Airline dishes divide opinions because while there are people who hate the food served on flights, there are others who are not only used to eating it but really like it.
There are people who need to travel a lot, do not have time to stop at a good restaurant to eat, and already enjoy what they can feed them on planes. Especially for those who enjoy dishes on airlines, there is a place in Malaysia that offers them that kind of food without having to take off.
The Santan restaurant – which means “coconut milk” in Malay – opened its doors to offer a menu consisting of the dishes they serve on the AirAsia airline. Here they will always give you first class service.
Here people can eat dishes like satay kebabs, beef, Chinese-Malay-style chicken rice, Philippine chicken, Vietnamese noodle soup, and various kinds of drinks. This menu was created by five professional chefs.
Santan is located at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia, and manager Catherine Goh believes it has the potential to become a restaurant chain at other airports around the world.
We are very proud to extend what started as an in-flight menu to new markets and reiterate our support for local and (Southeast Asian) producers and suppliers, as well as creating new job opportunities with affordable franchises.
While airplane food is the last option for some, in this restaurant, they plan to make it their specialty, and only time will tell if it was a good idea or not. At least there will be no turbulence that will throw food on the ground, nor will you have to be very close to someone while eating.
