Dragonair unveils new menu for premium passengers

3 Nov 2014

Dragonair has created new menus for first and business class passengers departing from Hong Kong to Beijing and Shanghai.

The new menus in first class feature quality, tasty ingredients with high nutritional value such as crab roe. Other healthy ingredients include soya bean milk and red dates, the latter of which is often used in Chinese cuisine and is rich in vitamin A, B and C, protein and minerals.

New dishes in business class include a hot pot rice menu, with a combination of ingredients including seafood such as lobster and farmed giant garoupa. This choice will also be available to first class passengers starting from December 16.

Three new signature cocktails are also being served onboard now, including – Rose Infinity, a blend of rum, apple and grapefruit juice with a sparkling rose infusion; Passion Tour, a thirst-quenching combination of gin, passion fruit, apple juice and sparkling water with refreshing lemongrass; and Summer Breeze, a bubbly mix of rum, piña colada syrup, passion fruit and orange juice with a touch of fresh lemon. The current Dragonair Sunrise cocktail will also be served for premium passengers.

“We strive to offer a high-quality and enjoyable inflight dining experience to our passengers every time they travel with us, and our catering team is always on the lookout for innovative new ideas,” said Brian Yuen, the general manager of inflight services of the airline. “Taking into account the fact that many passengers are looking for a more healthy dinning experience nowadays, we have put a lot of effort into balancing a healthier approach with the need to provide passengers with delicious tasting dishes. We are sure passengers will appreciate these latest additions to our food and beverage menus.”
