Now, because the sandwich oven can’t get no lovin’, walks around dog-faced and hurt, Subway has added a new appliance to its Canadian locations. Don’t get me wrong, I can always dig into a righteous Cubano on fresh-pressed Cuban bread…but you ain’t gonna see that at Subway, son! In fact, three of its four paninis are basically the same sammies you can get off the regular menu, albeit on ciabatta–so I went for the one that’s different:
Subway’s “chicken” cordon bleu comes with big ol’ chunks of I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-chicken, sliced ham, Swiss cheese, tomato and spinach–cuz you can’t put lettuce in a panini press, bro! They actually heat it in the sandwich oven first, then put ‘er in the press to get the bread nice and crispy. And while I do dig me some hot bread, and the hot tomato and melted cheese go nice together…I couldn’t help thinking that this would be so much better if they used chicken that wasn’t 47 per cent soy!!!!
