Subway Sandwiches @ E-Gate
[tag]Penang[/tag] has a new restaurant franchise now – Subway. [tag]Subway[/tag] sells sandwiches and salads, a healthy alternative to fatty fast food. To date, there are only 6 Subway restaurants in Malaysia, with 5 of them in Kuala Lumpur. I have always wanted to try Subway’s sandwiches since I saw its restaurants in One Utama and Wisma Uoa, that was like 6 months ago.. So no doubt I am quite excited about Subway’s latest restaurant opening in [tag]E-Gate[/tag].
On a Friday afternoon the restaurant was jam packed, customers were queueing till the entrance from the sandwich counter. The interior of Subway E-Gate resembles the design of American restaurants, using red bricks and bright lighting.
There are 4 steps in creating your own Subway sandwich. First, you have to choose the bread from Wheat, Italian, Parmesan Oregano or Harvest Wheat – you can opt for six inch or a foot long. Then, select your choice of Subway meal from the menu board. There are 12 Subway meals available in Malaysia, categorized into Classics, Hot Subs and Basics. Then, the Sandwich Artist (the person who prepares your sandwich) will prepare the orders right before you. After that, choose your sandwich’s vegetable from onions, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, green peppers and black olives. Lastly, choose your preferred sandwich dressing. It can a combination of cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, thousand island dressing or pepper. The sandwich preparation process is very interesting and I recorded it in a video lol.
We paid an extra RM3.50 that upgraded our meal to a Subway meal. A Subway meal has a soft drink and a choice of chips or cookie. We wanted to opt for the cookie but it was sold out due to the crowd.. Too bad, the cookie looked nice, Mr.Potato chips is available everywhere FYI, it costs RM1 to refill soft drinks here.
This is how my [tag]sandwich[/tag] looked like, its called the Italian BMT (Biggest, Meatiest, Tastiest) @ RM9.80. I chose mayonnaise and mustard as the dressing.
Turkey Breast and Ham sandwich, RM9.80 – this tasted better than Italian BMT.
The fillings were too much to hold in the bread :drool:

Ayam Penyet AP, an affordable restaurant serving the delicious and addictive Indonesian cuisine called Ayam Penyet, loosely translated to smashed fried chicken. It is a perfect alternative to the already over-mushroomed kopitiam franchises. Not only the quality is getting worse, portion is getting smaller and prices are always increasing. Imagine, after I finished my cuppa

Old Green House restaurant (老青屋) is a popular place among Penangites to have Hokkien Mee (or Prawn Noodle in other Malaysian states) either as dinner or supper. Although the noodle is also available in the morning at another ‘day shift’ stall, most of the working people only have the opportunity to savor it after working

For a cheap and tasty meal, D Kuang Seafood Restaurant at Kampung Baru (Bukit Mertajam) would be a great choice. Here, a dinner for a family of four would cost only a little over RM50 and you could have five dishes inclusive of seafood, meat and vegetable. Sounds good? Read on. Kung Pao Mantis Prawn
