Mouth-watering,delicious steaks and snails



In my opinion, one of the best foods served on SIA flights was the Ribeye beef steak from USA. It was served in the first class section. I was told by our master chef that 1 kg of the Ribeye cost about US$600. As usual, it wasn't a popular main dish with most of the passengers as they considered the Ribeye too "fatty". For the crew, the Ribeye was a "gift" from our first class passenger. I. particularly love the Ribeye and the first class crew never failed to reserve a portion for me. I loved the Ribeye for its intramuscular fats which often refer to as marbling. The steak is tender and if eaten medium rare, you can taste the rich flavor of the marbling.

The other delicious steak served in the first class was the Kobe steak. It was on the menu briefly and was removed because it was too expensive back then.

I still remember Escargots being served as hors d'oeurvres or appetizer in the first class for a short period of time. It wasn't popular with the passengers. On one of my flights, not a single piece of escargot was taken by the passenger or the crew. Most considered eating snails as revolting. I gladly had the whole tray to myself. It was lovely and I can never forget the pleasant delicate chewy texture of the snails.

Those memories (of the Ribeye and escargots) still exist in my mind and sometimes in my dreams.

Many thanks to Singapore Airlines for the memories!
