MALAYSIA:

AirAsia’s famous inflight meals and other ASEAN delights are now available at Santan Restaurant and T&CO Cafe – the airline’s first fast food joint in the ASEAN region – at Mid Valley Megamall here.

The restaurant and cafe opened its doors to the public on Tuesday (Dec 3), offering meals from AirAsia’s inflight menu brand Santan and T&CO, with its popular rice and noodles meals, priced at only RM12.

Besides Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak and Uncle Chin’s Chicken Rice, Asian inspired dishes such as Cambodia’s Pineapple Fish Noodle and Chicken Inasal with Garlic Rice from the Philippines, are also available.

The restaurant and cafe also offers Asean-sourced coffee and tea, snacks and desserts, inspired by local flavors such as the Nasi Lemak Quinoa Wrap and Onde-Onde Cake.

Customers can order ahead online from the comfort of their own homes at santan.com.my or the T&CO mobile app before collecting their orders at the outlet.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, who launched the outlet, expressed confidence in AirAsia’s latest initiative and praised its adoption of technology to maximize customer satisfaction.

“I was interested in the fact that the restaurant and cafe has leveraged on IT, allowing orders to be made in advance so that customers can spend more time enjoying the food than waiting for it to arrive,” he said in his speech on Monday (Dec 2).

Santan Restaurant and T&CO Cafe general manager Catherine Goh said their aim was to have five restaurants by the end of 2020 and 100 franchise-operated restaurants and cafes within the next three to five years with expansions in global markets.

“We have seen a significant appetite for our inflight menu, offerings beyond our flights across the region and this is our answer to that demand."
