If you’ve ever done some sleuthing on how some of the foods were accustomed to seeing on every menu got their names or where they originated, then you already know how fascinating it can be. Take the Reuben Sandwich, for instance, how did this edible curiosity get its name?
This signature American grilled sandwich is traditionally made with corned beef, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese. It is then topped off with zesty Russian dressing. It purportedly traces its roots to a Jewish origin much like the Pastrami Sandwich.
However, it is not a kosher meal! Some claim it was named after a Jewish-Lithuanian grocer, Reuben Kulakofsky, and another theory is it came from Reuben’s Deli in New York City in the early 1900s.
Maybe, we’ll never really know its real origins, but a lot of us have developed a liking for this beefy hunk of a sandwich. In Alhambra, one of the better, if not the best, Reuben sandwich places is Canter’s Deli. Whether it’s for dining in or ordering a Reuben sandwich delivery, this place is a foodie haven.
They claim to have sold some 10 million pounds of corned beef and is still counting! Granted they’ve been around since 1931, but that’s still a lot of deli sandwich goodness to have served. By all accounts, Canter’s Deli as one of the best Reuben sandwich places for miles and miles.
Canter’s Deli offers four variations of the Reuben Sandwich, and each one is as flavorful and filling as the next.
Let’s start with the Corned Beef Reuben which contains perfectly grilled corned beef, tangy sauerkraut, and flavorful Swiss Cheese served on fresh rye bread. The sandwich is grilled and topped with Russian dressing–faithful to the traditional recipe.
The Pastrami Reuben is a tweak on the first, with grilled pastrami slices subbing for the corned beef. However, if you prefer another source of protein for the filling, try the Turkey Reuben.
The turkey meat is delicately roasted in the oven in lieu of grilling. Fourth but not the least, there’s the Veggie Reuben where a veggie patty takes the place of the animal protein.
Who says you can’t have your fill of Reuben sandwich if you’re a vegetarian? Each sandwich comes with your pick of fries, fresh fruit, Kettle chips, or a side salad. A gluten-free option is offered.
