A restaurant selling Airline foods? It’s certainly an unusual concept, but it’s exactly what we are excited to check out with AirAsia’s Santan restaurant.
Opened in Mid Valley Megamall, the new restaurant features a menu filled with some of AirAsia’s in-flight hot sellers. They include Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak and Uncle Chin’s Chicken Rice.
According to NST, the general Manager of Santan Restaurant and T&CO Cafe, Catherine Goh, has said that 30% of the restaurant’s menu came from AirAsia’s in-flight menu. Goh also added that the rest of the menu was added by a development team of 5 chefs and culinary students in a period of 9 months.
All the dishes served at the restaurant will be ASEAN inspired, with orders that can be placed at a kiosk like the ones at McDonalds. This is part of the effort done by AirAsia to keep up and adopt technology, in order to maximise customer satisfaction.
Speaking of technology, there are also talks of opening up AirAsia’s own food delivery app, as plans of collaborating with existing companies such as GrabFood and Foodpanda are being discussed. This is to ensure that the company can keep up with the times as well as further provide a greater reach for their patrons.
In celebration of the store’s opening, Santan will be giving away some of their Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang for only RM5. However, this offer is for online orders only, with it also being one order per check out when you use the promo code “SANTANRM5” after you log in with your BIG member account.
The franchise has plans on opening 100 more of these outlets next year, with global expansion also in the works. Right now, Santan’s menu offers combo sets, rice, noodles, snacks, and drinks.
The details to Santan’s first outlet are as follows:
- Venue: F-051, First Floor, Mid Valley Megamall, Lingkaran Syed Putra, Mid Valley City, 58000 Kuala Lumpur
- Opening hours: 10am – 10pm
