Subway. It’s the largest restaurant chain in the world, and we’ve all been there for a quick lunch at one time or another, or for a filling snack in between meals. But it can be quite daunting for first-time customers, with the sheer number of choices at Subway to select from – not to mention which bread, sauce and snacks you’d like for your order.
In London, 20-year-old Anna decided to order her first ever sandwich from Subway after a night out. Whereas most of us might go for an Italian B.M.T. or a Meatball Marinara, her order was slightly different – and the sandwich artist actually took a picture after making the sandwich.
Ditch the meat but there’s still plenty of choices at Subway
Cheese, olives, and cucumber. As sandwich fillings, they aren’t necessarily bad, it’s just a bit boring, really. There are so many ways to liven up a simple Subway sandwich, but Anna decided that these ingredients would suffice. Swap the cheddar cheese for some feta, and you’ve essentially got yourself a Greek salad on some bread.
There are a couple of explanations as to why Anna thought this would be a good idea. First of all, she was drunk. Second – she is a vegetarian, so meat was out of the question. Let’s face it – cheese, olives and cucumber is not the best combination to order at Subway.
Even without meat, there are so many choices at Subway when it comes to making a sandwich. It’s a place where you can indulge, while also staying healthy. That salad bar has plenty to choose from, and even some sauce would have livened things up slightly. Lettuce, tomatoes, peppers – it’s a herbivore paradise, and had Anna been sober, perhaps she would have been mindful of that.
Social media notoriety
It made people laugh on social media, one person saying that ‘just bread and butter’ would be a better idea for a sandwich than Anna’s drab concoction. Each to their own, and of course everybody has their favourite choices at Subway, but next time Anna goes to the fast-food chain for a sandwich, she might instead choose something different.
