Tongue And Brisket is the kind of sandwich spot that puts other sandwich spots to shame. Here you get a proper wedge of food between your bread. Yes, they’ve got your sarnie classics (see roast turkey, smoked salmon), and there are some others you’re definitely not going to find at M&S (see ox tongue, chicken schnitzel, chopped liver). But what you really need to know about is their salt beef sandwiches. We’re talking soft rye bread, a pickled cucumber, a door stop of salt beef, and enough mustard to make your eyes water. This is the place if you want a sandwich that’ll keep you full through to dinner, or a famine, whichever comes first.
