Air Asia: Redefining Airline Food

Air Asia has been known and named as the World's Best Low-Cost Airline for eleven years in a row. And it doesn't stop at just providing pocket friendly airfares! With most of its in-flight menu priced below PHP200, it makes dining in the air more attractive. But Air Asia has another reason to convince you why you should click that add a meal button before paying for your next flight. 

Hello, Air Asia!
Air Asia welcomes the end of Summer with a new Santan menu. Aside from the usual favorites like Pak Nasser's Nasi Lemak and Uncle Chin's Chicken Rice, this well-loved airline came up with new dishes to spice things up. 
In collaboration with New York based (RED) Chef Ambassador Hong Thaimee, one eye catching addition in the menu is the INSPI(RED) Burger (PHP140, pre-booked | PHP150, on board). 
Aside from its striking red beetroot bun, this chicken burger is oozing with Asian flavors thanks to fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves, and lemongrass. It is also generously packed with zesty nam prok noom (green chili) mayonnaise for that kick of heat which will leave you wanting more. I love that there were a lot of shredded cabbage too for that addictive crunch. 
Salisbury Steak (PHP190) is a great choice for those who prefer something beefier. This CEO top choice item is also topped with creamy mushroom gravy and white rice. 
Can't wait to be back home or miss your mom's cooking? This Adobo Espesyal (PHP140, comes with tea or coffee) will make you feel right at home in your Air Asia flight. Cooked the traditional way--with soy sauce, vinegar, black pepper and other spices, this no frills dish will bring back all those fun childhood memories. The banana slices added a nice sweet taste in every mouthful. This is available for the Let's Eat Promotion from 5am to 11am and 2pm to 1am for the month of August.
I still can't believe that I can enjoy some of my favorite Japanese food while in flight! This Onigirazu and Sushi Bento (PHP150) is pretty good and bang for the buck! It's filling and you don't even need soy sauce for extra flavor as each item in the bento are tasty as is.
Cap your meal with Ube Cheesecake (PHP100) while you're at it.
And if you just want a snack to keep you from being hungry or hangry, this huge Cinnamon Roll (PHP110 | PHP150, with coffee) is a nice option. I actually thought it was from Cinnabon! 
The best part in grabbing a Santan meal is that you also get to support local farmers with Air Asia's mission of sustainability. This in turn elevates the farm to table social movement in a whole different level. Also, 10% of profits from every INSPI(RED) Burger sold will go to the Global Fund to support HIV/AIDS awareness, testing, counseling, treatment and prevention programs in the ASEAN region.  
Air Asia is definitely redefining how we fly with these dishes which one could confuse with those served in restaurants. And at pocket friendly prices, I guess I'll be enjoying my lunch or dinner with the clouds as my view.
