SEOUL, Feb. 21 (Korea Bizwire) – Singapore Airlines said Monday that it is partnering with Yim Jung-sik, a two-star Michelin chef, to introduce Korean food (hansik) on Singapore-Incheon flights starting in March.
Economy class travelers will have bibimbap added to their meal choices, while business class passengers will be served grilled tuna bibimbap or Korean-style beef ribs.
The full-course hansik meal for first class passengers will include tangpyeongchae, or mung bean jelly salad, grilled lobster with gochujang (red chili paste) beurre blanc sauce, and corn mousse cake.
Chef Yim was the first Korean to receive two Michelin stars for his restaurant Jungsik in New York City. His other franchise located in Seoul, with the same title, was also selected as one of 24 local restaurants by the Michelin Guide in November of last year.
