AirAsia Places Davao in Inflight Meal with Malagos Chocolate
As you may have seen in my social media accounts, Philippines AirAsia has introduced an addition to the Santan Combo in-flight meal—the Roasted Dalandan Chicken with Pimiento Sauce. It features Davao’s pride and an award-winning produce of Philippines, the Malagos Chocolate. The santan combo is created by Chef JP Anglo who aims to incorporate local Filipino flavour into your flight experience.
During the launch, members of the press were invited to sample the dish after the cooking demonstration of no other than the genius behind the dish, Chef JP himself.
Filipinos love sweet and smoky flavors! Infusing Malagos Chocolate to the pimiento sauce enhanced the citrus flavour from dalandan and balances the pimiento. Of course, would a Filipino celebration be complete without barbeque? It may not be one of the famous Filipino signature dish like adobo or lechon, it definitely represents the Filipino palate—its love for colourful flavors especially for sweet savory meals.
ON THE SIDE
Would the summer meal be complete without several colourful additions? The Roasted Dalandan Chicken with Pimiento Sauce is introduced in the AirAsia summer inflight catalogue together with some local social enterprise which highlights the genius of Filipinos.
