Before bread, sandwiches were haphazardly supported by two hands high-fiving. Tuck toppings between life-saving bread layers with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get sandwich platters for two at Corned Beef House (up to a $29.80 value).
Each sandwich platter (up to a $14.90 value) includes:
- Choice of any 7-ounce sandwich
- Fries or potato salad
- Coleslaw and kosher dill pickle<p>
Since its start in 1978, Corned Beef House continues to heap eight centimetres of freshly cut and steamed meat between thick, freshly baked bread to create its signature two-fisted sandwiches. Platters include the shop’s popular Montreal smoked meat and corned beef ($13.25) sheared from preservative-free brisket before it’s stacked by construction crane onto a choice of light or dark rye, onion or regular kaiser, or marble bread. More platter options abound, such as the smoked turkey breast ($13.50) and the reuben ($14.90), all accompanied by a choice of fries or potato salad, plus coleslaw and a crisp, oversized kosher dill pickle.
Though not applicable to today’s Groupon, Corned Beef House hosts its Man Vs. Sandwich contest every Monday, challenging diners to eat a 40-ounce sandwich of their choice—including bread and pickle—within one hour. Victors receive the meal free; non-victors must shake hands with the remaining sandwich and pay $29.95.
