If we’re honest with ourselves, we’re thinking about meat between bread most of the time. Make that a Reuben? We can hardly contain ourselves. Luckily, there’s plenty of spots around Perth serving up the deli classic, from the traditionalists to the boundary-pushers.
Artem does a lot of things right, and just one of them is their weekend Reuben. Filled with house-smoked brisket pastrami (controversial) and with house-made sauerkraut, plus Swiss cheese and Russian dressing, all on toasted rye… Besides the pastrami vs corned beef contention, this Reuben keeps things straightforward, well-executed and traditional. Really, we couldn’t ask for more.
We’ve extolled the virtues of Modus’ A-plus coffee game already, but after a weekend visit to their new Wembley outpost for a Reuben, we’ve got to give them props for their sandwich game, too. Less extravagant than others on this list, and perhaps not quite so traditional, it nevertheless holds its own.
Mama Mahoney’s American Diner
We’re all for a bit of high-brow, degustation, fancy-pants food every now and then, but sometimes you just need some unpretentious diner-style goodness. Luckily, Mama Mahoney’s has got the goods. As well as classic diner breakfasts and burgers, you’ll find a range of sandwiches that’ll have you singing the Star Spangled Banner in no time – including a Reuben, of course. Homemade pastrami, stacked high on homemade rye, with the classic accompaniments of Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing. Oof.
Old Faithful – how true that name has become. This American barbecue stalwart manages to strike the balance between tradition and innovation, and their Reubens are no exception. Aptly made with brisket instead of pastrami, it’s a super succulent version of the classic sandwich. Plus, with a second location now open in Fremantle, a Reuben is never too far away.
Oh So Deli
It’s only just opened, but Oh So Deli has made a big, big impression already.
