AirAsia BIG: Bangsar Goes BIG For Dine, Earn & Redeem Points

If you've spotted your friends & fellow foodies recently sharing their photos of tasty pizzas, steaks, shakes & more from their favourite restaurants in Bangsar, with the hashtags #AirAsiaBIG & #AirAsiaBIGBangsar, here's the reason why!

AirAsia BIG, AirAsia’s loyalty programme, has launched a ‘AirAsia BIG Dining Rewards’ initiative for you to earn and/or redeem your BIG Points in-store by using your mobile number for every transaction at 12 restaurants in Telawi.

The process is super-easy: Just visit any of these 12 restaurants, and tell them you’d like to earn AirAsia BIG Points when you’re paying. Enter your mobile number on the merchant tablet to link your AirAsia BIG Account (it’ll only take a few seconds). Points will be awarded into your AirAsia BIG Account 24 hours after the transaction (RM1 spend = 1 AirAsia BIG Point).

You can also redeem your AirAsia BIG Points for a selected range of menu items – or save up your points to redeem flights to over 120 destinations on AirAsia’s network!


 Social media fans can share food pictures at participating restaurants on Instagram with the hashtags #AirAsiaBIG & #AirAsiaBIGBangsar - the most drool-worthy photo each week will win 1,000 AirAsia BIG Points (contest valid from 13 January to 31 March, 2017; the winner will be announced every Sunday). 

Here are just a few of this month's IG photos so far - thanks to wackybecky, alsonccw, wee.ping, gracey4eva & shuks!

Sora @ Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya

Hojicha hounds, Sora might fit you to a 'tea' - this winsome little cafe is an unforeseen portrait of Zen in Subang's key mall, offering the likes of smooth Uji matcha cold brews gently flavoured with peach (RM10) & frothy-roasty hojicha hot lattes (RM12). If you have time to linger, traditional ceremony-style tea is also available, crafted with 'chasen' bamboo whisks & served with preserved apricots for balance (RM16). Pair perhaps with a slice of green-tea-&-sesame cake (RM15). The Japanese influence extends to the coffee, with beans from KL-based Japanese roaster Kato-san. Look for Sora's neon bird.

Brasaria @ Jaya One

Look for the colourful patchwork llama & bid 'buen provecho' to Brasaria, which tackles Peruvian-inspired pollo a la Brasa - rotisserie chicken, convincingly juicy & confidently marinated, fully flavoursome on its own but even more enjoyable with house-made condiments like the classic aji pepper green sauce. On its own, a quarter roast costs RM13.50, half is RM24.40 & a whole is RM47.70; customers can combine the chicken with sides, salads & beverages in set meals for optimum value.

Brasaria goes the distance to make the experience distinctive via South American-themed complements like yellow rice with raisins; grilled sweet potatoes, pineapples & plantain; & charred corn - even the coleslaw, mashed potatoes & beetroot salad convey a pleasant zing. The Klang Valley's roast chicken scene just got tastier, fortuitously in time for the Year of the Rooster.

Mlinica @ Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina

Battered fried calf brains come in a bit too mushy & under-cooked at Mlinica restaurant, making them very much an acquired taste, especially for the squeamish - but at least the view here is spectacular, overlooking the Ottoman bridge by the Neretva river that flows through Bosnia-Herzegovina's lovely cultural capital of Mostar.
