Brass Rail Salt Beef Heaven

I’ve been looking for some sort of Katz deli here in London, so a lazy Saturday with no plans at all I decided to go investigate a couple places I had in a list for a while. One of them was The Brass Rail in Selfridges. A simple menu of sandwiches in a corner of the food hall.

Brass Rail

The procedure is quite simple, grab a tray do the queue, and then shoot to the beef carver what you want. That includes the size, the type of bread, the meat, type of mustard, and finally the classic gherkin. In less than 10 seconds you decide the succulent meat sandwich you will have. I went for two halves, but which ones to get salt beef, tongue, or pastrami, at the end I chose salt beef and pastrami. English mustard in a rye completed my option.

Salt Beef Paradise

Amazing, I just love it, will be coming back regularly there. Simple, great flavours, and the closest I have found for the Kosher style New Yorker deli.

Simple and Tasty

Salt Beef and Pastrami

All these meats remind me the Seinfeld episode “The Race”.

Kramer: Each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.
Mickey: What does that mean?
Kramer: Well, if you've got needs and abilities that's a pretty good combination.
Mickey: So what if I want to open up a delicatessen?
Kramer: There are no delicatessens under Communism.
Mickey: Why not?
Kramer: Well, because the meats are divided into a class system. You got Pastrami and Corned Beef in one class, and Salami and Bologna in another. That's not right.
Mickey: So you can't get Corned Beef?
Kramer: Well, you know, if you're in the Politburo, maybe.
