Airplane meals unfortunately have the reputation of being disgustingly bland.

However, by some magic (or the Malaysian food obsession), AirAsia’s in-flight meals have always been SO.GOOD.

With its perfectly balanced chilli sambal and flavourful chicken rendang, the low-cost carrier’s ‘Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak’ is a firm favourite on any Malaysian’s list of top 10 nasi lemaks.

Naturally, it’s no surprise that everyone essentially lost their heads when AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes mentioned that they were planning to open a fast food restaurant during a February 2019 interview with US talk show host Larry King.

Tony also mentioned that the upcoming restaurant will be called Santan and serve up their crazy popular in-flight meals. (THAT MEANS PAK NASSER’S NASI LEMAK!)

He remained mum on further details, but yesterday Tony spilt more tea to his 1.3 million Twitter followers.

Air Asia is opening their first Santan restaurant this December in Mid Valley Megamall!

While no further details on the menu has been confirmed, past evidence has shown that AirAsia certainly knows how to serve up a scrumptious meal.

When the Santan in-flight menu concept was launched in 2015, it was with the goal to provide passengers with a gourmet experience while flying.

Tony himself proudly proclaimed, “our food is as good as restaurant food!”
