Reuben Ruminations:

: Tasty sandwich. Could have been better with homemade bread. ()

: The meat flavor came through well. Could not taste the cheese very much. A little thin for a Reuben. ()

: Bread was OK, decent flavor, well toasted, but too thinly sliced. Corned beef had a great flavor and good quantity, but slightly overcooked. Swiss cheese was a little strong and the kraut was a little weak. 1000 was nice and tangy. Overall a decent Reuben. ()

: Rye was obviously store-bought but was griddled nicely and had a nice rye taste. Was much too thin and had no chewiness. The corned beef was tender, thinly sliced, and had an assertive but not overbearing flavor. The Swiss was pretty strong but tasty. A little too much 1000 was on the sandwich, but it had nice flavor. Good balance of flavors, but the kraut could have been stronger. Ingredients weren't distributed well--the beef seemed to be piled up towards the center of the sandwich. I would order this Reuben again. ()
