Would you like a wider choice of meals on your KLM flight? If so, we offer four delightful à la carte meals! Ordering from the à la carte menu is easy to do online at before you depart.

Order à la carte

Because tastes differ, we offer everyone a wider choice. In addition to our standard meals, you can now enjoy 5 special à la carte meals.

You can order à la carte meals:

  • At an additional cost between 12 and 15 euros
  • Exclusively when seated in Economy Class on intercontinental KLM flights departing from Amsterdam except when flying to Cairo, San Francisco, Tel Aviv and Toronto

Dutch tradition

Discover Dutch cuisine: healthy, hearty and flavourful. Begin your Dutch dinner with a starter of beef salad à la hussard with asparagus spears wrapped in ham.

Then enjoy a main course of two kinds of hotchpotch, one with kale and the other with carrots, traditionally served with a Dutch sausage and a rich gravy.

A selection of Dutch cheeses – Leerdammer and Old Amsterdam – accompanied by walnuts and plums, is followed by a dessert featuring a spiced biscuit mousse with caramel sauce.

Note: this meal is available on intercontinental KLM flights departing as of 1 December 2011.

Japanese delight

Love the elegance of Japanese cuisine? Indulge yourself in the refined tastes of the land of the rising sun!

A delicate entrée of sushi is followed by tasty chicken with steamed rice and vegetables.

Your menu is accompanied by a Japanese ‘soba’ noodle salad with subtly smoked salmon.

Bella Italia

A Bella Italia meal includes the most delicious flavours of Italy!

The starter, served on a bed of mixed lettuce, is an organic veal rib-eye with vitello tonnato sauce garnished with asparagus, roasted sweet pepper and pine nuts.

Next, enjoy a delightful risotto primavera: a creamy Italian rice dish with several different kinds of vegetables.

Alongside is a crispy salad with marinated black and green olives and sweet pepper. Your Italian meal is topped off with a real Italian classic dessert: tiramisu.

Vegetarian favourite

If you want a meal that’s both delightful and healthful, try this richly varied vegetarian dinner.

As a starter, we serve a kemela salad with mango, coconut and sweet pepper. Alongside is falafel (deep-fried balls of spicy chickpeas) and apricots stuffed with chèvre and purple shiso.

Your main course consists of black-eyed peas in red onion with thyme, accompanied by braised spinach and baked sweet pumpkin, with a crisply mixed salad on the side.

Then enjoy Lemon posset pecan: a creamy lemon dessert with pecans.

Indonesian rice dishes

An Indonesian rice table with its many highly flavoured dishes is a favourite culinary tradition among the Dutch. Savour the flavours of this famous legacy!

You start your rice table with a ketoprak salad made from thin bami (noodles) and vegetables. Alongside is chicken saté (chicken kebab with spicy peanut sauce) accompanied by banana chips and deep-fried onion bits.

The main course is ikan bumbu rujak nasi, a sweet-spicy rice dish featuring fried pangasius. A little serving of sambal (hot chilli sauce) completes this tasty dish. A coconut and sweet potato salad and an Asian fruit salad with roedjak sauce (sweet soy sauce with tamarind and a dash of crushed chilli) complement the rice dish.

And finally, spekkoek: several thin layers of cake in two colours.
