Sydney is not one of my favourite places on earth, but I seem to frequent this place from time to time, as Austrialia is the closest place we (New Zealander’s) can fly to from New Zealand. We decided to make a short weekend trip over the ditch to celebrate our birthdays with a bit of shopping and eating.
We stayed in Sydney CBD, very close to the new Westfield Shopping Mall – one of the fanciest shopping malls I have been in, in Australisia. Store after store of high end luxury brands. This definitely is not your usual shopping mall that we get back home in New Zealand.
The food court/restaurant area is located on the fifth floor that contains more up market store fronts than your usual five choice Chinese plate of grease, dry day old Sunday roasts, curry made with butter five ways. Some of the outlets included the likes of Ipuddo (Japanese chain restaurant selling ramen), Ding Tai Fung (Famous Taiwanese dumpling chain) amongst others. There is something for everyone. from salad bars, to Mexican, to french patisseries, to Sushi etc… however this is not a cheap food court. If you have visited this place, you will know what I mean.
I was cravings for corned beef (salt beef) so decided to give Reuben and Moore a try.
As per its namesake, we ordered a Reuben sandwich consisting of Wagyu salt beef on rye with Swiss cheese, dill pickles, sauerkraut and mild mustard mayonnaise.
The rye is thick and super soft, so I was in bread heaven. The salted beef really did melt in my mouth, it was tender and was nicely balanced against the slightly sour dill pickles and sauerkraut, topped off with a creamy piece of Swiss cheese.
I would come as far to say that this is the best Reuben I have ever had. Will definitely be back for more when I am in Sydney next.
At Reuben and Moore, you can order meats with rolls or just the meats itself with baked vegetables and chips. There are also pre-made sandwiches and salads.
The sandwich was so good that I had to order one for my trip back home to New Zealand. The Reuben sandwich was well wrapped that it lasted a few hours and still remained fresh and intact when I ate it on the plane.
It was not till after we got home that this place was is known to be one of the best Reuben sandwiches in town.
Cost of a Reuben sandwich set me back $13.50
