New sandwich in town

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2006/11/Picture%289%29-thumb.jpgThey call it Zinger Extreme. And what takes it to the extreme? Jalapeno peppers! Yup, that’s right. Your favorite zinger burger now comes with jalapeno peppers in it. However, I didn’t like the subway style sandwich. Had it been the traditional burger it would have been super hit. That might be because they didn’t cut it in half which made it hard to handle and resulted in pieces of chicken falling down from the sandwich.

Bottom line, it’s worth trying only once. It’s not everyday you do something extreme. Oh, by the way, it costs Rs. 150.

    exactly… where to get hold of proper jalape√±os…

    oh and coming back to the topic i totally agree to try JUST ONCE … because it isn’t worth having again. the taste of the original zinger is better, here not only did they add some jalape√±os but also some other stuff (sauce?) which has ruined the taste, PLUS i didn’t get any fries or coke with that … its just a sandwich … ill stay with my trusty zinger for the time being.

    It must be the picture, or maybe, the sandwich, just doesn’t look appetizing.

    Yea the picture makes all the appetite wither away…For sandwiches in karachi i try the following two places: Subway and Hennys. The latter is delicious,as well as, cheaper compared to Subway. Any other nice sandwich places in karachi, folks ????

    This Zingere is not money worth, neither WORTH a try – Trust me guys, the presentation is not at PAR, else the taste. 100% wastage of money.

    Subway & Hennys are Great for the Sandwiches.

    Umar – how true – worth a try only once. Another turn off was the fact that they don’t have a proper packaging for this sandwich. Two random paper rolls snubbed and the rolled around the sandwich. when I got mine it was like buying a Rs. 15 bun kebab for Rs 150.

    Idiots could have designed a proper casing like the McArabia box or something along those lines

    my (very wise) grandmother had a saying in urdu which went something like this: “aakhein lein toh antain lein” meaning “if it looks good to the eyes, it will appease the intestines”. Someone should tell KFC that.

    eeew kfc. id rather eat a bun kabab than eat at KFC. Their chicken is always undercooked and smells of blood. yuck.

    True!at $ 2.50 it seems reasonable even though a similar sandwich at the joint next door is only 0.55 $ with mostly local ingredients ..but the 200ml pepsi worth only $0.10 to go with it is the real fun killer…..I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE…….!
