The centerpiece of almost every celebration, food plays a vital role in Asian culture. As Cebu Pacific works to make each flight a celebration in itself, it’s come up with a new selection of inflight meals that’s guaranteed to make a gastronomic experience out of each sector.

Asian cuisine

Since April, CEB guests have been able to enjoy hot and fresh dishes prepared by MacroAsia SATS Food Industries, the airline’s new culinary partner. The new menu, with vegetarian options, presents an array of snacks and meals that include Chinese, Japanese and Korean delights. Each meal is offered at a standard price of 250.

“Our earlier menu celebrated Filipino classics and we thought it time to highlight cuisines from the other countries we travel to. We listened to our customers and revamped the menu with their preferences in mind,” says JB Bueno, director for inflight catering and sales at Cebu Pacific. “Passengers in and out of the Philippines fly with CEB and we hope that with these new dishes, we’ll be able to give them even more memorable experiences,” he adds.

Beef Bulgogi

The new menu includes beef bulgogi, a Korean dish that’s well-loved by Filipinos for its sweet and savory flavors. There are also two chicken options, and both come with a twist — one has sweet chili sauce, while the other features a Japanese sauce and egg. Those looking for Chinese fare may enjoy the classic fried rice with dumplings, served with a side of vegetables.

The fish steak is an ideal option for pescetarians — boneless milkfish is covered in a tangy sauce, seasoned with Philippine lime and onions and served with yellow rice. Vegetarians, on the other hand, can enjoy CEB’s own version of tofu and rice biryani.

Kung Pao Chicken Noodles

The kung pao chicken noodles is another Chinese classic — with chicken spiced just right on a bed of egg noodles — while the Korean-style stir-fried noodles involves comforting rice noodles and fresh vegetables tossed in a sweet sauce.

Japanese Chicken Mayo Sandwich

For quick bites, there’s the Japanese chicken mayo sandwich, a triple-decker sandwich with distinctly flavored coleslaw on black bread; and the seafood quiche, an egg tart baked perfectly with a crispy outer crust and bits of crab meat
and egg.
