Lt. Cheese Weasel: Gonz: I'm glad we didn't get this level of reporting during the Clinton Administration.

//Bill ain't giving anyone half a perfectly good sammich.

Why not? He seemed pretty generous with his cigars.

Bill Clinton knows the value of a good Cuban which is > than a Reuben.

acad1228: Speaking for Oklahoma, a Reuben here is corned beef and sauerkraut on rye. Sometimes it's served with swiss cheese. Always with brown mustard thousand island.


Weird, I've never even heard of putting mustard on a Reuben.  I wonder if that's a regional variation?

And its called Soda. Its not pop, its soda.

Corned beef and sauerkraut is traditionally known as a Reuben.

Seriously, who doesn't know what a Reuben is?  Is it called a "Jew York Melt" in flyover country?

What I want to know is, who is this Archangel guy?  He's stealing my bit!

Archangel - 10 hours ago
Symbolic and ironic - Obama bin Liar is flapping his yap to a U of M college grad who is having to work at a freaking DELI because Obozo's destructive and incompetent policies continue to harm the economy - yeah Barry, boosting the minimum wage will really help this kid get a better job and pay off those student loans - King Barry, always looking out for the little serfs - hey, get that kid a slice of cake on him

Reuben is the traditional name for corned beef, sauerkraut, thousand island, and swiss on rye, which is exactly what that sandwich appears to be.

I think the real controversy is that you don't know what a reuben is.

Russian dressing, not Thousand Island.

And I believe mustard on a Reuben is seen more often in the western US.

If you make it with dark rye, is it a Nubian Reuben ??

Been making sammiches since 1964.
Made them professionally enough to purchase my first home.

That Zingletucker's looks dry.
I judge a place by their Reuben and fries.
that's AND fries.
No fries, you fail.
No 57 for the fries, you fail.
If you screw up a Reuben, you shouldn't be making sammiches.


Last place I worked, we made them on homemade baguettes.
You could get a large, foot long one on a fresh loaf, Made with Rye flour.
Baked in a pizza oven.
 People loved them, but I gave them a fail, and I worked there.
A Reuben is fried in butter. It is served with Fries, and those fries must be hot, and not greasy or soggy. And the 'chup must be Heinz 57.
It is the holy trinity of hunger.

Zingerman's Reuben
Zingerman's corned beef, Switzerland Swiss cheese, Brinery sauerkraut & Russian dressing on grilled, hand-sliced Jewish rye bread.


Clearly a coded message to the Trilateral Commission giving the go-ahead for the disarmament of all American households and the institution of martial law.  And, of course, the Lamestream LIEbral Media says nothing.

The only real argument I could see here is that in some locations the Thousand Island is replaced with (or a replacement for) Russian Dressing.  I hold no particular opinion on which is "correct."

/Prefer no dressing on my Reuben

He said it was so big, he gave half of it away. But then it was REALLY good, so he wanted his half back. But he couldn't get it back because the lady already ate it (because it was so good) so he stole her pickle.

Which I'm sure is going to be turned into some kind metaphor for how he us treating the poor oppressed rich people or something.

I know what it said. It was just written like a third grader would write a short article.

"Che Che" isn't a salad, it's a communist code word used to activate Soviet sleeper agents. We all know that 0bama is a pinko, but apparently the Washington Post is part of the conspiracy as well. Why else would they publish this turd?

To be a Rachel in Georgia it has to have slaw AND turkey.  In Michigan (including at the deli in question), this is commonly called a Georgia Reuben.

Yeah, it's confusing.

Would that you might teach the world your ways.

Can't get a decent Reuben anywhere near Capitol Hill these days, which is where I'm stuck at lunch time, which is the appointed time for Reuben consumption.

In the cafeteria upstairs from my office what they refer to as a "Reuben" is made with burnt, dry toast.

Burnt, dry toast, I tell you!  Marble rye!

It's a travesty.

Both the president and Congressman [Gary] Peters stood in front of a large display case filled with salads, meats, desserts and other goodies. Both men ordered Reuben sandwiches (apparently a specialty) and iced teas, while POTUS also got a side of "Che Che spin" salad.

Okies be wrong.

A Reuben is Corned Beef OR Pastrami (or go crazy with a combo), on Rye bread, topped with sourkraut, which is then topped with melted Swiss cheese, and of course another slice of rye.

The controversy can be either the more traditional mustard, or the just as acceptable (IMHO) Russian dressing.

It's crass to be served without a pickle. And if you're at Katz's in NYC, I highly recommend requesting a pickled tomato as well.

If anyone else has a boring, irrelevant story about their  lunch, please be sure to greenlight that thread too.  We can't get enough of those.
 

Maybe next time we could get some more drama... some of the peaks an valleys of life. Maybe the guy drops his sandwich, and he thinks he is going to have to pay another $5, but it turns out that the floor was cleaner than he expected, so he eats it.

...we can leave the pickle out of the next thread,  though.
