flight food

I’m finally back from my Europe adventures and have tons of food pics to share! They’re coming in no particular order but I figured the best way to start off was the same way you start any trip – at the airport and on the plane.

San Francisco to Frankfurt: chicken and gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, lettuce (aka salad), carrot cake, bread roll

This was served by not-so-happy United Airlines flight attendants. Like most United food, it was too salty. The chicken had too much lemongrass or something that was way overpowering, but overall it was not bad. I steered clear of the requisite hard bread roll and chomped on the lettuce they were passing of as salad. The carrot cake was unremarkable.

San Francisco to Frankfurt: ham and cheese croissant, fruit cup

This was thrown onto my tray by the aforementioned not-so-happy flight attendants. It didn’t taste too bad (then again I’m not hard to please) but it did not look tasty. Had I not been hungry from the 10 hour flight I would not have touched it.

Rome to Athens: wrap, cheese sandwiches, lemon cake

I already have beef with Olympic Airlines since they changed our flight to Santorini no less than 4 times. The food they served was straight up strange. There were 2 cheese sandwiches slathered with mayo and one wrap with more mayo and some unidentifiable meat product. For dessert, a mostly meringue/cream lemon cake that had a 2mm burnt cake part at the bottom. Not a fan.

Athens to Frankfurt: pasta, bread roll

Lovely Lufthansa. The pasta was kinda oily but simple and pretty tasty. The bread was hard as a rock and had a strange grass-y aftertaste. Not sure what that’s about.
