Sandwiches in Review: Subway Seafood Sensation
February 25, 2010
This next review is an interesting one. Subway offers a sandwich called the Seafood Sensation, consisting of a blend of crab meat and Alaskan Pollack. Researching the sandwich, however, was no mean feat. The Seafood Sensation is not listed anywhere on Subway’s official website. As far as I know, all other sandwiches are on there, including “sub of the week” types. I was finally able to scrape together some information (including the ingredients) from a couple of international and franchise Subway sites. On a number of these, the Seafood Sensation is referred to as a “regional or limited offer product.” Since I don’t frequent Subway all too often, I have no idea if this is a limited time offer, if the location I visited is unique in offering it, or what.
I hope the Seafood Sensation isn’t a limited time offer, because it’s one of the best subs I’ve ever had from Subway. I think a lot of why it worked was in what I included. The promotional picture shows all kinds of veggies. I would caution against this. When I was ordering the sandwich, I wanted the seafood blend to speak for itself. I included lettuce and mayo, but I didn’t add tomatoes, peppers or anything else, and I stand by that decision. I would also advise against ordering cheese on it, since cheese generally has an even stronger flavor than most veggies. The sandwich was delicious. The seafood blend was flavorful, and included a lot of genuine crab meat. The other ingredients added to the overall taste but didn’t overpower the meat. The sub was a foot-long, and cost under $5.00. I don’t know if this is the usual price, or even if this sub is generally available, but if it is in your area, I would highly recommend picking one up.
EDIT: I’ve gotten conflicting reports/anecdotes on whether or not the seafood blend in the sub contains real crab or not. My advice is that if you’re allergic to shellfish, don’t risk this sandwich. Sandwichtalk assumes no responsiblity for allergic reactions caused by the Subway Seafood Sensation.
