What’s The Best In-Flight Meal You Ever Had?

The flight from JB to KL was so short that I didn’t really have time to play Tokyo Beat Down, but I did spend some time to savour Air Asia’s Nasi Lemak meal.  I have flown with three airlines, with long-haul flights on MAS and Emirates, and I must say, Air Asia’s Nasi Lemak is the best in-flight meal I’ve ever had, trumping even the offerings from the two big airlines.

The nasi lemak, to begin with, was done right. The coconut-milk infused rice had excellent condiments: rendang chicken, sambal (not too hot, and not too sweet) and fried peanuts and anchovies to go with it. It’s a meal that works real well and doesn’t taste like the bland food in-flight meals are normally associated with. In fact, Datuk Tony Fernandes should set up a stall selling that nasi lemak on the ground. Good stuff this.

What about you then, what’s the best in-flight meal you ever had? And I’m not referring to your membership to the mile high club :).

    I thought the nasik goreng is better? Because I think I remember someone said that the nasik lemak was like a jumbled mash up of various items. 😀

    No way man. The nasi lemak was really good, and it didn’t look like a mess. But that said, the guy sitting on the next seat had spaghetti meatballs, now that looked really good too.
