Sandwiches in Review: A couple Quiznos Sandwiches (and a soup)

December 15, 2009

Quiznos is a sub franchise known for their oven-toasted subs.  They are Subway’s major competitor worldwide.  They are also awesome.

Let me explain why I love Quiznos so much.  As I said before, I have issues with Subway’s method of marketing sandwiches.  I feel they lack direction.  Quiznos is the opposite end of the spectrum.  Quiznos sandwiches mix meats and cheeses with interesting sauces, spreads and vegetables.  When eating them, one understands that a chef somewhere created this recipe for others to enjoy, as opposed to leaving ingredients out and making customers fend for themselves.  The other beautiful aspect of Quiznos is the variety of sandwich sizes.  In addition to the standard small/medium/large paradigm, Quiznos features a long, thin Torpedo sandwich, a stouter Bullet sandwich, as well as a wide Flatbread option.  This allows patrons to order exactly how much sandwich they want.  No longer will they have to worry about not finishing the meal or going hungry.

The first sandwich I tried was the Pesto Turkey Torpedo.  The Pesto Turkey consists of turkey, mozzarella cheese, lettuce and tomatoes, as well as a Basil Pesto spread and a Red Wine vinaigrette dressing.  The dressing and spread complemented one another well, and the mozzarella cheese added to the flavor without being overwhelming.  The lettuce could have been a bit fresher, but overall it was delicious.  The combo I ordered also came with a cup of Broccoli Cheese soup.  While soup is generally outside of this blog’s purview, I have a special affinity for Broccoli Cheese, and let me just say that this soup had a refreshingly sour hint to it, and is a great complement to any sandwich.

This is actually a different Quiznos Turkey Sub, but you get the idea.

 The other sub I had was the Turkey Bacon Guacamole.  Being a sucker for both bacon and guacamole on pretty much anything, this sub was right up my alley.  In addition to the aforementioned items, it included mozzarella, lettuce, tomatoes (starting to see a pattern here?), red onions, and Ranch dressing.  The Ranch and guacamole were a great combination, another example of Quiznos’ expertise in combining sauces and spreads.  Overall, Quiznos is a top-notch sandwich eatery where all sorts of meals are available for under $10 a pop.
