Sandwiches in Review: Arby’s ‘Shroom & Swiss
June 24, 2011
See, I told you I’d be back!! Arby’s latest new menu item is their ‘Shroom and Swiss, a more classic roast beef sandwich. Their “Good Mood Food” brand blends elements of their normal and more upscale “Marketplace” lines, but this one is definitely in the former category.
The most interesting thing about the ‘Shroom and Swiss is that Arby’s has released basically the same sandwich before, as the Steakhouse Sub. There are slight differences, including the titular mushrooms and the style of bun, but from what I can tell, the Swiss cheese, onion straws, and spread are all identical. I liked the Steakhouse Sub a little bit more, mainly because of the shape of the roll, but the mushrooms do add a little bit to the flavor.
A ‘Shroom & Swiss combo runs for about $6. It’s not as good as the Steakhouse Sub, so go with that if they happen to have it at your local Arby’s. If not, it’s still a good sandwich, leagues beyond their recent Angus Three Cheese and Bacon. I just don’t have much to say about it because I’ve said pretty much all of it before.
