Review : E-Gate Subway Sandwich

The restaurants at E-gate, the building next to Tesco Penang seems to be doing very well. Several of the restaurants are filled to the brim, namely, Hongkie Kopitiam, Tao (or some name like that) and Subway Sandwich.

We tried out Subway today after looking at the mouth watering variety of sandwiches on Subway’s main website. Of course, many of the items we saw on Subway branches in USA are not available here. The Subway here is a halal outlet.

If you love bread and salad, then, Subway is the place for you. We had the foot long Italian BMT which is a foot long Parmesan Oregano bun filled with salami, ham and another sandwich with turkey breast and ham. You can choose any variety of fillings such as Chicken teriyaki, Steak, Beef, seafood, meatballs and many other choices. The vegetables too are too many to pick ranging from jalapeno peppers, olives, cucumbers, pickles, all sorts of green vegetables, tomatoes and etc. After that, you can pick the sauces you like which again, are many. My son had barbeque, mayonaise, olive oil and salt & pepper. I chosed mustard and mayonaise.

I only get a blur photo because I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into the crispy vege, cheese and meats. The service staffs are very efficient, friendly and accommodating. Though there are only three of them, things went smoothly. I must applaud this efficiency which is rare, if you compare the number of staffs hired by other fast food restaurants.
Prices wise, Subway may be more expensive than the fast food chains but their stuffs are fresh and different from the regular white buns we get. The fun is in picking the combination that makes the sandwich taste great.

Our dinner bill comes to roughly RM35 for two persons. I suppose the lunch hour crowds will be good as there are many expatriates working in the free trade zone who will patronise outlets serving western foods like Subway.
