Belgium biscuit - Espresso Bar by Atomic
$3.50 NZD
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.

Pre-flight snacks – Porter Airlines Lounge

Pre-flight snacks - Porter Airlines Lounge
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.

Open faced warm organic egg salad sandwich – Red Dog Restaurant

Open faced warm organic egg salad sandwich - Red Dog Restaurant
1/2 sandwich, provolone cheese, anchovy-garlic butter. Lunch combo $12
Red Dog Restaurant, San Francisco CA

This was good, but it’s the exact same egg salad sandwich that they serve at Il Cane Rosso which is the same restaurant group. If you’d had one, you really don’t need the other. 7×7 is kinda lame when they do this!

This hash was really flavorful, but the salmon was on the overcooked side. Kinda sad because I liked everything else about it.
