flight food: sfo to hkg

The whole reason why we ended up in Hong Kong was because of awesome fare deals on Singapore Airlines. The round trip flight set us back only USD770. What a deal!

In true fashion I took plenty of pictures of the plane food. Even though we boarded past midnight, we were still served a super late dinner. I picked the pesto pasta with chicken and mushrooms. Let’s call it oily but edible. Not the worst plane food ever but certainly not the best.

It came with coleslaw with a slab of ham and strawberry cheesecake (no ice cream this time, boo). I skipped the ham but generally liked the coleslaw. I missed the usual ice cream dessert but thought the cheesecake was an acceptable substitute. Creamy but not too sweet.

A few movies and a 5 hour nap later, they served the pre-touch down meal. Lor mai kai, glutinous rice with chicken and mushrooms wrapped in a banana leaf, and har kow, shrimp dumplings, were both delicious. I didn’t like the bean-y things in the lor mai kai so I picked them out. The har kow was surprisingly good. The meal lived up to Singapore’s reputation of good plane food.

If you’re interested, I watched My Father (the Korean movie with Daniel Henney, snooze), Ratatouille (v. cute), and The Secret (the Jay Chou movie, sounded boring but was v. romantic and the piano playing is hot).
