UAL Filet Mignon - another variation
It seems like UAL is always offering filet mignon as one of its business class meal selections, which can get a bit tiring after a while. But today for lunch, I noticed that they offered another variation: "applewood smoked bacon wrapped filet mignon with wild mushrooms, oven-roasted fingerling potatoes and sauteed green beans with shallots and almonds." Although one can't complain about bacon, the filet was still a bit boring until dousing the sauce on it (I usually don't like sauces on my steaks), after which it wasn't too bad. But the green beans were overdone, and I hardly touched the potatoes.
There were some interesting starters though: "smoked salmon and Black Forest ham with olive and feta cheese stuffed mushrooms, balsamic Dijon vinaigrette, fresh seasonal greens, country ranch dressing." In particular, the olive and feta cheese mushroom was pretty good, although I guess I'm always a sucker for mushrooms, as well as for cheese. By putting the two together, it became a no-brainer.
It's also kinda funny how United keeps putting little advertisements in your food trays too. I guess they can use all the revenue they can get.
