Tilapia Melt from No. 7 Sub, $9
STUFF INSIDE :: tilapia, havarti, shredded cabbage, fried garlic
I’m utterly impressed about how often No. 7 changes up their menu. On any given day, they have like two or three sandwich specials that sound just as delicious as the next. This leads to a total #firstworldproblem where you spend ten minutes debating the merits of duroc pork vs. Mongolian tofu in your head, while simultaneouly trying to check-in to 4square on your iPhone. Then a starving street urchin with emphysema, teleports from 1890s London, punches you in the face and snaps you back into reality. This day, I decided on the tilapia melt and wasn’t disappointed. As the fish flaked, the havarti melted its way into every crevice. The shredded cabbage added a nice crunch, while the fried garlic brought smokiness. If you’ve been to No. 7, you know their subs are not small. But this sandwich was comparatively pretty light. Light enough that I was able to go for a run two hours later. In your face, Jared and your stupid $5 footlong.
