Item: Chicken Tandoori Deli ChoicesPrice: $4.95
Location: Queen Victoria Market
No confusion over what I wanted today. I asked for the Chicken Tandoori sandwich and she knew what I was saying and I got it. It took a while to get, but I was there at around 12:45, so I understand some chaos.
It comes in the same wrapping as the Roast Beef & BBQ Sauce sandwich, and despite knowing the more orthodox method of opening the wrapper, I did it the same way I did yesterday because damn it, it's easier.
It had a pretty strong smell of "tandoori" that was slightly off-putting, but as I took a bite, it was overcome. Same sort of roll as yesterday too, everything pretty standardised fresh. No "holy fuck this is gross" moments. The chicken was nice and smothered in tandoori sauce and it tasted like how tandoori should I guess, not that I'm much of an Indian cuisine expert. The cucumbers were nice and crunchy and the tomato surprisingly tasty. The tomato at Subway (EAT FRESH) totally lacks flavour and is more like biting into a soft fibrous ice block.
No dripping sauce or mayo on this occasion, so it's neater and easier to eat. It's also only $4.95, cheaper than the rest, for a reason unknown to me. It's the same size as the Roast Beef sandwich and seems to contain just as much filling.
I give it a 7/10 simply because tandoori isn't one of my favourite flavours and it did lack a certain strength. It was pretty plain, the only flavour being the tandoori. If you're into tandoori, you'll get more of a kick out of it than I did. (I think I set a record for the most mentions of tandoori in a blog post)
