Love The Reuben!

You don't have to go to Europe to get the best Euro Gourmet delights. Over the summer I was hunting for some breakfast sausage from my friend Fergus Nolan and he recommend Euro Gourmet all the way out east. I had to convince my Mom to drive way out there. We finally found the store and we were amazed at the great exotic foods they sell.

They had pickles, candies and weird things in jars. There was gourmet butter with Russian labels and an enormous variety of meats. I mean really, a ton of cool looking meat. I wanted to try it all! The Russian meat jerky, handmade polish sausage, bologna, Kielbasa, and of course Nolan and Sons bacon, blood pudding, and sausage!

Just look at these photos! It is a foodie Paradise!
To top it off they now serve lunch! Of course I had to try it. We looked at the menu and I saw a Reuben. I always love a good Reuben. He told us the bread was imported from NY and fresh. I had to try it! A few minutes later we had a good looking Ruben. The meat was tender, not stringy or fatty. Good corned beef is a must for a great Reuben. Add in the nice quality cheese and the spicy mustard on toasted fresh rye and it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Not to mention his special homemade sauce. I skipped the kraut. I was still just a bit scared of the Kraut, but I got over my fear at a pickling class I took this summer (more on that later). He gave us a great pickle with the sandwich and a side of slaw that was really good too.

I talked my Mom into some fancy Chocolates for dessert and the best one was Vodka filled- Should I say that.... it was the best... in my Mom's defense it was in Russian or something.

You might have seen this store on the news lately. MLGW turned off their power by mistake which ruined their meat and cost them a lot of money. I want you to go support the Euro Gourmet Market and have a Reuben! The Foodie community would not be the same without them!
