Airline food, the gorgeous only

It was only in the last couple of years that we started taking photos of the airline food that were served to us. Inspired by Nik Loukas and this post on the Daily Mail, we are compiling our own slideshow of gorgeous airline food.

And because we are such nice folks, only beautiful meals will be shared with you. Why? Because we want to make you envious…

Seriously. We all have our share of bad airline food. Do we really need to be reminded? So here’s a sampling of SIA’s culinary offer for those who are humbly privileged to fly business on them regularly:

Lest you think it’s all good, we’ll let you in a little secret. The food you are having onboard are probably saltier, have more pepper added to it and have a lot more aromatic spices than you would normally use when back on earth. We have read several articles on how flying “dumbs down” our sense of taste.

There is the drier air which reduces moisture in your palette while the noise is said to dampen receptiveness to sweet taste. Bitter tastes become accentuated, thus the beer is kinda funny…Hence the need to compensate. Don’t quote us, ask the chef!

Nonetheless, these innovative chefs have designed meals that seem to ‘hit the sweet spot’ as the saying goes.

And sometimes you can get some cute meals too. Such as the one we had while flying premium economy on EVA airlines from Taipei back to Singapore:

Hello Kitty peanuts anyone?
How can Mel ask Suan to use the utentils?

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

  1. Great post! I personally love plane food, maybe because this thing you mention about that flying “dumbs down” our sense of taste. Anyway I really enjoyed the time when the food is served during the flight. When you are ask to choose between “Chicken or Pasta”, I have always wished if I could say: “Both!”
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. You have a knack for making me jealous for sure! Lol! So, should I stop liking you now or later? Kidding! There is definitely a huge difference between business class and economy class. I remember the first time (1 of 2 only) we were in business class, I had thought that the starter was all the food I was going to get. Hahaha!
    Great post! I love the pics! Fine dining up in the air! 🙂

  4. I’ve quite liked the airline food I’ve had so far! But to be fair I get quite travel sick, so I think my pallettes pretty shot in any circumstances! It’s hard to judge taste while flying!

      1. Probably not. I’ve always been prone to motion sickness so it’s probably simply down to that tbh. Have seen a few horror stories about airline water though :/. I try to stick to juice instead.

  5. “humbly priveleged” to fly Business!!! I guess. I have upgraded a couple times to Business, when they offered very reduced fares, and man, Business class is something I could get used to. And the food WAS great. But when I sit back in steerage, I don’t ever eat the food. I bring my own in my bag. Great photos, by the way!!
