As we're in Mexico, you might expect a blog about the local food, and indeed our hotel does serve a delicious mixture of Mexican / Italian / American food. So we've had tortillas, pasta and even a few French fries over the first couple of days (though not all on the same plate - they don't go in for fusion cooking here). And it has all been delicious.
Once we boarded the flight, we were offered another glass of champagne before take-off (accepted), another glass of champagne after take-off before lunch (accepted), and then finally we got into the food. I don't have the patience to type out the menu (I'm writing this on the iPad, and honestly Google it's impossible to blog on the iPad! Please sort something out), so I've included a photo of the menu at the bottom. Hopefully you can read through that.
In summary, the salmon starter was delicious, the fillet steak was grossly overcooked (see photo of grey meat) but the meat was good quality and the sauce was tasty, and the ice cream was surprising (given it wasn't on the menu). Afternoon tea at the end of the flight was a delight, with yummy sandwiches, warm fruit scones, proper clotted cream and jam. The only disappointment was a salted caramel choux bun that failed to impress us with its lack of flavour.
Ok, none of the food was cooked to restaurant quality (I'm looking at you, fillet steak). But served at 35,000 feet in our comfortable seats on the way to a tropical holiday - we were happy enough!
