Review: Subway - Steak Veracruz Signature Wrap

Subway's Steak Veracruz Signature Wrap features steak, shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese, lettuce, new pico de gallo, avocado, and new Veracruz sauce in a habanero wrap. It's one of four Signature Wraps they're currently offering here in Southern California.

I paid $6.99 for one.

The wrap included the same amount of steak as in a Footlong sub but looks to be about 7 or 8 inches long so it felt meatier, which is nice because that's not often the case with Subway subs unless you go with the Deluxe or double meat options. The steak was tender and flavorful enough but comes in torn little bits that don't feel much like steak.

The Veracruz sauce gave the steak a bit of a flavor similar to Taco Bell's seasoned beef. There's a savory tang to it. The soft avocado balanced it out with a buttery richness.

The cheese, although not all that plentiful, was nicely melted and I could actually taste it here and there. The pico de gallo didn't feel all that fresh but added an extra layer of flavor.

The habanero tortilla was pretty spicy with a heat that builds fairly quickly. It's especially at the ends where the tortilla bunched up. Other than the heat, it tasted much like a flour tortilla although I may have detected a slight fruitiness in there somewhere. If you're not into spicy things, they also offer a spinach tortilla as well as a tomato & basil one.

Overall, Subway's Steak Veracruz Signature Wrap was good but not great and was one of the better things I've tried at Subway in recent years. It's nicely balanced with varied flavors and a good dose of heat.
