Singapore Airlines B777-300ER Business Class SIN-FRA review

By Sunday, March 06, 2022 , , ,

Almost forgot to update my review of the Singapore Airlines B777-300ER Business Class ride from Singapore to Frankfurt when we went on our Germany trip (check out our 10 day Germany itinerary here)! Now that we're working on our relocation, i thought it was opportune to share the updated SQ Business Class review. 
Our trip started with a visit to the temporary SilverKris Lounge, which is the current KrisFlyer Gold Lounge. We didn't have much time to spare actually so i'm gonna do the lounge justice and refer you to Mainly Miles review of the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge here! One thing that i appreciated was the online ordering system which ensures that your food is fresh and "clean". 
Onto the already not so new Business Class seats on SQ. The seats are handcrafted from Scottish leather and diamond-stitched. 

The seats have new seating positions- the Lazy Z, a cradling position; and Sundeck, a lounging position that extends the base and foot of your seat so you fully stretch out. The seat back and leg rests could be adjusted independently, and you could adjust it to your preference. I actually fell asleep in the Lazy Z position while watching my pre-dinner movie. 
Of course, my favorite feature is that the seat transforms into a fully flat bed with a cushioned headboard so i could easily just prop myself up to watch a movie comfortably. I also caught some beauty sleep on the bed complete with linen, duvet and pillows. This is a must on any long haul flight! The 18 inch LCD TV could also be tilted downwards for viewing pleasure while you're lying down. 
I also appreciated the side console, which allows for easy stowage of small items and even a laptop. Since it sits above the armrest, i could easily grab my toiletries pouch, hand sanitizer etc. while seated or lying down. Ports (eXport, HDMI and USB) are also readily available for easy charging of electronic devices. 
A highlight on SQ is the 'Book the Cook' dining selection and i make it a point to try something different each time. Currently SIA is featuring a series of popular local dishes from renowned hawkers to celebrate the addition of Singapore’s hawker culture to UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This includes Bismillah Biryani Restaurant Chicken Dum Biryani, a Michelin Bib Gourmand Award Winner from 2016 to 2019, and also Boon Tong Kee Chicken Rice and Qiu Lian Ban Mian! And hello SQ satay how much i've missed you!
I actually have not tried Bismillah's Biryani and i must say it tasted really good! The chicken was really tender and the rice was still fluffy. Definitely order this. Jr ordered Grilled Beef Tenderloin with Black Pepper Sauce and he was eyeing my meal with envy (of course i shared some with him). This was cooked sufficiently juicy and comes with truffle mash. 
For supper, i decided a light comforting option would be perfect and went with the Red Rice and Fish Porridge specially created by COMO Shambhala. Jr frowned at my choice of meal but that changed when he took a bite of the hearty and savory red rice porridge, flavored with poached fish, wakame, kale and miso and topped with fresh ginger and coriander leaves. 

Jr's steamed Cod Fish Thai Style was tragically disappointing and i found the spicy lime sauce to be too acidic and the texture of the sauce was also slimy and reminded me of a lemon-flavored detergent. It was so bad and unappetizing i didn't even bother with a picture. 

I'll probably finally give the Bak Chor Mee a try next time! The soup version seems to be similar to the Bedok 85 soup version, whereas the dry version is robustly flavored with vinegar and chili. 
Counting down to the next ride in 3 months!
