I remember my good friend Patrick telling me that there are good fast food restaurants and “less good ones”!
Fast food, when good enough, is much appreciated when in a hurry, and the more for it if it is reasonably healthy!
SUBWAY has many diners in Shizuoka and all over the country and abroad, but the one which opened very recently just right of the north exit of the Shizuoka JR Railway Station is a winner!
I do not make a habit of patronizing diners (I will not cite names…) but I was happy to discover the place yesterday much in a hurry as I was for lunch!
All signs and menus are bilingual (no mistakes!), a sign of good business sense.
The above board advertizes the fact that one variety of sandwich is offered at a discount price every day! Another good way to have customers sample everything!
You do not have to be inside to check the menu and decide your order!
And they use fresh local lettuce!
Even at 2:00 p.m. the place was busy but everything went smoothly and more quietly than expected!
Transparency is always appreciated!
Efficient and quick service.
The staff will always ask you if there are vegetables you do not like.
The sandwiches are made entirely in front of you!
Incidentally, you can choose from 4 types of bread, as they are or toasted on order!
I noticed many businessmen and well-heeled travelers, always a good sign.
You can either eat onsite inside or under a parasol outside, or buy a take-out order.
I ordered Cheese Bulgorgi Sandwich with Homard Lobster Bisque Soup!
Another good mark for hygiene!
My Bisque soup!
I must admit I was favorably surprised by this fast food rendition of a French delicacy!
Note that the bread used in Japan by Subway is always comparatively soft but certainly not soggy!
I wish all diners could take note!
By the way, their fried potatoes are oven-cooked, which means no pervasive oil smells!
Definitely a model for the genre!
