Does Singapore Airlines (SIA) serves Korean Food?





I am curious as to whether SIA serves Korean food on its Seoul flights. During my time with SIA, I do not think we ever serve Korean food. However, Japanese food was served on the Japan bound flights and it still is. Just curious about the Korean food because I had the Korean food of beef and pork for lunch today at a newly opened stall near my house (above pictures).
It's really a waste to have this new food stall near my place serving mediocre standard Korean food.
I am disappointed really. But then how could the food be good when the cook and workers were China nationals?
This same stall was serving Thai food before that. It folded up just after 9 months in the business.
The same goes for a kway chup stall nearby. The cook and his wife were Chinese nationals.


But the kway chup in the picture above was delicious. Why? Because the cook was a Singaporean Teochew lady. I once told her I will be sad if she decides to retire one of these days.

After my return from Japan, I've lost my appetite for the food in Singapore. Needless to say, in Japan even the Chinese and Western food cooked by the Japanese chefs tasted better than the ones in Singapore. Even the convenient stalls like Lawson and Family Mart in Japan serves better standard of sandwiches, oden, cakes, snacks etc than anywhere else.

Stocked their food every 3 hours? That is incredible. Must be selling fast I think not like our 7-11 selling expired foodstuff at times.

Singapore needs to take a serious look at the types of food that are being manned in hawker stalls that offer local dishes. In its drive to bring in foreigners to our soil, such licenses have been awarded to the kinds of people that BT has described. One word describes it tall....HORRIBLE! Hawker licences should only be given out to our citizens who are skilled in local dishes or hawker food. Look at Gurney Drive..the gourmet capital of Penang.

BT: Fully agree with u. Malaysia does not allow foreigners who are unskilled in cooking local dishes to be hawkers or cooks in restaurants.
