The Corned Beef House is a restaurant that has been serving exceptional corned beef and smoked meat sandwiches since 1978. I was at the restaurant recently and was extremely impressed with the great corned beef and smoked meat sandwiches. I even tried a smoked meat poutine that I liked too. The restaurant spices, smokes, and steams their meat in house and it is really tender and delicious. The sandwiches are huge. The smallest one on the menu is 7 oz (they come in 3 sizes), and unless you have a gargantuan appetite, it’s probably plenty big. Sides, however, such as fries, are extra. I was amazed that you could get a smoked meat sandwich this good in Toronto without making the trip to Montreal.
The address of the restaurant is:
Corned Beef House
270 Adelaide Street West
Toronto, ON M5H 1X6
From the Corned Beef House web site:
So what’s the difference between Corned Beef and Smoked Meat?
Both are made from same cut of brisket, but thats where the commonality ends. Corned Beef is a misnomer, since it has nothing to do with corn; the cut is placed in a vat of water mixed with large kernels of salt and spices. Smoked Meat, on the other hand, is first cured and then a thick paste of spices is worked into the meat; it is placed inside a smoker to allow the meat to absorb those flavours. At Corned Beef House, all the ingredients are fresh and are prepared without preservatives. The result is a smokin sandwich, piled high, and garnished with a crunchy pickle.
