For the main course, we took advantage of Book the Cook from Singapore Airlines website to pre-order our main course. For me, I ordered Pan Fried Barramundi in native pepper berry sauce, with sautéed vegetables and saffron fettuccine pasta, and for my husband, Peter, he ordered Braised Short Rib with Celeriac Pear Puree. The reason behind it was because we wanted to try having something that sounds unique and thought it would taste great too. Also, since we departed from Australia, we tried to find the ingredients that are local from Australia and we know Australia has a good produce of them. For example, something called 'native pepper berry', it sounds that they use native produce from Australia. Another example is choosing beef, we know Australia has an excellent beef produce, so we could expect a high quality of beef.
Another tip is also to order that only your departure country/city offers but the others don't. For example, the popular Lobster Termidore (a lot of Singapore Airlines passengers choose this 'book the cook' menu) is not available from Brisbane to Singapore, however, it is available from Singapore to anywhere in the world. So, it is wise to choose the lobster if you depart from Singapore. Stay tuned for a review of the legendary Lobster Thermidor in our upcoming blog post.
