There's like, four DTF restaurants in the Los Angeles area, but I don't recall ever seeing DTF as an option ex-LAX.

The beef filet was tender, not too raw nor over-cooked.

Fruit, dessert and coffee

Unfortunately, in looking at the menu for the return TSN to TPE, I won't be able to sample the stir-fried scallop with shrimp roes because I will be at the back in economy class.

I just got back from flying RL JFK>TPE>SGN last week. I chose the exclusive meal: wok fried lobster with ginger and green onion sauce. It was very good. I was shocked at how big it was and I apologize for not taking any pictures which I always do. It was half a Canadian lobster and that was more than enough. I was worried it would be a warm water lobster tail; the ones with no claws, as I much prefer cold water lobsters. Canadian lobsters arent as good as Maine but the meat was still very firm and succulent. It came with stirfried noodles which was ok; nothing to brag about.

The refreshing meal or snack was excellent as well. I had the choice between the burger or seafood noodle soup. I've had the burger before (also surprisingly good) so I choose the noodles. It came with 3 large shrimp which must have been 8-12 size. The broth was very good. It hit the spot. The breakfast was ok, nothing to write about so I won't. I should have just asked for another bowl of noodles!

I will be making the return flight in a couple weeks; SGN>TPE>JFK so if anyone has any questions regarding menu or anything else I can definitely try to help

Thanks for posting. I am on JFK->TPE later this month and was just looking at the available choices on their website. I appreciate your feedback on the meals.

You're welcome. Not sure if you can see all the exclusive meals yet on the website so I attached a photo of mine, which should be the same as yours. I had a really hard time deciding between the lobster and rack of lamb, but I decided to switch it up since I always get meat. Coincidentally the gentleman to the left of me had the lamb and loved it.

I should say that the noodles that went with the stir fried lobster were good, not just "ok" like i had previously mentioned in my earlier post. Don't want anyone to think they were bad.

Yes, those are the options I am seeing. Thanks for the effort in posting.

I have had some very good sea bass meals of late, so I was actually going to just stick with the on-board choice of crusted sea bass with corn chowder sauce.

SGN>TPE>JFK

I will be flying RL Taipei > JFK soon and below are my meal options. Usually I know what I want right away but nothing in this lists really makes my mouth water. Has anyone ever had any of the options below and can comment on?

Braised Abalone and Scallop with Ginger and Scallion in Oyster Sauce Served with Mixed Vegetables and Egg Fried Rice


Roasted Herb Peppered Lemon Chicken with Mediterranean Sauce Served with Mixed Vegetables and Sun Dried Tomato with Coriander Couscous


Grilled USDA Prime Beef Fillet with Crystal Salt or Red Wine Sauce Served with Mixed Vegetables and Gratinated Red Skin Potatoes with Bacon


Grilled Prime Beef Fillet Steak with Herb Maderia Sauce Served with Mixed Vegatables and Duchesse Potatos


Rack of Lamb Cutlet Coated with Lime Herb Crust with Rosemary Sauce Served with Mixed Vegetables and Red Skin Potatoes


Pan Fried Duck Breast Served with Grand Marnier Sauce with Orange Zest and Mixed Vegetables,Gratinated Red Skin Potatos


Sauteed Seafood with Cardinal Sauce Served with Mixed Vegetables and Pilaff Rice


Wok Fried Grouper Fish Fillet with Superior Crab Roe Sauce,Served with Mixed Vegetables and Noodles


Roasted Pork Spareribs with Honey Pommery Mustard Sauce,Served with Mixed Vegetables and Mashed Potatos


Braised Pork Tendon and Bailing King Oyster Mushroom in Superior Soy Sauce Served with Mixed Vegetables and Monacolink Rice


Assorted Mushroom with Red Date and Ginkonut in Lotus Leaf Parcel Served with Mixed Vegetables and Steamed Rice with Pearl Barley


Sauteed Seafood with Gremolata Sauce Served with Truffle and Mushroom Risotto and Mixed Vegetables


Healthy Vegetarian Burger Served with Vegetables and French Fries



The first options interests me. I love abalone.... However I have only ever had it sashimi style in Toyko where it was still moving when it was served since it was so fresh. So obviously I'm worried I will be let down. Other than that I may opt for one of the similiar beef dishes.... Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

I've had the Sauteed Seafood with Gremolata sauce + truffle risotto before. I actually really enjoyed it. It was a light dish and perfect size for not getting stuffed before trying to sleep for a while.

The "truffle risotto" is much more akin to a truffle-scented fried rice but it's still nice nonetheless.

Thank you for your input! That actually looked very tempting to me as well as pork spareribs is not something I often see as a meal choice. Glad to know I'll enjoy it if chosen

Thank you! When I fly the opposite route (JFK > Taipei) I always prefer a light meal like you mentioned as my flight always takes off at 1:25 AM. The few first times I filled up so much on steak and bread, that it was very challenging to try and sleep once meal service was done, which can be around 330-4 am.

Thanks for the risotto information. I was actually curious when I saw it online as I wondered how the consistency of proper risotto can be held on a plane. I don't mind if it's more like fried rice at all. I'd rather have good fried rice than bad risotto
