NEWS: Subway Testing a Falafel Sandwich That Makes The Veggie Delite Even Less Appealing

Eat Fresh

Subway sandwiches are a healthier fast food alternative to burgers and fries, but the problem I have with them is that, if you put on the same toppings, they aren’t very different than each other in flavor, and their Footlongs make me feel inadequate as a man.

However, in Chicago, Subway has been testing a falafel sandwich.

Some of you might be asking, “What’s a falafel?” While others might be wondering, “Does falafel rhyme with waffle?” A falafel is a deep fried patty (or a ball) made from ground chickpeas and/or fava beans, and it’s served in some kind of flatbread. And, yes, it rhyme with waffle.

The Subway version comes with whatever vegetables a patron wants and a creamy cucumber sauce. The falafel sandwich is slightly more authentic with Subway’s flatbread, but it can also be made with any other type of bread. Because falafels don’t have any meat products, the sandwich is appealing to vegetarians and makes the Subway Veggie Delite look like rabbit food in a bun.

Complete nutrition facts aren’t available, but according to the Subway Falafel Sandwich website, it has no cholesterol or saturated fat.

Currently, it’s only available in Chicago at participating locations.

  1. I probably go to my Subway twice a week for lunch and I’ve never seen anyone order this. It looks seriously gross in all the ads.

  2. Well, here in Israel McDonalds just launched their own falafel wrap… but why buy that when you can get real falafel on every street corner here? It’s totally awesome when done right.

  3. Here is the actual facebook page your want.

    They have full nutrition info which does have lot fat and sodium especially with the cucumber sauce. I don’t know how you could get no fat when you have fried food in the sandwich but the biggest culprit is the cucumber sauce. Also look out for the sodium levels too on this one.

  4. The subway fallafel sandwhich is tasty and i approve. Its pretty tasty. a bit dry so get lots of sauce on it.. Im not a vegetarian but i always love to take breaks from eating meat and eat something with a bean protein source that always digests easilly with plenty of fiber. This sandwhich is affordable and pretty filling and I will be returning. As far as all these vegan and organic lovers here. I love organic food too but lets not forget it always costs double
