I like when the have the herb couscous. The last time I was at DTW they had what looked like little rubbery pearls as the base. I'm not sure what it was but it didn't have any flavor.

I saw that at the MIA club last week, though it seemed half hearted at best. Offered a base of white rice, and the only protein was sliced up grilled chicken.

saw that at MIA yesterday but there were a lot of things you could add beyond chicken like grilled corn, black beans, salsa, jalapeños etc.

None of which is protein. The only proteins they have are chicken (at least it's grilled and not mayonnaise salad) and cheese.

Yeah that's what I was kinda getting at. The SkyClubs I visit most of the time are B and F at ATL, so I suppose I've been getting somewhat spoiled and used to the better food spreads. Though now that I type that I realize that 2017 was probably the year I've visited the most different SCs in a single year.

15 gm protein to 41 gm carbs. That would be a "no".

Not for us plant eaters. That's a main source of protein, along with seeds and nuts.

Probably from the same soup mix.

Pretty decent ziti with marinara and meatballs at DTW last week. They had sweet and sour sauce and BBQ for the meatballs too. Made for a decent dinner.

Perhaps you are not aware, but the Sky Clubs have never, ever, advertised that they offer full meal service. Personally I think that offering both chicken and beans as protein options, along with the other items, is a fantastic upgrade. Please recall that it was not that long ago that all you could get was basically cheese, crackers, pretzels and cookies. Now they are offering fresh food items that one can easily make a meal out of. The Sky Club is not an international first class lounge, so please don't expect to be served a steak. You make customers look like entitled petulant children with your complaint about not having enough protein.

Have had the meatballs at DTW before, though with mac and cheese rather than ziti and also had the same sauces. One of my favorite SC "meals", would take that all day every day plus the cold foods and cheeses and I'd be perfectly happy.

Where did I complain about there not being enough protein? You quoted me pointing out that beans are primarily carbs, not protein. That's a fact.
