Munch Box

Munch Box got off to a hesitant start this spring, but you can now see them on a regular basis at Columbus Commons as participants in Lunch on the Lawn (Wednesdays 10am-2pm). From what we’ve heard, we’re sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of them elsewhere as well in the future.

Munch Box offers a choice of wraps or flatbreads with a variety of toppings/fillings. As well as the menu items pictured above, we’ve also seen them offer scallop flatbreads, hummus wraps, stew and sandwiches in the past.

We tried the steak braised beef with poblano cilantro, pesto, and brussels sprout slaw on flatbread. The meat was both tender and flavorful, and the slaw accompanied it well (although it might be a bit on the vinegary side for some). The flatbread base was somewhat unusual – it seemed like more of a flattened wrap than what we’d typically think of as a flatbread, and it got soggy when the toppings were added.

Munch balls are cake balls that come in a variety of flavors and are something fun to share if you are eating with a group of friends. We’re looking forward to trying more of their offerings on future visits.

    The beef and slaw (as a wrap—sorry to hear the flatbread was soggy, but the wrap works) were very good at the Hills Market event today. Best thing I had, most likely, and I heard a few other people say the same. Nice earthy savoriness to the beef, balanced really well by the crunchy-crisp slaw. Thumbs up.

    I LOVE their brussel sprout slaw, and the hummus is to die for!
