Lunch on UA 153 today SFO-IAH. A very tasty "creole shrimp" (basically shrimp and grits). Hadn't seen this upthread unless I missed it. Dessert was raspberry sorbet rather than cookie. I don't think I have had sorbet before on SFO-IAH (but it's not a route I take very often). Great crew, attentive and constant re-fills the whole flight.

IAH-MSP breakfast sandwich

In first IAH-MSP on ERJ-175.

Offered breakfast sandwich or fruit plate. Went with breakfast sandwich. Don't do it.

It is cold, sweet bread, odd-tasting "white" dressing (cream cheese?) ham, and maybe some apricot spread.

There was no isolation or combination of components that was edible. A quick glance around the cabin suggested no one was finishing it.

When mentioned it to the FA, she said, "Yeah, it is weird".

Maybe if it was heated, with cheese, on non-sweet bread, without odd dressing and apricot...you know, a ham and cheese sandwich.

No ovens on UAX planes, unfortunately.

After my SFO-EWR and EWR-SFO flights this past weekend, my recommendation continues to be "eat before you fly."

Salads were okay but the entrees (hangar steak, turbot with a weird bbq sauce) were not good at all.

Interesting - the turbot dish is probably one of the better meals in the sky.

I've had a different turbot dish that I liked on international long-haul. This one not only had a very weird and unappealing asian bbq sauce, it also had a very strong and off-putting fishy smell.

Maybe it's me, but fish + BBQ sauce does not appeal to me all. It just seems like a weird combo that can't work.

I actually had both versions and enjoyed both, but I'm also a big fan of Asian BBQ/hoisin based sauces. And yes, it's fishy-smelling.

I wish the 9:45-10:15 AM DEN-East Coast bank served lunch instead of breakfast, like those flights used to. If you're connecting from the West Coast, you've already had breakfast on the first segment anyways.

I've had both and loved them as well but they have been awful at other times; the same goes for the steak; bad QA/QC? IME it's a 50/50 shot whether the main dinner meal on PS will be decent or not.
