Delta brags about it’s food and they should. After all, if you look at most of the meal reviews I have posted this year, I liked them and would order them again. But not just me, Business Insider had a nice piece recently on Delta steaks. I agree, they are most times very good and the same thing goes for this choice, the Delta burrito. Take a look what we have
- Two chicken burritos with Spanish rice
- Topped off with two types of cheese plus chives, olives and tomatoes
- Salsa and sour cream included
- A small side salad
- Apple pie for desert including two kinds of cheese & grapes
When you think about it this main course is just about the perfect make in advance and re-heat meal for Delta and I liked it. It is fun to take a plain old chicken you have seen 100x on just about any airline flight and make it something special.
Even the rice, tomatoes, olives and chives are nice little touches that did not have to be there but including them added just that one more bit to take it up a notch and add richness at altitude when our taste buds are not working as well as on the ground.
When it comes to the only thing that I could think of to make it perfect would be a tiny packet of sriracha hot sauce to add some heat. Again, not a must but would have been fun.
The Delta side salads are just about always crisp and nice. It truly is impressive and of the many times I have enjoyed them this year can only maybe think of one time they were not presented in a fresh manner.
When it comes to dessert I am always impressed what they can pull off. The apple pie is just nice Now sure, it would be even more nice with ice cream or some kind of a vanilla sauce or maybe some whipped cream but for in the air it was just fine.
Same goes for including the savory two kinds of cheese with grapes. Want sweet or savory after your meal – Delta gives you both if you want. Either works well with a glass of red wine or a Woodford Reserve to finish your meal.
Again, this meal was not on a transcon or international flight – just a normal domestic flight where dinner was offered. Impressive and just one more bullet point of how good a meal can taste and be well presented at 500 MPH! – René
