Are you craving a meatloaf sandwich? Be sad that you don’t live in Japan, where Subway has introduced a meatloaf submarine sandwich. We don’t understand how this is a thing in a fast-food environment where there’s no leftover meatloaf to use up.
Putting a meatloaf sandwich on menus in the United States is at least plausible. Maybe not this particular version, which includes way more vegetables than most Americans could cope with: peppers, soybeans, bamboo shoots, and mushrooms. Any plant-based foods beyond onions and ketchup and it wouldn’t register as meatloaf to most people here.
Another limited-time offering at Subway in Japan has layers of prosciutto and potato anchovy salad. Depending on your food preferences, that will either sound like an unspeakable horror or amazing.
