Fried Black Cod with Black Bean Ginger Sauce
by Thai Airways – TG 625
-Manila to Bangkok-
Mission to India, Day 1.
In transit, on my way to New Delhi, flying through Bangkok. Attending the 7th Conference of the Parties to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control — the most important tobacco meeting in the world, held every other year, last time in Moscow (see most recently 5.285 Red Mullet Fillets …) — Monday thru Saturday.
First occasion to fly business class on Thai Airways.
(Surprisingly, though I’ve flown Thai Airways multiple times over the past few years, I’ve never posted on an in-flight meal.)
As always, I am grateful for and respectful of the opportunity to travel internationally, whether for fun or for work, especially via business class (see BEST IN FLIGHT), including airport lounge access (see in BEST IN LOUNGE).
The food was disappointing overall. Both main courses, at lunch and at dinner, offering decent ingredients (e.g., whole cod, jumbo prawns), but poorly prepared and sloppily presented. Expected much more from the national carrier of a country renowned both for cuisine and service.
