World of Beer
1724 Whetstone Way
My coworkers decided to go out for lunch. The closest place was this pub called World of Beer. Every conceivable beer you can think of, they had. However, a liquid lunch wasn't in the cards. There was a menu and my eye focused on a Reuben Sandwich. Now, a Reuben sandwich had its origins in New York City, lower Manhattan. Now, the was a Reuben is made and for all my viewers, it starts off with real rye bread bread with a slab of butter on the outside of the bread when grilled to perfection and also for flavor. Then real thousand island dressing slabbed on one side of the bread or both, your choice but the thousand island dressing has to have some relish in it or it wouldn't be thousand island dressing. Now, 2 slices or swiss cheese and about 1/2 pound of delicious well seasoned corn beef. Then grill the sandwich and wait until your get a grilled crust on the rye bread and the swiss cheese is melted. That's a real Reuben sandwich, NY style.
What I got at this place was un grilled rye bread with 5 slices of corn beef, 2 slices of swiss cheese that wasn't even melted and the thousand island dressing was nothing more than a bottle of dressing. It was simply embarrassing for me to eat this but I had to because I paid for it and didn't want to make a scene.
Ideally, if I wasn't working and dropping in for a beer and a nice sandwich would have made it a great time if the sandwich was made the right way. But it wasn't..
Now customers that order a Reuben sandwich will believe that this is the right way to make a Reuben. An embarrassment. As you can expect I had a terrible lunch.
My advice is for owners to know the history of sandwiches and make it the right way.
ON scale of 1-5 and 5 is the best, I gibe this establishment a -1,000.
