New House of Reuben 8 Mile, Warren, MI [Detroit area]

If you are going to Villa Italian for lunch, only to discover they open at 4pm and you are still hungry, go south to 8 mile turn right and you will be at House of Reuben 14693 E. Eight Mile Rd., Warren, MI.

It's only been there for 3 weeks. House of Reuben is a warm two counter deli on the north side of 8 mile just west of Gratiot. Driving by when I see the Detroit police car in front (lunch time) and that's a good sign.

Go inside and it's what you'd expect a 14 space counter only deli where you watch the food theatre. Two overly loud funny waitresses tease the customers and call out the orders.

I had the lamplighter (corned beef, coleslaw, Russian) on an onion roll for $6. Good value for money. They cook the corned beef in a way I haven't seen before. The meat is pre-sliced in the sandwich cooler and then blanched in very warm water before going on the sandwich. The meat was "very" lean to begin with and the blanching seemed to take the brisket-fat taste away. When I am having corned beef a bit of fat is part of the lube. Quite different. Unsure if that will catch on with me.

Hours 11-9 closed Sundays & Holidays. Phone 586 773 2950

Very clean place. Mixed and friendly clientele. A change from Onion Roll in that they have parking. ;-)
