Singapore Airlines A380 Suites , Sydney to Singapore

 

Singapore Airlines first class on the A380 is called “suites ” this flight was SQ232  from Sydney to Singapore. I have always wanted to fly Singapore Air’s A380 suites but have have never got the chance until now.

The Silver Kris lounge was recently renovated it still has that new feel to it , walking in there is a lounge area with seats / couches,  in the middle is the dining area with the buffet plus  some tables on the other side is some workstations & then seats by the windows overlooking the airport.

All the food served on the flight was excellent restaurant quality. I don’t know how they make the food taste so fresh its like it was just cooked the meat moist and the greens crispy all presented beautifully on the plate.

Ippudo – Sydney

 

Im a big fan of Ramen and Ippudo is right up on my list of favorite places to get it in Sydney. At $16 its certainly not the cheapest in town but considering it is in the Westfeilds food court where a sandwich can cost $14 I don’t think the $16 for a Ramen in a sit down table service place expensive. One thing I like about Ipudo is the ” Kae-dama”  so you can another serve of noodles for $2 great for when your really hungry.
