Cathay partners with Hong Kong's Duddells on new in-flight menu

Cathay's new-look, Cantonese-style business class menu.

Cathay Pacific will be serving up an exciting menu of Hong Kong flavours in partnership with Michelin-starred local restaurant, Duddells.

The promotional menu is part of Cathay’s ongoing ‘Hong Kong Flavours’ dining service in first and business class. Both Cathay and Cantonese-specialist Duddell’s are home-grown Hong Kong brands. Yenn Wong, chief executive officer of JIA Group under which Duddells operates, admitted partnering with Cathay has been a long-held goal.

“Duddells is one of our most popular outlets amongst tourists and already has an outpost at Hong Kong airport,” he said, adding that the airport outlet helped foster Hong Kong’s food culture with an international audience.

As a result of the collaboration, first class passengers can look forward to a selection of appetisers such as chilled abalone and cucumber with black vinegar, or minced pork with mixed vegetables and pomelo. The main menu includes Shanghainese-inspired red braised Iberico pork belly with radish or wok-fried lobster in white pepper sauce with spring onions and ginger. And for dessert there’s chrysanthemum and longan jelly.

Meanwhile, business class passengers can tuck into drunken prawns with aged Huadiao wine, shredded chicken and jellyfish salad, steamed halibut with cordyceps flowers, barramundi fillets with pickled mustard greens in hot and sour rice noodle soup with ginger milk curd for dessert.

Duddells is located on Duddell Street in Hong Kong’s Central district.
