As I was walking to school last week, I noticed a large banner at Subway. The banner said something along these lines: Subway’s NEW Falafel Sandwich. Great for vegetarians! I’m always willing to try any vegetarian choices that any restaurant, especially fast food put on their menu. I thought it was great that Subway wanting to appeal to vegetarians and vegans by giving us more choices! I mean, a sandwich full of vegetables can get a little boring at times. Haha =)
I usually pack my own lunch everyday for school but didn’t purposely pack it yesterday so I can try this new falafel sandwich. I was excited because I don’t eat subway very often but from the outside, it smelt toasty and delicious. I ordered my sandwich. Got falafel balls, provolone cheese, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cucumber sauce and toasted!
My review: It was a big let down. It was not flavorful AT ALL. SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO DRY. I would never get it again. You’re better off with a vegetable or cheese sandwich. I had to add hummus to mine to compensate for the DRYNESS. Props for subway thinking of providing more vegetarian choices but FAIL.
Have you guys tried it? What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
