Succulent morsels of roasted pork nestled atop sweet banana peppers, draped with sheer slices of smoked ham, Swiss cheese, and caramelized onions, all melted together between a hot press. On a lightly tasted baguette slathered with aioli (seasoned mayo), fresh cilantro, and crowned with caramelized onions. $8.95 Paseo, Seattle WA
Omg, this sandwich was AMAZING! It had everything that I love, and it was overflowing with flavor. I could eat this every day. I’d probably die of a heart attack, but at least I’d die happy. Hehe. 🙂
Large tree with hanging tassel inflorescences. Anybody know what kind of tree this is?
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.
This delicious, no frills sandwich is sliced to order and pretty large for six bucks! The meats are yummy and they put a good amount of it in the sammy. Yay! Next time I’ll probably get the soft sourdough bread though. This was a little too hard for me, especially since I didn’t put any condiments on it.
It’s piled up high on our deli rye bread and includes lettuce, sliced tomato. Our Swiss cheese has less holes! Served with potato salad. $12.95 Sherman’s Deli and Bakery, Palm Springs CA
Mmm! I can’t say enough about the awesome sandwiches at Sherman’s. The meats are perfect and the rye bread tastes SO good. Definitely bring your appetite!
Pickles and sauerkraut. Complimentary. I like that these aren’t overly pickled. They’re delicious!
Iced tea. $2.65
“Forever Marilyn” sculpture by Seward Johnson. This 26-foot tall statue of Marilyn Monroe (a la The Seven Year Itch) currently stands in downtown Palm Springs on Palm Canyon Drive. It’s previous site was in Pioneer Court on Michigan Avenue in Chicago.
Oven roasted turkey and imported ham with honey mustard dressing, crispy bacon, lettuce, toamto, melted swiss and cheddar cheeses on toasted wheat, with a side of potato chips and pickle. $7.99 East Bay Deli, North Charleston SC
This sandwich was very large and SUPER tasty, noms! They definitely pack on the meat and I love that they melt the cheeses so they’re nice and gooey. Mmm…
Panini with thinly sliced ham, swiss cheese and sliced pickle, then spread with mustard and grilled on herbed focaccia bread with Classic Lays potato chips. $11.99
Legends of San Francisco Bar & Grill, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
I was NOT impressed. The sandwich as super salty and the ham tasted like low-quality supermarket deli meat. The cheese wasn’t even melted all the way through! Ugh, Terminal 1 really needs to step it up on the food front!
“Wind Portal” art installation, Paul Woolford and Ned Kahn. Located midway down the Bart platform, this piece is composed of thousands of metallic sequins that move with the wind created by incoming Bart trains and aircrafts. It’s a spectacular installation and provides an beautiful San Francisco welcome to weary travelers.
Scrambled eggs with ham, tomato, green onions, and swiss cheese. Served with hashbrowns and fruit (pineapple, blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, cantaloupe, honeydew melon). $11 Toast Eatery, San Francisco CA
Although the fruit is an extra $1.50 substitution, I like that they include plenty of berries! I hate it when restaurants only give you melons as a fruit bowl.
Beautiful San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge from the Marin Headlands.
