Tell us if we’re wrong, but we think that us, millennials, have been struggling to go on a healthy diet yet the effort we give is very minimal. Why? So many good foods! We’d say that we’d spent more money on gym subscriptions than give up those oh-so-good burgers, chicken nuggets, and pizza. Good thing Quorn boosted their efforts in promoting their products as a meat substitute without compromising the taste.
For a quick overview, Quorn (sorry guys, this is not from the word ‘corn’ – it’s actually a village in England) started with a man’s vision to solve the unseen problem of the food industry – Sustainability. The man discovered a microorganism and through several processes, developed mycoprotein which is the main ingredient for all Quorn products. This ingredient is very high in protein, low in saturated fat, good fiber content, and most especially, no cholesterol. Seriously, this is where we thank the brains and heart of people who wanted to do good, and let’s not forget how technology really helped in this revolution.
Quorn partnered with several restaurants to use Quorn products to come up with additions to their menu designed for the vegetarian and vegan community. The result: remarkable dishes we’d never have guessed it wasn’t meat! Check out some restaurants located at Kapitolyo, Pasig that offer meat-free specialties, all powered by Quorn.
UCC Clockwork is another reason to wake up early in the morning. Their Kapitolyo branch is very sleek and has the coziest and private ambiance for a coffee shop. We have discovered these two dishes – the Vegetarian Sausage Breakfast (P328) and the Vegetarian Hamburg Omelet (P398), perfect for our usual Sumiyaki coffee. >>Check out our full review here.
You know when a restaurant that offers a certain international cuisine is good when you can see a lot of their locals in it. Take Warung for example. Once we came in, we felt we were the foreigners here as the place is packed with Indonesian nationals. Their menu has a lot of dishes to choose from, and healthier options are very much available. We’ve tried their Gulai Quorn and Tahu (P375), Kari Quorn (P375), Quorn Bakmi Goreng (P195), Quorn Nasi Goreng (P185), Quorn Rendang (P395), Quorn Martabak Telur (P450), and Sate Quorn (P250). >>Check out our full review here.
Banh Mi Kitchen
We’ve been to Vietnam and we must say, Banh Mi Kitchen‘s The Classic is the closest to the authentic one. We’ve been ordering the same sandwich for so long. Now, we have a new alternative, their premium creation, the Vegan Bahn Meal (P299). >>Check out our full review here.
If you are already tired of having Shakey’s Special Pizza over and over, or finding their Texas Chicken BBQ too bold for a quick snack, then their Cheesy Chik’n Quorn (P371) is the best option. Trust us, you’ll won’t even notice that there aren’t any chicken meats in there. Craving for chicken nuggets sans the guilt? Shakey’s Hickory Quorn Pops (P185) are the ones for munching. >>Check out our full review here.
Some of you might raise an eyebrow for this discovery but for us, it’s actually fascinating. Quorn doesn’t feel any less than what we are actually having. Instead, it gives more and cares more. It can transform how people eat, not just focusing on eliminating the meat but endorsing healthy and clean eating as well. Most importantly, changing the world, one sustainable and delicious meal at a time.
