Review 2019 – Plane in the City, Kuala Lumpur

20190425_165719-01-1046x785After months of longing for the experience, I finally managed tick off this bucket list of mine – dining at Plane in the City.. remember how everyone was talking about a plane suddenly appearing in the middle of Bukit Bintang sometime last year? Don’t worry.. it is not related to any missing planes…

Anyway for months, I had been staring longingly at the plane everytime I pass Jalan Bukit Bintang…

Plane In The City is a unique dining experience offering diners a 90-minute experience where you’ll get to indulge fine dining in an actual Boeing 737 aircraft which has been beautifully decorated on ground… thus the current experience is of it being the most beautifully decorated plane interior…

Passengers will also get the option to experience a chance-of-a-lifetime getting to pose at the wing engine area as well as walk on the wings of the aircraft and snap selfies the Pilot’s cockpit…

Everything what most of us are looking for in an immersive dining experience… -great tasting food, unusual experiences and also beautiful instaworthy ambience and well, Plane in the City was all that…

My date for the day was AirAsia All Star Fahmi Esmail, also a close friend of mine.. it was however funny bringing a seasoned cabin crew along on a date to a grounded plane…

Put boarding time was 6pm but like all flights, you had to be there an hour early.. so we were there about 5pm, where we were ushered to the SKYLAND lounge, which is pretty and cosy…

The service was pretty good as they asked us if we wanted any drinks (payable) but we declined… at about 5.30pm, someone ushered us outside to the wing engine area where a step ladder was placed.. we were allowed to climb up to take photos.. while being cautioned to be safe.. we had plenty of fun alright..

Then we were ushered back to the SKYLAND lounge… at about 5.50pm we were then invited to board the plane…

The plane was like a normal plane outside, but inside was like a fairyland…

The interior had been decorated with plants, flowers and colourful paper butterflies, some encapsulated inside plastic bubbles….around the business class kind of seating area facing each other…and a bit spaced out enough for privacy (if you would like to whisper sweet nothings to your other half)..

We were invited to go to the captain’s cockpit for photos but ok… to be honest, this is a bit weird and funny.. because the windows look out to the busy Bukit Bintang road… and the cockpit is run down… and well, Fahmi has already had his fair share of airplane cockpits… maybe the next interior decorating might cover the windows with some night sky or clouds posters? Just my opinion… though…

The Aircraft Wing Walk experience for us was postponed as it was raining so we are so looking forward to doing it another day…

They even had a safety procedure briefing which was funny and kind of savage considering wanting to throw you out of the windows for smoking and well, it was amusing..and gave us all a giggle or two…

The meals were served… since we had the Economy Class package.. it was just 3 course…

The first course was the appetizer which was the Smoked Salmon and Kumara Salad Timbale, Yellow Pear and Tomato with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Dressing…. loved the salmon and somehow the sweet pear slices complimented the dish perfectly..

The second one was our main dish… I had the Roasted Japaneae Soy Glazed Chicken that came with Wasabi Whipped Potato, Daikon – Edamames and Miso Aioli.. it was truly flavorful and beautiful…

I enjoyed it a lot despite having some initial misgivings about the wasabi whipped potato since I am not a huge fan of wasabi, but it was just a light taste of wasabi, not too overpowering…

For the last course – the dessert, we were served Calamansi Mousse, Baby Apple and Vanilla Creme Anglaise…

I liked the presentation, taste and all.. but since cutting down sugar (for health reasons did not finish it..) Fahmi on the other hand really loved it and even polished off my leftovers….

Then all good things must come to an end.. and the crew announced the end of our dinner and we were given umbrellas as it was raining and escorted to our car..
