Last Friday I popped along for a hearty sandwich lunch at Essen, Broadway. The sandwich was a Reuben to be more precise. You might remember I’ve been to Essen before – for an Oktoberfest dinner.
Essen Restaurant & Beer Cafe has just released their version of Katz Deli’s famous Reuben Sandwich. I’m not sure whether you’ve been to New York but Katz Deli is an institution, with thousands of people lining up just to get a taste of their Reuben sanger. Many Sydney local joints have also added this American classic to their menus including Reuben Hills and Reuben & Moore.
Essen’s Real Reuben Sandwich has its signature Northern European touch – beef brisket that’s been marinated for weeks served on German rye bread with Gruyere cheese, Hungarian sauerkraut, Russian dressing and Essen’s homemade pickles. This is available for lunch at Essen on Thursdays and Fridays for only $22.50 with beer and chips.
As I wrote in real-time on twitter: “ESSEN Broadway for a Reuben sandwich lunch – WHAT a WHOPPER – sides pickle, chips, beetroot relish, horseradish relish”.
