Get It While It's Hot! Lobster Mac & Cheese Makes It onto Delta's Menu
We've had delicious lobster themidor on Singapore Airlines and even lobster appetizers on both American Airlines and LAN, but now premium passengers on Delta will be able to fill their tummies with lobster mac & cheese! That's right, the cheesy American comfort food goodness of macaroni and cheese will be combined with delicate Maine lobster meat to become part of mile-high eats.
Starting this month, international BusinessElite passengers can order up the new item on long-haul flights. The dish, which is paired with a petit filet, comes from the fine lobster purveyors at Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company, and is similar to their dish offered in the mail-order catalog.
This deliciousness will be available through 2014 on intercontinental flights. If you get a chance to try this dish out, let us know what you think. In the mean time, we will just dream about sampling the Maine lobster, shell pasta and creamy marscapone-cheddar sauce topped with breadcrumbs and herbs.
We're just not sure if we are more excited about this or Delta's other big food announcement, their in-flight Shake Shack menu.
