Two airlines. Two lounges. Two taco bars. Who wins at LAX, United or Delta?
Regular readers of the blog know that I love tacos. Like, love to the point of eating tacos multiple days per week. What can I say? I was born and raised in Los Angeles…
I’m partial to the Mexican or Tex-Mex variant, but there are all sorts of tacos. One type of taco that is quickly gaining popularity in LA is the Korean beef taco. LA has a sizable Korean population and all the time I see new Korean taco trucks popping up.
So it is quite fitting that United and Delta, two airlines with hubs in Los Angeles, have introduced tacos to their respective clubs.
United has added Korean beef tacos to its Terminal 7 lounge. While the toppings pictured below are intended for the soup, you can add ingredients to build up a nice a taco.
Meanwhile, Delta has added Mexican tacos to its Terminal 2 lounge. Toppings include shredded chicken in a red sauce, cotija cheese, cilantro, lime, and pineapple.
Delta also has tortilla chips with a beautiful verde sauce or hot queso cheese sauce.
I greatly preferred the Delta tacos, but kudos to both United and Delta for thinking outside the soup, salad, and sandwich box to offer not just “real” food, but real LA food.
By the way, Delta and United are not the only games in town. Both the oneworld and Star Alliance lounges in the Tom Bradley International Terminal offers tacos (less regularly in the Star Alliance lounge).
