Hubbub Sandwiches: When Sandwiches become Salads

Diana Chan October 16, 2011 Downtown, Sandwich, Three Beakers

It was another weekly Wednesday at lunch and all the co-op students at my work place love to go out and eat! Since I haven’t been to Hubbub sandwiches yet, I thought it would be a great place to take them. Everyone loves sandwiches (hopefully) and they are famous for their sandwiches. 

Even when you’re waiting in line to order or waiting for your food to come out, you can read a little bit about their story and their sandwiches. 

There are a few seats, but it can get busy, so it might be good to arrive early or just take out. You can also order online too.

The menu is quite straight forward, choose the protein you want and then you can add additional sides or a drink.

I decided to get all 3 items to get the full experience but, it did cost quite a bit.

Albacore tuna Sandwich has black sesame crusted albacore tuna with mango, avocado, chipotle aioli and arugula. AvocadoGirl really loved this sandwich since the tuna was lightly seared…since she’s also a huge fan of avocados, she obviously liked it.

This was one of their special sandwiches of the day, so it’s not on their regular menu, but if you see it, you should definitely order it. 

Pork Sandwich ($8.49) Marinated spicy and tender pork, pickled jalaenos, creamy garlic sauce, romaine lettuce, cilantro, carmalized onions on a toasty baguette.

MeatLover said this sandwich was really good but it was quite spicy.

Chicken Breast Sandwich ($8.93), Chicken breast steeped in citus and coconut milk with  pickled jalaenos, creamy garlic sauce, romaine lettuce, cilantro, carmalized onions on a toasty baguette.

I loved the other ingredients in the sandwich, but I found the chicken to be a bit dry. I probably wouldn’t order this again and go with something more saucy.

Potato Chips ($1.99) are local BC grown potatoes. It is all natural and contains no trans-fats. I love these chips! They were really crunchy and not too salty. So much better than any other chips I’ve had.

Overall, it was a good experience for all! The 3 of us found the sandwiches pretty awesome and better than Meat & Bread. I saw other people have the salad option instead of having their sandwich in bread … it looked quite amazing…so I think I need to go back to try it again!

 Words of Wisdom:

  • Gluten Free option: Turn the sandwich into a salad
  • Take out option and order online
  • Most seatings in 2’s and 4’s
  • Slightly pricey
  • Pork and the albacore tuna seemed good
