Reuben Redo

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?
