Hong Kong is certainly not experiencing a shortage in plant-based food innovations these days. Just weeks after the launch of the vegan OmniSeafood product series, Singapore-based food tech creator Next Gen is bringing its ground-breaking plant-based chicken experience to 19 restaurants across our city and Macau. Making its debut on 24 June, Tindle purportedly “delivers the same taste, texture, and aroma of the traditional chicken you love.”
Requiring 74 percent less land and 82 percent less water to produce than traditional chicken, and outputting 88 percent less greenhouse gas emissions to boot, Tindle is made with just nine plant-based, non-GMO, and non-novel ingredients, without additional additives or “nasties.” Antibiotic- and hormone-free, Tindle contains 17 grammes of protein per 100 grammes, and no cholesterol.
Tindle is partnering with 19 different restaurants spanning multiple cuisines, making its debut across upscale establishments, casual eateries, and cafés alike. Available in dining destinations such as Uma Nota, Poem, Bo Innovation, Second Draft, Potato Head, Ninjito, Alvy’s, Big Birdy, and many more, Tindle will see itself reinvented in dishes like the smoked Tindle Sichuan taco, fried karaage, chicken Kiev, orange chicken, Tindle pineapple bun sandwich, chicken & porcini mushroom risotto—the list goes on!
If you can hardly wait to get your first taste of Tindle, you’re in luck—Tindle is celebrating its launch in Hong Kong from 5 to 7 July with a giveaway of a hundred delicious Tindle dishes each day! On Monday, 5 July, a slew of Tindle chicken sandos will be available for grabs at Doubleshot by Cupping Room in Central. Tuesday, 6 July, will see a giveaway of honey mustard Tindle chicken bagels at 404 Plant in Sheung Wan. Finally, on Wednesday, 7 July, Big Birdy in Wan Chai will be dishing out Tindle chicken burgers starting from 1 pm.
