Ever since Philippine Airlines changed management there have been several changes like the newly renovated lounge in the Naia terminal 2, the improved airline food and the change to the Plaza Premium Lounge in Hong Kong.
PAL’s business class passengers used to go to the CNAC VIP Lounge which has very limited food and snacks. I was excited to see the new lounge which was a farther walk than the old one.
This lounge was shared by several airlines but it was big enough to accommodate a lot of people.
Food near the bar consisted of fried samosas and fries.
Cold sandwiches and some desserts were also available here.
I liked these multi-color coconut pudding.
Another dining area was located near the buffet.
The noodle bar was a welcome addition to lounge food.
I skipped the noodles but I couldn’t resist trying some fried rice with chicken.
The food was just okay nothing great but at least there were more choices than at the old lounge.
My mom gave in to her beloved noodle soup.
I didn’t want to eat too much since I always look forward to the food onboard.
Coconut dressing on pomelo salad is awesome!!! I finished every last bit on this bowl.
I love it that PAL almost always serves chicken breast which is my preferred part. It’s risky because it’s very easy to overcook white meat but once again this was perfectly done. The chicken was very tender and the mushroom stuffing gave it a very nice flavor. I wasn’t a big fan of the risotto cake though.
I didn’t expect to find very creamy, very good leche flan on an airplane but this was much better than many I’ve tried on the ground.
Nice touch on the chocolates PAL! Keep up the good work and I’m looking forward to more happy surprises in the future.
