Why would I even consider reviewing a sandwich from Subway? There is only one reason. This sandwich contains Subway’s version of Pastrami, the seasoned cousin of Corned Beef.
After a very disappointing experience with the Arby’s Reuben Sandwich, I felt that fast food cured beef deserved another chance. Before I write anymore, let me make a few disclaimers. I only eat at Subway when the only other options are fast food and there is not a better sandwich alternative. Having been raised in Delaware, my standards for subs and hoagies is very high.
Was Big Hot Pastrami Sandwich from Subway repeatable? The answer is “Maybe”. I ordered the six inch option toasted with swiss cheese, then topped with mustard, pickles and tomatoes. The Pastrami may have been a little stringy, but then Pastrami and Corned Beef are supposed to have a little chew to them. Remember, this is not a high end New York style deli. Whether or not the Pastrami was beef is up for debate, but it did have flavor. There was too much yellow mustard but this was Subway and no spicy deli mustard was available. If I was to order this sandwich again it would be double the meat, have them lightly apply the yellow mustard and maybe have only a few pickles and onions added to the sandwich.
