The ‘Shipwreck’ Is A Massive Seafood Sandwich Built On A Loaf Of Garlic Bread

The best part of hitting up a seafood emporium is the variety of options you have available. Everything from freshly fried calamari to creamy clam chowder and freshly grilled fish is on deck.

While it may be hard to pick just one item to enjoy, there’s always the option of combining them all together, and this sandwich does just that.

Called the Shipwreck, this all-in-one sub is easily enough to feed the entire squad. Found at the San Pedro Fish Market Grille, this bountiful fish sandwich carries all of the ocean’s most mouthwatering treasures.

That involves heaps of fried calamari, slabs of grilled salmon, and a healthy portion of clam chowder (yes, you get soup IN this sandwich) tucked into made-to-order garlic bread. It’s all brought together with deep-fried potatoes, fajita vegetables with cheese, and San Pedro’s Secret Sauce.

All three locations of the San Pedro Fish Market Grille, in Wilmington, Rolling Hills Estates, and Harbor City, California, are now carrying The Shipwreck through the end of January. If you can’t make the drive out to one of the Grilles to try this in person, San Pedro Fish Market does sell spices, hot sauces, and Minute Meals online that you can order to make this bad boy within the confines of your own kitchen.

The Shipwreck is the seafood enthusiast’s cheat meal and the sandwich fanatic’s dream all wrapped up in one, and is an absolute beast capable of capsizing almost any appetite. It’s worth the challenge of seeking out and conquering, whether it be solo or with a couple of hungry pals.

Created in partnership with San Pedro Fish Market.

Carl’s Jr.’s Newest Burger Is Using Garlic Bread For Buns

Carl’s Jr. has low-key dropped a Garlic Bread Thickburger on some select menus in Southern California as part of a new garlic-themed lineup the chain appears to be testing.

Foodbeast Elie Ayrouth spotted the burger at a Carl’s Jr. location in Orange, CA. The Garlic Bread Thickburger is part of a garlic-centric menu that also includes Cheesy Garlic Fries. It can be made as a single, double, or 1/3-pound option, and comes loaded with “Garlic Crisps,” tomato, Swiss cheese, mayo, and grilled onions.

The bread used on the burger is similar to the sourdough bread topping other sandwiches on the menu, but comes brushed with what appears to be a garlic butter on top. A unique addition is the “Garlic Crisps,” which taste like they are made out of Parmesan cheese and add a nutty, savory note to the burger.

The Cheesy Garlic Fries are dusted with a garlic powder and topped with a simple shredded cheese blend. They cost $3.49 for an order, while the burger’s pricing starts at about $4.45 for a single, with the double burger combo (with standard fries and a drink) costing about $6.95.

Both the fries and the burger appear to be a Carl’s Jr. test in the Southern California region, with at least two other locations confirmed to be selling both. We’ve also reached out to the Carl’s team to see where else the burgers are being sold and for how long, but they did not immediately respond for comment.

Subway Tells Foodbeast Garlic Bread Recall ‘Not Food Safety Related’

We should have known it was too good to be true.

Apparently Subway’s new garlic bread has been pulled from the assembly line due to “contamination.” A tipster screennamed “lubby” posted this warning the forums last Friday afternoon:

“This has not made the news yet, I checked. I work at Subway and we got an urgent message from Subway HQ to throw out any garlic bread plus the garlic butter topping. It was contaminated. Not sure how or what it was contaminated with. I wanted my fellow foodies to know in case they had some. The garlic bread was a new feature for September.”

It’s unclear whether the problems were  limited to any specific batch, but our local Subway in Santa Ana was not offering the garlic bread when we visited earlier today. A few comments have also appeared on the Subway Facebook page complaining about the garlic bread’s supposed contamination and unavailability (ex: A, B, C).

Garlic bread was just the second in a string of brand new menu offerings from the sandwich chain (the first being the Applewood Pulled Pork), so yeah, you could say we’re a little bummed, especially since it was just introduced September 1st.

So far, Subway has released this official statement:

“Our garlic bread seasoning was not being made to the specifications we required. Although it was not food safety related, we temporarily removed it from our bread offerings.  We’re working around the clock to get garlic bread back in your local Subway restaurant and it will be worth the wait.”

Which, okay, seems reasonable. Just hurry up and bring it back, would you Subway? We’re suffering from some serious QSR blue balls here.

Subway to Roll Out Garlic Bread, Make All Locations Nationwide Smell Even Funkier


We have seen the future, and its name is Allium sativum – but you can just call it “garlic.”

Starting September 1, Subway will launch new Garlic Bread for a limited time at all Subway locations nationwide. Per usual, the GB will be baked fresh daily, fortified with Calcium and Vitamin D and probably skew the bread-to-meat ratio highly in bread’s favor, but hey, at least it’ll taste like Italy. Or, you know, at least like Olive Garden.

“We love to treat our customers to new versatile flavors that complement the submarine sandwiches on our menu, hot or cold,” Tricia Hetherington, Director of R&D for Subway, said in a press release. “The mouth-watering garlic flavor profile serves as the perfect pairing to any of our sandwiches, especially the hearty Spicy Italian, Meatball Marinara or Italian B.M.T. Footlong.”

We’ll be sure to test it out ourselves as soon as we can, but in the meantime, let’s just assume 1) it’ll probably taste better than any of the cardboard-y carbs they have available now and 2) you’ll soon be able to find the nearest Subway in your city just by following your nose. Because buddy if you didn’t think it smelled dank before, it’s about to smell DANK, even if you’re not into that.

Subway’s also bringing back its $5 any regular Footlongs (of which there’s 22, just FYI) throughout the month of September (“SUB-tember”). But yeah, the smell. Let’s all just brace ourselves for the smell, because whooo boy.
