Following a $600+ upgrade to Business Class, an 11.5-hour flight from SFO to NRT and some filet mignon, we were excited for a little more local fare on the 6 hour and 30 minute flight. And we got it. Kinda. If Trader Vic’s-recipe dishes can be considered thusly.
A starter of “seasonal mixed greens” was fine, but the entree choices did sound better than anything we could have self-packed:
· Trader Vic’s Braised Australian Short Ribs with Barbecue Plum Sauce
· Trader Vic’s Sesame Pink Peppercorn Salmon with Lime Leaf Beurre Blanc **our choice
· Pork Kakuni with Hanagata Rice
This is the set menu for the season on the United NRT-BKK route, so if you’re flying it anytime soon, plan to have only one dessert option: Eli’s Passionfruit Cheesecake.
