Spurred by the need to observe a low-carb diet, taking into account that I was not in the mood to drive (it’s a Ringgit away by RapidKL bus anyway) and coupled with the fact that Cat need to get something from here, we found ourselves at Fahrenheit 88 again (we were here a few weeks ago).
 
a quiet eatery on a quiet Sunday afternoon

After the debacle with the branch at Jalan Raja Laut yesterday my longing to have a meal at Subway was finally fulfilled. On a Sunday afternoon this particular branch of Subway looked really forlorn, and we were the only diners here. Brendan promptly ordered the foot-long Ham and Cheese sandwich while Cat and I had the six inch Chicken Teriyaki sandwich. When asked for a healthier alternative, the counter personnel recommended that we try the Parmesan Oregano Bread.

I'd try the heart warming soup next time

we had the 'Magical Sunday'

eat fresh?


The verdict? The only draw for me is the high fibre, rough and grainy textured health-conscious breads and salads, more of a novelty rather than a functional alternative. Being a firm Malaysian, I’d rather stick to three spoonfuls of rice a day (as the doctor ordered) than seek healthier bread-based alternatives. We do see ourselves coming here off and on (more off than on) but even once a month would be quite a bit of a stretch for our (very Asian) taste buds. And the damage? All in it came to an amenable RM41.85, within the range (but not the palate) of the everyday food for the everyday person.
