Good morning, good afternoon and good evening. This is Frederick cabanas the head English teacher at SAA Global and today it’s how to order lunch in Singapore Subway.
People don’t know it but Subway is very well organized and it always starts out with what’s your bread do you want six-inch or footlong.
After that, you got to choose do you want to say meat and what toppings? what type of cheese do you want? But the important things is to let the guy know or the woman know do you want toast or no toast. If you say toast they’ll put it in the oven and bake it for 5 seconds. I usually like no toast because I don’t like all the crunchy side.
After that, they move along to the veggies and you could say all veggies or vegetables or you can choose which vegetables that you like. I don’t like green chillies in my sandwiches but a lot of people do so they’ll either say green chillies or have jalapeno and then it moves on and you can choose your sauces and squeeze it up. You can say double say double they will do two times instead of one.
Now there’s a thing called off the menu. Off the menu mean it’s under the counter and nobody can see it and one thing that I like to do it. It’s off the menu is I ask for pepper so they take out a little shaker from underneath the counter and they’ll do a couple of shakes and nice black pepper.
The other thing that’s off the menu that you may not know is you can ask for oil sometimes olive oil and you can ask for vinegar if you can do black pepper oil or vinegar it’s very healthy it’s good for this but remember it’s off the menu may not have black pepper, may not have oil, may not have red vinegar. Some places have it some places don’t.
After that comes to the last thing they always ask you, do you want a set? Sets may be an extra $1 $2 and you get a drink and you can choose either the bag of chips or a couple of cookies.
American English is cookies. British English is biscuits but because Subway owned by an American company they say cookies. For myself, I don’t like sugar, so I usually ask for green tea which is common in Singapore but not in other Western countries. Well see you next time, this is Fredrick
