The best thing you can do while waiting for your next flight in Narita Airport is to eat some yummy food – duh! People either go for soup or sushi. My choice is always going to be ramen. I’m a soup girl at heart, and nothing can get in the way of me ordering one of these little suckers. Somehow we always end up in the same area with Snack and Cafe AVION being the closest ramen spot, and so I’ve never gotten the chance to try any other ramen joints at this airport.
I love the pork ramen in miso broth. So hearty and filling. I will admit that I always forget to ask them to take out the corn and bean sprouts. Probably out of too much excitement. I forget that I have a hypersensitivity to bean spouts (makes my tongue and throat super itchy), and that I hate corn in soups. Nevertheless, it’s still a very satisfying meal. I shared a bowl with Mikey and pushed around the corn and bean sprouts for him to enjoy. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, right?
The flight was a full and crowded one – eek! I get anxiety when people are too close to me (*shivers*). Mikey, food, and movies kept me well occupied though. I even got to half-sleep at random times. Guess after almost 18 hours of travel I was too tired to care about my anxieties.
As far as the plane food, the beef stew thing was meh, and I didn’t care much for the bread roll. I really liked their salad dressing and pound cake though! We even got to have ice cream!!!
After almost 24 hours, we finally landed in Bangkok, but it was still about a 20 to 30 minute cab ride into the city. I was delirious by the time we checked into Le Fenix Hotel. Mikey had stayed at this hotel before, and really liked it so we decided to book our seven day stay there. It had a really neat square theme, and sat on one of the busier streets. I really liked that white decor with pops of color. Gave it a modern yet 70s vibe.
