Carroll Gardens: HBH Gourmet Sandwiches’ Sour Squash Ruben with Pastrami
How do you feel about spaghetti squash? We love it and feel like it’s a criminally under-appreciated vegetable, always losing the spotlight to butternut or acorn squash. But it’s used to perfect affect here at HBH, and transformed into an unorthodox, tangy sour kraut that graces an otherwise classic Ruben. The pastrami melts in your mouth, any of the homemade Russian dressing that lands on your fingers will immediately (maybe discretely, but who cares) get licked right off because it’s just that good, and the marble-rye is just sturdy enough to handle this gut-buster of a sandwich. Finally, the spaghetti squash gets its due.
