Subway – The new McD

6 Feb

Lately I have been preferring Subway over Mc Donalds. Sure there are days when you have to have Mc Veggie, fries and coke but then there are also days when you wana dig your teeth into a big juicy sandwich. Maybe it turns out to be a little expensive comparatively, but I believe its healthier. I love the customization they allow. And the best part – they don’t charge you for every little thing. Mc Donalds has this very bad habit of charging extra for everything. They don’t even deliver for free. Who doesn’t do free home delivery now a days?!

Subway and I are foes turned into friends. The very first time I went to Subway was about 3 years ago. The time when jalapenos was jalapenos and not alapenos. It was scary because there were so many options. Also I was used to the system of being charged extra for everything. So I just ordered whatever my classmate (who was with me that time) ordered. It was not tasty. And messy. And the mess was embarrassing.

Very recently they have put up the 1-5 steps or ordering a subway. Good relief for people like me. Especially so because the employees there talk only in fast English. Never mind the Marathi twang that makes it impossible to understand. My very good friend and co-blogger taught me “How to order a Subway”. It was trial and error method that needed practice and patience. I can now tell the breads and sauces from one another. Very cool. Also cool is the Sub of the day. Tuesday Thursday and Sunday  are the only veg days. You get a 6” Subway sandwich for Rs.75 which would normally cost you anything between 100-150. Neat.

Now I can even ask someone to pick up a sub for me and belt out very specific instructions : 6” Parmesan Oregano, no cheese (saves 10 freaking bucks plus sounds health conscious), lettuce-tomato-cucumber-more pickles-capsicum-olives-red onions-more jalapenos, mayonnaise-southwest-very little sweet onion-little mustard-mint and sometimes curd and pepper.

Portions are pretty damn good and they throw in the extras wherever you ask. Satisfying and wholesome. No frilly coke cookie salad chips blah blah. All these are very very overpriced. Actually I want to try the salads some time.Needless to say, I go on the above mentioned days only. The fulfilling feeling of opening the mouth as much as you can, biting into the juicy sandwich, the veggies falling out from everywhere… And thinking you paid only Rs.75 for all this sweetness. Muaaaaah.

So next time you are coming to meet me, please pick up a sub on your way :)

    How much did you get as advertisement income for this article? Just kiddin ;-)

    I did not understand this article since it involves coded language abt Mc and SubWay and I am not a regular at such places.

    I guess now I can find a decent personal guide whenever I wish to go to either place :-)

    Subway and McD’s satisfy a different part of my palate. Subway is boring and McD’s is fun for me. If it weren’t for the ubiquitous lecture about eating healthy, I’d probably never go to Subway when I’m in the mood for fast food.
