AirAsia launches direct flight to Lanzhou, China from Kuala Lumpur effective from 1 May 2019. In line with this, AirAsia and Al Amber Chinese Muslim Restaurant hosted members of the media to an authentic mouthwatering gastronomic experience unique to the region. Lanzhou hand-pulled noodles, or lamian, as well as many other local favourite dishes, were prepared by the restaurant’s Lanzhou native chefs to help promote the many key tourism draw-cards offered in the capital city of Gansu province, China. 

Our sumptous spread includes Special Chinese Roasted Bun loaded with veggies, sesame mochi ball(red bean),  aromatic Toothpick Lamb, crispy and tender Deep Fried Chicken with Chili, Braised Fish in Brown Sauce, Sizzling Tofu, perfectly crispy Griddle Cooked Potatoes Slice, flavour packed Sauteed Green Bean with Eggplant and Fried Shredded Cabbage. All the dishes were absolutely divine!

AirAsia Commercial Head for China, Jurvena Lee said “The trend of travelling for great food and culture is becoming increasingly popular. Lanzhou offers a truly unique travel experience, now made more accessible by our exclusive direct flight services and amazing low fares.”

“Besides the food and culture, there are many amazing natural attractions in and around Gansu province including Wuquan Mountain, Zhangye Geopark, Jiuquan, Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes, Crescent Spring, and Jiayuguan.”

Al Amber Chinese Muslim Restaurant Managing Director (Regional), Cui Wei @ Haji Ismail said “Just like how we connect Lanzhou and Malaysia through our flavourful lamian, AirAsia will soon connect the two with their direct flight service. We see the massive potential in Malaysia as our first international location and we are very glad that AirAsia can also see the potential of Lanzhou as a tourism and leisure destination for their guests. We are proud of this collaboration and we look forward to working together to help stimulate travel between the two key destinations in near future.”
