Fine Dining in the Skies with Singapore Airlines

Ever thought or dream of a ‘Fine Dining’ Experience on a flight? Well it’s possible for a long haul premium flights. Even more so, from the continuation of my review on the New Singapore Airlines Business Class experience, I would like to share the overwhelming experience of fine dining in the skies with Singapore Airlines. 

A menu was provided to each passenger about the extensive dining choices on board.

The other option is to reserve your main course up to 24 hours before your departure including creations by notable chefs from not just one but eight world-renowned chefs from the Singapore Airlines International Culinary Panel. They are Alfred Portale (New York), Carlo Cracco (Milan), Georges Blanc (Vonnas), Matthew Moran (Sydney), Sanjeev Kapoor (Mumbai), Suzanne Goin (Los Angeles), Yoshihiro Murata (Kyoto) and Zhu Jun (Shanghai).

Unique blend of coffee are also served such as the espresso and decaf espresso. Specialty coffee such as cappucino, latte or mocha can also be ordered.

Wines and Champage

I am not an alcohol drinker but, the business class offers huge range of high quality wine and champagne. Those wines were carefully selected under the supervision of their wine experts panels. The wine and champagne served on board the Singapore Airlines Business Class are:

My Review:

The fine dining experience was impressive. High quality ceramic cups, bowls, plates and stainless steel cutlery were used to serve the passenger. The most unexpected experience was the serving of the noodle. I was expecting a cup noodle to be served however, the noodle were prepared and served in a ceramic bowl. Apart from that, I was a little sceptical about the inflight nasi lemak. It turned out that, the nasi lemak was the most awesome nasi lemak on a flight. The cabin crew were also awesome in providing a great fine dining experience.
