I was hungry when we boarded the Cebu Pacific Flight from Puerto Princesa to Manila at around lunch time. I’m not a person who’s a fan of buying food from their inflight meals but I was really hungry so I checked their menu and saw the Kani Mango Sandwich for 180 Pesos.
Kani (Crab) and Mango reminds me of California Maki which I really love so it might be a really good idea to order Kani Mango Sandwich. I ordered one along with a Blue Calamansi flavored water.
The flight stewardess arrived and brought the Kani Mango Sandwich in a thin plastic container wrapped in cling wrap.
What I first noticed is that the picture had way more stuff in between the sandwich bread than the one in front of me. But I have experienced way too many of this scenario that I am already immuned to this disappointment. Besides, I am hungry and there is no way I am going to eat the picture than the real thing.
I checked the inside, there was one piece of mango (check), a few bits of kani sticks (check) and a few lettuce bits (check). All the ingredients are there including the spreading of mayonnaise. But still far from the total volume of the picture.
The taste was exactly how I imagined it to be, like California Maki minus the rice in between a sandwich bread, which was good by the way. The Blue Calamansi flavored water was a perfect pair for this the Kani Mango Sandwich.
Would I order it again?
Yes! That is if I am in the same super hungry state when I ride a Cebu Pacific Flight. Otherwise, I shall just behave like a good seatmate on the plane and enjoy the view.
