Ruby & Rach Classic Deli at David Jones Food Hall, Market St, CBD Sydney (8 Sept 2014)

65-77 Market Street, Sydney NSW 2000

Ruby & Rach at David Jones

For those in need of a good Reuben fix in the CBD you'll be happy to know Ruby & Rach has now opened downstairs in the David Jones Food Hall of the Market Street store. I first discovered this yummy reuben when Chef Tony Gibson took up temporary residence at the Strattons Hotel last year. His reuben won the hearts of many food bloggers in the Sydney Food Bloggers Choice Award which was awarded the Favourite Reuben in 2013. The Reuben ($14) with Wagyu corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing on light rye is a well-balanced tasty sensation. It also has slivers of pickle throughout which isn't mentioned on the menu but gives it an enjoyable extra zingy flavour. The wagyu corn beef is flavoursome and moist as hoped. The Swiss cheese is melted and the Russian dressing gives it that tasty edge. There's the right amount of sauerkraut and the light rye bread is toasted which holds together well while eating. Consider this a two handed mission and don't forget to grab a napkin or two. This is the reuben I now compare to all others and rightfully so. Seating is limited around the food hall so there's always Hyde Park across the road as a backup plan on a nice day.

PROS: Great tasting Reuben
CONS: Limited seating in the food hall
MUST TRY: The Reuben
VERDICT: I've tried quite a few Reubens around town but this one so far is my favourite to date
Chef Tony Gibson master of the Reuben
Open kitchen grill so you can see your reuben being made to order
The Reuben is the one you should try first

I love Reubens, but have always gone to the Westfield food court (Reuben & Moore) for my Reuben fix. Luckily this is only just across the road so I can give it a try.

Oh man, I tried their smaller version at the Stratton's last year and it really didn't give me the Reuben hit I needed. This to go on the list (by default)!
