If you have been reading the blog for a while you know I am really a Delta “fanboy” when it comes to most Delta food. Folks, it really is quite good. DeltaONE food, that is transcon, or better yet international meals can be just excellent. But offerings like the cold steak you see above is just nummy and I would be happy to have it quite often on Delta (I just wish they would bring it back).
What they do offer on a regular basis is the calzone. It is often PACKED with pepperoni and I have to say I very much enjoy it as well. And the side plate of cheese, fruit and the little chocolate square to finish off is just refreshing and truly enjoyable. Even the tiny salad is most times fresh and pleasant.
One thing I have not had in what seems like FOREVER is the mushroom soup. This is truly delicious and I wish it would be offered more often. The other soups are just OK and the only one I really dislike is the tortilla soup and wish they would never bring it onboard again.
Even the Delta burger is quite OK. Now I am not saying I would order it on the ground, but it really is quite an acceptable choice. The potato salad is nice and when accompanied with the fruit and cheese plate I am always a happy flyer.
Even when it comes to desserts they are often very nice. The chocolate cookie and cake for example with a Woodford “neat” is just an outstanding way to finish off a meal at 500 MPH at 32,000 feet.
The other thing I am REALLY missing is the Salted Caramels they at one time had lots of in the snack baskets and now seems to have gone away. I love these things and they are also UBER pleasant with a Woodford neat (yeah, yeah most things are good with a Woodford neat – I know)!
What are the few things they could still work on? The domestic wine is just so-so. They at times run out of Woodford on flights. But these are minor issues and just being picky.
So why this musing especially after the rookie post #100 all about Delta food? There are so many times via email or on twitter or in other places where folks say MEH about airline food. Maybe that is true about other airlines – but not Delta! 🙂 What do you think about Delta food? – René
