SQ's Iranian Chicken and Lamb Kofta Kebabs
Hey this was a lot better than I thought it would be. The "Iranian chicken and lamb kofta kebabs with sweet and sour Barberry rice" platter is available via the Book the Cook program - but I think only out of Dubai, so I made sure to order this. It didn't look like much when it first came out with that sauce drizzled on it, but then later I realized that - hey - that ground kofta kebab meat is like my favorite kubideh! Granted, it wasn't Shamshiri or Shabestan (and no, the little onions and tomatoes were not grilled on a fire), but for airplane food, this was impressive. The chicken wasn't too dry either, and the rice wasn't too fruity or anything - and of course it was nice to add some butter to it. It's too bad this isn't available on all SQ flights.
The starter tonight was "gravadlax with gherkin and new potatoes," which was decently fresh too, and a refreshing starter to have after all these kebabs lately.
