If there’s one thing that unites all Malaysians together, it is our love for food. Malaysian food is famous worldwide for its unique combination of flavours that are derived from the different cultures present in the country.
Each state in the country has foods that they are famous for, with an authentic taste that can only be found in that state and can not be replicated.
For instance, Penang is famous for their nasi kandar, rojak and more. It is common to see Malaysians travelling to other states for the sole purpose of enjoying that state’s delicacy, and one of the most visited states for food seems to be Penang.
However, it seems, this may no longer be required. AirAsia has introduced a new inter-city food delivery option. The option is currently only available in select areas of Klang Valley, and allows users to get food delivered to them from Penang. Whilst this seems like an idea out of a fictional futuristic movie or novel, it’s not, you can actually get food delivered to your doorstep from another state!
Now we know the question you’re all thinking, because we all had the same one – how expensive is this inter-city food delivery? Surprisingly, it costs around the same as normal food delivery at only RM5.99. This is even lower than some of our current food delivery service charges.
So what’s the catch? Well, for now, there is only a specific slot during which you can order your food to be delivered to you, which is on Wednesdays between 5-5.30pm. Additionally, orders close one day before the scheduled delivery day at 5pm, meaning that you need to order at least one full day in advance. You can even schedule a delivery for as far as 30 days before the delivery date.
Currently, as this is still a newly introduced option, there are many limitations and there is a smaller variety of restaurant options but we are hoping to see this expand to cover more areas and include foods from other states as well.
