We don’t use this word lightly, but whoever first invented the sandwich was a genius. A bloody champion of crust. A messiah of bread. And if you’re looking for a proper sandwich near Farringdon, Tongue And Brisket on Leather Lane is a great bet. This isn’t the kind of sad sarnie shop that’ll leave you questioning exactly how many hours, minutes, and seconds there is until dinner. This is a place for whole schnitzels, and piles of salt beef (pro-tip: ask for lots and lots of mustard) inside rye. That being said, if you’re looking for some suave interior design then Tongue And Brisket might not be for you, but if it’s a proper sandwich you’re after, they’ve got you covered.
