Claypot rice is back!

While the taste has never been great, I always used to enjoy the claypot rice they served as a snack in F on longhaul routes.. Was pretty sad when they got rid it that option a few years ago due to cost cutting.. So was happy to see it come back up again on the menu today as one of the choices for the chinese course... Taste was similar to before, not that special and I would say you can get a similar quality from MX in HK.. But still nice to have back on the menu..

Wow the Chinese choices are quite....Chinese. Century egg and duck liver sausage....it would be bad for someone with less Chinese tastes to be “forced” to take this option if the other choices were not available.

HURRAY!!! , how long have we lost Claypot Rice?
Like 6-7 years?

Wonder how many they will cater onboard now, they used to only cater 1 or 2 before they gutted it previously.
