Being Pinoy and yet having to sample Indonesian food is quite an experience, and I have to say that the first sight of chili peppers mixed with the red flavoured rice and the spicy aroma was pretty overwhelming. Needless to say, spicy food was never the top of my Pinoy taste buds.

     Still, the tantalizing aroma beckoned, and I dug in with my spoon. Trust me when I say that the dish was surprisingly good! The shrimp paste was mildly sweet and was paired well with the salty anchovies and spicy fried rice. I would have been satisfied with just the fried rice with shrimp paste alone, but the fried egg and shrimp crackers are definitely added bonuses!

    Enjoying the great meal with an Indonesian staple drink – its famous iced tea – makes me feel like visiting the wonderful country to sample even more delicious local cuisines. All in all, it’s a simple meal packed with flavours that I would definitely eat again, and would even recommend to those who are not much into spicy food.

Weirdly, this sandwich reminds me of Italy! Perhaps it was its great presentation – extremely appealing and definitely appetising. Or perhaps it was the great use of pesto in a sandwich. Or perhaps it was the fact that it is filled with Italy’s favourite ingredient – tomatoes!  Viva Italia, viva tomato!

     One bite, and the explosive combination of roasted chicken, lettuce, sundried tomato and pesto fillings hit the spot, giving me a mouthful of aromatic herbs and undying satisfaction. The chicken was juicy and lean, whilst the sundried tomatoes add to the sandwich’s fresh tanginess. Pesto is the only way to go, finishing the sandwich off in a delightful manner.

     I will definitely recommend this sandwich to my friends who are flying with AirAsia Zest. It’s a great snack for everyone travelling on short flights during the summer season in the Philippines.

      Hi Sid! The Nasi Goreng Teri Medan is offered exclusively on our domestic flights because the number of hot meals that we can offer onboard on international flights is limited. Consider it today’s special. :) For a larger selection of meals, it’s best to prebook.

        that’s sad, my flights with QZ are mostly international.
