The Subway addiction continues. Today I had the WORST craving for another Subway sandwich, so I went to the franchise down the street from the office. (There are seriously like 20 Subway stores in Lahore; they’re like McDonalds in New York City.) Based on my two visits in the last 24 hours, here are the following recommendations I will make should you ever find yourself inclined to visit a Subway in Pakistan:The quality of the veggie toppings is quite high: the tomatoes a deep red, the green peppers positively shining with color, and the red onions sliced fresh and looking vibrant. This may be because the franchises are not importing their produce, but are getting it locally. This seems like a good place to ignore that warning about not eating raw fruits and vegetables in Pakistan.

How cute is the Ramadan Subway sandwich special:
For your chips on the side, your choices are Lay’s in French Cheese, Salt & Vinegar, and Sour Cream & Onion. French Cheese is better than it sounds.The employees wear those little plastic gloves like in the U.S. I have never seen these gloves anywhere else, at any restaurant in Pakistan. Full hand touching is the norm.

No ice in the soda machine. But the soda comes out cold, so really, who needs it?
