The chicken in the satay was rigid and prone to breaking apart, resulting in a lacklustre texture.
A netizen on Facebook has shared his recent experience with the iconic chicken and beef satay served on Malaysia Airlines flights.
This renowned dish has won numerous global accolades, making it a signature and beloved image associated with the national carrier.
However, after recent incidents involving the in-flight meal service on Malaysia Airlines, the netizen experienced disappointment with the satay during his flight.
Upon hearing the options from the flight attendant, he immediately chose the satay without hesitation.
Unfortunately, this time, the satay failed to live up to expectations in various aspects, particularly the softness of the meat and the consistency of the accompanying compressed rice (nasi impit).
The chicken was rigid and prone to breaking apart, while the rice was crumbly.
To add to the disappointment, the peanut sauce lacked its usual flavour and richness.
The Malaysia Airlines satay has gained fame due to its traditional recipe, flavorful taste, and association with Malaysian cuisine.
The satay’s popularity can be attributed to its flavorful marinade, tender meat, and the rich and aromatic peanut sauce that complements it well.
It remains a popular choice among passengers travelling on Malaysia Airlines flights.
The satay is served in both Business and First Class on Malaysia Airlines flights.
