If there's one thing we've noticed recently, it's the queues at Joe & The Juice opposite BOSH! HQ. The people are going mad for the Scandi chain spot, and we've decided to give them some free promo by making a plant-based version of one of their biggest sellers. Our version uses plant-based tuna, which is actually made from pea protein and seaweed, to get that seafood feel and taste. We're confident that it's better than the original, but we'll let you be the judges!
