Jake sandwich – St. Germain Bistro & Cafe

Jake sandwich St. Germain Bistro & Cafe
Chicken, tahini sauce, walnuts, tomato, spinach, carrot, and hummus on a pita. Served with a watermelon, cucumber and radish salad. $10.32
St. Germain Bistro & Cafe, Old San Juan, PUERTO RICO

This was the weirdest sandwich I’ve ever had. The combination of ingredients wasn’t necessarily bad, but the it made for a dense mass with an odd texture. I would have preferred less of the sandwich and more of the delicious watermelon salad!

Discoverer statue Plaza de Colon

“Discoverer” statue of Christopher Columbus at the Plaza de Colon. This plaza marks what I think is the entrance to the main section of Old San Juan. Most of the traffic into this area passes by this plaza on the way to the nearby hotels and restaurants. The square isn’t very large, but the pillar and statue in the middle of the square stands prominently over the neighboring buildings.

Ceviche – St. Germain Bistro & Cafe

Ceviche St. Germain Bistro & Cafe

Mahi mahi, shrimp, red onion and bell peppers cured in lime juice. Garnished with apple slices. $11.68
St. Germain Bistro & Cafe, Old San Juan, PUERTO RICO

This tasted all right, but the mahi mahi was starting to get squishy and have a grainy texture. The flavors were there though.

San Juan Bay
Looking out onto the San Juan Bay along the Paseo de la Princesa. This was near the start of a pleasant waterfront stroll on the Paseo. The shade trees were abundant in this section, but were nonexistent on the latter portion of the Paseo.

Cocktails – St. Germain Bistro & Cafe

Caipiroska St. Germain Bistro & Cafe
Caipiroska – crushed lime and vodka. $5.81

House margarita St. Germain Bistro & Cafe
House margarita – made with fresh orange juice. $6.85
St. Germain Bistro & Cafe, Old San Juan, PUERTO RICO

These tasted weak and watered down. I did enjoy the flavor of the house margarita at least, but the caipiroska was forgettable.

St. Germain Bistro & Cafe

View of the green building across the street from our table inside St. Germain. I loved all the brightly painted buildings in this town. They helped create a fun atmosphere while walking around.
