One of my favorite stops on the way to work is Wichita Great Harvest Bread Company. Their bread, mainly the cinnamon burst, is just bonkers. It’s something I can pick up in the morning and probably finish by the end of the day and not regret a single bite despite the carb overload.
It was to my excitement when I saw on their Facebook page that they had a new seasonal sandwich available: the Reuben which happens to be my favorite sandwich of all time (with a close second being the Banh Mi).
Their Reuben is corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut and housemade Russian dressing grilled on a hearty caraway rye bread. It runs $8 and change after tax and comes with a side. I immediately stopped by when I heard the news to give it a try for myself.
After trying it though I was underwhelmed. The picture online appeared to show Russian dressing and sauerkraut just oozing out the ends and what I received looked like a Reuben done light. There wasn’t much in the way of sauerkraut on there and they were very very very light on the Russian dressing. The sandwich ended up being fairly dry tasting with most of the flavor being strictly corned beef and rye bread. For an establishment that does so many things great, I was really letdown by this sandwich.
If you want to try it out for yourself, they are located near Central and Woodlawn.
