To give the true “airplane” experience, the JAL meals will be served on trays and compartmentalised into two appetisers, a main and dessert. There will be two menu varieties, chosen for their popularity among passengers.
The Salmon Miso Yaki option costs $25 and the Chicken Takiawase Tamago set costs $23. These will be available for lunch and dinner, while stocks last.
Both meal options come with Zaru Udon – chilled udon noodles served with wasabi and soba dipping sauce, Kobachi – a ‘small bowl’ or side dish of spinach, corn and shimeji mushrooms in a savoury broth. End off the meal with the JAL Signature Earl Grey Chiffon Cake.
Included in the price is a choice of coffee (Hot Drip Coffee or Cold Brew) or tea (Hot Citrus Green Tea or Iced Citrus Green Tea) by Japan Rail Cafe.
With each in-flight meal ordered, diners get to enter the grand lucky draw with two winners winning one JR East pass each.
JAL Merchandise for Sale
Also available during the Japan Rail Café and JAL collaboration, there will be 19 unique items for sale which include JAL chopstick holders ($17) and Japanese stationery to handy tote bags, model planes as well as JAL branded golf balls and markers. The JAL Furoshiki ($14, Japanese wrapping cloth) will also be available.
Japan Airlines’ Singapore-based cabin crew will be at JAPAN RAIL CAFE every Saturday and Sunday in January, starting from 9 January 2021, from 12pm to 6pm. They will be sharing on the art of wrapping gifts with furoshiki, as well as folding origami.

We are delighted that our friends in Singapore will be able to relive happy moments – whether it is the anticipation of arrival while enjoying a meal onboard, or purchasing a memento of your journey – through dining at Japan Rail Cafe.”
