Flying to Tokyo with Japan’s flag carrier Japan Airlines / Nihon Koku. And this time we got to enjoy some extra luxurious Business Class and of course its menu. The menu offered two option Western style food and Japanese styled food. So guess what I went for….JAPANESE of course…For all of you who thought Western…shame on you!
Airline: Japan Airlines
Flight: JL 414 (27/11/2016)
Itinerary: HEL – NRT
Aircraft(s). Boeing 787-8
What did I get:
Sakizuke smoked duck with pear cream cheese sauce and salmon tartare & marinated vegetables with sour cream and muikku. Two small starters to open your appetite for more. Very nice.
Irodori Gozen – colourful delicacies served in a bento styled box.
1st row: Smoked salmon & broccoli dressed with egg yolk vinegar sauce, simmered fried sea bass, fried tofu ball with crabmeat and simmered yuba
2nd row: scallop and salmon roe, lotus root stuffed with spicy cod roe and sesame soy sauce, Egg roll, roasted duck, simmered shrimp, gingko nut, steamed sole and tofu cake, tilapia rolled with kelp, crabmeat rolled with radish, grilled squid with egg yolk, grille dblack cod with saikyo miso flavor. AMAZING!!!
When I first read the menu I thought that one should choose betweenteh Irodori Dozen and the Dainomon –WRONG. I got both
The Dainomono featured steamed sea bream with a king trumpet mushroom, beef roll with burdock and chicken ball, shrimp ball & green laver flavoured ball. All served with gohan (steamed rice), miso soup and japanese pickles. Although I was full from the Irodori gozen I could not stop eating this one.
And to finish off dinner – kanmi. A carrot orange mousse. Very delicious.
And just before landing breakfast. Here I went for some traditional western styled pancakes with vanilla sauce and fruits – sorry I am a sugar junkie in the mornings.
Indeed everything very nice and delicious. Japan Airlines honoring its culture and reputation. I did not expect less
