I am originally from Philadelphia. Rocky Balboa, Bill Cosby, and I are in good standing. I was wondering if I was losing my taste for corned beef after leaving Philadelphia. No, I just was unable to visit a place that matched my memories. The best place for a corned beef sandwich was on City Line Avenue in West Philadelphia. I have been to the Full Belly Deli on numerous occasions (1070 Brighton Avenue Portland Maine). I have ordered corn beef on DARK rye (pumpernickel) with american cheese and Russian dressing (any kind of rye bread will do....even their bread is excellent!). I think they have cheddar so better yet go with that! Have the corned beef cold. If you like mustard that is fine too. The taste was exact. The texture, the leaness (just right), even the moisture! Trust me, this equals (probably beats!) anything you will find in NY or Philly. The founder was from NY and his recipe hits the bullseye. Also the sandwich is huge (as it was in Philadelphia) Jeff P of NH
