Imagine having a meal tray slipped in front of you containing not one but six inflight meals that you must sample!

Well, that’s exactly what happened to us recently on a flight from Hong Kong to Kunming in order to sample the Hong Kong Express Menu!

Hong Kong Express is a low-cost airline operating from Hong Kong across Asia offering customers the option to purchase their inflight meals.

WHAT WE ATE? – EVERYTHING! 

Yes, we had a taste of every single hot food item that’s for sale onboard Hong Kong Express flights.

This included; 

Hong Kong Style Baked Pork Chop with Fried Rice

Chicken Curry Rice

Korean Style Beef Rice

Peking Style Roasted Duck Wrap

Dim Sum set with Oolong Tea

Mini BBQ Pork and Chicken Pies

All meals are priced from around HKD $40.00 up to HKD $60.00 that’s around USD $5.00+ per meal and it’s pretty good value when you compare it to airport prices.

WHAT WAS GOOD

The Korean Style Beef Rice (left-hand side in the middle) was our favourite dish along with the Dim Sum set with Oolong Tea! We’re told that the Dim Sum set is a typical Hong Kong Style Breakfast so if it’s available definitely try it. All meals can be purchased with a hot drink enabling you to save a little money as part of a combo deal.

NOT SO GOOD

The Roast Duck Wrap looks a little bigger in the menu pictures than it does in real life, it was a lot smaller than what we thought it would be. It still tasted great, but we felt that the quantity was lacking a little bit.

WOULD WE EAT ON HONG KONG EXPRESS AIRLINES AGAIN?

Yes, yes, yes! Hong Kong Express offer a very good buy on board menu when compared to other low-cost airlines operating in the region. The service was nice, the planes were clean and the food was delicious and had lots of variety. You can check out the inflight menu right here.

NOW WATCH – HK EXPRESS MEALS INFLIGHT!

NOTE

A big thanks to the inflight catering department at Hong Kong Express Airlines for providing the meals to us, all opinions as always are our own.
