Currito Cucina (Mexican) replaces TGIFridays in the United concourse, didn't try it.
I ate here last week. Horrifying. Terrible. Had a quesadilla which had some fake cheese whose color bore no resemblance to any real cheese and terrible chicken. Ugh.

These days, if you want a bite to eat before flying out of LAX, chances are you'll grab a burger at McDonalds or a muffin at Starbucks. But back in the day, flying was a bit more of a glamorous, leisurely affair.

We made the layovers longer than necessary, though, partly also because we want to see if we can find a place to sleep and partly to find a non-airport place or two to eat. We read BR's very helpful post on the HK airport itself, so now I'm wondering: does anyone know of a "good" (meaning clean/acceptable) place to crash nearby the airport that will also leave open the chance of some good dinners?

I'm surprised there isn't more excitement about this around here. Had an excellent breakfast here recently: eggs Benedict (on toast) came with a delightful red wine sauce, an extremely generous mound of La Quercia prosciutto, and an equally massive hill of arugula. Also got a taste of the breakfast sandwich, which was similarly satisfying. Excellent coffee from Sparrow.
It's clearly an airport operation, not a Publican operation: service is a bit chaotic, eggs described as scrambled arrive in omelet form, etc. Also, breakfast for two came out to $40. But who'd have thought even ten years ago that we'd soon have multiple airport restaurants touting the provenance of their meats and produce?
