McDonald’s Hong Kong launches vegetarian OmniPork Luncheon menu!

By Jen Paolini 12 October 2020

Starting from Tuesday, 13 October (that’s tomorrow!), McDonald’s Hong Kong is serving up six new vegetarian dishes featuring OmniPork Luncheon! As part of a long-term collaboration between Green Monday and the global fast-food giant, the new OmniPork Luncheon menu will be available at 280 McDonald’s locations and 122 McCafé outlets across Hong Kong and Macau, with four items exclusive to the McDonald’s Hong Kong breakfast menu and two items featured on the all-day McCafé menu.

From the new menu, diners can look forward to vegetarian items such as the OmniPork Luncheon & scrambled egg burger, the OmniPork Luncheon & egg twisty pasta, the OmniPork Luncheon breakfast platter, the OmniPork Luncheon & egg cheesy toastie, the Omnipork Luncheon & egg mayo ciabatta, and more.

Presenting greener options for diners who follow a vegetarian diet, McDonald’s Hong Kong partnered with Green Common and OmniFoods to launch this fresh initiative, turning to the newly-released OmniPork Luncheon as an easily adaptable ingredient that Hongkongers are well familiar with. During the production process, the dishes use plant-based ingredients, as well as water, seasoning, and ingredients that do not contain meat. OmniPork Luncheon itself, a vegan product made primarily from a blend of soy, shiitake mushrooms, peas, and rice, is rich in protein and provides dietary fibre, potassium, and calcium, and is much lower in total fat content and sodium content compared to traditional canned pork luncheon meat.
