‘Meat’ Quorn™, a healthy sustainable source of protein that may well make the thought of eating meat a distant memory.
Driven by the need to stay healthier and eat healthier, consumers are increasingly looking for more diverse, healthy gluten-free and meat-free options. F&B players could play a significant role in determining the consumers’ decision.
Quorn™, which originated from the UK was introduced to the Singapore market in September 2017 and there has been a growing demand for the meat-free production. Convenience and the ease of purchase will continue to be key for consumers who wants to switch things up on the food front as the Quorn™ products are easily available via online RedMart and Amazon Prime Now, and including major supermarkets like Cold Storage, Market Place, Sheng Shiong and FairPrice outlets.
Quorn™ has increased their efforts to promote better eating through a timeline of campaigns. The most recent campaign sees the company featuring six brand advocates and kicking off a tasty collaboration with Arbite, a popular brunch venue in the neighbourhood of Serangoon Gardens.
Arbite is a great dining spot better than it used to be — I refer, of course to the range of newly created meat free dishes featuring Quorn™ that are available for lunch and dinner daily except the rest day on Wednesday.
Whether you are following a vegetarian diet or just want to enjoy a guilt free meal, you can get to taste some seriously delicious food minus the meat.
Quorn™ x Arbite
Pop Quorn™ $7 per cup (approx. 12 to 15 pieces)
A satisfying starter that everybody will love — a Korean inspired snack made of Quorn™ Meat Free Pieces, firstly coated in tempura batter and deep-fried to perfection, then coated with honey-butter-marmite sauce before garnished with black and white sesame seeds.
Quorn™ Burger $14
If you are a burger fan, the Quorn™ Burger will put a smile on your face . Instead of serving the classic beef burger, the burger patty is made of Quorn™ ingredients, grilled and given a Korean makeover with homemade gochujiang sauce, sandwiched between homemade brioche buns spread with mayonnaise, then topped with onion ring tempura, and served with fries.
Hainanese Fillet Rice Bowl $12
Chicken rice without the meat can taste just as good, as proven by the Hainanese Fillet Rice Bowl. This Singaporean favourite is made using Quorn™ Fillets that are sous vide for three hours with pandan leaves and garlic for superb flavour and texture.
Calrose rice is cooked in vegetable stock and lemongrass, accompanied with charred broccoli and corn kernels. Have a go at the homemade chilli sauce, it is also vegetarian friendly.
Rendang Mac and Cheese $14
Swap the meat for luscious Quorn™ Swedish Style Balls in Arbite’s signature Beef Rendang Mac and Cheese made with the same recipe, topped with a mix of cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, and delicious crumbled coconut topping.
This gorgeous recipe uses orecchiette pasta and packs in the ‘meaty’ locally farmed king oyster mushrooms for added bite and a lovely source of iron. Homemade pickled watermelon rind is served on the side.
Quorn™ Benedict $12
Turn the classic ‘Eggs Benny’ brunch dish into a healthy meat free option with this Quorn™ Benedict rendition which comes with two crumbed Quorn™ fillets, poached eggs, oyster mushrooms, creamed spinach, and fresh greens topped with a melted mix of three cheeses, cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella, complete with homemade gochujiang hollandaise sauce.
The good news is that Arbite still offers a number of starters, mains and brunch items for the meat-based diet. However, these little changes of going meat-free for a day or more is a good start and can be beneficial.
With every order of Quorn™ creations on Mondays lunch and dinner, customers can enjoy the second meat-free order FREE. Choose good and make a change today!
