The only reason I bought it is because it has jack cheese on it. My fave cheese that i haven't had in 5 years

Liars. There's almost nothing ON that sandwich!

(and does anyone eat pastrami with cheese here> I don't think I've ever seen that happen....)

Hmph.

I don't know about NYers but I love pastrami with cheese.

bronxelf says:

Well I guess it's a matter of whether your deli is kosher or not, You can't *get* it with cheese in a kosher deli.

1st Nov 2005, 19:34

onceupon says:

Aaaaaah. TooJays is the only place around here with pretensions of being kosher, so you might not be able to get it there.

However, The Beefy King has no such illusions and will combine just about anything. They make the best Ruebens ever. With cheeeeeeeese.

bronxelf says:

Right. You can get a reuben (the size of your head) at Carengie or Stage, but you can't get it at Katz' or Second Avenue.

1st Nov 2005, 19:39

onceupon says:

The size of my head?

I don't know.... My head is kind of large-ish.

bronxelf says:

why? Why do they always disbelieve me....

1st Nov 2005, 19:53

bronxelf says:

generally? you order extra bread with it and make more human sized sandwiches out of it.

1st Nov 2005, 19:56

onceupon says:

Oh. My. Goodness.

I'll never doubt you again.

mat says:

what is a reuben? Obviously, there's a photo there, but what kind of thing would it normally describe?

1st Nov 2005, 20:13

onceupon says:

Hot pastrami and cold sauer kraut or however it's spelled. Sometimes it comes with cheese, sometimes with Thousand Island dressing, sometimes with both.

1st Nov 2005, 20:37

bronxelf says:

A traditional reuben is often served on lightly grilled rye bread. it contains corned beef (sometimes pastrami) sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing.

There are variations on this, but that's the classic.

basic recipe here. (linky)

ETA: made with pastrami, it's technically a Rachel, not a Reuben.

mat says:

Right, gotcha. Lose the 1000 Island dressing (on beef/sauerkraut? eeuw) and replace it with some nice mustard, and it sounds pretty tasty. I *heart* pastrami.

I can't think of any sandwiches that have names in the UK.. (mind you, it took me years to figure out that BLT meant Bacon,Lettuce,Tomato. I thought it somehow meant Breakfast, Lunch and Tea. Never did work out which bit I thought was supposed to be tea... true story.)

Joe says:

thats not a sandwich, thats a fucking third world country's hunger problems..solved...on a plate.

Rich says:

That is an absurd sandwich. Say what you like about the original whatsit, but at least it's all in proportion.

bronxelf says:

The sandwiches at the Carnegie aren't cheap, mind, but they do certainly last through several meals.

mat- I'm sure there's other named sandwiches here, but Reuben/Rachel are the first that come to mind. Obviously, it's not something you can get at a kosher deli, cause you can't get the cheese.

I never ate a lot of reubens as a kid cause Im not a huge fan ot thousand island, myself, (it's okay but I can do without it.)

I do like pastrami and chopped liver sandwiches though.

Rich says:

You know what would be good?

Haggis sandwich.

bronxelf says:

The Carnegie doesn't screw around. This sandwich weighs 3 lbs.:



1st Nov 2005, 21:08

onceupon says:

I think this place needs to be on my vacation schedule, just to SEE the sandwiches.

mat says:

I'm sure -->the good Earl<--(linky) is rotating in his grave as we speak. :)

bronxelf says:

Well the restuarant was named after Dale Carnegie. (of How to Make Friends and Influence People fame.)

onceupon-- the sandwiches *are not* cheap. However the food is good. Just try to not go during a holiday-- it gets slammed with tourists.

1st Nov 2005, 21:13

Rich says:

what the fuck. That's no sandwich, that's a load of meat wearing some bread as a hat

1st Nov 2005, 21:16

bronxelf says:



This is a Broadway Danny Rose. It's a corned beef and pastrami combo on rye.

1st Nov 2005, 21:20

onceupon says:

Good to know, belf.

I think it's definitely a place worth seeing. Maybe not on this trip though -- I'm not overly fond of crowds.

kostika says:

I didnt buy this sandwich cause it was true to form but for the cheese. Really it was a pitiful sandwich, but the cheese was good.

I miss Philly Cheese steak sandwiches.

1st Nov 2005, 22:56

mat says:

Elf - looking at those pictures, the word 'obscene' keeps flashing in my head. Alternating occasionally with 'absurd'

It's not right. Really not right. I like a well-stacked sandwich as much as the next man, but those monsters are a step too far.

bronxelf says:

They are tasty, though,

archer says:

I actually feel like I might have a coronary just looking at those sandwiches, bronxelf, however in a perverse kind of way, I still want to try one! Tasty!

2nd Nov 2005, 00:31

bronxelf says:

mmm... philly cheesesteak....

2nd Nov 2005, 00:41

Gael says:

Read that as cheesecake ... time for desert : )
Whenever I see GLBT written down now, I think of BLT sarnies ...

As happens I live just a few blocks away from the S&S; Cheesecake bakery, as well.
