Vegetarian Hindu Meal


by Korean Air

on Flight KE 621

-Somewhere over the Pacific Ocean-


TEKASM (Try Every Korean Air Special Meal).  Flying often as I do on Korean Air, I’ve grown weary of the standard food offerings, certainly the bibimbap (see most recently 7.025 Bibimbap), even the meals on business class (see most recently 7.039 Sauteed Cod Fillet).  Recently, I discovered that Korean Air offers a range of “special meals” available upon advance order.  I’ll attempt to try every one, 20 in all.  Though anticipating that the food won’t be all that special, it’ll be about the exploration, better to be surprisingly blah than predictably meh.

The Vegetarian Hindu Meal was okay.  Two types of cake — no idea what they’re called — both bean-based, both kinda crumbly.  Plus chickpeas in curry.  Would make for a decent accompaniment with beer.

2 down, 18 to go.  So far, not so bad.
