I suppose it’s safe to say that food on SQ’s long-haul flights is generally better than those served on its regional flights. I had the Fried Noodles and Curry-Spiced Chicken Thigh for dinner on the flight headed for Frankfurt, and it was really good, certainly much more than what I would have expected of in-flight food. I also remembered it to be the subject of envy for a couple of people around me haha.
JFK-FRA: Singapore Airlines.
Woke up to breakfast and a few more hours to go to Singapore. I remember that I had a sudden craving when I was poking around my omelette - I really wanted to have some Nasi Lemak when I got back home. And I did :)

The Oasis is a nice and pleasant airport lounge to linger at while in transit at JFK. Other than the Starbucks machine and good range of alcoholic drinks to choose from, some of the food on offer were actually quite appetising as well. Take the Tomato Sauce Chicken for example, it reminded me more of a Tandoori but with a particular sweetness to it. Gobbled up quite a number of these because I missed lunch (too busy shopping at Times Square’s Aeropostale ha!)

Me and my colleague kinda stumbled upon this place while searching for a late dinner, and in some way we were glad we found Osteria Serafina. It’s a non-pretentious Italian diner that serves really good and authentic Homemade Pasta (done perfectly al dente) as well as smooth and delightful Tiramisu. The complimentary bread basket was as authentic as it gets, being as cold, tough and plain as the ones I had in Italy ;)
Osteria Serafina. 38 Between Park and Madison Avenue 58th Street, New York.
Dinner at Spice Market wasn’t enough, so after a little tour of Chelsea Market Elaine brought me to a cosy Italian eatery nearby - Scarpetta - for dessert. The Raspberry Cheesecake Sundae (which sadly I heard is no longer on the menu!) was deliciously sweet and enjoyable.
