10 Subway Items You Can’t Get In America (Part 2)

Restaurants are trying to cash in on the popularity
of ethnic foods. Subway restaurants are no different of course. The only thing is, a
lot of these great-looking sandwiches that they offer aren’t available in the States.
So let’s circle the globe to check out 10 Subway items you can’t get in America part
2. Three Pepper Chicken (New Zealand) At first, this one doesn’t seem all that
special, as it seems to be a chicken tender, deep fried and placed in the fresh roll with
veggies, but a closer look will show you that it is in fact different. What’s the secret?
Nothing really, as it’s right there in the name of the sandwich offered only in New Zealand
… the three peppers. The secret lies in the breading and batter that encrusts the
chicken. It contains a three pepper mixture and the taste takes this tender from being
a simple piece of breaded and fried chicken, which we can pretty much get at our numerous
KFC outlets, it has the added value of the pepper and seasonings. Trust us when we say
that it makes all the difference in the world, and the wonderful people of New Zealand definitely
agree. Herb Sausage (Japan) The sausage roll isn’t the only thing that
Japan uses sausage for, as they also have this tasty little item on the menu, and fans
of herbed and seasoned meat won’t be disappointed when they try the Herb Sausage sandwich at
Subway Japan. It’s served on a bread of your choice and the sausage is seasoned specifically
with basil and oregano, two spices that have been going well together since time out of
mind, especially in Greek and Italian cuisines. The addition of fresh veggies would certainly
take this sandwich over the top and beyond, that’s for sure. Pork Riblet (New Zealand) If you’re one of those that get extremely
excited every time McDonald’s announces the return of the McRib sandwich, then we’d
pay very close attention here if we were you. Subway restaurants in New Zealand actually
offer a sandwich on their menu featuring a succulent riblet and you sure wouldn’t be
disappointed if and when you end up trying this one, as the sauce, the meat and the texture
of the entire sandwich is most assuredly something you’d thoroughly enjoy. But, you actually
don’t have to go all the way to New Zealand to try this one, as certain locations in Canada
offer this bad boy in a similar form. So if you’ve got any buddies north of the border,
have them tell you when this one gets added to the menu, as it might only be seasonal,
and get ready for the road trip of your life. you’ll be on a journey of a different sort,
and one that will satisfy the craving you get every time someone mentions the word ‘rib.’
Hey, it’s profound enough, so go ahead and get the old station wagon ready for the long
haul and head north. And by all means, if you can swing it … why not make the trip
to New Zealand while you’re at it to compare and contrast. Sausage Roll with Cheese (Japan) Japan is considered to be a culinary giant
and they probably have one of the top five more famous and accepted cuisines the world
over. But of course, they didn’t get there without a little borrowing from other cuisines,
like most. And they too have a plethora of fast food joints in their crowded cities.
McDonald’s is a big seller, but Subway too has its very own niche. Among the many different
sandwiches we’ve seen offered at Subway Japan, they offer one of the simplest concepts
known to man, and it comes in the form of sausage rolls. If you’re anything like us,
then the sausage roll is definitely something you enjoy. Maybe it’s in its simplicity,
or the exquisite taste of the pork sausage, but people get wicked cravings for these things,
no matter how cheap and simple they are. Picture a particular waitress passing around a platter
of sausage rolls, or rather pigs in blankets, as they are also known, and you can’t seem
to fight the urge to pop a few in your mouth, even though it very well might spoil your
dinner. Well, it’s this urge that the people at Subway Japan wish to inspire in their clientele,
and we’d say that it has worked famously. Even we are thinking of mounting an expedition
to the gorgeous country and give this one a try. It’s served with a lot of cheese
and fresh veggies on flatbread, rolled delightfully to entice one and all. Green Peas Patty (India) Now we’ve all heard of mushy peas, and they
really go a long way with deep-fried fish and a side of ‘chips,’ but for peas to
be the actual star of the dish, that’s a whole other thing altogether, isn’t it.
Apparently not, for the people at Subway, as they’ve made the wonderful green pea
the central focal point of one of their sandwiches. But don’t get too excited, as it’s only
available in India. So if you’re not willing to travel land and sea to give this one a
shot, sadly you won’t be enjoying it anytime soon, we’re afraid. The peas simply aren’t
sauteed and added to the sandwich though. They are formed into cakes, or patties if
you will, and lightly breaded and fried. Now if you haven’t ever tried a fried pea, then
you surely are missing something, as the frying process definitely brings out a new flavor
in the tiny little balls of healthy goodness, and you won’t have all that hard a time
convincing the little ones to eat them this way. These sandwiches are a huge hit in India,
where vegetarian cuisine is certainly considered big business. But if you want to try them
and pair them up beside the steak you were planning on making later this week, they shouldn’t
be all that hard to make. Corn and Peas (India) In staying with the whole ‘peas’ thing,
we’ve got yet another Subway item found in India exclusively, and this time, the peas
aren’t pureed and formed into a patty, but they are left in the form we’d expect them
to be in. The mixture here is sort of a succotash if you will, combining peas, corn, and even
red bell peppers, all combined in a secret sauce which is described as an eggless mayonnaise.
Succotash usually combines beans, corn and peppers (among other ingredients), only here,
the eternal pea is the star ingredient and the addition of the sauce differentiates it
from the classic age old dish. In this sandwich, the result is yet another vegetarian offering
that has the clientele in India jumping for joy. Reports state that it is in fact delicious,
even though it would sound quite bland to carnivores the world over; yet it is a nice
light, yet filling sandwich. Too bad it isn’t available here in North America. Cheese Roasted Chicken with Mushroom (Japan) While we’re on the important subject of
fine dining and the succulent cuisine that saturates the industry, how about cheese roasted
chicken with mushrooms? Sounds like a new offering at some gourmet restaurant by an
up and coming chef, doesn’t it? It certainly does, and it is once again the marvelous folks
at Subway Japan that have decided to offer this recipe in the form of a Subway sandwich.
Here they are, once again bringing the gourmet to the fast food industry, combining flavors
you wouldn’t expect to get at a Subway restaurant, essentially a fast food joint of all places.
And although the food is mass-produced and many would argue that that cheapens the product
and lowers the quality of the food considerably, we’d still argue that it would be a mighty
tasty sandwich to give a try. So … if you happen to stop by Japan on your next trip
around the world, give it a whirl, why don’t you. Mexican Bean Patty (India) Leave it to the wonderful people of India
to consistently find new ways to make vegetarian eating, good, healthy and interesting. They
definitely went the extra mile with this one, meshing their own culinary styles and by borrowing
from the tasty and epic cuisine known Tex-Mex. Tex-Mex is a vastly popular cuisine and the
many burritos, tacos, enchiladas and other dishes have delighted millions upon millions
for centuries. In India alone, this particular sandwich here is available, and the star ingredient
is none other than the bean. It’s formed into a patty, much like the pea patty we saw
earlier. It too is breaded and deep fried, and as we’ve learned from so many other
epic vegetarian dishes from all sorts of cuisines around the world … veggies can go a long
way in establishing that ‘Wow Factor’ to the foods we eat. Beans are in fact one
of the main ingredients used when making vegetarian burger patties, and along with eggplant, mushrooms
and of course lentils, veggie burgers sure have come a long way and actually taste pretty
good—depending on which sort you buy of course. But beans pack a nutritious punch,
and a big one at that, as they are high in fiber and extremely high in protein, and the
carbohydrates they offer are the good sort, so beans are also quite popular among vegetarian
bodybuilders and fitness buffs. And as we’ve mentioned, they are extremely common in the
Mexican, Tex-Mex and Indian cuisines. Basil Oven Potatoes (Japan) Now sides at most North American Subway locations
are pretty important, and there are many offered across the continent. Soup being the main
one, of course, and that sure makes a lot of sense, seeing that people have been pairing
soup and a sandwich for quite a number of years now, and it’s a trend that seems to
work quite famously. Most locations have a soup of the day or offer more than that at
times as well, especially during colder periods. They also have salads and of course an assortment
of chips, particularly Baked Lays for those out there trying to eat a tad healthier. Now
speaking of healthy side options, they’re pretty hard to find at most fast food restaurants,
as the most commonly offered side dish are french fries, but what if we told you you
could get healthy baked potatoes for your side dish when ordering a combo at Subway?
Don’t get too excited, though, as these puppies aren’t available in our own backyard,
but they are available in … you guessed it: Japan! That country, more than any other
country in the world, has some pretty interesting menu options at its Subway restaurants, as
we’ve clearly seen, and these seasoned roasted potatoes are just another mouth-watering example. Chicken Seekh (India) The incredible cuisine found in India is at
times hard to beat. Perhaps there is no other cuisine that blends fresh vegetables, proteins
and incredibly floral and tantalizing spices to make some of the most savory and explosive
dishes known to man. For some, the cuisine is tad too spicy, but hey, a little spice
never hurt anybody, or so we hope. So, while we’re on this kick, why not spice up our
lives a tad and take a look at this sandwich offered exclusively at Subway restaurants
in the beautiful country that is home to the Taj Mahal (the real one), among other culturally
rich landmarks. It is in their Chicken Seekh sandwich that they unleash some of their most
traditional culinary styling and recipes. It’s as old and as tenured as the cuisine
itself and actually sounds really good. But to understand the sandwich and what it offers,
first we’ve got to understand what Seekh is in the first place. The recipe is an interesting
study in the way Indians prepare the succulent foods and dishes they’re famous for. Firstly,
Seekh can be made with a wide variety of meats, but here, the star protein is none other than
chicken, so the recipe calls for a grinding of the chicken meat, chili flakes, ginger,
garlic, coriander, cumin, garam masala (which is a blend of many spices in one), salt,
and lemon juice. The process continues from there and to the mix you already have, onion,
bread crumbs, eggs and oil are added, and you do the grinding process once again. It
is then set aside to cool. It is essentially the end result from this combination of ingredients
that is known as Seekh, and it’s this that is available in the form of a Subway sandwich.
So, it’s definitely cultural and stays true to the foods and spices indigenous to the
territory in which it’s offered. And it certainly sounds good, doesn’t it? We’ve got more great videos for you to fill

  1. Unlike a lot of foods from different chains not available at US locations, these don't seem like they would be too difficult or take too long to make in comparison.

  3. That sausage sandwich looks awesome! The only problem with Subway is that things look awesome and they sound awesome but when you actually get to the finished product it's a whole other story. Nothing is freshly made they basically just nuke everything and it just doesn't live up to the hype. It might taste okay but it still will let you down if you set your expectations based on the commercials or details.
