I was definitely not looking forward to leaving Japan and returning home, what more when we are leaving via Haneda which according to travellers is alot smaller and has fewer shops than Narita Airport.

We checked in early enough for some time at the ANA Lounge and I found a spot with such a pretty view of the aeroplanes.

Sake fresh from the tap?

These intrigued me but I was not up for sake so early in the day, unfortunately.

More spirits, anyone?

The lounge area was spacious enough to throw a party even with plenty of counter seats and cushion seats which were all occupied.

A rather limited selection of cold and warm dishes were available. Nothing fancy, just good enough for nibbles before more food on board the plane!

Abit of everything got me a full plate of food, even.

Salad in Japan is a different ball game altogether, exceptionally crisp greens and even a normal dressing tastes great.

This hole in wall ramen collection point almost went unnoticed had it not been for a fellow diner.

Udon, ramen, soba, you name it they have it.

Ramen with pork broth was tasty enough for the last bowl of ramen before we bid Japan farewell.

Definitely the ramen shops would have fared way better but it was really a decent attempt by the hot kitchen.

Gluttony probably got the better of me when I caved into a bowl of curry soba.

Curry don too.

It wasn't long before it was time for take off and with the most grudging footsteps I bade Japan farewell.

The usual nibbles, except it would be nice if they actually gave more than a packet?

DSC_9801

Western or Japanese, I thought we could have the best of both worlds.

Smoked Salmon with Potato Salad

Anything smoked salmon is a no brainer for me and Japanese potato salad? I'm sold.

Roasted Christmas Turkey with Chestnut Stuffing
Winter Vegetables and Potatoes
Just because it is christmas and a seasonal special, I had to order it. Unless I was sure to fly SQ again for next year's christmas.

Dry and to some extent cardboard like, I enjoyed the winter vegetables and potatoes far more than the protein itself.

Always pick Japanese, if you're flying out of Japan.

Zensai 

This was impressive, especially for airline meals. The assortment and taste even was up to expectations.

Japanese Cold Noodles


This time round, the soba was way better than the cha soba enroute to Tokyo.

Kakuni
Japanese style braised pork with vegetables and steamed rice
Hearty warm stew to go with rice, this was homecooked up in mid air and so tasty.


DSC_9812

Red bean icecream with rice balls!

Though this looked pretty far off from the projected image but still a really ingenious combination and something different from the usual magnums or cornettos. On the sweet side, but I was relishing every bite!
