Wahoo’s reveals menu contest winners
Wahoo’s Fish Taco on Monday unveiled the winning names of its “Taste It. Name It. Win It.” contest.
Power Chopper Salad, Wafu Bowl and Baja-ladas Platter will now be featured on the chain’s menu.
Winners Roas Hopper of San Diego, Shelly Mayo of Brentwood, Calif., and Colleen Rose of La Verne, Calif., will receive free food from Wahoo’s for one year.
“The response from our customers was tremendous — we received thousands of entries and were astounded and delighted at the creativity,” said Wing Lam, Wahoo’s co-founder and partner. “It was a difficult decision to pick three winners. Every entry was original and it was exciting to review all the innovative ideas, several of which had our entire Wahoo’s team laughing.”
Power Chopper Salad is Wahoo’s take on the traditional chopped salad enhanced with rice, beans and salsa. Wafu Bowl is a tofu combo platter served with rice and beans. The Baja-ladas Platter serves the restaurant’s Baja Roll with enchilada sauce and cheese.
Wahoo’s — which operates 50-plus restaurants in California, Colorado, Texas and Hawaii — in September unveiled plans for an aggressive five-year, 100-location expansion.
