United Airlines has been making some recent updates to its domestic First Class dining menu. These include several new lunch and dinner options as well as two new breakfast entrees. United serves hot meals on flights over 800 miles in the US, Canada, and the Caribbean.

These new options include:

  • Belgium Waffle with Caramelized Apple and Cranberry Compote
  • Egg Frittata with Potatoes O’Brien, Sausage, and Spinach
  • Chicken Curry Noodle Bowl with Vegetables and Spices
  • Cauliflower Grain Salad with Cauliflower Rice, Zucchini Squash, Avocado Salsa, and Green Chiles
  • Smoked Five-Spice Tofu Bowl with Long Grain Rice, Broccoli, Roasted Peppers, and Cashews in a Teriyaki Sauce
  • Charcuterie Plate with Heritage Prosciutto, Genoa Salami, Mustard, Cornichons, Dried Figs, Crackers, Humboldt Fog, Fontina, and Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Signature BBQ Burger with a Beef Patty, Smoky Bacon, Caramelized Onions, Creamy Grand Cru Cheese, and Sweet Barbecue Sauce on a Brioche Bun

For this flight we were presented with the two breakfast options.

United Saved Meal

We got to try both of the new breakfast choices.

United Waffle

The Belgium Waffle with Caramelized Apple and Cranberry Compote was a bit sweet, but delicious. It wasn’t overcooked and a vast improvement over the French toast that was being served.

Waffle Tray

It came with a fruit bowl, yogurt, and a warm croissant.

Frittata United

The Egg Frittata with Potatoes O’Brien, Sausage, and Spinach was hearty and filling. My husband loved the flavors and seasoning.

Frittata Tray

It came with the same fruit bowl, yogurt, and warm croissant.

United Plane

Anthony’s Take: It’s good to see United is once again investing in catering. Until recently, the meals that were being served never changed and passengers (like yours truly) were tired of the same food on every flight. Preordering meals is working and I like that I now know what I’ll have before I board a flight.
