Yuki-Akari Ramen – Tokyo, Japan

So I had all these worries about our domestic flight from Osaka to Tokyo. I made sure I didn’t buy much from Osaka so that my luggage would stay within weight limit for the domestic flight (smaller weight limit compared to international). We got to the airport pretty early but well, not necessary because there is no real security check. Nothing serious anyway. You can keep your shoes on as long as they’re not high tops.

The flight is about an hour and I had an aisle seat. A Japanese businessman had the middle seat and he kept going to the bathroom. At least twice. On a one hour flight. It was totally fine with me but it was one hour!

Anyway, we got to Haneda, grabbed our luggage and headed to the Airport Limousine ticketing right away. We couldn’t believe our eyes, the next available bus was in HOURS. We weren’t about to take a taxi so we bit it and took the earliest ride we could get. We were both hungry so we decided to eat at the airport. Usually a no no right? Well in Hawaii that is…but the food was not bad (both taste and price)! Check it out.

Zangi (Hokkaido-style deep fried chicken) | ¥520 (plus tax)

Fancy description, tasted good. It’s basically chicken karaage, nothing special.

Tsukemen (spicy sesame) | ¥900 (plus tax)
Shio White Leek Ramen | ¥800 (plus tax)
Add egg | ¥100 (plus tax)
Gyoza (6 pieces) | ¥450 (plus tax)

My ramen. Pretty good! I do enjoy a cleaner broth from time to time so it was nice. Good egg as you can see, perfect yolk! Too bad I had to pay for the egg. The gyoza was good too. It was nice to have a seat in a casual restaurant to eat. We were able to rest a bit after finishing our food, no real rush from them for us to leave. Although, it was not a busy period. Haha

    I have always found the food in the Japanese airports to be pretty good. I have only experienced two of them, Haneda and Narita, but I have been told that food in the other airports are good too. I used to love to look at the mock-ups of the food in the windows, then choose what I wanted to eat, then go in and order.

      Agree Alan! I guess just everything in Japan is better huh? I did notice that kind of restaurant next door to this place but still did not regret eating this instead!
