Airline reviews Singapore Airlines Inflight food

Singapore Airlines inflight food


Food on Singapore airlines is plentyful and good.

Plastic knives & forks are used on all flights to LHR. Elsewhere they are metal. You can tell how up to date the catering is by the colour of the salt packets. Until recently all Singapore salt packets were red. They are now white, but many locations are still using up red supplies.

Economy inflight meals on Singapore Airlines

In a full economy cabin there can be some long waits before you get served, with the trolleys moving agonisingly slowly down the aisles. You will get a drink service before the main meal, and you should hang onto your plastic glass from this: there is a real glass glass on the meal tray, however it is much smaller, and is only filled once. Accordingly regular fliers ask for the larger plastic glass to be filled, and decant this into the smaller glass. Singapore Airlines Inflight Meals SYD-SIN-Dinner April 2014

Singapore Airlines Inflight Meals SIN SYD Dinner April 2014

SYD-SIN-Dinner April 2007

Chicken & potato lunch

Grilled chicken with mushroom sauce, buttered vegetables and roast potato.

Smokey turkey with caesar salad. A packet of caesar dressing.

A small slab of tub of Beqa "tasty" cheese and two Arnott's crackers biscuits. A roll, and butter. A tub of Summit water on the tray.

This is fantastic: a really good meal served the classic Singapore way (that is, you wait a long time for it, but when it comes it's great). The chicken is nice and tender, without the slightest hint of birdflu, and goes well with the veggies.

The Caesar salad is a disapointment however. The green bits are all fine, and the crutons are great, but the turkey is fowl.
SYD-SIN-Dinner April 2007

Pie floater with Timtam & VB

Lamb and potato curry pie, with a baby tomato.

A single TimTam chocolate biscuit. A can of VB (Victoria Bitter lager).

Strewth mate. When this lot rocks up it looks like an Awesome Feed. The meat pie is fair dinkum, not crook at all. When I first cracked an eye over this I though it was just Ocker grub, but its a beaut with a delicate wooly flavour.

Mind you all the Aussies around me had a winge about the lack of a schooner for the tinny.
SYD-SIN-Dinner April 2007

Grilled beef steak

Grilled beef steak served with roasted vegitables and rosemary flavoured potato.

Marinated scallop appertiser with pasta and vegitable salad, including a lemon and tomato.

Mable cheese cake.

A small slab of tub of Beqa "tasty" cheese and two Jacobs crackers biscuits. A roll, and butter. A tub of SQ water on the tray.

There's no danger of going unfed on a Singapore Airlines flight. This is a full, proper, dinner, and very much worthwhile. The steak is well done, so a little on the tough side, and trying to cut it with the plastic knives is dangerous - the knife shatters, showering you with bits of plastic, hence the rather strange sight of half of the cabin biting mouthfuls of steak off, holding it up on the end of the fork, and then spitting out the bits of plastic from the shattered knife. Still, it had lots of flavour.

The salad is good too: indeed on some airlines this would be all you would get. With all of this lot, I scaresly had room for the cheesecake. It would have been a shame to have left it however, as it had a great, intense, lemony flavour.

LHR-SIN-Dinner April 2004

Beef and rice lunch

Stirfry beef and vegitables (carrots, peppers and baby sweetcorn) in oriental black pepper sauce with steamed rice.

Spiral pasta salad with shrimps.

A small tub of Pave Frais cheese and two Jacobs crackers biscuits. A roll, and butter. A tub of water on the tray.

A great airline meal thanks to Singapore Airlines, and shows how it should be done. The beef is done just right, with plenty of flavour and a delicate pepper aroma. The vegetables are done faily crunchy, and the rice totally un-sticky. Lovely.

The pasta salad with shrimp isn't to my liking, but many people on the flight liked theirs. The cheese and biscuits are a bit disapointing, but there is hardly room for them.
LHR-SIN-Lunch Jan 2004

Pork and rice lunch

Pork in cherry sauce, with rice and vegetables (carrots, peppers and baby sweetcorn)

Prawn salad with one letuce leaf.

A small tub of Pave Frais cheese and two Jacobs crackers biscuits. A roll, and butter. A tub of water on the tray.

This is a great introduction of food on Singapore Airlines. There is the most incredible flavour in the pork, brought out by the cherry flavouring. The vegetables are done just right, with a little bit of crunchyness.

There is a good salad to start off with, and the roll is lovely and light. It would have been nice to have had some better desert than just cheese and biscuits, but there is hardly room for them.
LHR-SIN-Lunch

Chicken and rice lunch

Ricotta cheesecake with a tomato and a slice of cucumber.

Chicken (Wok fried, no less) in black peppercorn sauce, vegetables (carrots, beans, and baby sweetcorn) with rice.

A small tub of cheese and two biscuits. A roll, and butter. A tub of water on the tray.

This is what you'll sit down to on the flight out of LHR. The portions are large, and the chicken tender. Nice selection of vegetables which aren't overcooked.

The Ricotta cheesecake to start off with is the only disappointment. Its just a bit too weird.
LHR-SIN-Lunch Apirl 2003

Chicken and pasta lunch

Ricotta cheesecake with cottage cheese salad.

Chicken (Wok fried) in mushroom sauce with pasta shells.

A small tub of cheese and two biscuits. A roll, and butter. A tub of water on the tray.

The salad to start off with is lovely, a real treat. The cottage cheese has vegitables in it, adding to the flavour.

Nice chicken, but rock hard pasta. It takes a lot to bite through it.
SIN-SYD-Lunch

Chicken in herb lunch

Smoked ham salad with roast vegetables and orzo pasta salad. A small pot of salad dressing.

Chicken (with skin) in herb jus with stewed vegetables and potatoes.

Cheese ("Gonlas Tasty" brand) and two square biscuits. A roll and butter. And a pot of water.

The salad is a real delight, with lots of ham and great flavour in the pasta.

Alas the chicken is really quite poor, and all the flavour of the herbs is soaked up by the skin. Underneath its really not worth it, and comes with some really bad vegetables that have been stewed to death.

Good cheese though.
SIN-SYD-Lunch

Chicken in red wine lunch

Salad with one half tomato and three slices of cucumber. A small pot of dressing for the salad.

Chicken (with skin) in a red wine and herb sauce, vegetables (carrots, beans and cauliflower).

Cheese ("tasty" brand) and two square biscuits. A roll. And a pot of water.

A bit of a disappointment. It looked good, and the metal knife and fork really made it seem better. Alas I was quite disappointed with the rubbery chicken which had seen better days and died in vain. The vegetables were stringy, and even the roll had a huge thumbprint in the middle of it.

Thankfully the salad was good, and the dressing a delight.
SIN-LHR-Lunch (NB This should have contained chicken, but the menu was changed because of bird flu) Jan 2004

Pork in clam sauce lunch

Fa Cai Yu Sheng (Prosperity New Year Salad with salmon).

Pork in clam sauce with deluxe vegitables and three treasure fried rice.

Cheese ("tasty" brand) and two square biscuits. A roll and Anchor butter. And a pot of water.

A specialty for Chinese new year, the salad is a bit weird, with a strong fish taste.

The pork and clam sauce is amazing, a real taste explosion, and one that doesn't last long enough. There are vast heaps of pork here, and the rice itself is equally good.
SIN-SYD-Lunch Jan 2003

Chicken stir fry lunch

Mellon and grape starter.

Chicken stir fry with shittake mushrooms and spinach.

Strawberry yoghurt, and a fairy cake. A roll with Anchor butter and strawberry jam. Orange juice and coffee.

A strange combination of breakfast and lunch for those who can't decide what time it is.

The stir fry is really good, and there is plenty of it. The strange fair cake combination doesn't go all that well with it however.
SIN-LHR-Lunch April 2004

Chicken curry lunch

Smoked lamb with shat-potato salad.

Thai style red curry chicken with spiced vegitables (spinach and carrots) and steamed rice.

A hot roll with Anchor butter. Cheese and biscuits.

This is a really good feed, with lots of flavour - although it was very hot, and quite unusual for airline food in containing more curry than you'd normally get on the ground.

I'm not sure what the follow up salad (or starter, if you are American) was meant to be, but it tasted great, with strong tender lamb and great potato salad.
SYD-SIN-Dinner

Coconut chicken dinner

Salad with three rocket leaves, one slice of cucumber and one baby tomato. A tub of industrial dressing to put over it.

Chicken in coconut-coriander curry sauce with vegetables (mainly carrots although there were a few beans in there) and rice.

Cheese (Cracker Barrel tasty brand) two biscuits (Arnolds round).

A very small roll, and a tub of water.

The curried goo looked disgusting, but was actually great - a really good feed. As on most flights there was plenty of food - a whole mound of rice in fact.

The salad was just right, although I wasn't sure about the industrial "Italian style" dressing, made in a factory in Wagga Wagga.

Nice cheese as well. Definitely one to recommend.
SYD-SIN-Dinner

Goat and pasta dinner

Salad with three giant prawns and two baby tomatos. A tub of industrial dressing to put over it.

Diced goat in brown bean sauce, with asparagus, pasta and cheese.

Cheese (Cracker Barrel tasty brand) two biscuits (Arnolds round). A roll, and a tub of water.

Diced goat sounds terrible, and indeed it is. The pasta has also congealed, so is just not worth looking at.

The salad should be good - unless you don't like prawns, in which case it's time to write off the entire meal.

Nice cheese though.
SIN-BNE Snack Jan 2004

Refreshment (evening, flights less than 8 hours)

Sandwich with egg and turkey.

Eight hours into the flight, late in the evening, and Singapore hand out a sandwich. And that's it.

It's true - you can hear your tummy rumble throughout the plane.
BNE-SIN Snack Jan 2004

Refreshment (evening, flights less than 8 hours)

Crossant with sliced smoked ham, relish spread and lettuce.

Whip chocolate bar.

In the reverse direction, the late evening flight from Brisbane starts off with just a snack, this small crossant. It does however taste very good, with lots of flavour in the ham.

The whip bar (a Singapore speciality) is also very good.
MEL-SIN Snack April 2004

Refreshment (evening, flights less than 8 hours)

Turkish bread with roast chicken tomato and lettuce.

TimTam chocolate bar.

The late evening flight from Melbourne also starts off with just a snack, with Turkish Bread (perhaps reflecting the large Turkish community in Melbourne). It is very good, with lots of flavour, however unless you've stuffed yourself with the meat pies in the SilverKris lounge, there isn't much there.

The TimTam bar (an Australian speciality) is a unique way of ending your time in Oz.
LHR-SIN-Breakfast

Breakfast for flights more than 12 hours

Fruit appetiser (Melon balls and an orange segment).

Cereal (Rumblers, with milk and spoon in the lid).

Omelette with mushrooms, tomato, and potatoes, a roll with butter and marmalade, orange juice, coffee, and Tiger beer.

This is a great end to the midday flight from Heathrow to Singapore.

A real cooked breakfast with some healthy fruit as well. Its very fresh and tasty, and the mushrooms are lovely and tender. The bowl of cereal is a rare treat in economy, and even though its just a cheap UK one, is very welcome after a 12 hour flight.
LHR-SIN-Breakfast Jan 2004

Breakfast for flights more than 12 hours

Fruit appetiser (slices of melon and a grapefruit segment).

Cereal (Rumblers, with milk and spoon in the lid).

Omelette with ham and cheese, beans, mushrooms, and potatoes, a roll with butter and marmalade, orange juice, and coffee.

This is a very good cooked breakfast, and its one of the first I've had with real beans which don't turn into a mass of goo when re-heated. Lots of mushrooms although the omelette was a bit weird. The bowl of cereal is a distinct treat in economy.

Good fruit too, and the roll even came without Singapore's usual trademark thumbprint in it.
LHR-SIN-Breakfast April 2003

Breakfast for flights more than 12 hours

Fruit appetiser (Melon balls and an strawberrys).

Cereal (Rumblers, with milk and spoon in the lid).

Omelette with mushrooms, tomato, and potatoes, a crossant with butter and marmalade, orange juice, and coffee.

The fruit with strawberrys is rare, but very good.

The mushrooms are lovely, but the omelette is woefull - truely poor, with far too many eggs.
SIN-LHR Breakfast Jan 2004

Breakfast for flights more than 12 hours

Fruit appetiser (a slice of melon, a grapefruit segment, and two grapes).

Cereal (Twinners, with milk and spoon in the lid).

Parsley omelette with sauteed mushrooms, chicken sausage and potatoes, a roll with butter and blackberry jam, orange juice, and coffee.

A pretty good breakfast, although the Singapore habit of chicken sausages has made another appearance, and the omelette is dreadful.

Good fruit too, and the Singapore version of Rumblers cereal is a good alternative.
SIN-LHR Breakfast Apirl 2003

Breakfast for flights more than 12 hours

Fruit appetiser (a slice of melon, a grapefruit segment, and two grapes).

Cereal (Twinners, with milk and spoon in the lid).

Parsley flan with sauteed mushrooms, chicken sausage and hash browns, a roll with butter & peach jam, and orange juice.

Lovely, with a chicken sausages that doesn't quite taste of chicken, added to with the wacky flan around it.

Good fruit, and the Singapore Twinners is great.
LHR-SIN Breakfast Apirl 2004

Breakfast for flights more than 12 hours

Fruit appetiser (a slice of melon, a grapefruit segment, and two orange segments).

Cereal (Rumblers, with milk and spoon in the lid).

Ham pancakes with baked beans, three mushrooms, and potatoes, served with thick tomato sauce. A roll with butter & orange marmalade, coffee and orange juice.

A terrible insult to the world of airline catering, this is one of the worst meals I've had on Singapore Airlines. True, the quantity is there, but it had all the flavour of a greasy spoon breakfast, stuck fast to the plate, and only fit to be returned.

Good fruit though, and the standard Singapore Rumblers.
LHR-SIN Breakfast April 2004

Vegitarian Breakfast for flights more than 12 hours

Fruit appetiser (a slice of melon, a grapefruit segment, and three grapes).

Cereal (Rumblers Cornflakes, with milk and spoon in the lid).

Cheese omlette, with peas and baked tomato sauce. A roll with butter & blackcurrant jam, and orange juice.

A truly dreadful meal, created in a land where meat is the staple diet, and veggie food doesn't really get a look in. This omlette has certainly seen better days, and is baked hard, stuck to the dish. It was however, I'm interested to note, made with Vegan cheese. Which means no flavour what so ever. The peas acompanying it are, to say the least, unusual.

The usual fruit, and the standard Singapore Rumblers, which were both good.
SIN-LHR Breakfast April 2007

Asian Breakfast for flights more than 12 hours

Fruit appetiser (a slice of melon, a grapefruit segment, and three grapes).

Cereal (Rumblers Rice Crispies, with milk and spoon in the lid).

Braised egg noodles with beef, mushrooms and leafy greens. A tub of hot pepper dressing.

A hot roll, butter and marmalade.

In the Asian tradition, Singapore has the option of noodles for breakfast. On the ground it may feel a bit weird to be tucking into this lot when you wake up, but after a long sleepless flight in the cheap seats this works - really it does - in the context generally of soaking up the booze from the flight. Keep away from the pepper dressing though - it'll take the top of your head off.

Mind you there is SO much here. I often think it's worthwhile going on a diet before getting on a Singapore flight, as they will offer so much food.

The usual fruit, and the standard Singapore Rumblers, which were both good.
BNE-SIN-Breakfast Jan 2004

Breakfast for 6 to 12 hours (when starts with a snack)

Poached eggs with veal sausage, grilled tomato, spinach and potatoes.

Fruit appetiser (watermellon and 3 grapes), D'lite yoghurt, A hot roll with butter and strawberry jam.

Two fairy cakes.

Orange juice. A cup of coffee.

This is good, and after the starvation rations of the first part of the flight from Brisbane is great. The poached eggs are done really well.

The fruit is tasty and refreshing, but the rolls is very hard, and the fairy cakes? In plural? I don't get it... even BA serve fairy cakes on their planes to Australia, and I can't understand why Singapore follow suit.
MEL-SIN-Breakfast April 2004

Breakfast for 6 to 12 hours (when starts with a snack)

Poached eggs with creamed spinach, mushrooms and potatoes.

Fruit appetiser (grapefruit and one slice of watermellon), D'lite yoghurt(peach), A hot cross bun with butter and peach jam.

One fairy cake.

Orange juice. A cup of coffee.

A special for Easter (Singapore does celebrate the Christian holidays) this looks good on the menu, but is actually pretty woeful. The poached egg is the problem - it was poached, boiled, and hard frozen a long time in the past. It is hard and rubbery - in a word, dreadful.

The good news is that the hot cross bun is a delight - the first time I've had one on a plane. And the fruit is tasty and refreshing. There is also the Singapore Airlines traditional fairy cake.
BNE-SIN-Breakfast Apirl 2003

Breakfast for 6 to 12 hours (when starts with a snack)

Poached eggs with ham squares, peas and tomato.

Fruit appetiser (3 slices of mellon), Pauls yoghurt, A hot roll with butter and strawberry jam.

Two fairy cakes.

Orange juice. A cup of coffee.

This is good, apart from the poached eggs, which really have seen better days. And ham and peas is unusual for breakfast.

The fruit is tasty and refreshing, but two fairy cakes? All flights from Brisbane offer two fairy cakes for breakfast, in a madly consistent way.
SIN-SYD-Breakfast

Continental Breakfast for 6 to 12 hours

Fruit bowl with two grapes and two different types of melon.

A hot roll with butter and peach jam.

A fairy cake.

Orange juice.

A cup of coffee.

Hmmm... this is a grim end to a long flight, and definitely not recommended.

The fruit is tasty, but the rolls are baked hard, and the fairy cake? I fail to understand Singapore's habit of serving them.
SIN-MEL-Breakfast April 2004

Continental Breakfast for 6 to 12 hours

Fruit bowl with six grapes a slice of melon and a slice of pineapple.

A hot roll with butter and blackcurrant jam.

A fairy cake.

Orange juice.

A cup of coffee.

This is a suprisingly poor start to a flight with Singapore, with litle quantity and definately no quantity.

At least on this route the rolls were nice and soft, but the grapes had been stored for a long time and had traces of mould on them. And the fairy cake? At breakfast? Why?
SYD-SIN-Breakfast

Refreshment Breakfast for flights under 12 hours

A turkish bread sandwich with roast chicken and tomato.

Errr... thats it?

That was everyones comment when this came round, 9 hours into the flight from Sydney to Singapore.

People were getting really hungry by this point, and I was amazed that the crew could consider serving a tiny sandwich like this with a straight face.

Sure, it was tasty enough, but where was the delight we were promised?

Pack your own food if you're going to get on a flight where this is served - its just like BA's All Day Deli on internal flight - but this was an intercontinental trip!
SIN-SYD-Icecream

Icecream on flights above 12 hours

Move'n'pick vanilla flavour icecream.

Lovely - a huge tub of the stuff which keeps the boredom away and goes down very well with the inflight films (when the screens work that is).

You'll have to keep an eagle eye out when this one comes round - the trolley wizzes up the isle, and will only stop when someone asks for icecream - and the crew really don't like stopping for anyone.

There is a small spoon in the lid of the icecream, but you're better off saving one of the metal ones from the food round, and using that.

Singapore Airlines Business class inflight meals

There is a separate food and wine list. Read the menu carefully - its not always that clear. There are standard starters with no choice, and then four choices of main course, followed by desert and cheese.
SIN-LHR-Dinner

Lunch starter - Satay Nibbles

Satay chicken, with peanut sauce.

Onion and cucumber "things" on the plate.

Your raffles dining experience starts straight after cocktails (this is a Silver Kris sling in the picture) with three chunks of chicken on sticks.

This is pretty spicey, but good for all that.

I just don't get the onion however - thats a weird one.

As soon as you've finished eating this, move your drinks to the centre console, so the crew can put your table-cloth on. You can tell the regular travellers who know this routine, and the flyers on an upgrade who don't!
SIN-SYD Brunch SQ219 Sept 2009

Lunch starter - Assorted Asian

Assorted Asian appetiser, with Tandoori chicken with cucumber raita, roasted duck with archar and Thai style chicken, and glass noodles. Tomato garnish.

A pretty chunky starter, even though it looks small, this soon fills you up. It's done asian style, which means the Tandoori chicken is pretty hot, while the duck is stewed, however the small Thai chicken is very good indeed.
LHR-SIN-Lunch April 2007

Lunch starter - Crayfish

Marinated crayfish and baby artichokes served with mixed salad and shaved fennel.

Herb vinaigrette.

Served ice cold, this is a decent, but small, starter. Nice and tender, it the dressing is pretty hardcore, and under it its hard to taste the crayfish.
SYD-SIN-Lunch Oct 2003

Lunch starter - Ham salad

Two slices of ham on a bed of flagolet beans, with carrot, sweetcorn and cress. Pot of dressing with lime and honey.

Two chunks of garlic bread.

An alternative starter is this ham salad. Refreshing and tasty, if a little cold - it does after all come straight from the fridge.

Nice garlic bread, oozing with butter.
SIN-LHR-Dinner

Savoury Mesclun chichen starter

Mesulun with roasted chicken, avocardo and salsa balsamico dressing.

Infused with shallot oil and sambal lime and honey.

Garlic Bread.

I thought this was the main course, but no, its just another starter.

Lovely garlic bread - the smell of it wafted around the cabin.

The chicken and salad was great, just dressed up in silly names.
SIN-SYD Brunch SQ219 Sept 2009

Grilled beef lunch

Grilled beef fillet served with grainy mustard sauce, roasted vegetables and mashed potato.

Garlic bread.

What a lovely slab of beef this is, on great mashed potatoes, with some veggies done al dente, so they are quite crispy. There is a lot of flavour in these.
SIN-SYD Brunch SQ219 Sept 2009

Dim sum lunch

Ee fu noodles with roasted pork, pork dumpling, stuffed flower mushroom and har kow.

A wacky one, these are the meals that tend to be left over at the end of the flight: or worse, if you don't get your first choice, you end up with this.

Acutally it's not too bad: it's certainly edible, but the noodles looks rather like something served up by one of those stalls at the side of the road in Singapore. The flower mushrooms are brilliant, served up on a bamboo leaf, with fantastic flavour.
SYD SIN Brunch Jan 2008

Rump Steak lunch

Rump steak, well done, on mashed potato, with spinach and mushrooms.

Garlic bread.

A really good slab of rump steak, but as you'd expect for rump, just a little bit tough.

No matter, the veggies are great, with really good bacon, and some OK mash.
LHR-SIN-Lunch April 2007

Stuffed Chicken lunch

Corn-fed chicken breast with ceps mushroom stuffing, buttered peas, and fingering potato mash.

Two chunks of garlic bread.

This is a Gordon Ramsay special, and one the airline are very keen to promote.

It's lovely, and once you get past the weird names you realise it's basically just a normal chunk of chicken, sliced in two, with a dollop of mush mash bunged in the middle, on top of carrots and peas, on a bed of mashed potato.
SIN-SYD-Lunch April 2007

Sausage Spag bol

Spaghetti pasta with stewed chorizo pork sausages with olives and capsicum in tomato sauce.

This looks great but actually it's dreadful, and should be avoided at all costs.

It unbelieveably spicey. We're talking so hot here you can't taste any flavour, just hot hot hot. And not in a good way. Alas there is nothing on the menu to warn you of this. Nor that the sausages are so stewed you can't cut them with the plastic knife. Avoid.
SIN-LHR-Dinner

Veal and mushroom dinner

Baked veal loin with mushrooms in a blue cheese crust.

Sauteed savoy cabbage.

Fettuccine pasta.

French bread roll.

This is another Gordon Ramsay special.

I can understand why - the veal is lovely, the mushrooms well done, and the cabbage isn't nearly as bad as you'd expect.

Alas the fettuccine is a disaster. Roasted in one lump, it keeps its square shape for ever, and is impossible to cut with the plastic knives and forks.

The roll is even worse. Don't go near the french bread sticks - they are only meant for people with very strong teeth!
SYD-SIN-Lunch Oct 2003

Chicken lunch

Stuffed chicken breast with tomato and olive ragout with potatos.

One roll.

This is a signature dish, created by the Aria Restaurant in Sydney.

Its a total disaster, and one that wouldn't go amis in economy. Absolutely no flavour at all - its like eating cardboard. The only real flavour came from the tomatos.

The rolls are good however, and if you ask the crew, they will exchange your butter for olive oil, in a little bottle.
SIN-SYD Brunch SQ219 Sept 2009

Lunch desert - Peach tart

Peach frangipane with vanilla sauce.

It's getting hard to find a decent desert on Singapore Airlines in business class, but occasionally you get lucky and get a good tart.

The frangipane is very good indeed, and well worth holding out your second tummy for.
SYD SIN Brunch Jan 2008

Lunch desert - Orange cheesecake

A tart of cheesecake, with cream and an orange sliver on top.

This is a rather odd cheesecake: it's made up in a tartlet base, but with normal cheesecake ingredients, and then with cream dumped on top.

All in all, rather weird, and to be avoided.
LHR-SIN-Lunch April 2007

Cheese board lunch

Three types of cheese.

Four grapes. A dried apricot.

Hmmm... this is a bit of an embarasement. It's sold as a board of Gourmet cheeses with garnishes. But, oh woe, its tiny.
SIN-LHR-Dinner

Cheese board dinner

Three types of cheese.

Four grapes.

Two types of biscuits.

This would be fine of there were a few more biscuits.

Other than that it works really well, and the Red Leicester is pretty good to find on a plane, which the french stuff is also nice and tasty.

I was very impressed by the crew who took away my white wine glass, and replaced it with a glass of port, even before I'd noticed. This cheese board is, alas only served on flight to Sydney, not on ones coming from Sydney.
SIN-LHR-Breakfast

Continental Breakfast (more than 12 hours)

This is served at the end of the long flight to LHR.

A fruit bowl with a kiwi, two strawberries, two halves of pineapple, and two grapes. A croissant with butter and a tub of jam.

A Cappuccino coffee!

I'm amazed that its possible to get a good cappuccino on the flight - but it is, and its very definitely Starbucks tastic. Well done Singapore airlines.

Alas the croissant came with a big thumb print in the middle of it (a Singapore habit, I'm told.).

The fruit was good - just right to wake me up.
SYD-SIN-Breakfast Oct 2003

Continental Breakfast (less than 12 hours)

A fruit bowl with a strawberries, on slice of pineapple, four melons, and three grapes.

A croissant with butter and a tub of marmalade.

A Cappuccino coffee, orange juice, and water.

This is served at the start of the shorter flight to SIN from SYD, and differs from the longer flights by the fact that alternatives for the jam aren't offered.

Alas the croissant still came with a big thumb print in the middle of it.
SIN-LHR-Breakfast

Cooked Breakfast

Chicken sausage, omelette with mushrooms and herbs.

Potato waffle. Tomato.

This left me begging to get back to economy.

Far worse than many insults which have been brewed in the name of bad airline food, this was cold, stiff, with no flavour... and a chicken sausage?

What?

I know airlines love chicken... but I ask you! Madness...
SYD-SIN-Breakfast Oct 2003

Cooked Breakfast

Chicken sausage, on a warm salad of mushrooms, peas, potatoes and tomatos.

Fair cake Knob style, with marmalde.

A chicken sausage again. If anything, this just proves Singapore's obsession with chicken.

However the sausages were actually a delight, soft and tender, with a wonderful bed of potatoes. Admittedly after eating this lot I was so full I couldn't eat anything else, but I was happy.

However that fairy cake worries me. I mean, I know Singapore have another obsession with these, however someone needs to warn them about taste.
SIN-SYD-Breakfast April 2007

Asian Breakfast

Chinese style braised udon noodles with roast duck and mushrooms.

A tub of hot green chillies.

A crossant with strawberry jam and butter.

This is a typical Asian breakfast. With the shakeup of your body clock as you fly very long haul, it may feel like dinner time to you - and so this goes down a treat.

The duck is pretty annonymous. However the mushrooms really makes this good. Don't, whatever you, take the chillis. It's hot enough to turn your mouth into a jet engine.
SIN-LHR-Breakfast

Muesli Breakfast

Fresh Bircher muesli, with cream and a strawberry.

A Cappuccino coffee.

This looks revolting, feels horrible, and tastes great.

A lot of people asked for muesli, and were shocked when served this, and yet its great. Really it is, once you get past the slimey feel of it.
SIN-LHR-Snack

On request sandwiches

A pack of three sandwiches.

One cheese, and ham, and one a fairly anonymous type of fish.

A delight of Raffles class is that at any point you can request some more food you want.

On flights above 10 hours there are packets of sandwiches. Fairly disgusting they do at least combat the boredom.
