If you’re thinking about eating healthy, chances are you’ll end up looking at vegetable salads or meatless dishes BUT offered in expensive prices. Fortunately, you can actually consider eating sandwiches made with healthy ingredients at a budget-friendly price! The Galley, a sandwich stall known for their hearty sandwiches, makes healthy eating BETTER (and yummier). Here are five reasons to try their sandwiches:
5. The Galley makes gourmet quality sandwiches with fresh flavors at surprisingly affordable, student-friendly prices.
Bestseller: Chicken Lifesaver (P110)
Their best selling sandwich is the Lifesaver (P90), a ciabatta sandwich stuffed with tomatoes, basil pesto, and mozzarella. You may upgrade your order by just adding P20 to make it a Chicken Lifesaver! This is much better than the sandwiches offered by a famous coffee shop for lunch. Cheese lovers can also feast on their Yellow Sub (P75) with cheddar and mozzarella on whole wheat bread. People with sweet tooth, on the other hand, may try their Skipper (P75). It’s a Nutella sandwich with cream cheese and cinnamon which makes it more flavorful.
4. Majority of their vegetables are NICERT-certified organic.

Love veggies? Or you’ve now decided to include veggies in your diet? Trust The Galley because majority of the veggies they use for their sandwiches are NICERT-certified (by the Negros Island Certification Services). It only means that the veggies included in their sandwiches are, overall, a healthier alternative. They’re farm-to-table and you’re sure that these veggies were grown with love and care – less pesticides. Try the Tsunami (P85): it has lettuce, mango, and crabstick bathing on Japanese mayo. Their Salvavidas include eggplant, tomatoes, basil, pepper jack cheese and garlic mayo all stuffed in focaccia bread.
3. Their breads are freshly baked and preservative-free!

The Galley sandwiches are served hot and fresh, but to make it even better, their breads are freshly baked! Some sandwiches are even picked from artisanal selections like ciabatta and focaccia. If you’re just curious about these breads, order the Sharkbait Tunana, a healthy tuna sandwich version on focaccia bread. Another sandwich with a twist is their Captain Nemo (P115) made with sundried tomato pesto tuna on focaccia.
2. The Galley uses only olive oil.

Yes, OLIVE OIL ONLY! No need to worry about how they fry or sauté their ingredients, just like the tuna on the photo, simply because they use olive oil. Caramelized onions on their Bon-ion Voyage, P110 (with emmental cheese on whole wheat) can also prove this point. You may also want an egg sandwich by enjoying their Voy-egg-er (P90) which also includes basil, Japanese mayo, and pepper jack cheese. YUMMY!!
1. LOVE: Sauces, spreads, and condiments are all HOMEMADE in small batches and with lots of love!

Sandwiches won’t taste good if not for the sauces or spreads! The Galley also makes sure that these are also prepared the best way they can. Their sauces, spreads, and condiments are all homemade with lots of love, thus making their sandwiches taste REALLY GOOD. Try their Dory Mi which includes a homemade tartar sauce, and another bestseller, the Buoy (P125) which includes their homemade sundried tomato pesto.
Thank God for The Galley, I have another healthy meal option aside from my plan to order meals from Fit Food Manila! :) Let’s try enjoying healthier meals, folks!
