Passenger finds foodie happiness on Alaska Airlines

Seattle man raves about meal on flight to Maui

Patti Pietschmann reports

We picked up a very contented friend at Maui's Kahului Airport last night, He flew in on Alaska Airlines to join us here for a few days looking well-fed and happy.  Not only did Bob enjoy scintillating conversation across the ocean with a First Class seat mate,  he loved his meal. "It was delicious."

After a gin on the rocks and roasted nuts came an appetizer of watermelon arugula salad with Feta crumbles and shave coconut. For his entree Bob opted for the honey glazed pork tenderloin medallions topped with mango salsa and served with what he described as wonderful garlic-laced bok choy and mashed ginger sweet potatoes. He washed it down with Chateau Ste, Michelle Mimi Chardonnay.

No one in their right mind would skip a dessert of dark chocolate mousse layered with caramel sauce, graham cracker crumbles, meringue and toasted macadamia nuts and our boy Bob didn't. For digestion and further relaxation he ended the meal with coffee laced with Harvey's Bristol Cream.

Wish our First Class meal on Delta was that good, it wasn't bad just nothing to rave about. Maybe it will be on the flight back to Los Angeles.
