SELFRIDGES SALT BEEF BAR: GOOD FRIDAY ON RYE
I have been craving a salt beef sandwich for ages.

No idea why, particularly, apart from the fact that I have wandered past the Brick Lane Beigel Bakery a few times when the queue has been too much for me to bear to pop in and get one and, I was talking with a chum about them the other day who couldn’t eat one because if it didn’t kill him, his doctor would.

So, today, while I was in Selfridges topping up my vast range of skincare products (well, unemployed people can be pretty too) I popped into the food hall and plonked my self at their Salt Beef Bar in its new location.

Not bad at all, but then for £9.50 including a pickle and a bottle of Fentiman’s Ginger Ale, it bloody well would need to be.

Decent beef (from Ireland) and a few slices of Pastrami topped with hot mustard. The rye bread was a little bit doughy but, all in all, not a bad example of the art of the Salt Beef Sandwich although not as good as I remember it being and hardly living up to its self billing as “ world famous” Perhaps only for the price.

My favourite Salt Beef Sandwich used to be in The Nosherie in Hatton Garden. That’s long gone now, so if anyone has any good suggestions……………?

Katz deli is about 3,000 miles away and even I don't go that far for a sarnie

As for Sheffield, you will always have Two Steps F&C's and that is something I always covet

Won't travel a mere 3000 miles for a Katz's sandwich?

Wimp.

Booked my flights today.

Closer to home, Gaby's on Charing Cross Road used to satisfy my SB needs.

Blooms in Golders Green. It's the way forward. Ignore their hideous makeover.
