Titanic’s Last Lunch Menu Up For Auction at $150K

An original copy of the Titanic’s last lunch menu is on the auction block and is expected to fetch over $150,000.

The sale is being held by the auctioneers to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on March 31.

The menu was saved by a passenger who tucked the menu into her handbag as a souvenir of their travels. She survived the wreck and the menu has stayed with the family ever since.

It includes salmon mayonnaise, eggs Argenteuil (eggs with fresh asparagus tips and cream sauce), grilled mutton chops, corned ox tongue and jacket potatoes.

Corned Ox Tongue

Definitely not what you’d find on today’s cruise ships.

  1. Would you ever consider eating at the Middle Eastern restaurant downtown? I’d like a review but just don’t know if I can muster up to being the first person I know going there. It’s located by Joe Blacks.

  2. Adam,. I eat Babylon food all the time. Get the beef shawarma, sambousek, and ask for the kupa (cracked wheat filled with meat). Some misses, but a lot of gems if you know what to order. Oh, and the dolmas are great.

    We take out from there all the time.
