I had the Japanese meal, which was good... although was a little full on that fantastic beef curry from the JAL F lounge so didn't finish most of it. Also, one of my favorite things on AA are those porcelain sake bottles/cups they have on flights to/from NRT. Great stuff.

Also, really like the design of the new menu... nice textured paper and classy feel ^

No, cookies/cream with chocolate shavings

Forgot....breakfast was usual cold choices.

Hot item was a Huevos Rancheros Skillet. Not a hit with me. Tortilla strips were very chewy of course and way to many onions ( in the dawn light, I thought it was a pile of potatoes) anyway, I think Mr. Sandoval needs to rethink that dish. Concept was good but it didn't translate at 41,000 feet.

NRT-JFK First Class

Japanese Winter Meal

Appetizer Tray
Koachi Dish-Marinated flatfish with chrysanthemum roll, vinegared carrot and radish julienne, pickled cucumber and seaweed

Hassun Dish - Grilled marinated prawn (eyeball intact, ugh), sweet simmered black soybeans on skewer, lotus root with spicy cod roe, sake steamed taro root and egg cake

Western Dish - Cod escabeche served with sliced onion, julienned carrot and red and yelow peppers

Main Tray
Simmer Dish - Crabmeat and lily bulb paste dumpling served with carrot, radish and mizuna leaf, accented by minced chicken

Entree - Grilled red snapper saikyo-yaki style with omelette, lotus root and simmered kept roll

--

Much better meal than the JFK-NRT. I would have this one again.

I don't have the list of wines but the sake is great and the Malbec on this flight was superb. Better than the JFK-NRT reds. Same sake.

If anyone knows the details on the Malbec FC JFK-NRT please post them. I'd like to track it down.

Same menu on MAN-JFK 8 Jan 2012.

Hot breakfast menu item was the Huevos Rancheros which I was looking to try but only the cold tray was loaded. This is the 3rd time in the last 2 months that only the cold breakfast has been offered on that route even though the menu indicated a hot option. It was obvious that the crew didn't want the pax to know that and were actively discouraging ordering. Only when I resisted their negative recommendation they admitted it wasn't actually available.

FYI - I have twice (in the past year or so) gotten minor, but quite uncomfortable, food poisoning from Indian food on flights from ORD. I really like Indian food, but won't try it again on AA.
