Today I ordered the #12 Georgia Reuben. This sandwich is made with roasted turkey, Switzerland Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and coleslaw on grilled Zingerman's Jewish Rye.
This is a twist on the classic Reuben sandwich that is incredibly popular, but the corned beef is replaced with turkey and the sauerkraut is replaced with coleslaw. From what I have read online, this sandwich is incredibly popular in the state of Michigan, despite the southern connection in the name.
I've never had a #12 before, but I've had our #35, which also has turkey and coleslaw...so I was pretty sure I would like the combination. Our coleslaw is a little different than most because the dressing is made with mostly mayo, sour cream, vegetable oil, and heavy cream. Traditional coleslaw almost always has some kind of vinegar listed as a main ingredient. We also use green and red cabbage, and green peppers, in the slaw giving it a fun unique color.
This sandwich has a lot going on. The coleslaw, turkey, Swiss, and Russian make a great combination. The more I have the Russian dressing, the more I like it, and it's a dressing that I had never thought to try until I had the Reuben sandwich.
I really liked this sandwich. If you haven't tried our coleslaw, it is a must. It looks and tastes so much different (and better) than the coleslaw you see at other restaurants. I can see why I see the sandwich ordered over and over again; I know that I will definitely order this again as well!
