Cathay Pacific Economy Meal – LAX to MNL

chicken with soya sauce, steamed rice, shiitake mushrooms & spring onions
The food on the flight back to Manila brought back me back to reality and portion control.

After the disastrous and depressing Low Fat/Low Cholesterol Meal (LFML) I ordered on my flight from Manila to San Francisco I stuck with the regular meal option on the return flight.

The food wasn’t bad at all. I loved the shrimp with orzo salad which was very light and refreshing. I ate the chicken with the orzo which was rice shaped pasta. Still carbs but what the heck. And yes, I ate the ice cream. 😀

The chicken, what little there was, was quite palatable. The carrot swede mash was sweet and savory and very interesting.

I skipped dessert since I don’t like red beans.

Throughout the flight there were snacks like mini sandwiches, instant noodles, Pop Pan green onion crackers (yum!), macadamia nut shortbread cookies and Tim Tam cookies.

When I arrived in Hong Kong airport I bought a snack.
