A few months ago we wrote about a special collaboration between British Airways and meal-kit delivery company Feast Box. Whilst this was a special one-off collaboration, Feast Box has now joined forces with Singapore Airlines to celebrate the airline’s 50th anniversary flying to London.

This time the format is slightly different. Feast Box is inviting you to choose from fourteen authentic South East Asian dishes. Each recipe takes between 30 and 60 minutes to prepare, with most around 40 minutes.

You can order your Feast Box here. Pricing depends on which of the 14 dishes you choose.

Whilst BA’s First box was pre-cooked and prepared, for this collaboration you’ll have to do all the chopping and cooking yourself. This is more in line with the Hello Fresh-style subscription that Feast Box normally offers.

Feast Box sent me a sample box to try out the new recipes, which included braised beef noodles and Hainanese chicken rice, the Singaporean national dish.

I was in the middle of moving house when my box arrived, and it turns out the timing was perfect. Not having to worry about planning what to cook and going to the supermarket meant I could focus on unpacking and tidying the new place.

The box is big and red as you can see above.

Inside you’ll find the meals separated into individual paper bags and the meats in a coolbag made of waste cotton product. This is much better than the recycled plastics etc that some companies give you:

Recipes are printed on paper recipe cards, with a full list of ingredients and quantities for either two or four people depending on how many you ordered.

Slightly confusingly the actual ingredients sometimes differ from the recipe – ie. the recipe calls for rice wine but you’ll receive a sachet of mirin. Not everyone will know that mirin is a type of rice wine so the kit isn’t wholly fool-proof.

Following the steps is pretty easy, although I do wish that the recipe cards bolded all the ingredients to make it easier to scan. Sometimes a step also seems to be omitted. For example, in one recipe, I was told to pour in the chicken stock, but at no point was I told how much water to mix with the provided stock cube. Luckily my guestimate was right, but a less confident cook may be more perplexed.

Nonetheless, I managed to put together the braised beef noodles with ease:

…. and they tasted great! Whilst there’s always a LOT of plastic sachets and other bits in these meal kits, which is a shame, they do offer a great way of mindless-cooking. You don’t have to worry about waht you want to make or when, or going to the shops to buy the ingredients and inevitably ending up with random leftover bits. Everything is very precise and calculated.

It is also a great way of switching things up if you’re bored of cooking the same things. I have kept a number of recipe cards from meal kits over the years that I particularly liked and have now added to my repertoire.

    Tired the BA box which came with 2 meals the week after too. There were problems with missing items the first time for the 2 kits so got half off the following week. Out of the 4 kits (excluding BA), not a single recipe card was clear and consistent (some missed out info, some contradicted themselves and the worst suggested mixing some ingredients together only to then have to try and unpick them later in the process. So definitely not trying again.

    Did save me £230 off a BA flight though so not all bad…

  • Andrew says:

    I got excited when I read the headline as I thought the SQ meals at home concept they have been doing in Singapore had come to the U.K. But I see it’s a waste of time recipe card idea.

  • VK says:

    I wanted to order chicken rice for a while. turns out most london places that are half decent are selling this for over £20. so ordered the SQ one. lets hope its good. assuming if would be as I have had it on flight before.

    • RTS says:

      Ekachai on Deliveroo do a very good hainanese chicken for like £10?

  • Sam says:

    The content and pricing seem much more realistic and reasonable than the ‘BA First class pasta’ which sounds heavily overpriced just by an inflated brand name. Pasta is pasta, same goes with chicken rice.

    • Sam says:

      And if you’re into East Asian food, certainly SIA’s catering overall has a far better reputation (across all travel classes) than the depressing pack of grocery-store-standard crisps/Kitkat/water (which you even had to pay) in BA Economy. Perhaps that was why they had up to sell it to a ‘First Class’ meal with BA but no need with SIA.

      • 1ATL says:

        But this is SIA INSPIRED, not actual SIA catering. And as someone has said below the customer service of feast box is world’s apart from the airline itself. If I were BA, SIA or whoever and Feastbox came along and had propositioned their hatched plan to associate themselves with my brand, I’d be running for the hills for the harm it could potentially bring my business.

        • 1ATL says:

          Would have been a nice touch had they put some SIA actual menu items to SIA specification amongst the options. Singapore Airlines famous satay skewers with satay sauce for one. No we get something that Foodbox say inspired them which has nothing really to do with SIA at all.

        • Sam says:

          @1ATL yes the food was certainly not prepared by SIA, I mean it’s hard to run it logistically given SIA main facilities are in Singapore. The point I was trying to make was that, perhaps many can recall their negative experiences with BA’s catering, Feast Box had ended up with a ‘BA First Class pasta’ concept where should be less disputes. This time round, with SIA, they’re selling the boxes with SIA as a whole brand, not ‘SIA First Class chicken rice’, suggesting the company is more confident about SIA’s reputation.

          Speaking of the Feastbox’s customer service, I don’t know yet as I’ve just ordered a SIA box that’s due to arrive next week, but I can most definitely sure I’ll be much more lenient on my expectation on a £6.80 chicken rice than a £20 pasta from a meant-to-be 4-course meal which I didn’t buy.

  • Paul says:

    Feast box has hopeless customer service, food was great for weeks, but most boxes had issues and customer service would ignore parts of complaints then get rude when you ask them to address them.
    Enjoyed the food, it’s a shame the customer service was so bad we had to cancel our subscription.

  • Billy says:

    “but a less confident cook may be more perplexed”…do you consider yourself a whizz in la cocina then? 🥸

    • Lord Doncaster says:

      Need to come to the North for proper food and proper portions. Couldn’t feed an ant on some of the posh cobblers served up in London cafés.

  • Ali M says:

    I have had good experience.card missing twice but good cs
