    it is all good but the problem is 90% of them are just falafel & houmous, PETA should spend more time showing businesses that there are lot more combinations and flavours available as vegan lunch if we want vegan food to become mainstream.

    Didn’t know you could get so many vegan sandwiches – will be looking out for them

    Di they think vegans live off hummus and falafel? This is really a rather dull selection. Also I would never go to a Subway, they use the same hands, wearing the same gloves, to pick up meat and salad.

      You can ask the staff to change gloves, in fact they are meant to do it automatically when you ask for the vegetarian option. So if they forget you can ask and they really don’t mind (at least in all the subways I have been). The trick is to ask before you state which bread you want in order to make sure it’s not too late. This removes most of the cross contamination issues but OK is not bullet proof.

        Subway do not change their gloves when preparing sandwiches or salads with meat to when they prepare food from the salad section. Therefore they transfer a lot of meat and diary over to the salad section all day or for as long as the salad can sit there.

        I would think twice about having anything from here expecting it to have no contact with meat and cheese!

        They will of course change the gloves if you request but that doesn’t change the previous 100 times they’ve contaminated the salad that day. I may actually write to them requesting they improve this.

    Hi, regarding Subway sandwiches, it would be great if you could also list the suitable sauces. As far as I have seen, the marinara, salsa, sweet onion and bbq sauces are suitable :). I also tend to buy crisps (part of meal deal) and shove them inside the sandwich for more crunchiness!

    If you don’t like houmous you’re pretty much screwed then… But it’s a good start and hopefully a wider variety of options will be available soon.

  • David commented on May 12, 2016 at 11:11 pm

    Luckily for me I could live on humous and falafel! I.m addicted to both!!! Haha…..but I agree, it is rather a cop out for large companies.
    What about Roasted Veg and Toffutti cream cheese???? Or a flavoured humous…..such as Caremelised Onion….roasted courgette and pine nuts?

    An imagination….
