Ever since the 49 got re-routed near Metrotown, I’ve been passing by Paul’s Sub Shop. They are a small casual joint that, as the name suggests, specializes in sandwiches, although they do also serve up various breakfast/lunch items. I had their Bacon Double Cheese Steak and Super Sub to go.
6″ Bacon Double Cheese Steak ($10):
This contained bacon, cheese, and ribeye steak, along with mayonnaise and barbeque sauce. I did have this to go, and unfortunately, the bread did get a soggy from being wrapped in foil. That was okay though, for I do actually like softer bread over crispy. Although it didn’t really look very big, it was quite heavy and loaded with filling. The meats were tender and flavourful, and I really enjoyed the barbecue sauce, which provided a great sweetness to accompany the salty meats.
6″ Super Sub ($10):
This contained steak, salami, capocollo and mushrooms. The sandwiches were seriously over-stuffed: I actually had trouble eating it since I’ve got a smaller mouth. The meats were all very flavourful and savoury, without being overly salty. Again, the bread did get a little soggy from the trip home, but was still tasty and actually held up well to all the filling.
I quite enjoyed the sandwiches at Paul’s Sub Shop. The prices were a bit on the higher side, but I do think that they are good quality and worth the cost. The food did take a little while to prepare, but I really can’t complain too much since there was just one slightly older lady (who was quite friendly) running the shop when I visited. All in all, this is a place that’s worth a visit.
