Double double burger loaded - In-N-Out Burger
Two 100% pure beef patties, lettuce, tomato, spread, two slices of American cheese on a freshly baked bun.  “Animal style” with extra spread, pickles, and grilled onions. “With chopped chilies” adds slices of spicy yellow pickled chili peppers. And I also requested a side of peppers, lol. $3.40

OK, so I ordered this double double burger “animal style with chopped chilies”. Omg, it was huge and amazing!!! My co-worker recently told me about the chilies option on their hidden menu. Well I love spicy peppers so I thought I’d give it a try. This burger definitely filled me up, and it was messy and fabulous. The yellow chilies actually had some kick too! I was expecting mild pepperoncini slices, but these had some heat to them. Oh, how I love you In-N-Out!

Beef roll ups – L’Arganier

Beef roll ups - L'Arganier
Flatbread filled with beef, cheese, tomato, pickle. Complimentary
L’Arganier, Paris FR

We had sat down outside this restaurant for a quick drink break from walking around. After we had ordered our drinks, the waitress brought us this plate of roll ups which we weren’t expecting. We really liked her and thought that this was cute. We noticed that we were the only table to get the complimentary snacks in our area and we really weren’t sure why. It’s times like this when it would’ve been great to know French. 🙂

I really liked this smoked salmon bialy. The beer cream cheese had great flavor and wasn’t as heavy as normal cream cheese. The salmon also seemed lighter and fresher. Overall, it was a great way to start the day.
