First opened in here in 1995, Subway has been in Beijing for 12 years, and since spread to other cities around China. For the Chinese, it¡¯s a nice change of pace to the normal Chinese meal. For expats and foreign tourists, it¡¯s a rare venue for old-fashioned authentic sub sandwiches. Especially in a city you cannot find the best sandwich ingredients to make one yourself.
According to the hospitable server, Subway features a daily special each day. Following her recommendation, I ordered the special for that day, a Roasted Chicken Sandwich for a special price of RMB 15. All your favorite vegetables, condiments, and freshly baked bread are available. I personally chose cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, and honey mustard myself.
Prices range from RMB 10 to RMB 30 in 6 inches, and RMB 20 to RMB 45 in 12 inches. For drinks, choose from fresh soups and fountain drinks. They also have ice creams for dessert. In fact, the ice creams are buy-one-get-one-free on Tuesdays.
