Ham, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. 5,90€ La Cooperative, Paris FR
After a long day of sightseeing, we really needed some food on our way back to the hotel. We came across La Cooperative on our walk from the Louvre. It looked like a cute cafe and the clientele appeared to be a mixture of business people, locals and tourists so we decided to give it a try. The food was fairly good, but the service was really erratic. We were served by two different waiters both of whom were really difficult to wave down when we needed anything.
While this sandwich was pretty standard, the bread was really good. I also prefer the mayonnaise they use in France. It has a better consistency and flavor.
Coca-Cola light. 50 cl 7,20€
Kir au Sauvignon. 25 cl 5,70€
OK, I’m still baffled why drinks are SO expensive here! We spent more money on soda and water than we did our food. Am I just being a ridiculous American that I think this is outrageous?!
Fountain of Warsaw, Jardins du Trocadero. The Gardens of the Trocadero are beautiful and a great place to view the Eiffel Tower and take photos. Of course I did a customary “jump” photo with the tower in the background, lol.
Maine lobster served with a touch of mayo and lemon and topped with secret spice blend on toasted New England-style split-top bun. Medium $17 Lobster ME, Las Vegas NV
This sandwich was just OK. The lobster quality was marginal, definitely from previously frozen lobster since it had a squishy texture. The spice blend they used was tasty, but the sandwich did not have enough lobster flavor. You mostly tasted butter.
