Im not particular about inflight meals usually as I would normally doze off by the time the plane takes off. In addition, most planes do not offer quality vegetarian options most of the time. The only airline that has won me over is Singapore Airlines. Nonetheless, due to the fact that Im always travelling on budget, there isnt any food provided on budget flights unless you have specially requested for it.
During my recent trip to Bali, I've noted that there are quite a number of vegetarian options on air asia, which made me want to try them out. Hence on my flight back, I tried one of the meals offered.

Vegetarian Fried Rice with satay $5 (RM 9)The fried rice tasted normal, but a little spicy and oily. Comprises of capicums, mushrooms and chili. As for the Satay, it was quite well marinated and pan-fried. Aint too bad in my opinion, as the chicken is the usual "盐酥鸡" that we can find at most veg stalls. It is then marinated with curry powder and spicies. I personally liked this satay, except they do not have any satay sauce to go with.
Price wise, a little on the high side, if you compare with tze char places, but could at least curb your hunger pangs for a while. Anyway, the point to note would be that if your flight is delayed, do request for the food early as they would usually run out.
