    Okay I did a search and couldn't find anything and it wasn't here the last time I came through, but I just walked into the HKG UC to find that they have a taco bar. Not sure if this is permanent or temporary or how long it has been here.

    They had beef tacos with hard shells and a good amount of toppings (cheese, salsa, guac, sour cream, etc.). Taco was on par with Taco Bell, which after being on the road for a few weeks was fine with me, although I limited myself to a single helping as I know I will be stopping for some proper Mexican food back in CA in only a few hours.

    At least they were smart enough not to have re-fried beans accompany the taco bar.

    A step up from carrot sticks and yogurt-covered raisins!

    The HKG UC typically has pretty good hot offerings, including dim sum, fried rice and fried noodles. Not your typical UC.

    I think the HKG UC is one of the best in the system next to NRT and their cheap sushi. :D

    Cheap, indeed. Much better idea to eat at the "last chance sushi" (not its real name but that's what's on the sign) shop across the hall in the terminal. The stuff in the lounge is pretty bad.

    Do they rate like Jack in the Box tacos, which are only good during and after consuming alcohol?

    Well, that is certainly true of Taco Bell tacos. So by the transitive property of crappy tacos, it should be true of these as well. ;)

    Seems in line with UA's general approach.

    You can make a taco so cheap no one will eat it. Or something like that.

    Sent from a place using a fruit thing.
