You have heard the news that we will be sending Fadzli to make the very first food delivery to outer space, and watched his interview with us. In this article, we list the 4 types of food which he recommends to be eaten there!
1 Healthy & Organic
Greenola Juice Drinks
When space is limited, it isn’t surprising that a concentrated juice drink ranks among the most favourite meals up in space. It’s healthy, tasty, and above all not messy. Easily consumed with a straw, the juice drink, such as this one from Daily Juice, is outer space approved.
Compactness definitely goes a long way in space. Favoured among many astronauts is apparently the chicken wrap – just like this example from 4Fingers. No need for cutlery, the wrap can be enjoyed easily – even when floating upside down.
2 Trending Favourites
Chocolate Lava Cake
Being up in space, it is important to keep your energy levels high too. What better what to do so than with a chocolate lava cake? Loved for its rich flavour, this intense flavour bomb offers enough sugar for a hard day in space – and it is therefore part of the daily dessert routine in space. 320 Below offers one just like it.
Frozen Yogurt Parfait
The frozen yogurt trend has reached space as well. As the astronauts have the technical possibilities to easily alter the temperatures of their food, frozen yogurt is quickly made in the International Space Station itself. Parfait creations, such as this one from Yogart, are a delicious standard.
3 Local Delights
Curry Chicken Bun
It seems very unbelievable at first, but the Curry Chicken Bun ranks among the most popular foods in the space station. As grilling bigger chicken isn’t the most comfortable activity in space, the Curry Chicken Bun is a more manageable alternative. Check out Bun Times and feel like an astronaut.
BBQ Chicken Satay
Living temporarily in space, one might have to deal with one or another inconvenience. But having to give up on BBQ Satay Chicken isn’t one. Using an ultra high burner (designed for experiments only), the crew in space can make BBQs in only a few seconds. Hence, the popularity of BBQ Chicken Satay – just like at Royal Thai.
4 All-time Favourites
You really wouldn’t expect to find burgers on the list of favourite outer space foods. However, if you read some of the astronauts’ explanations, you would begin to understand. As due to gravitational forces, burgers are more difficult to eat on planet earth, and they become quite a comfortable food in space, where gravity isn’t such a big issue for burger lovers. Think about it when you eat the next time at The Burger Office.
This one really makes sense. Chicken wings are easy to keep, can quickly be prepared, and don’t make a big mess when they float through the space station, especially like those from 4Fingers. According to the report from NASA, it is even environmentally friendly to dispose the chicken bones in space. That way they don’t even produce waste.
We hope that you have enjoyed the sneak peek at foodpanda’s plans to bring food delivery to a whole new level. Check out Fadzli’s most recent updates here.
