What's your go-to Subway sauce?
Sorry, chipotle, this isn't working...
This evening I was meant to be going to a restaurant for the first time since lockdown. There was going to be wine, oyster toasts to Ben Welham, and when I woke up this morning, I was in a distinctly tiramisu mood.
However, I developed a sore throat and that of course means staying home. And ordering Subway, which I solemnly finished just now.
There are positives, though. I’ve just realised I’ve been doing my sub wrong.
The first time I went to Subway, I panicked at all the questions and as a result, answered rashly. I know I chose Italian herb bread, olives, lettuce, jalapenos, the orangest cheese, and chipotle sauce - because that’s how all my subs have been ordered ever since.
And I’ve been happy. But tonight, alone with my sore throat, I’ve realised chipotle sauce isn’t for me.
For one thing, you should never order anything that you can’t say properly, and though I’ve had plenty of practice, and heard FoodTribe’s Rachael Hogg pronounce it, I have never said chipotle right. I’m also weeping by the time I reach the end of the foot-long sub, which is always a good indicator it’s not the right sauce.
But what should I try instead? Subway is a scary place.
