SORA: ANA's First Ever Overseas Japanese Gourmet Hall Opens in Changi Airport T2

Monday, 13 November 2017

Visited SORA Japanese Gourmet Hall: ANA's first ever overseas Japan Gourmet Hall in Changi Airport's Terminal 2! I'm really honoured to be one of those who got invited to the launch of this new exciting restaurant in T2 and was glad I got to try a variety of foods from the various brands in this food hall.




It's located just one level up the departure hall (take the escalator near row 7).

This space seats 300 people in a seating and is fashioned after an airline lounge. There, you're in for a treat as you get to choose from 6 restaurant brands that also are located at Suntec's Eat at Seven, a Japanese food specialist concept restaurant.


Sora (also meaning 'Sky' in Japanese) will officially open its doors tomorrow (14 November 2017). It's also the largest restaurant across the 4 terminals in Changi Airport.

You can find these renowned Japanese brands in SORA: Tsuruhashi Fugetsu, Japoli Kitchen, Kuro Maguro, Menya Takeichi, Tendon Kohaku, Tokyo Sundubu and SORA Bar. 


If you need a drink or two, SORA Bar can help you with that. They also offer desserts! On the menu are desserts such as Hokkaido milk ice-cream, sake and cocktails.

Have kids? There's also an interactive kid's corner with a playground and a television screen for tired parents to catch a break!


The concept of ordering works in a similar fashion to Marche Restaurant. All you have to do is to get a number tag at the counter when you arrive, choose your seats, then go order with the number tag! When you're done with your meal and ready to checkout, you just have to pay up after they tally the order on your number tags.

Modelled after airline lounges, SORA Gourmet Hall has both booth seating as well as the traditional Japanese tatami seating options, where diners can chose to take off their shoes before dining. The seating options also come with awesome features where you can charge your mobile devices.

We got to try some of their food and left with a happy bellies!

Menya Takeichi, Tokyo's top chicken ramen chain, features collagen-rich chicken peitan broth. Ramen dishes are available from $13.90 onwards.


Menya Takeichi's Special Shoyu Ramen - Rich Soup version ($17.20), one of my favourites for the night! Totally in love with the thick broth!


Tsuruhashi Fugestu, a renowned okonomiyaki chain from Osaka is here too! Dishes from $13 onwards, featuring savoury pancakes made with fresh cabbage, yakisoba (fried noodles) and an assortment of meat and seafood.


Tsuruhashi Fugetsu's Mix Modan ($21) and Mix Yakisoba ($19).




Kuro Maguro, started by well-known Japanese fish wholesalers, serves up meshi (rice dishes) with seafood and torobutsu (tuna) air flown daily from Japan! Prices start from $18.


Kuro Maguro's Toro Butsu Meshi ($29.80) is totally worth it. The tuna bites are just melts in your mouth as you savor it with wasabi and rice. Lovin' it totally!


Japoli Kitchen offers Italian dishes infused with Japanese touches. Prices start from $10.80.


Japoli Kitchen's Bolognese Pasta ($14) and Mentaiko Pizza ($15). I loved the light, cheesy and flavourful Mentaiko pizza, which is made using pizza dough specially imported from Japan. 




Tokyo Sundubu has seen long snaking queues at Eat at Seven. This is Japan's largest restaurant chain serving up hearty korean stews. Prices start from $15.


Tokyo Sundubu's Health and Beauty Sundubu ($19.30)



Tendon Kohaku specialises in Edomae-style tendon, featuring Hokkaido rice with crisp tempura drizzled in special tendon sauce. Prices start from $16.60.


Tendon Kohaku's Kohaku Tendon ($17.70) was flavourful and altogether delicious! One of my favourites of the night too!



Overall, the quality of the food is worth the money you pay here, and it's one place I would definitely come back again.
