Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Subway Hot Chicken Gravy and Stuffing Confirmed sighting: Subway Hot Chicken Gravy and Stuffing
Posted: 22:38 Thu 04-Dec-2008. Price: about 3.69.
Snackspot reports: Site regular Lee Maguire didn't rate their Mediterranean Veg "Manager's Special", but Subway are at least foraging into Fuzzy's Grub territory with this tentatively-seasonal sandwich - the filling is intriguing but, in the absence of roast potatoes or peas, it's unclear which salad options or sauces go best with it, or whether you should have it toasted with cheese?

Faced with these bewildering decisions, I'd probably plump for McDonald's Chicken Fiesta, which adventurously includes "crispy nachos topped off with a salsa sauce and a sour cream and chive sauce" in its cheese-topped Focaccia bun, and is the only real innovation on McDonald's festive menu for 2008, considering they wheeled out the Big Cheese With Bacon last year.

...Other credit-crunch-friendly possibilities for your office party include: Ginsters' Mini Festive Rolls ("fresh British pork sausagemeat with cranberries, orange zest and spices"); a couple of additions to Pret A Manger's menu; or - if you're really splashing out - Starbucks' Turkey Feast Panini, which they semi-gramatically claim "Christmas is magical... so to make it even more special we have MADE FOR YOU".

Comment: To be clear, "Manager's Special" isn't an awful sandwich, but witnessing the preparation is an integral part of the sub experience. When it appears that your choice of bread is being smeared with the stuff they feed RoboCop ("a rudimentary paste that sustains his organic systems") it does detract somewhat.

Comment: Did you also see the "knife found in sub" story?;

Comment: My local pub used to do a roast chicken and gravy sandwich on crusty white bread. Add lettuce and cheese for near perfection.....although I find entering a Subway a harrowing experience. That maybe cos my local one is in Slough though.

Comment: The 'festive' Subs are back, but at £3.49 for a 6"er I'd much rather go for one of normal 'Sub of the Days' which you can pile high with salad and sauces
