A Mountain of Corned Beef
This sandwich is fairly unreal, and you're only seeing half of it. My only problem with it is that you can't actually eat it as a sandwich. No one's mouth should open that wide...ever. So, instead I had to cut it up into more bite size portions. Also, the bread was a little on the dry side.
However, the corned beef was so freaking fantastic. Not too salty and really thinly sliced. Sometimes corned beef can taste like a salt lick, but Slyman's was the perfect amount of salt without going overboard. Although, there must have actually been a lot of salt on it because I wore that sandwich in my ankles for a few days afterwards. Slyman's may give you kankles is all I'm saying. The meat wasn't dry at all, but wasn't juicy as to make the bread soggy. Which is a huge issue for Mike. Mike detests soggy bread, which is why I always tease him that I'm going to make him bread pudding for dessert.
In addition to the sandwich we ordered a basket of fries, which can be seen in the back of the photo. These were also perfect. They fried them to the point of crunchiness, which I love.
Overall, I'm not sure the Slyman's corned beef is totally worth going out of your way, but it's always fun to say you've tried it. Where else can you get a mountain of corned beef on a plate?
