I think a Rueben made with pastrami is called a Rachel.  I prefer 'em over corned beef.

I believe it also has coleslaw instead of sauerkraut.

I'm now hungry.

Turkey Rueben, nope.

Wait, he painted all those works with naked women, and you chose one with naked children?!?

Kimchi is an abomination.

Fight me.

I don't want to fight you.

I just want to eat the kimchi you ignored.

Traditional Mexican/African/Chinese/etc. food made and re-imagined by White Europeans? Cultural appropriation. Evil.

Traditional Jewish food made and re-imagined by Gentiles? Celebration of creativity! And there's a huge overlap between people who believe both of these.

A few years ago, me and Mrs. Jonb just happened to be in Omaha on St. Patricks day.  We went to three resturaunt/bars trying to find a Reuben.

No sense of history, so sad.

Omaha
St. Patrick's Day
Reuben

This confluence of misadventure made me frown. But maybe I'm the weird one.

We were traveling by car to a funeral in Colorado. St. Patrick's day was just a matter of timing.  Reubens are "traditional" corned beef fare on that day in the US.  Omaha was a simple matter of bad luck.

I appreciate the information. I did not mean to doubt your story. I was just a mite perplexed by a few of the details.

Maybe we were both a little unfair to Omaha. Or maybe not.

Considering the hoops I had to jump through to get a sammich that was invented there, I'm thinking not.  Any you do not deny an Irish girl her corned beef on St. Patt's day, even if she might actually be Scottish.  Its just something you will not be on the right side of, ever.

Did the hotel or whatever go out of business?

If you can't find a Rueben in Omaha, you're doing it all wrong.

I love meat, but actually prefer a veggie reuben.  One of the local vegan places makes one that is unreal.

I believe it is unreal.

There's no such thing as a veggie Reuben. Reubens contain corned beef.

Does a non-kosher sandwich invented in Nebraska fewer than a hundred years ago really qualify as traditional ethnic fare?

The classic corned beef, Swiss and sauerkraut combo can be made with kimchi, meat substitutes or different cheeses

No.
You can make a sandwich with kimchi, meat substitutes and different cheeses, and it might actually be decent in it's own right, but it isn't a farking ruben.
No.

If I go to my local deli and order a Dagwood (an enormous pile of everything), and I get fried tofu, wilted lettuce and ketchup on a hot dog bun... and they tell me that's a Dagwood...
Let's just say it better be a long way around the counter!
Point is that wouldn't be a Dagwood, and a sandwich with kimchi and fake meat isn't a Ruben.
WTF is wrong with people?

I make a breakfast for my wife, and it is called Eggs B******. That means she is getting a pile of bread, meat, eggs and maybe some veggies... all slathered with hollandaise sauce.
Type of bread: whatever is
Type of meat: whatever is
Type of egg: yes
Type of sauce: hollandaise, probably (sshhhh!)

The point is, it isn't called Eggs Benedict, because it farking isn't.

My first job out of college was as a per diem junior accountant working for a sole practicioner. Michael was a prince. He may have not paid top dollar but he always covered lunch and lunch was always good. His wife kept a religiously kosher home and he loved it BUT, out in the everyday world lunch could be double or triple cheeseburgers from Wendys and I always looked forward to the quarterly work in the great NorthEast Philly when we would hit the crabhouse for lunch. I learned to appreciate well made Reubens and Rachaels under his tutelage.

/I also learned that that thing at the end of the pencil was NOT an eraser. The big pink rectangular thing was an eraser.
