All around the Yamanote

| No Comments

All around the Yamanote line, alert riders will notice old-fashioned metal signs advertising Nozaki's Corned Beef. The ads look like they've been there a long, long time.

Despite the ads, I'd never seen the product anywhere. I expected to find it near the packaged sliced hams and sausages in the grocery cooler, but it wasn't there. That's because it was on the shelves with the SPAM and Vienna sausages.

It's surprisingly good for canned meat. It has the texture of shredded corned beef and tastes just like corned beef from the deli. It made a filling breakfast, fried up, topped with some melted cheese and egg, and served between slices of toast.
