Chow in Narita Airport

Stranded for eight hours in the airport is no fun at all, anyone can tell you that. But it did get better when we were given a meal voucher of 2000 yen each.
The thought of a Japanese meal was certainly more welcome than the inflight food.
We settled ourselves into a small cafe that had a menu that looked promising and we were not disappointed. Pretty good chow...

A chirashizushi set with cold soba and pickles

Sansai 山菜 soba (mountain vegetable noodle)

Very good miso ramen

Prawn tempura udon

Unagi with rice

Sauteed pork with mushroom and onions

All that plus a round of latte and green tea ice cream. The waiting time did feel shorter when the palates were busy.

Phew! At last, dished out all the goodies from our Japan trip. While doing these postings, it was like back in Japan again. Two trips for the price of one, not bad!

Yes, better stranded in big international airports than small ones. Was delayed in Tawau (a small town in Sabah) airport last year and it was hell- d one and only tiny canteen couldn't handle all the hungry paxs and it was dinner time!!

I was with my 2 colleagues, and another Sabah colleague drove us around. We also joined day trip to Kinabalu Park and Poring Hot Spring. Barely have time to myself. Anyway, am now planning to go again next March. This time i want to conquer the ISLANDS!

All the food you showed so far from your trip looked uber tasty and very well presented.

From the little mountain villages to the cosmopolitan airports. That says a lot about the Japanese.

When it comes to food, they're quite the perfectionists. Lovely dishes. Can you imagine KLIA having such class?
