SO, is there any retail shop in the North Bay/SF area that carries corned beef tongue?

      Thanks for the link, but my craving comes from years teaching in the Bronx, and
      living on the Upper West Side. Corned beef tongue was a staple in the school lunch programs (and the kids had never heard of nor ever eaten corned beef brisket), and
      a favorite nosh was a fresser tongue sandwich.
      My son now lives in Beverly Hills, and a lunch at Nate and Al's rekindled the old
      taste memories - that sandwich and a Dr. Brown's Cel-rey soda.
      From looking over the SF board, doesn't sound like I can satisfy this craving nearby.
      And I have searched for a mail-order source, but Hebrew National and Zabars don't offer whole tongues...

        I'd been meaning to pick up the corned tongue, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Would love to hear what you think of it.

          Best place I've found online is russaks.com . I've found a few that will sell sliced by the pound, but this place sells whole corned beef tongues in 2 sizes. (not a bad price either, considering I've seen beef tongues sell for $60+
