Rack of lamb is not just one of my favorite foods, but is my favorite dish. Singapore Suites (even the “old” product) is one of my favorite ways to fly. With the Singapore Airlines Book the Cook program, you can experience both. This week’s Meal of the Week looks back at one of my best airline meals of all time.
My Uncle Bill and I were flying from Singapore to Melbourne on the A380 in Suites Class..and we had the entire cabin to ourselves. Not only did that mean there FAs for two passengers, but it meant enough food to feed us for works.
But the menu didn’t matter…we had both pre-ordered rack of lamb.
My Uncle introduced me to lamb many years ago in Washington, DC and it has been a perennial favorite ever since.
But this was an airline (albeit Singapore Airlines in first class). How it would taste?
Exquisite. I cannot think of a word to better describe it.
First, the cut was generous. Second, the meat was cooked perfectly medium rare. Third, the lamb was flavorful. Fourth, the chops were not overrun with fat.
Served with a potatoes au gratin and a wonderful side salad of bitter greens, the meal marks one of the best airline meals I’ve ever had.
If you ever fly Singapore Business or First/Suites, take advantage of the Singapore Airlines Book the Cook option to enjoy one of dozens of specially-prepared main courses.
Stay tuned for a full trip report from this trip. It is from 2013, but I’ve never published it before and will be doing so in the weeks ahead.
