    29 Subway Items You Can't Get In The U.S.

    Five... Five dollar... Five dollar so wrong! Gimme, gimme.

    1. Beef Hotdog (Lebanon)


    Is that a bed of crushed chips it is laying on? If so I am buying a ticket to Lebanon right now.

    2. Halloumi Sab (Saudi Arabia)


    Subway offers Saudi Arabians fried cheese on a sub, basically, and now I really want to eat one.

    3. Chicken Curry (Spain)


    So not only do Spaniards get to live in one of the most beautiful countries on Earth, they also get to eat chicken curry Subway sandwiches. Not gonna lie, I'm pretty jealous right now.

    4. Steak and Chorizo Melt (United Kingdom)


    "Know what this steak melt is missing, mate? Slices of Spanish sausage, aka chorizo." – Some British genius.

    5. Chicken Tikka (Lebanon)


    In Lebanon (and a few other countries that aren't the U.S.), you can walk up to the counter and ask the sandwich artist for chicken tikka like it ain't no thang.

    6. Cold Smoked Raw Ham and Mascarpone (Japan)


    This sounds like the most advanced ham and cheese sandwich of all time, and customers in Japan get to experience its glory.

    7. Chicken Parmesan (Egypt)


    Huh? I could've sworn we had these ooey, gooey, fried sandwiches of happiness. ::goes on U.S. Subway page:: Nope. We don't. ::sighs audibly::

    8. Shrimp Melt (Japan)


    Japanese Subway goers are privy to experiencing this sandwich made with shrimp, delish, melty cheese, and a mixture of seven different vegetables.

    9. Shrimp and Avocado (Japan)


    Don't want your shrimp on a melt? Japan has you covered with this shrimp sandwich that is topped with mashed avocado.

    10. Peri Peri Chicken (South Africa)


    Peri peri sauce is a marinade that is Portuguese in origin, but very popular in many African countries. Made with a mixture of lemon, garlic, red bell peppers, and peri peri chilis, aka African bird's eye chili, this takes the normal chicken sub up a notch in my book.

    11. Crumbed Chicken (South Africa)


    Basically a chicken tender sandwich, and basically something I would eat in a heartbeat.

    12. Green Peas Patty (India)


    This is the perfect way to eat your veggies and I'm ashamed we didn't think of this sooner. They are fried for Pete's sake! Who doesn't love fried anything? C'mon, give peas a chance.

    13. Paneer Tikka (India)


    This paneer, which is a fresh curd cheese, is tossed in BBQ seasonings and "roasted to a light crispness." Sign me up!

    14. Fiesta Mexicana (Poland)


    Grilled chicken on flatbread slathered with guacamole? Uh, yes please.

    15. Three Pepper Chicken (New Zealand)


    Chicken tossed in a three pepper mixture and then fried? Why can't we get spicy chicken here that isn't just tossed in buffalo sauce? I mean, I love buffalo sauce, but a little change couldn't hurt.

    16. Mexican Bean Patty (India)


    I'm happy to see Mexican food influencing the rest of the world, but sad that we don't get to experience some of those creations. Made with black and red kidney beans, this sandwich is one of those treats.

    17. Pork Riblet (New Zealand)


    It's like the Subway McRib, but y'know, probably delicious.

    18. Sausage Roll with Cheese (Japan)


    Is this the Japanese equivalent of eating a hot dog wrapped in a tortilla? Because if it is that is glorious and wonderful and makes me want to call my mom.

    19. Cheese Roasted Chicken with Mushroom (Japan)


    Do we even have mushrooms available in U.S. Subways? Because if we do I am special ordering this pronto.

    20. Herb Sausage (Japan)


    The sausage is made with basil and oregano, which I am completely down with and need in my belly right now.

    21. Basil Oven Potatoes (Japan)


    These also come in BBQ, cheese, and regular flavor. Let that sink in for a minute.

    22. Chicken Seekh (India)


    A little mint, a little bit green chili, a little bit of heaven.

    23. Chicken Tandoori (India)


    Yogurt and spice, and everything nice, that's what Chicken Tandoori is made of. Seriously, U.S. Subways, get on this ASAP.

    24. Cream Soda and Coffee Floats (Japan)

    "Can I get a footlong turkey and a cream soda float, please?" – Something you will never say because you aren't in Japan.

    25. Corn and Peas (India)


    Corn, peas, and carrots mixed in an "eggless mayo" make this Indian Subway sandwich stand out. Not sure if it's standing out in a good way, but it does stand out, nonetheless.

    26. Veg Shammi (India)


    A vegetarian version of the kebab, this shammi made with lentils and spices. What a shammi we don't have these in the U.S.

    27. Yuzu and Sour Cream, Carrot and Apple, and Komatsuna and Sesame Pound Cakes (Japan)

    Wait, not only do Japanese Subways get pound cake, they get them in fun flavors like these? WTF? Also, FYI, Komatsuna is Japanese mustard green, but don't let that scare you from trying it.

    28. Smoked Chicken with Cream Cheese (Brazil)


    Cream. Cheese. Mind. Blown.

    29. Aloo Patty (India)


    Aloo is a South Asian term for potato, so this is basically a fried mashed potato sandwich. For the love of all that is holy, all I can say is GIVE US THESE, SUBWAY!

    The ball is in your court now, Subway. Time to make some of these happen.
