With the recent announcement of Singapore reverting to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), this year’s National Day celebrations are going to be a bittersweet affair. Thankfully, Subway is here to add some extra sweetness with their new Pandan Cookies and Rendang Subs.
This is the first-ever local flavour pairing that Subway is introducing into Singapore. Some special items to celebrate a special occasion.
The Rendang Subs and Pandan Cookies can be found at all Subway outlets in Singapore, starting from 21 July 2021 to 28 Sep 2021.
Subway is offering the Rendang Sub in two varieties — Chicken (S$7.30/6 inch, S$12.30/footlong) and Beef (S$7.90/6 inch, S$12.90/footlong).
Subway wants to hit customers with the aromatic and familiar taste of rendang, making theirs from a mixture of chilli, onion, turmeric, ginger, garlic, coconut, tamarind, lemongrass, and more.
The ingredients are supposed to render the meat soft and juicy, just like how Rendang should be. Unless you’re British, then Rendang is supposed to be crispy.
Whilst you can customise your Rendang Sub in classic Subway fashion, Subway recommends pairing it with cheddar, mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumber, mixed pepper, and onions to let the rendang shine.
One good thing about Subway’s new sub is that they will match the first 10,000 subs and distribute the same amount to staff and volunteers.
These include those working at places such as vaccination centres, testing centres and the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID). This is part of Subway’s initiative to help in Singapore’s push for all residents to be vaccinated.
While the Rendang sub was also released in Subways in Malaysia last week, the Pandan Cookie (S$1.40) is a new addition to the menu here.
The Pandan Cookie is naturally sweetened and chewy with a dose of pandan fragrance. It is described as the perfect pairing with the Rendang Sub for a truly fragrant and decadent experience.
Just in time for National Day, these interesting new items can be nice familiar treats in these stressful times. Coupled with the good gesture that will benefit our front liners, it might be worth it to get some as delivery for your WFH lunches.
