After stuffing myself on the first leg of SQ15 from San Francisco to Seoul, it was time for another feast on the connection to Singapore.
Thankfully, I had taken some time in Seoul to walk up and down the terminal and burn calories…I also ate nothing in the lounge. When it comes to Singapore Airlines First Class, it is either feast or famine. Oh, you’ll never starve, but depart anytime during the day and you’re in for more food than you can possibly eat.
Depart late at night, however, and you might just find yourself hungry. These “supper” flights offer limited food service. That’s why you should always take advantage of the Book the Cook option. For better or for worse (considering I was still stuffed), I was on a dinner flight with immense amounts of food onboard.
Seoul (ICN) – Singapore (SIN)
Wednesday, May 29
Seat: 1C (First Class)
Every first class seat was occupied on this flight to Seoul, but service shined. As we walked down the jet bridge, the purser greeted my uncle and me by name and welcomed us onboard.
Pre-departure beverages were offered and I opted for a glass of sparkling water, followed by Krug after takeoff. Each drink came with a cold towel.
I had pre-selected lamb chops as my main course, but just after takeoff a FA set down a beautiful plate of beef satay on my tray table. The meal before the meal…
The satay was exceptional, with the peanut sauce serving as a perfect accompaniment.
The table was set of diner.
Soup? Why not…Singapore offers excellent tomato soup with a dollop of sour cream and chives. It was truly delicious.
Singapore also tempts you with some of the best bread, butter, and olive oil in the sky. I mixed balsamic vinegar with olive oil to create a perfect dip for my bread.
Although I was stuffed, it was time for a salad…I considered it a palate cleanser. Thankfully it was just a small wedge salad with a bit of light dressing.
The main course finally arrived. While I think carrots and peas make any dish look so cafeteria-like, the lamb was succulent and brimming with flavor.
FAs tried to push a number of elaborate dessert items and cheese on me, but I just had a kiwi and grapes.
Meanwhile, my uncle ate nothing the entire flight: he was still stuffed as well and wisely just said no to more food. The food in Singapore Airlines First Class is truly exceptional. I was happy to fall asleep after dinner and enjoy a four hour nap before arriving in Singapore.
