Salt Beef Sandwich in London



It's harder to get a decent salt beef sandwich in London than it used to be, so when as I find them I'll let you know. This one in a cafe at the junction of Bedfordbury and New Row was OK - I'd recommend, good flavour, quantity and size. Bread was a bit ordinary, and the idea of mustard as a pool by the sde is curious.

Diamond Geezer reminded me of the Beigel bakery (featured previously, where they also serve a decent salt beef sandwich.

I HATE when the bread is thick... That's the most important thing to me in a sandwich. And I agree, the mustard pool is rather curious.

What do you think of Harry Morgan's salt beef sandwiches?

Ah yes, Harry Morgan. Been there for years, pretty expensive, in all the guidebooks. Used to be excellent. The last one I had there (admittedly years ago) was pretty average.

As a Brit abroad I have to say I miss any kind of English sandwich - they don't make them quite the same anywhere else! In fact, in one of my recurring dreams I'm walking through a M&S foodhall looking for a good sarnie...I'd better start planning a trip back soon ;)

There are lots of places you can find excellent salt beef sandwiches, in fact there is a whole restaurant which sells nothing else in Selfridges on Oxford Street, and a 24 hour beigel bakery in Brick Lane which is famous for its huge portions. You're right about the mustard - it should be in the sandwich not on the plate, but Missy, let me tell you that gherkins are amazing with salt beef. Maybe its a London thing, but you should try it

The best is when the beef is well marbled to the point where it just melts in your mouth. I don't understand the mustard - it's not even brown mustard. it is the yellow crap you find in a bottle.

Havent been there for ages but there used to be a place just at the base of Canary Wharf (inside) that did a cracking salt beef sandwich!

I live in sweden now, and have not yet found a single salt beef sandwich anywhere.

There is a cafe down Wanstead high street called Delicataste that does delicious salt beef sandwiches. I recommend it!
