Experience the AirAsia wide variety of delicious inflight foods

Certainly when doing travel plans, there's a lot of destinations I want to visit, both in and out of the country but first, get into the essentials like where to stay, what to eat, what airline to choose and how I can save a lot on booking at low-cost airlines that still provide options to include meals on the airline tickets. Planning trips are very important to have peace of mind and enjoy a stress free vacation.

So last April 27, Air Asia invited Visayas and Mindanao bloggers to an exclusive foodie afternoon at Azia Suites in Cebu City. Yes, you got it right, I went to Cebu City for a food-tasting event of AirAsia's inflight foods they actually serve to passengers 35,000 ft. above ground.

“We are proud to say, we are the only domestic airline company that serves halal food. This is our way of showing we respect culture,” said Atty. Joy Caneba, AirAsia Philippines CEO."For a good flight, we need good food,” she also said. 
Best part of Air Asia foods are the Hot Meals which include Pak Nasser's Nasi Lemak, Beef Caldereta, and Uncle Chin's Chicken Rice.

Pak Nasser's NASI LEMAK
A traditional Malaysian favourite fragrant coconut rice served with Pak Nasser's special chili sambal
and tender chicken rendang, accompanied with traditional condiments of fried anchovies, crunchy
groundnuts and half of a hard-boiled egg.

Other AirAsia Inflight foods

There's also new hot meals - Korean beef steak and Honey-glazed soy chicken- available only for Korea and China Flights, at Php230 each.

Air asia serves sandwiches - Chicken Caesar Sandwich, Roasted Chicken Sandwich, and Kani Sandwich.

  • The Chicken Caesar Sandwich is savory grilled chicken breast filet with Caesar and honey mustard dressing with fresh greens. 
  • Roasted Chicken Sandwich is savory grilled chicken breast filet with Sun-dried and basil pesto sauce accompanied with fresh greens. 
  • Kani Sandwich another delicious and healthy offering on board. A delightful mixture of crab meat, and creamy mayonnaise and onions spread on whole wheat bread.

The Joy of Desserts

The dessert collection is called the Joy of Desserts in honour of the sweet tooth Atty. Joy Caneba, AirAsia Zest’s CEO, for the positive aura she exudes and advice she gives AirAsia Zest staff when they get stressed. Now that’s sweet!
