Why Salt Beef Sandwich Is A London Favorite

  • Published on Feb 4, 2018
  • The salt beef sandwich from Beigel Bake is London's best cheap eat. Beigel Bake hasn't changed its recipe since 1979, and for good reason: the shop has earned its fame by filling Londoners' stomachs 24/7.

    I just ate from this shop an hour ago for my friends birthday based on this video. Unfortunately, we ended up hating it. We took a few bites and it was disgusting, we ended up throwing the rest away. This video makes it look better than it really tastes. Take Caution peeps.

    • Bo Zo
      Bo Zo 3 months ago

      This cut of beef starts out relly tough and gets more tender the longer it's cooked. It isn't really boiled, more like slowly simmered. The text is incorrect.

    Is this just what we Americans call corned beef? Nothing wrong if it is. We don't have any delis where I live, but I've made it myself a few times by steaming it in a colander over a boiling pot and it looks just like this.

      @Frederick Röders kosher is set of rules for example- dairy and meat don't go together as per rules. That prevents bloated stomach and many other complications and all over good for gut health.
