Living in Singapore makes us hard to avoid the inevitable hectic and busy lifestyle. Personally as a student, I would try to spend minimal amount of my time to eat so that i get enough time to complete my never ending homework.

Subway is an excellent choice for a place to eat if you are rushing for time and yet wishes to have a filling meal. There is a wide variety of ingredients to choose for your sandwich like choice of vegetables,choice of sauce , they offered combo meals too which are very appealing to us students.

However, I do have a bad experience once in Subway too. The staff actually misheard the type of sandwich that I wanted and I ended up paying for it reluctantly. Perhaps this is because they have such a big variety of ingredients it confuses them sometimes. I recommend people who wishes to eat at Subway to speak loud and clear to the staff so that such a bad experience of me would not happen again to the others.

I love Subway in general because it offers variety, health and can be suited to however way I like it! However, the Subway that I frequent because of its convenient location has made me more than once displeased and frustrated.

When it first opened, I remember patronizing it eagerly only to be greeted by a long beeline of angry customers who rolled their eyes at the slow service of the staff.

I initially gave them the benefit of doubt, believing that it was merely because they were new and inexperienced. I believed that with time, they would improve in their service and efficiency.

However, they gave me disappointment as despite stabilizing for a while now, the service is still as inefficient. Many a times the staff seem like their taking their own sweet time to serve (or even walk to the counters), and unlike other branches I have been to, they clearly do not uphold the name of it being called a "fast food" joint.

I really love Subway, but this branch has really failed in standards and it is advised to only visit at non-peak hours whereby you can have the entire service staff to yourself, but if you are the impatient kind, you might still feel frustration from their seemingly dilly-dally actions.

The food at Subway is always fresh, and made-to-order in front of you. You get to see the whole process to ensure what you are eating is what you are looking at. My personal favourite would be the Cold Cut Trio meat sandwiched in between Hearty Italian bread drizzled with honey mustard and sweet onion sauce. The portion of meat cuts is definitely generous! The meal is priced at $5 all-day along with other featured flavors. You get a 6-inch sub with a regular-sized drink. You can add a dollar to get a cookie of your choice, a cup of yogurt or a packet of mini-sized chips. You also get to choose which vegetables you wish to have more or which you wish to have less or none The type of bread and the type of sauces. Mixing of two or more sauces is also allowed. It is as flexible as it gets.

Together with a drink, you can choose between cookies or chips to complete the meal. I always choose cookies as their soft, moist and chewy cookies are right up my alley. My favorites are the oatmeal raisin flavour and white chocolate macadamia nut flavour.

The whole atmosphere is very inviting. The wafting smell of the toasted bread, the fresh smells of cookies and the whole color coordination of the place. The service personnel are also courteous and clean-up the place promptly. The whole process of making the sandwich might take a little longer than your usual fast-food but the whole process of customization is one that is greatly appreciated and liked by many.

Subway is a fast food chain that could be found in most shopping centres. In Junior College times, I remember my friend bringing me to Subway for the first time. I was quite apprehensive initially, as I am dubious of how a sandwich full of vegetables can actually taste good? But am I glad for my friend's introduction to Subway, because ever since then I fell in love with it! Every time I feel like having a healthy plus delicious meal, I will definitely choose Subway!

In Subway, it works such that you move down the queue slowly, as you choose the kind of bread, the kind of sandwich, whether you want it toasted, vegetables and sauces in order. There is quite a variety of sandwiches available and my favourites are Cold Cut Trio, Egg Mayo and Subway Melt! You can also request for more cheese and meat with additional top-up of $1 or so. Set meals are available too, where you can add on a drink and 2 cookies or a pack of chips. Recently, they brought in yogurt too so you can also choose that to add on to your set meal. If you are a student, then you are in for a good deal. Students can enjoy student meals in the noon, where set meals only cost around $4.90 to $5.90 when normal meals cost around $7 to $9.

However, I find that most Subway outlets do not have a lot of seats available. It would be perfect if there are more seats as eating sandwiches is a messy affair and one cannot simply eat as he walks (for me at least). So, eat fresh now and get your veggies fix here!

A cookie monster would love to bring boxes of cookies back home from Subway.

For cholesterol-seeking individual like me, will shun Subway as much as I could or pick at the veggies and dump them as far as I can.

Not that Subway is bad, but it’s very nutritional! More meat fillings please!

Parmesan Bread has always been my all-time favourite and 6” is more than enough.

Thank GOD there’s a choice to cast the veggies way and command more meat and cheese. Mixing sauces is also one of the fun processes before you witness the grilling of the bread in a few minutes before it gets whisked away at the counter to meet the cookies.

Add $2.70 to complete the meal with cookies or chips.

My meal usually cost around $9.70.

Not quite justifiable for mere bread. However, the freshness and nutritional quality of the meal does make some sense into extra dollars and cents.

It’s really tasty and filling! The two cookies are usually leftover for tea breaks.

Go for this if you are on a health diet.

Promotions are up on daily basis!

Because I'm a sandwich person, I was really keen when I tried Subway for the first time. Was at the Singapore Expo branch. Got the Subway Melt and frankly, I got a shock at the price. It's just a sandwhich right?! $8?!

Anyhow, I dug in I guess the food did make me feel better. They gave healthy servings of vegetables of which I asked for, and together with bacon and ham, yum yum. The service crew recommended sweet onion and mayo for the sauce and as a whole the sandwhich went well!

Nowadays I only get their combo meal of $5. Consist of a 6 inch sandwich and a drink.

Anyhow, I have blacklisted the branch at Dawson Place. Their service there is horrible! Once they gave me three strands of capsicum and when I asked for more, the lady added ONE. Another time another staff, made a mistake and when I pointed it out, she threw the ham back with "the" look on her face... sob sob, but I didn't do anything wrong!

As a veggie hater, I could never understand why would anyone pay a price that is higher than average fast food to eat vegetables. My first order at Subway was a cold cut trio, a poor suggestion on my friend’s part since I disliked vegetables. A lot. It was then that my impression of Subway was formed, and it wasn’t good in any way at all.

Somehow, I had the chance to try their tuna and that bad impression took a 180-degree turn. It was surprisingly delish! My favourite bread was the Hearty Italian for the slight crust. But still, my visits to Subway were not that frequent.

That one moment when I decided that I would be a loyal customer to Subway was the day I took the plunge to go on a diet. Subway was after all supposed to be healthy, right? I went for their grilled chicken breast, with lettuce (Each time when I just ask for lettuce, I am secretly afraid of being judged. Ha!) and sweet onion sauce (minimal calories, how very apt). The bread of choice would be wheat. Total calories would be about 350 calories, which was reasonable for a meal portion.

Till date, the habit remains. I would go for Subway if I am having one of my Feel Fat days. Service is more often than not prompt and efficient.

Subway, currently known for being the only fast food restaurant that is still promoting healthy eating, is one of my favourite. If you want a quick yet relatively healthy meal, heading towards the counter of Subway is the right thing to do!

The concept of letting the customers choosing what sauce, vegetables and bread they prefer to complement their meal is a great! It is just like a DIY (do-it-yourself) factor, but this time it is for food. If i were to recommend to any of my friends the first sandwich they should try in Subway, it would be the Cold Cut trio. Compared to the others of the classic segment, i think that the Cold cut trio is more value for money, as it has meat + vege, a balanced diet. The rest are great too and so are the cookies, freshly baked everyday in subway. i personally prefer the double chocolate chip cookies! As for the bread, the hearty italien bread is great and not too hard on the teeth even after being toasted.

In addition, the service of the staff there are quite good. They are polite, efficient in the food preparation and very friendly. The best part is, Subway has combos that are reasonably priced and cost the same as most fast food restaurants' combos. So why not take an occasionally break from those burgers and head doen to Subway for a healthy meal?

Because there are Subways located in NUS, I always end up eating subway when I end lessons late and every other food outlet is closed. But I have always liked subway’s concept of being able to make your own sandwich by choosing the toppings, bread and so on.

Usually I always take the normal Hearty Italian bread, but recently I decided the try making it into a salad. I could not find the add-on price stated on the menu but I decided to go ahead with it anyway. When I got to the cashier, I was pretty taken-aback at the price of the salad, it is 6.40 for the turkey ham salad. Considering that the vegetables they provide are pretty much the standard, different from the range that salad bars would provide, I felt that it was way too expensive.

When I was eating the salad, I found that the entire thing was just a bed of lettuce and the rest of the vegetables were only given in 4-5 slices. I felt pretty cheated about it as I expected to get more for that price. After this experience I will definitely stick to just buying the bread version of the sandwich. Eaten this way, it tastes way more hearty and fulfilling rather than eating endless amounts of lettuce.

Subway is a place i will go occasionally for their subs, but it's not a place i go often as i think their subs are average.

In terms of pricing, their latest $5 combo meals (which consists of a sub and a drink) have make it more reasonably priced as compared to their normal set meals (which is a sub, a drink and two cookies / chips). This allows me to go for the cheaper option if i do not want to spend so much.

Subway has a number of bread for selection but i find that no matter which one i choose, i do not taste the difference between them. The bread taste ok but there's no indication of a freshly baked smell of flour. The meat choices are probably pretty standard, ham, mayo, tuna etc.

But of course, the main point about subway is their healthy way of eating. With so much different vege to add in, i will always ask the staff to give me all the veg into my sub. To me, the taste of eating all the vegetables probably outweigh the other parts of the sub. I would not recommend eating subway because of its great taste and so on, but for the healthy eating, by all means, do go for subway.
