Flights from JAPAN / Western Cuisine

What I always keep in mind when I cook is that the meal is delicious, the presentation is eye-pleasing, and the food is good. I will give my best while praying that everyone will enjoy delicious healthy in-flight meals that is satisfying but not too heavy on the stomach.
