JAL will be serving this new rice burger onboard select routes from the 1st June to 31st August. This is a new JAL Original version of another of the establishment’s speciality burger – the Air MOS Rice Burger.
The Air MOS Rice Burger is adapted from MOS Burger’s popular MOS Rice Burger Kinpira which uses steamed rice patties instead of bread, to sandwich a generous serving of mixed vegetables and chicken strips. The filling includes burdock, lotus root, carrot, oyster mushrooms, black sesame, and Japanese chilli pepper, and is sautéed in a light soy sauce and sweet miso paste to deliver a deep, rustic flavour of Japan.
This new rice burger is the product of a second collaboration between JAL and MOS Burger. In response to positive reviews by customers after the introduction of the first – Air MOS Burger – a version of the company’s trademark Teriyaki Beef Burger between June and November last year, JAL decided to cooperate with various well-known Japanese restaurants and food chains to bring familiar favourites onboard for customers in a series of special in-flight meal tie-ups now known as Air Series.
On select flights to Europe and U.S theAir MOS Rice Burger will be served in Premium Economy and Economy Class during a second meal service, and will be available to First and Executive Class customers any time during the flight as part of the “Anytime You Wish*” service.
