In the past, in-flight meals were not generally
something that passengers looked forward to. However, all
that has started to change, as many airlines are striving
to bring great food onto their aircraft in order to provide
passengers with a satisfactory dining experience, especially
during long-distance flights.
China Airlines (CAL) has worked hard at improving
their cabin services, as well as renewing their equipment
and facilities. In addition, they have been creative with
their in-flight meals, introducing different types of food
according to the flight routes, times and seasons. They even
provide an online meal ordering service to satisfy customers'
needs. China Pacific Catering Services has been working with
Shin Yeh Company to introduce Taiwanese cuisine on CAL flights.
There is also cooperation with the Council of Agriculture
to provide "mango meals" on Tokyo flights. CAL continues
to create new in-flight meals and their most recent introduction
is Hakka cuisine, available until the end of the year. Passengers
flying across the Pacific on flights originating from Taipei
have a chance to taste traditional Hakka cuisine, including
dishes prepared from ingredients such as dried plums, fermented
bean paste, cod and lotus seeds. Hakka-style mochi glutionous
rice cakes are wrapped around fried pickled vegetables for
an interesting combination of sweet and salty flavors. Try
it with some Grass Jelly and Tofu Pudding for a full reflection
of Hakka cuisine's tastiness and non-greasiness. With every
change of menu, CAL showcases yet more of Taiwan's rich cuisine
to the world
