Honestly, this picture doesn’t do
the sandwich’s size any justice!

On my way home tonight, I had to get my sandwich, particularly after regaling people with the story from earlier today. I stopped in at the Union Square Subway Restaurant Subway and I got more than I bargained for. The clerks were so nice and were excited to make, yet another, crazy huge sandwich. As they made it, everyone watched and laughed.

First of all, I learned there is only one size bread, and it’s about 7-8 inches long, and tall. My dinner was at around 8:30pm, so the bread I got seemed a bit old, and not the best sample. So I’ll just say the bread was a bit dry, but you probably shouldn’t rely on that. I got “The Feast” which contained pepperoni, salami, roast beef, turkey breast, and ham; actually, I’m not doing it justice. It contained A LOT of pepperoni, salami, roast beef, turkey breast, and ham. I should’ve weighed it when I got home, but alas, I did not. It had to be a pound and a half of cold cuts. He added Swiss and American cheese (only a few slices) and then toasted it. Afterwards, I selected lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, green peppers, chipotle mayo, and black pepper.

The massive sandwich rang up at $9.47. I lugged it home.

After snapping a picture or two, I started working on the thing. It was huge, I could barely take a bite. But I struggled through, bite after bite, enjoying it thoroughly. Honestly, the proportion of pepperoni to other meats was way out of whack, and I will probably have heart burn later, but it was fun. The last bite felt like crossing a finish line.

This kind of sandwich is almost more of a joke than a real world useful meal. How often I need a 15 pound lunch is beyond me. But we’ll see how long it’s around. As an aside, this is one of the first sandwiches that looks as attractive in real life as it did in the ad (at least before I carried it home). Not all fast food is that way.
