Truck Stop: Reuben on Rye

Posted: November 01, 2013

What to eat: Get your deli on at the "best meat on the street" truck. Hot corned beef, pastrami and brisket, grilled chicken, roast beef, turkey, tuna, Reubens, salads, matzo ball soup, knishes, kosher dogs, latkes. We could go on, but we're getting hungry. Suffice it to say, the menu is huge, as long as you're not on a low-carb diet.

Details: In a city full of food trucks serving tacos and desserts - and, trust us, we have nothing against tacos and desserts, particularly in that order - Reuben on Rye is a nice change of pace. The truck, which opened in the spring, is essentially the mobile arm of Neil Parish's The Kibitz Room, in Cherry Hill.

Two words: Brisket fries. With fried onions and melted cheddar cheese. We haven't had these yet, and we will regret it every day till we do. Parish says you gotta try 'em.

Wild card: G.B.M.F. Sandwich. A double-decker with corned beef, pastrami, turkey and a kosher dog on rye. It's $24.95 but can probably feed a few people. "I think we sold three of them," Parish said. What does the name stand for? Ask the guys at the truck.

Where: The truck has been at 33rd and Arch streets, at Drexel, and at the Navy Yard. Starting Friday, find it at the Porch, at 30th Street Station. Check online for location before you go.
