Cathay Pacific understands that inflight dining is an important part of the travel experience – no matter what class you’re travelling.The airline regularly works with world class restaurants to develop special menus, collaborating with establishments such as Tosca, the fine-dining Italian restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong; T’ang Court, the Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant at The Langham; and Michelin-starred The French Window and The Whisk.
Cathay Pacific Business Class entrée
Cathay Pacific Business Class meals created in collaboration with Tosca at The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong.
The lunch menu on my Business Class flight from Sydney to Hong Kong included a choice of two entrées; and a selection of four main courses ranging from Asian-style chicken with steamed rice and vegetables; to a Western-style beef fillet dish with Café de Paris butter, roasted potatoes and asparagus; and a seafood tagine with mint and couscous. I chose the vegetarian option: spinach and ricotta pasta with mushroom cream sauce. And I must admit, I couldn’t resist sampling the triple chocolate mousse cake and cheese selection from the trolley.
After that feast, I was very happy to be able to lie back in Cathay’s new Business Class Flat Bed, stretch out my full belly, and flick through the hundred or so movies on the entertainment system that has won the airline awards.
The dim sum served on flights from Hong Kong rivals any yum cha restaurant on the ground.
If you’re feeling peckish during the night, you can order snacks such as noodles, cookies or fresh fruit. Soups and sandwiches are also served in Business Class; and on my flight, delicious Maggie Beer ice-cream. The dim sum breakfast served on flights from Hong Kong rivals any yum cha restaurant on the ground.
