We recently tested out the food on Peach Aviation which has its main base at Osaka Kansai Airport in Japan. The airline doesn’t serve free inflight meals, but instead offers a great range of local Japanese options that you can buy. On a flight with only about an hours flying time we went crazy buying as much food as we possibly could! With the help of our seat neighbour (who we just met) we ended up consuming all this food on this very short flight.

THE MENU

Seriously look at that inflight menu! Yes Japanese airports have great food options but if you can save yourself for the flight you will really enjoy the experience.

Look at the food options available on this menu, even on short flights they will try and accommodate your requests of hot meal options.

THE MEALS

We tried the Kobe Beef bento box, the sushi bento box, the Japanese pancake and had room for dessert! The Kobe Beef Bento box is the most expensive item on the menu it will set you back around 1800YEN, (Around US$18.00) however we totally believe it was worth every penny. The Kobe beef is served with rice, salad and noodles and comes in a cute little box that you wish you could take home with you.

The sushi bento box is chock full of Japanese delights and it’s made fresh daily in Osaka. It will set you back around USD$7.50 for the box and we feel it’s good value for money. It comes with a wide range of sushi and local delicacy options. We were starting to struggle with all the food that we ordered so we gladly offered our seat neighbor a taste of the bento box. They loved it!

THE JAPANESE PANCAKE!

Tip! The Japanese pancake takes around 15 mins for the cabin crew to prepare so order early if you can. The pancake itself is made by a famous restaurant chain called Chibo. It will be served wrapped in foil and you will need to unwrap it and add your condiments. You can choose from five different condiments Okonomi Sauce (special Japanese barbecue sauce for “Okonomi Yaki”), Katsuo Bushi (bonito fish flakes), Aonori (seaweed powder) and Mayonnaise. To watch us making the pancake inflight see the video below.

DESSERT!

For dessert we order the Peach eclair which even has pink cream inside and pink frosting on top! During Summer the airline offers an inflight sherbert and we have heard nothing but great things about it.

THE VERDICT

Definitely worth buying something on board! This is a great little airline that offers some of the nicest food for purchase items we have seen in a very long time! You can check out the inflight menu here.
