Tater tots, tomato, fruit, yogurt, coffee. Complimentary
San Francisco (SFO) to Auckland (AKL), Air New Zealand
Airline breakfasts are never good, and this was no exception. The omelet had that weird dry and spongy texture, and the tater tots were super dry too. I didn’t even try the yogurt.
Espresso Bar by Atomic, Auckland Airport (AKL)
I liked the look of this cookie, but it was way too sweet. That pink frosting and additional sugar was way too much sucrose. I liked the texture of the cookie though.
Latte. $4.90 NZD
Plums, powdered sugar. $8
Porcellino’s Craft Butcher, Memphis TN
Mmm, this Dutch baby was delicious! I loved its texture and the plums tasted great! It wasn’t too sweet so I thought it was perfect.
12 oz $6
Barista Parlor, Nashville TN
I loved the multi-heart foam art on this latte. And the latte was really tasty too!
Toasted waffle filled with caramel, cinnamon and bourbon vanilla. Served with coffee. Complimentary
Dulles (IAD) to Chicago (SFO), United Airlines
United has been giving these out for a while now, and I really like them. They’re not too sweet and I like its soft, chewy texture.
Shortbread chocolate chip cookie, coffee, water. Complimentary
Porter Airlines Lounge, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ)
I like that the gate area at this airport has complimentary drinks and snacks. I think more airlines should do this. It’s super convenient and people were actually respectful about not taking too much food.
Blood orange, crystallized cocoa, sugared almonds. Mesibah menu $53 per person
Zahav, Philadelphia PA
I really enjoyed this dessert. Under the hardened chocolate shell was a silky, coffee flavored custard that just melted in your mouth. Such a wonderful way to end a glorious meal at Zahav. Thank you, Zahav! Until next time.
Chocolate genache with cinnamon, chocolate shortbread cookie and coffee powder, marshmallow spread, malted chocolate ice cream, coffee gel. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD
This dessert had so many delicious components! And it was visually interesting. All the flavors and textures danced in my mouth and kept me wanting more!
Served with coffee and water. Menu completo €9.95
Espressamente Illy, Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN)
This ham sandwich was good, and was a nice size. I just felt really hurried to eat it up considering the lack of seating and the busy shop.
Espressamente Illy, San Francisco CA
This was really rich and delicious. I loved that it was large and sticky, and the bun was substantial enough to hold up to the generous helping of nutella.
Lightly fried French pastry topped with powdered sugar. $5
The Parish Cafe, Healdsburg CA
Mmm, I love beignets. These were pretty good, but they weren’t as fluffy as I like them. They tasted great with the coffee though.
Fami-Li-Hood Kitchen, Mutianyu Village CHINA
I liked this soup. It was warm and hearty and tasted great especially with snow falling outside. It was more vinegar-y than those I’ve had in the U.S., but I liked it that way. Overall, it wasn’t too different from the U.S. versions I’m used to.
