Always keen on ridding inflight meals of their dubious reputation, Dragonair has announced it will offer a new “Asian Delights” menu in business class on Beijing and Shanghai flights, with signature dishes covering nine destinations in the region.
These premium passengers will have the chance to sample signature regional dishes from a pool of 80 choices that reflect the cuisines of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, India and the Philippines. According to a spokesperson from Dragonair, the "technical constraints" of infight meals, such as "having to reheat food" were all taken into account when selecting these dishes. The resultant menu includes such dishes as Singaporean Hainan chicken rice, Thai tom yam chicken, Japanese teriyaki chicken, Indian lamb masala and tri-colour biryani rice and even pork afritada - a name that will make Filipino passengers feel right at home.
The dishes will be available from now until mid-April 2013.
The airline has also announced its collaboration with Uwe Opocensky, executive chef of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, to bring gourmet Western dishes to the first and business class cabins on its flights from Hong Kong to Beijing and Shanghai.
