I sat down at Le Roi et son Fou (The King and his Jester), a small bistro, looked over the menu and found just what I wanted - a sandwich with jambon or ham. I ordered it (and a glass of red wine), under the impression that it would be a traditional sandwich, i.e. a thick slice of ham, maybe a little mayonnaise and a cornichons, squeezed in between two soft slices of fine white bread.

Quiche with goat's cheese at Place Gayot
Alsace is widely known for its pies or quiche. The neigbouring province, Lorraine, has even one named after it. At place Gayot we found Restaurant La Table du Gayot, a small tavern and bar, and we decided to order to try one type of this Alsatian specialty.
We looked through the small lunch menu, and decided to try a quiche with goat's cheese, a nice surprise.
It had that agreeable taste released by these cheeses, some like them, others do not. A delicious creamy consistency, often difficult to achieve, and the price? Equally agreeable. The quiche served at Restaurant La Table du Gayot that day was a great bargain at lunch.
