"Fish with Spaghetti" on SilkAir
That was interesting. The flight attendants were telling the passengers that the selections tonight were "fish with spaghetti" or "chicken with fried rice." The word "spaghetti" instantly conjured up images of a red tomato-based sauce in my head, which didn't quite resonate with me, seeing as it sounded like they paired it with some fish. So I nearly opted for the chicken instead until the flight attendant suddenly changed her description when she reached our row to "fish with linguine in a cream sauce." Whoa. That changed my selection immediately.
It turned out to be the right choice. This wasn't too bad, with a decently creamy sauce and fish that didn't reek of anything too aged. In contrast, I also got to try some of the chicken, whose dark spicy kung pao-like sauce was enjoyable, but the chicken cubes themselves had a bit of a not-that-fresh aftertaste. I don't know why she suddenly changed the description of the dish when she reached us (especially since this clearly was a different noodle type altogether), but I'm glad that she did.
