AirAsia launches a burger that can help save lives. The InspiRED Burger features a mouthwatering chicken patty infused with fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass, topped with zesty green chili mayonnaise, shredded purple cabbage and tomato on a red beetroot bun. It’s the best burger I’ve eaten while up in the air!
The InspiRED burger was a creation of New York-based chef ambassador Hong Thaimee who wanted to combine the best of both worlds with Thai flavors in an all-American classic. The result? An east-meets-west burger that delivers a satisfying spicy punch!
For every inspiRED burger, 10% of the purchase price goes to a fund to support the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Besides the burger, you’ll also love the award-winning Santan inflight menu. Here’s a look at what else we loved…
(RED) was founded in 2006 to engage businesses and people in the fight against AIDS. (RED) partners with the world’s most iconic brands that contribute proceeds from (RED)-branded goods and services to the Global Fund.
To date, (RED) has generated more than $600 million for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, to support HIV/AIDS grants in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia. The money goes to work on the ground—no overhead is taken. Global Fund grants that (RED) supports have impacted over 140 million people with prevention, treatment, counseling, HIV testing and care services
This is a definite must try for spicy food lovers. Not only is the burger delicious, it also helps spread AIDS awareness to help fight and raise critical funds to finance the HIV/AIDs program in ASEAN member nations. Pre-book the inspiRED burger and get a complimentary drink at a promotional price of Php 140. (Onboard price: P150 ala carte)
The award-winning Santan menu is a tribute to serve the best ASEAN meals using core ingredients, promoting sustainable farm-to-table dining experience in the sky.
Air Asia Philippines is also returning favorite Filipino classics such as the Adobo Espesyal, chicken cooked in a blend of soy sauce, vinegar and black pepper.
My favorite in the Filipino menu is the marinated beef tapa and scrambled egg served with garlic rice, the perfect meal for a morning flight.
For the regular menu, order the Salisbury steak—a juicy beef patty served with creamy mushroom gravy over soft white rice. A must-order! (Onboard price: P150 ala carte)
Sushi on a plane? Yes, please! This bite-size Japanese treat consists of an assortment of bbq salmon onigirazu, inari sushi, California crab sushi roll and tamago sushi roll. (Onboard price: P150 ala carte)
For a yummy light savory snack, order the beef & cheese quesadilla stuffed with molten cheese goodness. (Onboard price: P120 ala carte)
End your meal with something sweet. I recommend the Cinnamon Roll that tastes like the Cinnabon version…
…Or the Ube Cheesecake, a well-loved Filipino classic.
Who knew you could get restaurant-quality meals while flying! Santan meals are also available for pre-booking via My Bookings on AirAsia.com. (Tip: Pre-book your meals and get cheaper prices.)
