“ Manufacturer: Subway / Type: Sandwich „
A sub or submarine sandwich is a sandwich that consists of a long roll of Italian or French bread, split lengthwise either into two pieces or opened in a "V" on one side, and filled with a variety of meats, cheeses, vegetables, seasonings, and sauces. According to an article I read about the history of Subway, "Fred DeLuca borrowed $1,000 from family friend Peter Buck, to start his first sandwich shop on August 28, 1965. At the end of 2010, Subway was the largest fast food chain on Earth, with 33,749 restaurants worldwide, 1,012 more thanMcDonald's. In terms of revenue, McDonald's still led Subway." Subway is a chain of restaurants that serve lovely sub sandwiches that aim to be healthy, cheap and tasty. There are so many different subway sandwiches that you can go for, you can choose to make your own and add lots of different things or you can order off their menu and one of my favourites from their menu is the Italian BMT. According to Subway this stands for Big. Meaty. Tasty!, and I definitely agree it is. They say it is packed full of delicious pepperoni, salami and ham for a spicy kick. Obviously, depending on what you add, for example sauces and different cheeses etc the calorie count will vary but according to their website if you go with wheat bread and salad there are about 396 calories. This is not brilliant but no bad either and compared to a Big Mac which is about 700 ish calories its a better lunch choice than a hamburger. Like I've said above, the fun thing about this restaurant is that you can choose exactly what goes in your sandwich, unlike other fast food sandwich bars where you just buy a ready made sandwich. I love the choosing bit and there is quite a lot to choose from. I like to start with the BMT lineup and really like the meat that goes into this sandwich. I love salami and the salami I have here is always nice and spicy and tasty and not at all rubbery or bland. The ham is good too and then this is when I like to customise my sandwich. You are first given the choice of the size of sandwich you want, half a sandwich or a foot long and I generally go for the foot long which is almost too big but the half a sandwich is generally a bit too small! There are lots of different types of bread, such as brown bread, white, cheese on the top etc. I like to add some slices of white cheese, tomato, salad, peppers, pickles, mayonnaise and then mustard. You can choose to make your sandwich part of a meal deal by adding a soft drink and a packet of crisps. I usually add this to my sandwich and you end up paying in the £6-£7 region for a whole Italian BMT meal which is not too bad, a nice treat and one I love from time to time.
Im sure by now everybody knows how convenient Subway has become, from just out doing your shopping, popping in for a quick bite of lunch, or on your way home from a night out, popping in to line your stomach with something - we all know Subway is a food outlet that will provide us with what we are after. Subway stores are everywhere, with them scattered around the UK, Europe and America and further. They have proved very popular, and their fast, eat in/take out for a low price approach has got us all tempted. They do a variety of bread, which is your first step in picking what you want. There is an option to choose your size, which you have the option of a footlong or a 6 inch sub. The next step after your size is to pick your bread (personally i think Itallian works best with every sandwich), were you can then put your favourite sandwich together. You can add extras for 50p, which is always a nice thing to do. You then get to pick what salad you would like, and whether you would like cheese and/or toasted, and get to add some sauce if you wish. You will then usually be prompted if you would like "any cookies or drinks", which can make it a meal deal. Your sandwhich is made right there in front of you, nice and fresh, with bread just coming out of the oven. The Italian BMT sandwich is my favourite, and hasnt been around to long. The sandwich contains salami, pepperoni and ham, with cheese if you wish. You can choose any bread and any salad you like. Salad to choose from includes lettuce, tomato, cucumber, jalapenos, peppers, olives and lots more. Sauces to choose from are once again down to personal preference, but some include BBQ, Mayo and Ketchup. The Italian BMT is lovely and personally i think is the most gorgerous out of the choices available to you for the price. A 6" one of these made in to a meal deal is great and easily fills you up, and doesnt lay heavy on your stomach. This sub is just short of 550 calories, which isnt great if your dieting but you could choose a healthier bread and cut back on the unhealthy sauce. Subway likes to give the impression of being somewhere healthy to eat, especially with their latest advert of atheletes eating there, but you have to be so careful. Usually the ones you think dont have many calories in are usually the ones that contribute to you carrying extra pounds at your next weigh in! The price of the Italian 6" inch will get you change from £3, and a footlong adds £2 on to that. All in all its a very tasty sub, and i am thinking now of going to buy one as ive tempted myself writing this!
Subway sandwiches would have to be one of my favourites. I don't usually have a foot long subway but if I do it's so that I can have it for lunch the next day as well. At subway you make the choice about sandwich fillings and bread. There is a good selection of bread on offer; my favourite is now the herb and cheese sub. There is a large selection of meats on offer as well as a great selection of salads. You basically make the sandwich to your specification, including the size. You have the option of a foot long sub or a 6-inch sub (basically half the size). I first tried the Italian BMT when it was on offer as sub of the day. I knew I liked the types of meat that they put in it so I thought it was worth a go and it was. I had hearty Italian bread for the BMT, the meat is salami, ham and pepperoni and for the salad I had lettuce, onion, gherkins and mayonnaise for the sauce. There are so many combinations that would really work for this sub but these were my favourites. The sub itself is quite spicy, obviously the pepperoni is the main contributor to that. If you don't like spicy food though don't worry it's not that spicy, I don't like spicy food but this I can eat this without any problems, plus I find the mayonnaise helps reduce the spice a bit. The price of the BMT sub is not bad either. For the sub of the day it's £2.29 for a 6-inch sub it's not a lot more to go for the foot long sub. If you have your cheese toasted or you eat in you will also have to pay more not much, I think it's about 30p. I would recommend doing the meal deal where you'll get a drink and cookie or crisps with your sub - the double chocolate cookies are very nice.
I have just finished a foot long BMT on cheese and herb bread which is toasted with cheese and with the full works salad and then finished with south west sauce. That is a large name and description but the sub is equally massive. The BMT includes pepperoni, ham and pastrami cold meats which give it a very meaty texture and cured meat flavour which I like. The bread is made on site and smells fresh with a soft texture and crispy when cooked. The sub is served overflowing with salad and sauce and this makes it very messy but the salad is crisp and fresh and although cold against the rest of the warm sub it does work as a complete unit. The important point though is that it will be made to your spec in all areas as it is made in front of you. What I list is how I like mine only. It is priced at £3.05 in my local shop although some places may be different. The foot long is an extra £2.
I lie going to Subway, and not sure if I like it there more than Baguette Express. Guess it depends what mood i'm in. The BMT Sandwich is on of my favourites though. You can have this on a 6" or !2" Sandwich. The 6" is normally £2.80, but if it is Sub of the Day then you get it for £1.99. You can get this on 5 different types of Sub, I go for the Italian White. The Sub is is nice, soft and fresh. It is baked on the premises and I think that since my local Subway is pretty busy, then the Subs don't sit around too long. You can get the Subs toasted as well, which I normally do. Since it has Cheese on it, then it is nice with the Cheese melted over the Meat. So what's the filling in this? The main part is Pepperoni, Ham and Salami. You then have the choice to add Cheese, plenty of Salad such as Red Onion, Lettuce, Tomato, Cucumber, Peppers and then a Sauce on top such as Mayo, Sweet Chilli, 1000 Island and a few others. The Meat in here is nice. It tastes fresh and also good quality. There doesn't seem to be fatty bits in the Meat, and although it may seem a bit much having all this Meat crammed into a Sub, if you have Salad and sauce then it gives it a whole new flavour. A good one to try if you are a Meat eater - obviously.
I go to Subway quite a bit and one of my fave sandwiches from there is the Italian BMT which is a real meaty sandwich that you can dress up with whatever salad you want. You choose from the breads in Subway as usual and I think this goes best on the hearty Italian one because it goes good with all the flavours of the meat and you get a choice of having cheese or not, I recomend having the cheese because it melts nice if you have your sandwich toasted and mixes in with the meat to give it an extra nice flavour. The person in Subway will put pepperoni, ham and salami on the sandwich and then it's up to you to decide what salad you want on it. I think red onion, olives, sweetcorn and lettuce go the best but sometimes I have tomato and cucumber as well if I'm very hungry. This sandwich is probably the greasist one in Subway because of the salami and pepperoni and this is even worse if you get it toasted because then the grease will come out of the meat and even though it tastes nice it's not very good for you like that! The meat is all good quality and tastes fresh to me. The salami is nice and spicy and so is the pepperoni but I think some days that the pepperoni is a bit too spicy because it makes the sandwich taste dead hot sometimes, but this doesn't always happen so I reckon it depends what supplier Subway are using that day if they change suppliers but if they don't then I don't know what makes the meat spicier some days than others. I usually have their spicy bbq sauce on this sandwich because that goes nice with the meat but when my mum has it she always has mayo because she thinks the pepperoni is too spicy to add a spicy sauce to. The Italian BMT is a very filling sandwich and a 6 inch one will keep you full up until your next meal is due. Sometimes if I'm very hungry I'll have a footlong one but I always struggle to finish that because the fillings in the BMT mean I get full up before I can finish it, but that's ok because I just wrap up what's left over and then nuke it for a few seconds in the microwave to liven it up again. This doesn't work with all Subway sandwiches though but this is one that is ok when it's been reheated. Every Thursday the Italian BMT is Sub Of The Day and that means it only costs £1.99 instead of about £2.79. I just realised, it's Thursday today so I guess I'll be having a BMT for my dinner!
I have been a fan of Subway for a few years now, and recently I have started eating sandwiches from this company almost everyday. While I normally like to have a balanced diet and to cook for myself, since starting a new job, it has often made a lot more sense to bring a sandwich with me to work rather than eating before hand, as I would be absolutely starving if I had to wait for a ten hour shift or more to end before I could eat. Since there are two Subway shops on my way to work, and since Subway sandwiches are relatively good value and healthier than many other takeaways, I have started getting an Italian BMT sandwich almost every day on my way to work. Most of you will be familiar with Subway stores and how they work, but I'll describe them briefly before I talk about this sandwich in particular. Basically, in Subway you can order a sandwich with any combination of fillings that you want, including a choice of bread, meat, salad and sauce. Your sandwich is made fresh in front of you according to your instructions, and is always absolutely gorgeous and well worth the money (in my opinion at least). The Italian BMT sandwich is a sandwich that contains pepperoni, salami and ham, and comes in any bread, with any combination of salad ingredients and sauce that you like. I usually go for lettuce, cucumber, peppers, olives, pickles and jalapeños, as I feel that these flavours complement the meaty flavours fairly well. The Subway website recommends that you have either Southwest Chipotle (a deliciously spicy sauce) or Barbecue sauce in this sandwich, and I would definitely agree with that, as those are the only two sauces I ever have on my Italian BMT and they both taste great. I would say that the best way to enjoy an Italian BMT is to have it toasted on Herb's and Cheese bread, with the salad I mentioned above, grated cheese and Southwest Chipotle sauce, as all these flavours mix together well to make it an amazing sandwich. The melted cheese and hot pepperoni makes the sandwich feel like a bizarre yet exciting pizza, and the sauce is absolutely out of this world. Italian BMT is always my first choice when going to Subway, as it is the most delicious of the choices available. I always find that a 6" sub is enough for a meal, and with the sauce salad and bread that I choose, this weighs in at roughly 550 calories. While that seems like quite a lot for a sandwich, it fills me up enough that I don't feel the need to have any more, and isn't too bad even if you're on a diet. Of course, if you go for the foot long sandwich then the calorie level doubles, but that really is a large meal for anyone, so it's unsurprising that it's calorific. They're not particularly healthy things to eat, but since you can get a fair variety of salad into them, you're probably getting close to one of your five a day by having one, so you can't really complain. A 6" inch BMT will set you back £2.89, and a foot long will cost you £4.69 (I believe), though if you pop along to Subway on a Thursday you can get a 6" BMT for only £2 as part of their 'Sub of the Day' offer. Italian BMTs can only be bought at Subway, but if you live in a major city, you shouldn't have to walk for more than 10 minutes from your doorstep before you find one.
