Egg sandwich and potato salad from Cartet - $9.87
So I have a few beefs to deal with here about Cartet. First, the obvious spelling mistakes.
Hello, "canpagne" bread? If you are going to sell a sandwich for that much money, please spell check your copy. And SANDWISH? Is my lunch hoping for a beach vacation?
Secondly, the potato salad. It used to be filled with juicy ham and curd cheese and had a nice creamy dressing. Now it's half the size (for only 80 cents less) and it's made with hard bacon and roasted potatoes. Basically, if you eat it cold, it's all dry and crunchy. NOT cool, Cartet.
It used to be enough for a full meal. Not anymore. I complained about it to the guy in charge, and he hummed and was all "heeee ehehe" about it. Obviously, he knew they are pushing it too far. Yes, the people who work in the Old Port have money, but $4 for 3/4 cup of dry potato salad is just ridiculous.
And thus ends the Big Potato Salad Rant of 2010.
