Clean Start to Spring: New Gather & Go Menu

Hunter Gatherer Shanghai

Spring is a time of new beginnings. In the spirit of clean starts, we’ve revamped our Gather & Go menu to offer fresh new takes on your favorite wraps and parfaits!

Our spring menu refresh introduces a wider variety of flavors with four new wraps—can be enjoyed cold or heated to order—and three new parfaits. As always, Gather & Go (G&G) is all about making it easy and delicious to enjoy real food on-the-go—and now you can also combine a G&G wrap with any cold-pressed juice or soup for a specially priced lunch set, or add any G&G item with your HG bowl for a special deal.

To make room for our new flavors we’re taking G&G salads and dips off the table for now—though Hunter Gatherer Yanping Lu will still carry salads. Containers of freshly sliced fruits can still be enjoyed at all four locations.


Salmon and Egg Wrap

Savory with a hint of sweetness, this spinach tortilla wrap combines salmon and sliced eggs with the sweet crunch of apple and chopped pea sprouts. Creamy dill aioli ties all the flavors together. Best enjoyed cold.
