again this one suffered from lilliput syndrome - its there but it isnt big enough to take seriously. the bacon was very tasty especially in combination with the tomato and wilted baby spinach and mozzarella cheese. i would have liked to have seen a bit of herb action in there too to really make it top notch. if it had been stuffed a little fuller i would have given this a near perfect score. again though a pretty good lunch meal if not the greatest one in the range. i think dominos should seriously consider extending these out into the regular all day menu instead of limiting them to the lunch crowd. it just seems silly to shorten your possible market.
Of all the sandwiches we tasted this wasn't my favourite to be honest. I usually avoid spinach by a wide margin, yet it wasn't my least favourite either. The other fillings is what pulls this one above, anything with bacon has me interested. There was a good amount of bacon and just enough tomato to mask the spinach well enough for me.
It was surprisingly filling, more so than the other sandwiches, a whole one would be a good lunch, if the spinach doesn't hold you back. It also held together well so you won't be worried about getting any on your work clothes.
In my opinion, a 'BLT' with lettuce instead of spinach would have gotten a better score from me, but its good to see something different from the stock standard you can get anywhere else... who knows it may grow on me.
Oh my Gawd! Yum, yum, good.
Put rasher bacon on any sandwich and I'm sold. It wasn't under or over cooked, just right. My only small moan would be there wasn't enough. The wilted spinach made a delightful change from boring iceberg or cos lettuce. It also gave it another layer of texture I really enjoyed. The layer of Mozzarella cheese was nicely melted and didn't go too goopy when I tried to bite into my sandwich.
Great combination of flavours and a nice size sandwich for a quick lunch at home or on the run.
Not the worst by any means, this one was actually quite tasty. Not exactly filling, but certainly had potential.
It's a BLT alright, but the bitter lettuce is replaced with baby spinach, which I assume isn't supposed to be bitter.
It needed some form of full-flavoured sauce to go with it, like a mayo or squirt of BBQ, just to offset the 'quiet' taste. heck, even a sprinkling of pepper and salt did the trick when I added some.
All in all, far from being the worst, it was equally far from being the best. More fillings are definitely required to make this one justify the pricetag, but for lighter eaters it may indeed be the one to consider.
Of the range of OSBs, this one came fourth for me because of a number of factors... the flavour was a little tame, with no spicy sauce, no herbs, and basically it was a BLT with the lettuce replaced with something a little more oven-resistant. There was plenty of bacon and tomato, but little else to warrant the pricetag, especially when compared to a pizza ordered through their website.
It wasn't last place though, because despite it's shortcomings it was a pretty fair feed... just not when compared to the other options in the range. As a lunchtime meal, it's about right on the filling factor - you won't go back to work all bloated and uncomfortable when seated or drowsy with digestion-droop - but it's a little hard on the wallet for what you get.
Overall, it was a hard call trying to say anything more glowing than "It's a good tasting sandwich, but nothing to scream about", but even so I have encountered many fast foods that were far worse and with higher price tags than this, so it's not your worst option available by a long stretch. if you have a larger appetite, you may find one of the others more your style.
