This is an extremely anti-carnivore menu, I have to say - 3 vegetable and 1 seafood starter choices, then only 1 main course with red meat (which is, unfortunately, a steak which totally rules it out in my opinion) and one with a little bit of pork in some wontons...

I have had a BA F wonton soup out of HKG before and it was fine, edible but nothing better and somewhat lacking in flavour for a wonton soup made in Hong Kong. Can't comment on the ex-LHR version.

LHR-SIN August CW menu. I know it is late but may still help. This is the menu which wasn't available in advance of my flight.

Hmm... that's really weird because it is completely different from the LHR-SIN CW menu I had twice this month! Can you confirm what were your travel dates, as I almost wonder if it was a delayed or early start to the monthly rotation?

The vast majority of menu dishes get recycled every few months. Occasionally, one disappears or another reappears or one gets changed for whatever reason, but the beef fillet with smoked mashed potatoes has been a regular. I tried it once despite my natural worry towards steak on planes because the alternatives I had did not tempt and I loved smoked things generally, but it was really poor, with the cabbage proving an unwelcome watery base to everything else. I find BA risotti invariably overcooked which makes them feel stodgy though I tasted this one and the taste itself was fine. I'd personally choose the pork rib as Chinese mains are usually decent (I believe that they are prepared by a separate caterer).

Slightly the wrong thread but it’s pointless me starting a new one.

Can someone advise what the meal service in club will be on the BA117?

The service is from the trolley like the lunch/dinner service so plenty of choice and excellent quality food.
