    Holy crap. That's just WRONG, and I LOVE mayo. But on corned beef? What
    are they, nuts?

    Default Mayonnaise on corned beef sandwich -- ick

    I go into a long-established hofbrau-type restaurant (Brennan's,
    in Berkeley Ca) and order a half a corned beef sanfwich on light rye.
    Now I confess it's been five or more years since I've eaten there,
    but they were reliable in the past.

    So the otherwise perfectly-good sandwich came with mayonaisse on it,
    leaving me the choice of complaining, or trying to blot it off with a
    napkin (I did the latter).

    Am I confused, or is this completely unreasonable? (This place has
    mustard out by the tables so I don't expect anything condiments
    to be on the sandwich.)

    I don't think it said "comes with mayo" anywhere. The menu is up
    on a board in the hof-brau area. But since I was assuming their menu
    offerings were the same as they always had been, perhaps I didn't
    acutally look.

    I suspect they gave you a previously rejected sandwich. I'm assuming
    you didn't watch them assembling it; otherwise you would have shrieked
    in horror. Did it appear amazingly quickly? Then, you've been Fry'sed.

    Alternately, the assembler might have been on autopilot. If Brennan's
    is like Harry's, the condiments on the table do not include
    mayonnaise. If he was cued up to put some on, he might have just
    followed through.

    They did assemble it in front of me, but I did not manage to observe
    them slapping on the mayonaisse.

    I think autopilot is right.

    Oh, ick indeed. Why on earth would they glop mayonnaise on your
    sandwich? I would have complained.

    Same here, mayo is fine with me but I'm pretty surprised it would
    just show up on a corned beef sandwich when mustard is the expected
    condiment.

    And I'd happily have mayo on my fries, especially mixed with ketchup.

    If you're in my area (NorCal / east bay), and you want something
    like a corned beef, here's a tip: The Junket, in El Cerrito plaza.
    A righteous place that has been there for decades.

    Mustard is good but mayonnaise that is brimming with fresh horseradish
    sets well also.

    You're in the Bay Area and people seem to be addicted to mayonnaise
    here. I'd never heard of putting mayo on *hamburgers* (which still
    revolts me as much as mayo on corned beef revolts you), but it was the
    norm here - even when I arrived back in the '60s.

    I like that kind of sandwich, but I need to be forewarned so I can
    share.

    I ate there about 5 yrs ago. Got the french dip and was not impressed.
    Never been back. As for your corned beef, that's wrong. Ida taken it

    The rumor is that McDonald's "special sauce" is basically half mayo
    and half Miracle Whip, so not limited to the Bay Area.
