Last month, a number of observant foodies spotted the new Bacon Crusted Shrimp Po’ Boy Sandwich at select Arby's locations across the US. While the savory seafood sandwich is still in the testing phase, the new dish could mean that the chain is ready to expand beyond its signature deli meats.
Arby's Bacon-Crusted Shrimp Po’ Boy Sandwich is a monstrous creation that is not for the faint of heart. The sandwich consists of deep fried shrimp made with a crispy bacon coating. The shrimp is paired with sliced tomato, red onion, lettuce and the chain's Po’ Boy Sauce. The sandwich is then served on a toasted sub roll to make it easy for consumer to enjoy the savory seafood creation on the go.
By combining shrimp with bacon, the new sandwich is sure to appeal to meat lovers who normally pass over seafood options.
