Review: Subway - Corned Beef Reuben

Subway's Corned Beef Reuben features corned beef, Swiss cheese, Bavarian-style sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing on rye bread.

A Footlong goes for $8.75 but I had a coupon to bring it down to $6.

The rye bread was heartier than the typical Subway bread with slightly more of a crust to it, although I wouldn't go so far as to call it "crusty." The rye flavor was enough to let you know that you're eating rye bread but, on the balance, was still quite mild.

The sandwich comes with what looks to be a double portion of corned beef and was plenty meaty, especially given the lack of vegetables with the default build. The beef was suitably moist and salty.

The Swiss didn't really match up well to the double meat portion and was mostly a bland, but thoroughly melted, afterthought that made a creamy appearance here and there.

Like the rye, the sauerkraut fell into the mild category with a light sour quality and just a slight bit of crispness. The sourness was buoyed and complemented by the sweet, creamy, and tangy quality of the Thousand Island.

Given the relatively few components, Subway's Corned Beef Reuben came together fairly well. I particularly liked the departure from the typically soft Subway bread and the extra meatiness. Subway's version is a more accessible, mainstream version of the signature deli sandwich.
