The Low Sodium Meal on SQ
Whoa - that was a lot better than I thought it would be. Coming off of that horrible Oriental Vegetarian meal on the way up, I figured that the special Low Sodium meal that I requested on the way back was also going to be unappetizing. But I actually kinda liked this thing.
It may have been low on salt, but it wasn't nearly as bland as I thought it might be. The natural taste of the fish went nicely with the rich potatoes and rice, while the crudités and cut fruit would be my preference over the salad and cake that are usually provided in these trays anyway. The low air pressure in airplanes is supposed to hamper our sense of taste too, right? That made this all the more impressive.
Perhaps more interesting was the fact that this came from CX's catering department, which I've had many a forgettable meal from before. If Low Sodium meals out of Singapore are similar, then I may have found my new thing on airlines...all while staying on the healthy side of the fence in the process.
