This week I am continuing my series of Delta 1st class meal reviews. This one I often choose even though it is a cold choice vs the often other hot choice. Here is why:
It’s fresh, crisp and filling. Delta does salad really well, I have to say. In this one you get snap peas, quality lettuce, chives as well as potatoes (with skin) and eggs and clearly Turkey that was quite nice and of ample if not abundant quantity.
This meal is not served with bread but rather with La Panzanella multigrain bread sticks. This also really works and adds a nice crisp crunch to a meal that has very little crunch. You can see thought has gone into the little details with this meal choice. Impressive.
If I were to be nit picky I would say the only thing is the flavors, at altitude, are a little on the bland-ish side but then again that is why they provide salt and pepper on the tray! 😉
The tomato soup choice I understand as a pairing to have a contrasting flavor profile to enhance the salad but I am just not a fan of this Delta soup. It is just weird in some way. Maybe you are a bigger fan of it than I am.
Delta tends to rotate what cookie they provide from Dancing Deer and I like just about all of them from the double chocolate to the this offering the toffee almond one. Again I am just impressed by the quality and thought process of this desert choice.
Overall if you select this option I think you will be pleased. My only real critique is that I still hate the faux wooden trays Delta uses system wide. They are often dirty feeling and just look so “trailer park” to me. I know, really nothing to complain about when the meal is this good! – René
