Haven't had the CCR version but the AA version is rubbish.

Yes, some of the top chefs have 'elevated' comfort foods such as burgers and mac & cheese by adding luxury ingredients - however, by the time it trickles down to the likes of BA and AA the ingredients become mass market. AA claims lobster in its mac & cheese but the two times i had it the only lobster I could fine was clearly scrap meat.

I understand from a friend who runs a steakhouse lobster mac and cheese or mashed potatoes and lobster are two very high margin dishes as it is scrap lobster that's used - although I imagine (hope) they use better cheeses.

I'm sure it makes the menu because it sounds trendy and is cheap.

What about the larger breakfast menu? Has that changed (it certainly hadn't when I was there on Monday)?

BA might well consider to add some pairing wine to its wine offering at the CCR. An equally 'very premium' Beaujolais goes very well with the Mac&Cheese and this would save BA again some pennies.

Not sure if the California Eggs Benedict is new or not so apologies if seen before, but this is what it looked like the other week.



Note this was the 'double' egg portion. Excellent eggs, a really pleasing dish and great presentation.

I had my first CCR experience on Sunday on the BA273 service to SAN. We were there a little too early for the lunch menu, so we had to make do with the breakfast menu. My wife had the Californian eggs Benedict which looked somewhat similar to the photo above and I had the scrambled eggs smoked salmon which I must admit didn't look too appetising as the eggs were rather "wet" and loose.

By the time we'd finished breakfast and had both had our massages, it was time to head down to the duty free and then onto the schlep through the tunnel to terminal B, so we didn't even get to see the lunch menu, though my wife had a quick perusal of the lounge menu and didnt think it looked too bad.

Not seeing enough love on here for the Mac and Cheese. I had it a couple of times last week and it was amazing! Arguably not exactly a 'premium' entry on the menu, but soooo tasty

Thanks. This is exactly what I have for breakfast now including the double eggs. I must admit I haven't done a photo guide for the breakfast options (I should get on to that), but this is very useful as it probably isn't exactly clear what the Concorde eggs benedict or the California eggs benedict look like.
