Default How far ahead can you book BTC?

This does not seem to be true (for my Suites flights JFK-FRA-SIN-BOM). I have my flight in 3 months and BTC is not available online on SQ website. So I called an operator who said it's too early to book special meals and suggested I try later...

Unless that's a very recently introduced rule that's bollox. You can BTC when your flight is booked.

My experience has all along been that online BTC selection is not available till closer to flight date but I don't remember it being that close! I thought it opened about 6 months ahead or so.

But on the other hand, is there a need to be able to make a meal selection so far ahead? I don't even have an idea of what I'd fancy eating a week ahead, much less 3 or 6 months.

Would also appreciate some recommendation and opinion on the following dishes:

For SQ26

1) Pan-Seared Chilean Seabass in Bouillabaisse Broth
2) Artichoke-tomato crusted loin of lamb in thyme sauce, French beans with bacon, and gratin potatoes

and for SQ15

1) Roasted Chilean bass in creamy cider vinegar sauce with roasted tomato, parsley potato, baby carrots, and asparagus
2) Korean Galbi / Samgyetang

Thx

Yeah. It opened up for me as well. Chose following:
1. JFK - FRA, Lobster Thermidor (just had to have one!). If it's chewy, I hope SQ will allow mains from the on-board menu.
2. FRA - SIN, Lamb Rendang for lunch and Prawn Wanton soup for breakfast (I don't like German food all that much, and I also don't expect much for SE Asian cooking ex-Frankfurt!). Previous experience of a Keiseki meal on LH F metal (FRA-NRT) was not good and I hope catering for SQ is from another kitchen!
3. SIN - BOM, Kyo Keiseki (I love Japanese food) but don't eat beef/veal. I wonder if there's a way to insert additional notes within the BTC. I didn't see any place on SQ website - suggestions anyone? I could revert to Shahi Thali from the on-board menu.

I am doing the opposite of you : SIN-FRA-JFK.. and I chose the lobster for FRA-JFK leg (hopefully it is not chewy, last 2 lobsters with them was kinda tough and chewy)

Tried the kaiseki once ex-Sin - booked it for my wife. She only managed to eat 1/3 of the things..

I guess it doesn't suit my wife's taste bud

I have not tried the Malay dishes but my friend who flew on SQ recently gave a thumbs up for the Nasi Lemak

The BTC Nasi Lemak is good and authentic. Don't bother with the onboard menu Nasi Lemak though.

BTC-ed nasi lemak for my breakfast on the SIN-FRA sector

Need some recommendation on this:

Pan-Seared Chilean Seabass in Bouillabaisse Broth
An adaptation from its Marseillaise original, its broth is flavoured with saffron, white wine and a splash of Pernod. Served with slow-cooked capsicum confit and zucchini pasta.

has anyone tried it? tentatively booked this for my supper - was thinking of the 8oz ribeye though, but worried that it may be too heavy for supper
