They always have my favorite bircher muesli for breakfast. I wish they would skip the mango puree on top because it made the muesli too sweet. No dried figs this time. Just fresh mangoes and sliced almonds.
This was the first time I encountered ensaymada in their bread basket. Usually they offered an assortment of croissants, muffins and danish pastries which I always skipped. I was curious to how the ensaymada tasted. Oh my, it was wonderful! It wasn’t as soft nor was it too firm. The texture was perfectly in between. The cheese wasn’t salty or soft and there wasn’t a lot of butter or sugar but somehow I loved it! I asked the flight attendant who supplied it, she said the local airline caterer did. Yum!!!
Since there was nothing else I liked and I wasn’t that hungry I took a chance and ordered the grilled sea bass. It was amazingly cooked just right. It was still succulent and juicy. Quite a feat for airline food. The sauce was a coconut based mild Thai curry which was so fragrant and delicious but there wasn’t enough. I wanted more sauce! The rice was just ok. I didn’t really taste any crab.
