AirAsia Santan Celebrity Chef Series meal
Manila, Philippines — AirAsia wants to bring Korean cuisine to more people as it recently unveiled the new Santan Celebrity Chef series meal.
The airline has added Chef Hong’s Korean Sweet & Spicy Chicken to its inflight menu in a bid to offer “a delectable dining experience” for its passengers to enjoy while on the flight.
When it comes to the meal’s features, it comes with juicy chicken bites. These are glazed in sweet, spicy, and sticky Korean sauce. On top of that, it features crispy fritters. Known for its traditional moniker Dakgangjeong, this Korean Sweet & Spicy Chicken meal also comes with vegetables and fluffy jasmine rice.
This is a part of the airline’s collaboration with famed restaurateur and Korean TV personality, Chef Hong Seok-Cheon.
“This is a dish I enjoyed growing up and even throughout all my TV shoots,” said Chef Hong. “I’m thrilled to be collaborating with AirAsia on this exciting project to bring Korean cuisine to more people.”
He went on to say that this special AirAsia’s inflight dish is his childhood much-loved, comfort food.
But, of course, he has incorporated his own signature twist for the said inflight menu, offering passengers one-of-a-kind experience and giving them the chance to enjoy Korean heritage and culture even further.
Meanwhile, Karlo Sanchez, AirAsia Philippines Head of Ancillary, said that Korean cuisine is gaining traction among guests. This is the reason why the firm has decided to bring in the talent of the well-renowned chef from Korea along with “the best of Korean food to the skies.”
“Showcasing the flavors of the region at exceptional value-for-money has always been an integral part of our service offering,” said Sanchez.
