I can’t really be sure what excited more, meeting this guy or that guy or eating at Ruby & Rach for this #TwEat up. Let’s just go with all of the above. The occasion was a very reuben lunch at Tony Gibson’s new digs at the stratton up near south end of hyde park. No longer a market stall staple, R+R lands on 1st floor here but I believe you can also order downstairs.
The table clothes makes this venue seem like its quite a poshy dining space.
A look at the menu (middle mouse click or click to expand the pic). of particular note, there’s a half and half which gives you half a sandwich and a half serve of soup. Jewish Penicillin! and the pickled egg is $1 (ahem seiobo). I totally missed it, but the menu says Poutine. Canucks, Go crazy.
Menu on the black board on the side walls. Tongue sanger?This is a highlight I missed but the cordial is made with rainwater. oooO?The Wagyu Reuben with side of potato salad. Russian Dressing, Swiss Cheese, Wagyu Corned Beef, Sauerkraut on light Rye. delicious.
Jewish Penicillin. 1/2 serve here. The matzo ball is delicious as was the soup. Happily eat a big bowl of this.
Rain water in this cordial. Fancy? I thought it was and would love to try this.
Both sandwiches we ate today were delicious and quite enjoyable. I also really dug the chicken soup and the matzo ball that came with the soup. If you fancy the various items listed on the menu, R+R won’t disappoint serving up delicious sandwiches. Price guide btw $12 to $16. It should be noted that it is table service and the waitress was attentive and dropped by to top up our drinks. Visit at 249 Castlereagh.
