SPOTTED ON MENUS – Subway Honey Sesame Steak Melt

Subway Honey Sesame Steak Melt

North Central West Virginia is where Subway is testing their Honey Sesame Steak Melt. According to Jeremy, who sent in the photo, “It’s a choice between the (sliced) chicken or steak and the only the different is the ‘honey sesame sauce’ which is best described as like a peanut type of sauce, something you would get with Chinese food. Basically a new sauce is all it is, but a very good one.” (Spotted by Jeremy in Fairmont, West Virginia.)
