Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Tonight Luida and I went to Subway to try one of their sandwiches. Subway three weeks ago opened their second outlet in Dominica,the first being at Ross University. Guess we Dominicans are alike all, the idea of driving all the way to Portsmouth for an overprice sandwich…is not so cool 🙁 So the only option was to open an outlet in the capital city Roseau.

What makes Subway so great I’m not sure! Maybe because everything is made fresh, unlike KFC and McDonald’s process foods. I guess tonight is the night to find out.

Waiting Line

The waiting area is not that big nor is the whole restaurant, for the few minutes I stood in the line I could observe the line stretching way back. On a busy day the restaurant could get fill very easy, that’s why most customers order their sandwiches to go.

Couldn’t decide my order; so many subs to choose from…should I go ahead the Subway Melt which has Turkey breast, Ham, Bacon, cheese and standard veggie. Or the Italian B.M.T Sub.This menu is a bit intimidating.

Finally, I went with the Italian B.M.T Sandwich, comes with Pepperoni, Genoa Salami and Ham.

All in all the Italian B.M.T is a great tasting sandwich, but the bread is a bit to soft for my liking, and a little too pricey for my part. The B.M.T will set you back EC$21.50 for a foot-long or EC$10.75 for the 6 inch size. Next time maybe I will try the Subway Melt – which comes with turkey beast, Ham and Bacon. And only set you back Ec$19.00 or Ec12.50 for the 6 inch or there always the popular Tuscan Chicken sandwich. On a price stand point, its a bit to expensive and takes out the meaning of value meal. For example the foot-long sub cost on an average $20.00ecd plus drinks $7.00ecd. On average you will send $27.00(US$10.00) I was still hungry after sharing the sandwich with liuda.

Subway is located on the corner of Kennedy Avenue and Independence street, on the same street with Perkys Pizza coming into town. So if you’re in Roseau …try a sub …besides the high prices it’s much healthy than eating KFC. 🙂

Subway, along with KFC, McDonalds, Burger King, et al, are part of the scourge that we in the USA call “junk food” restaurants. They have replaced individually owned shops, and they purvey unhealthy food. The price is low for the USA but high for elsewhere. In NY City, an entire chain has been shut down due to rat infestations. These types of businesses make everyplace in the USA look the same. They have corporate owners, but they grow by using the sweat and investment money of franchisees. We have been to Beijing, China, where the local people call McDonalds “the American embassy”. Good people, eat Dominican food — it costs far less and is far, far better for you. And, the profits stay in Dominica.
