They're pretty good actually as hotdogs go. I think you're thinking of their polish sausages.

You have it backwards. The hotdogs used to be great, but then they went with the house brand to save money, and now the polish are by far the better ones.

The Japanese Costco foodcourt has the hot dog combo for 180yen and slices of pizza are 300 yen, they used to be 250 yen but they raised the price a few years ago. They also used to have good Chicken Provolone sandwiches but changed them to Chicken Bakes. They have Bulgogi bakes as well which are pretty good and recently changed the recipe to it.

When did they change the bulgogi bake? That thing was amazing, and I always make sure to get one when I'm in Tokyo/Seoul.

To be honest there's nothing really exciting about the Japanese version compared to other countries.

Uhhh, bulgogi bake is the second best bake that Costco has ever done. The carne asada one was of course the best of all time, but from talking to one of the food court supervisors they got rid of it because it was too labor intensive to make.

The polish dogs are tasty, but nothing is as good as the bulgogi bake. The carne asada bake was delicious too, but I haven't seen one in years.

I've gone to Cancun and Punta Cana through them, and I've gotten free upgrades and Costco cash cards from my executive membership, would definitely keep using them.

Also they have partnerships with Hyatt and Best Western so consider that for a discount whenever you need to travel somewhere.

I haven't done a cruise, but I did a flight+hotel package, and it included airport transfers which was nice. The package was about $400 less than what I would have paid for cash, and the hotel even gave us a bottle of fake champagne at check in.

Look, here, calm the hell down, here it is. This is it. It's a pretty sizeable burger. Got the sauce on the side. It was some kind of darker and more granular thousand island. As far as a burger goes it gets a solid A-. Basically a Costco Big Mac. Linked for UNFILTERED SHEER BURG SIZE.

Not really cool at all because it kept prices high and made it a lot more trouble to buy. Now a lot of booze is cheaper and can be found in many more places. It's a win-win, really.

Some people hate it because the taxes are higher now too, but overall it's cheaper. The taxes do suck though.

So one of my local costcos has poke salad and/or straight up sashimi in their refrigerated prepared foods. Anyone have experience before i drop 15 bucks on lovely tasting fish? (Obviously​ getting a dog and a combo slice either way)

The ahi poke is pretty good, and it makes a nice meal. A proper Hawaiian one is better, but it's not bad at all.

Does Costco carry Teriyaki Sauce? I found plenty of soy sauce, and some Mr Yoshidas marinade (which seemed like a thicc bbq/teriyaki hybrid), but nothing else. I had to make it a brief 'scto trip but I think I went up and down all the aisles.

Yes, but only in the 5 gallon pail. It's one aisle over from the 25 lb bag of rice.

Except the Seattle location moved, so it's really a different number now. They were just whiny bitches about it and demanded to keep the old number.

Just wondering if we may ever see Kirkland brand Kush one day.

The entire C level would have to retire before that happens, they are all way too conservative for that. And for that matter, probably the tier below them would need to go as well, since they are most likely all groomed replacements too.

Costco Iceland opened this week. Over 40k memberships sold, the island only has 330k people. They were running out of shopping carts on Thursday :getin:

I forget where I heard the quote from, but the entire reason they opened the Iceland one is because a significant percentage of the Newfie sales were to Icelandic fishermen.

The bun was soggy, and the only options were ketchup or onions. I've decided that Costco in the UK does not know how to make a proper dog.

The cottage pie is 90% potatoes, and the beef chili on the jacket potato has so much sugar that it tastes sweet. The pizza is the best one of the lot.

The problem I had with trying to use the Costco vacation packages is that it only lets you price a couple of destinations online, for anything else you need to call them. I'm far too lazy to call and speak to someone, I'd rather do my trip planning online.
