Cathay Pacific has partnered with Michelin-starred Hong Kong restaurant Duddell’s on a new menu collaboration for premium passengers.
First and business class passengers will be able to sample a range of new dishes as part of Cathay’s “Hong Kong flavours” series.
First class passengers can look forward to a selection of appetisers that will include chilled abalone with black vinegar, minced pork with mixed vegetables, and pomelo served with lettuce wraps and prawn crackers.
New main course options include braised Iberico pork belly with radish, simmered in a glaze of soy sauce and spices, and the classic Chinese banquet dish of wok-fried lobster in white pepper sauce with spring onions and ginger. Cantonese desserts such as chrysanthemum and longan jelly will also be available.
In business class, new appetiser dishes include drunken prawns with aged Huadiao wine, and shredded chicken and jellyfish salad with sesame dressing. Main course options will include steamed halibut with cordyceps flowers, and barramundi fillets with pickled mustard greens in a hot and sour rice noodle soup. Desserts such as ginger milk pudding will round out the experience.
Cathay Pacific general manager customer experience and design Vivian Lo said: “We are very excited to partner with acclaimed restaurant Duddell’s, who shares our core values of thoughtfully curated dining with warm service, to showcase this new culinary experience for our premium customers.
“As Hong Kong’s home airline, we place great importance on serving our customers with authentic local culinary delights through our ‘Hong Kong Flavours’ concept, while also showcasing the diverse range of cuisines our city has to offer. By partnering with renowned Hong Kong restaurants, we hope to give our customers an unforgettable introduction to our city’s culinary offerings and a comforting reminder of the taste of home.”
The promotional menus will be served on select flights departing Hong Kong throughout the year.
