Following upon the unveiling of its special flag-bearing A380Â fuselage,Â Singapore Airlines has just launched a special Peranakan menu in honor of Singaporeâ€™s 50th anniversary. Named â€śSingapore Heritage Cuisine,â€ť the menu was devised by Shermay Leeâ€”famous in the city-state for her cooking school, two cookbooks, and branded Shermayâ€™s foodstuffs in addition to collaborating with major global brands including illy and Valrhonaâ€”and is being served on select flights departing from Changi through the end of September. Among the dishes are nasi padang, a spicy mix of meat, fish, and vegetables with rice; Hokkien mee soup with king prawns; and Singapore-style ice cream sandwiches with squares of bandung (condensed milk with rose), gula melaka, pandan, and sweet corn ice cream pressed between two wafers. Passengers in business, first, and Suites classes can order their dishes in advance with the carrierâ€™s Book the Cook service, and special dishes of rojak fruit salad and Nyonya fried Hokkien mee will be served exclusively in the Changi SilverKris lounge.
