Check out the collaboration between Japan Rail Cafe and Japan Airlines

As much as we want to support Singapore Airlines (SIA) and its home delivery of business- and first-class meals, they are quite pricey as you’ll have to fork out $288 and $448 respectively.

If you still want the airplane in-flight meal experience, consider heading to Japan Rail Cafe from now till Jan 31. It has collaborated with Japan Airlines (JAL) to serve meals you’ll get on the airplane.

Chicken or fish?
Choose from two menu varieties that have been specifically chosen for their popularity among passengers—Salmon Miso Yaki ($25) and Chicken Takiawase Tamago ($23).


Prepared by SATS (JAL’s inflight caterer in Singapore), they are served true to form on JAL trays and compartmentalised into two appetisers, a main and dessert. 

The former features grilled miso-marinated salmon fillet, shiitake mushroom, carrot, snow peas, and shredded tamago on Japanese rice, while the latter is a succulent chicken thigh with shiitake mushrooms, green beans, red peppers and shredded tamago on Japanese rice.

Both choices come with Zaru Udon (chilled udon noodles served with wasabi and soba dipping sauce), Kobachi (a side dish of spinach, corn and shimeji mushrooms in a savoury broth), as well as a slice of JAL Signature Earl Grey Chiffon Cake for a sweet and fragrant end to your meal. They are available for lunch and dinner, while stocks last. 

These meals are strictly limited in quantity, with only 600 meals available during the month-long promotion. 

You can also grab some JAL merchandise that include items such as chopstick holders, stationery, tote bags, model planes and furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth). 

For every in-flight meal ordered, you’ll get a chance to enter the grand lucky draw where you could win one of two JR East passes. Plus, you’ll be entitled to airfare discounts of up to 28 per cent, valid for travel until Mar 31 2022. Terms and conditions apply.
