Philippine Airlines Food Mnl-Hkg-Mnl December 2011

Philippine Airlines Meals - creamy mushroom omelette
I have a long backlog of posts with trips to Tagaytay, Cebu, Taipei, Hong Kong and Boracay. I decided to tackle them in order even though it’s delayed.  This starts a series on my trip to Hong Kong last December 2011.

I like that PAL offers local breads during their flights. It’s a nice introduction to foreigners. I managed to resist the ensaymada only because it looked different from the AWESOME ensaymada I had on a previous flight.

The menu said Brie and Edam but I got both Brie which I didn’t mind since it was good with the dried fruits specially the yummy dried mangoes which seemed homemade since it wasn’t as sweet as the commercial ones. It was also very thick and quite moist.

For breakfast I always choose the tried and tested bangus with adobo butter but I wanted to something different so I ordered the mushroom omelette even though I don’t like eggs. It was indeed soft and creamy but I wish there were more mushrooms inside.

The chicken burger was a bit firm but it was very flavorful. All in all a pretty healthy meal.

I found the seller of these delicious dried mango dipped in dark Belgian chocolate when I was in Cebu. Each piece cost P20 and I didn’t buy any since I knew I couldn’t stop at eating one piece.

I read somewhere that ordering fish in an airplane is not a good idea but in Philippine Airlines I never get disappointed with their fish entrées.

I couldn’t believe the generous wedge of cheese and thick slices of ham for starters. It made the perfect sandwich with the whole grain roll from the bread basket. I wrapped up the sandwich and took it home with me. Hee hee… It was a yummy afternoon snack.

The fish was perfectly cooked and flaky. I tried not to eat the creamy fattening sauce but it kept getting in the way. How can I resist the delicious but light coconut flavor? I didn’t taste the mango though.

Wow!! The almond pudding tasted just like panna cotta. It was to die for!!!

As usual the food was excellent. I love PAL’s food.
