food items vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free
Vegan options include: Pret's Crunchy Wrap, Farmer's Market Salad, Red Wine Vinaigrette, Energy Bagel, Organic Popcorn, Winter Veggie Quinoa Salad, Oatmeal, Omega 3 Mix, Lentil & Couscous Salad Pot, Three Bean Chili Soup, Miso Soup, Moroccan Lentil Soup, Skinny Veggie Soup, and Carrot Ginger Soup - Quite the list!

Pret's Crunchy Wrap - $6.25 - 370 Calories

I tried Pret's Crunchy Wrap. It was reasonably priced, albeit on the high side for being just vegetables, at $6.25, and the calorie count came in at a moderate 370. The tortilla wrap comes with avocado, cucumbers, garbanzo beans, hummus, red peppers, spinach, carrots, beets, tomatoes, and Pret's seasoning. It was fresh-tasting and satisfying. The seasoning, hummus, and avocado blended together nicely fooling you into thinking there was a cream-based dressing on it. I would definitely get it again.
