Starting from 01 July 2018, Business Class passengers on selected Singapore Airlines flights between Singapore and Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong can look forward to a new in-flight Chinese dining concept. The new three-course menus, known as Shi Quan Wei Mei (食全味美) are built upon the highly-acclaimed Shi Quan Shi Mei (十全食美) menus that are already available to Suites and First Class passengers on selected flights between Singapore and China.
Created by Zhu Jun, a world-renowned chef on the Airline's International Culinary Panel, Shi Quan Wei Mei uses traditional cooking methods and fresh seasonal produce to present an authentic in-flight Chinese meal experience for Business Class passengers. Passengers who select the Shi Quan Wei Mei menu can expect a side dish like pumpkin with scallion oil or marinated cucumber. For appetisers, customers can enjoy a selection of two Chinese-style cold dishes (e.g. fried marinated seabass and spicy tofu beef salad). Main courses can include pepper braised beef brisket with turnip and carrot as well as braised pork belly in pickle suace. Customers can also look forward to enjoying Chinese desserts like chilled orange scented malva nut soup as well as chilled double-boiled papaya and snow fungus soup.
