I won't lie, I'm surprised it's taken us this long to get to Arby's. Everyone in the States knows Arby's, right? If only for their Beef and Cheddar sandwiches and overabundance of horseraddish sauce?
Well this isn't a write up of a Beef and Cheddar, but we should get on that soon. No, this is from Christen and it's one of their Market Fresh sandwiches. From what I can tell "Market Fresh" is code for "You could probably make it at home."
Arby's is a place I really enjoy when I stop in, but I rarely actually do it. I'm not sure why…They're pretty pricey so that may be it. But sometimes it's nice to splurge a bit and it's the only fast food place I know of in the Midwest where I can get seasoned curlies. Sadly, there's no Jack in The Box here, so Arby's is my only option.
Let's check out the Turkey And Swiss Market Fresh Sandwich!
This sandwich looks like an amazing version of something I'd make in my kitchen. Well, I wouldn't put tomato on it but I'm a crazy person. Sadly MY sandwiches never look this good because they aren't propped up with toothpicks, I don't have the time or energy to fold up the meat all fancy like they do, and I just don't need to do that if I'm making it for me.
However, this looks REALLY appetizing. It looks delicious and seems to be piled high with turkey. That's what I like to see in a sandwich. The Swiss cheese is a nice addition. The veggies look fresh and the, what I'm assuming is, mustard on the bottom doesn't look like regular old yellow mustard. I like it. Let's check the real McCoy.
Well, the ingredients are there and that turkey is piled really high, so it definitely delivers. It doesn't quite have the finesse, but it looks delicioius. I'm most pleased with the bread. The bread looks spot on which I feel normally isn't the case. For some reason when you get specialty sandwiches I feel a lot of time some features are swapped out for different options. Be it the bun, red onions substituting for white, different cheeses, etc. It happens. Not here, though. Arby's really built a solid sandwich. How does it taste? Let's ask Christen.
The Arby's Roast Turkey and Swiss Market Fresh Sandwich was really tasty. There was almost too much meat for me, but it was really nice quality deli meat — not slimy or grisly. There was a brown mustard that had a bit of a horseradish flavor, which I loved. If I had been thinking ahead, I would have asked for no mayo, but there was some mayo. It also had lettuce, tomato (one slice), red onion, and a slice of swiss cheese. The honey wheat bread was really tasty, too. These sandwiches are pretty big, so they cut them in half, which is helpful, however all the ingredients weren't placed directly in the middle of the bread, so it ended up being uneven halves, which is a little annoying, but not a huge deal. Somehow, though, this sandwich has 700 calories, 27g fat, and 1770mg sodium. Yikes. That seems excessive, even for a splurgey sandwich. All considered, I would give this sandwich 2.5 out of 5 stars. It's healthier than some fast foods, but why eat this when there's Subway? My reason was a Jamocha shake and curly fries, but my lunch was almost $9, which really is not worth it.
