Reuben from Dickson’s Farmstand Meats, $9
STUFF INSIDE :: pastrami, russian dressing, muenster
A pretty classic reuben classed up by quality farm-fresh ingredients. When ordering, the counter-person had to ask, “Hayo Jimmy! how many of them reubens we have left?” Okay, I made up Jimmy, but it’s true they butcher and smoke all their meat in-house and quickly run out. I lucked out getting the second-to-the-last sandwich and felt I was touched by patron saint of the 1%, Mitt R-money. The pastrami is sliced thin, smoky, with a hint of coriander or fennel seed. It had just the right amount of fat. The russian dressing didn’t just feel like a slop of mayo. Tangy, spicy and a lil garlicky, there was texture. The melty muenster helped keep the sandwich moist. All on rye. And way better than Dickson’s Pulled Pork.
