After a long walk around Eastwood to build up an appetite…
Ron, Chris and I went to Chuck’s Deli for lunch.
What Ron and Chris had in mind wasn’t exactly to have lunch. They both had one “mission” that day – to Slay The Buffy Slabsandwich in 5 minutes or less and be “immortalized” on Chuck’s Deli’s (actual and virtual) Wall off Fame. (http://www.chucksdeli.com.ph/#!__chucks-challenge)
I was prudent enough not to try the challenge. (Perhaps next time :D)
After a chat with the waiter, I’ve decided to go with the Reuben – angus corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, mustard and Chuck’s Deli sauce.
While they were strategizing ways of eating their sandwich, I gazed upon my 1/2 Reuben – curious about what it would taste like.
I wasn’t sure I liked it with just a few bites but halfway through, it hit me – this is a great sandwich.
The beef was tender and the sauerkraut gave a nice sharp flavor just enough to make your mouth water.
Here’s Ron and Chris just before they “attack” The Buffy.
(Check out how flat their sandwiches are. Apparently, it’s a strategy done by other customers. The waiter was thoughtful enough to advise the same.)
So were they able to finish it in less than 5 minutes?
Why don’t you try it yourself and see if you can slay The Buffy. 😀 Good luck!
