The bratwurst Reuben ($6.99) at Kahn's Deli (2429 Rice Boulevard, 713-529-2891) takes the traditional Reuben sandwich to an unexpected place and some say the new version is better than the old standard. Kahn's has traded out the corned beef for grilled Usinger bratwurst, made with a blend of veal and pork. And instead of traditional rye bread, they serve it on an onion roll. But don't worry -- the sandwich still has melted Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and sauerkraut. Without those, it just wouldn't be a Reuben, now, would it?
