Grab a bite

Experience the popular sandwiches from America in various veg and non-veg options at Subway

TWO LOAVES of freshly baked `foot long' bread holding succulent layers of olive and jalapeno salad, tuna/mushrooms, cheese (optional) and a dash of Dijon horseradish melt sauce - a sinfully scrumptious affair - is the Subway sandwich for you. This staple of the Boston-New York commuting workforce takes its name from the submarine-shaped bread used for the preparation. "Subway is an anytime meal. It is filling and healthy since there is no deep fry involved," says Sandeep Shah, owner Subway. This franchisee of the Connecticut headquartered fast food joint, which has its presence in about 73 countries with over 19,000 branches, opened in town a few days ago.

"We were in the U.S. for over ten years and we were missing the sandwiches after coming back to the city. We are happy to bring the subways here for people to experience a flavour of New York right in the heart of the city," says Sandeep.

The ambience is bright— walls in fresh lime tone splashed with life-size posters of fresh vegetables. The pastel prints-topped tables make dining a pleasure here. The tempting element in this cosy self-service restaurant is the display window that offers you various options for the topping— wafer thin slices of tuna, turkey breast, smoked chicken, corn and peas and more. The place offers varied options in Vegetable, Classic and Select (with subway sauces Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki and Red Wine Vinaigrette) Subs, in the main hot and cold (meat) categories.

"The popular subways are Turkey Breast & Smoked Chicken Ham in the non-vegetarian section and Bistro Garden Patty in the vegetarian fare. We have incorporated some Indian options such as Chicken tikka and Paneer tikka that you don't find in the U.S. though. There are international flavours like Hummus & falafel and Chicken fajita. But if you want to bite into an authentic western subway, the Boston Manhattan Transit special or the Italian BMT is one to go for," he says.

Apart from toppings, Subway also offers options in breads, Italian, hearty Italian, parmesan oregano, sesame seed and wheat (brown bread for the calorie conscious)in different sizes. Choose from the stuffed, small bun Deli Style Sandwich, a 6" or a whole foot long (30 cm). Hungry? Make your subway `a meal deal' with chips and 450 ml aerated drink. Another combo you can try out is subway with chocolate cookies. And if you are a salad person, get the toppings, corn and peas, tuna or turkey breast tossed in Asaigo Ceaser Dressing or mayonnaise, for a healthy bowl of salad.

Grab a bite at Subway located at 5, Lumbini Amrutha Chambers, 8-2-248/B, Road No. 3, Banjara Hills. (Tel: 55102121).
