There was a time when I wanted to write a review on quite a few meals served by Scoot, a low-cost subsidiary airline of Singapore Airlines. Unfortunately, I'd forgotten my intention all along until Scoot revamped its menu, which has rendered some of the things I tried obsolete. Well, for our outbound flight to HK, I ordered the Premium Selection meal, while my BFF ordered something from a variety of hot meals.
TZ Meal #1 S$21.99
Plain Salad - Taste: 6/10
The vegetables, along with a cherry tomato, were served sans dressing. Well, at least they weren't stale.
Hong Kong Style Noodles with Prawn - Taste: 6/10
I was pretty much disappointed with the most expensive meal served on the SIN-HKG-SIN sector. While the taste wasn't that bad, thanks to the oyster sauce used to stir-fry the egg noodles, some of the strands were dry. Not only that, the prawns weren't succulent either.
Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Ice Cream
The saving grace for the flight was the ice-cold, creamy chocolate ice cream for dessert. I wonder if they brought any other flavours onboard?
TZ Meal #2 S$17.00
Beef Bourguignon Pasta Stew - Taste: 7/10
One of the Western meals featured screwdriver-shaped pasta, beef, potatoes and carrots braised in beef stock. The gravy could be slightly thicker, but I enjoyed the tender beef chunks. Yes, it was better than the premium meal above.
Scoot has always served Pringles which are made in the States. No offense, but I don't like the original flavour made in Thailand.
A can of Coca-Cola was given by default. Pika's advice: In the menu booklet, it says "meals come with a Coke / Heaven & Earth Green Tea". Ask for the latter if you prefer that.
Ambience: 7/10Service: 6/10
I know I've only tried two items from the newly revamped menu, but honestly speaking, I feel that the previous meals were better. Perhaps I shall compile the pictures of the latter and post them on my blog one day.
