First visit to the CCR last week - having been uninspired by the menus on here, we actually enjoyed it all - the duck and the tortellini were both good - as were the espresso martinis!

For future reference, what time does the breakfast menu switch to the rest-of-the-day menu?

New cheeseboard, which after the long daytime flight from Durban is as much as I can manage.

Sorry I don't understand why Traditional Macroni Cheese is on the menu apart from being a very cheap dish that can fill you up.
I know it is comfort food but it's a dish that I would expect to be served on an economy flight not in a premium lounge.

There is often a pasta dish. They are often popular as not everybody wants heavy/rich food before a flight. Besides the portions tend to be small so you can always have more than one.

Thanks. Photos for macaroni cheese and turkey roll now added too. Still need photos of the salmon starter, plaice fillet, and the chocolate sponge pudding please if anyone would like to post them.

I see your point. Watery macaroni cheese should have no place on the CCR menu. I recall having a pasta in cheese sauce with black truffle shavings in the CCR in winter several years ago. It was deliciously decadent. The portion was very large and I admitted defeat after a third of it. Elevating a simple dish would be more in keeping with expectations.

It was Mac and Cheese! That version was much nicer than the current version, rather rich and moorish. Of course its presence was criticised by a few here, but it was very popular first time around.

I wouldn't call the Mac&cheese particularly "light"!!! It's actually a lot heavier/richer than the steamed place (which you can have on its own if you ask).

I love a good Mac&cheese. My problem with the CCR one is that they do not have the ovens to make its topping crisp and golden so it's a bit soggy and precisely feels heavier than when it is properly "gratine" (even if it is admittedly a pure illusion the calories don't actually go away when the cheese and crumb topping hardens )

I agree the first version was nicer. The AF P lounge one by Ducasse (though actually not grilled) is to die for, made with special cured ham, comte and extravagant amounts of fresh shaved black truffle. Highly recommended.

I am another one that did not like the macaroni - watery, pretty tasteless and I really didn’t like the mustard powder on top!

Next stop the parfait ��

Edit: the parfait was delicious!

I had seen the dish on the CCR menu a few times before trying it. Couldn't remember the the menu description though. Thanks. The black truffle shavings lifted it nicely.

New menu courtesy of PleasureFlyer. If anyone can post the new lounge menu as well that would be great. Also no photos of the new dishes yet, any photos very much appreciated.

Ah, I was missing those cheap pulled meat mains... not. New starter sounds pretty bad too.

Not normally a big eater of goats cheese but I quite liked the starter. The pulled beef was ok. However, the pudding was excellent (and even better with a scoop of ice cream).

I did send Karfa pictures of all three on Monday but he appears to have overlooked them. or he doesn’t think much of my photograph skills.
