It’s been over a century since the unsinkable Titanic became an ironic victim of its own name and went down with more than 1500 lives.
This deadliest maritime disaster is forever etched into our memories, all thanks to James Cameron’s epic love saga between Jack and Rose (Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet) in the 1997 movie, Titanic. From the iconic iceberg clash to lavish dinners — this is one movie that will we're never letting go.
On its 105th anniversary this 15th April, we came across the last meal that was served on the ill-fated cruise.
Take a look at what the affluent and the impoverished ate the night of the catastrophe.

Despite its notoriety, Titanic was famous for its sophisticated culinary facilities. The affluent first-class section of the ship boasted lavish cafes and dining salons. An army of chefs, servers, hosts and kitchen staff worked non-stop to prepare 6000 meals a day.
As expected, the elite of the ship was privy to the most extraordinary treatment. Their dinners consisted of up to 13 courses—each with a different accompanying wine—and could last four or five hours. The 5-star menu included entrees like raw oysters, assorted hors d’oeuvre, sauté of chicken Lyonnaise, lamb with mint sauce, roast duckling with apple sauce and sirloin of beef with chateau potatoes.
As for the less privileged half of the ship, the menu was more about filling the belly than tantalising taste buds. Items such as hearty stews, vegetable soup, roast pork with sage and onions, boiled potatoes, currant buns, biscuits and freshly baked bread with plum pudding and oranges were featured on the menu.
