Quiznos, one of Amercia's first toasted sandwich parlour, recently opened three branches in Singapore. FreshGrads finds out exactly what has been drawing the huge crowds of hungry executives, especially during lunch hours.
FreshGrads tried the Mesquite Chicken which was layered with thin slices of bacon coated in melted cheddar and fresh greens and onions all fitted within a plump, fluffy sesame loaf. All meat at Quiznos is freshly sliced by a machine displayed right at the counter and each slice then marinated for a full flavour. Hence, no surprise here that the Mesquite Chicken sandwich gives a delightfully juicy aromatic smoked bite.
The Honey Bourbon Chicken sandwich is more spicy than others. And if that isn't enough, you can have your fill of peppers at the free flow - a favourite word for kiasu Singaporeans - at the seasoning bar, where various sauces, pickles and olives are for the taking.
Quizno's top three sellers are the Zesty Grill Steak on rosemary parmesan (S$6.20 for 6", S$10.90 for 12"), Mesquite Chicken Sandwich (S$5.40 for 6", S$9.50 for 12") and the Honey Bourbon Chicken (S$5.40 for 6", S$9.50 for 12"). A 6" sandwich is a great hearty meal for the average female and add on a salad or one of its fabulously thick soup with a drink for an additional S$2.70, you are sure to be satisfied.
Staff at Quiznos are polite and constantly with a smile on their faces. Sandwiches are served promptly and in an ingeniously designed Q-shaped speech bubble of a tray. What didn't really make sense to us and irked us was that Quiznos does not serve coffee but instead recommends us to join yet another queue for our daily dose Tully Coffee next door.
