This morning, I woke up really wanting a good Vietnamese submarine. I didn’t want to go all the way to my favorite place in Chinatown, so I decided to give Tang Toasted Subs & Grill a try.
It wasn’t as I hoped for… as my expectations were really high — however, the sub was flavorful with it’s sauce from the chicken. I had the Satay Chicken, and my husband had the Mega Sub (Sate Chicken and Beef). I think the actual sub bun wasn’t as fresh or something. Usually when you toast bread, it’s got a distinctive taste and smell, which these subs seems to be lacking. The carrots weren’t actually pickled, or it was just really lightly done… or the carrot sticks were too large. You couldn’t taste the “pickled” part of it, which usually adds to the taste of a Vietnamese Sub.
We did see a lot of their customers eating the rice bowls, which really was just vermicelli bowls, and they looked like they were enjoying themselves! I guess if I was in that area, I would go in to give it a try too! 🙂
Regardless, it’s a great place for a quick cure! And, a place I will return to try other selections which I didn’t get to this time.
We were going to get drinks, as both of us love bubble tea — however, they do not use fresh fruits, as you can see the powders they use. Neither of us are fans of powder bubble tea, so we opted out this time. They called these drinks smoothies at Tang.
