Beginning today, American Airlines First and Business Class customers traveling to and from Tokyo can savor a new, enhanced menu that artfully blends the deep traditions of Japanese cuisine with the flavors of Western fare.
Sam Choy, celebrity consulting chef for American, has created new Asian-fusion entrees to augment the American Airlines premium cabin inflight experience.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to utilize Chef Choy's award-winning culinary expertise for our Japanese menu," said Lauri Curtis, American's Vice President – Onboard Service.

Pulehu Filet with Shiitake Mushroom Cream Sauce – grilled filet of beef paired with a shiitake mushroom cream sauce served with spinach and corn mashed potatoes and sauteed seasonal vegetables
Tahitian Crabmeat Soup – a hearty, creamy soup with coconut milk, spinach and crabmeat

I leave a response each time I especially enjoy a post on a website or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.
Usually it's a result of the passion communicated in the post I read. And after this article "American Airlines Enhances Inflight Service Between U.S. and Tokyo". I was moved enough to post a thought :) I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or do a few of these responses come across like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I'd like to follow anything new you
have to post. Could you list every one of your communal pages like your twitter
