With the rise of the conscious consumer and the meatless movement gaining ground in Singapore, Quorn®, the world-renowned brand that commits to making tasty food that is both nutritious and sustainable, has collaborated with Japanese bento stalwart, Ichiban Bento, to unveil four delicious meat-free interpretations of Japanese classics.
Packed with nutritious ingredients, the four new meat-free options – Tsukune (meatball) Bento, Katsu Curry Bento, Nuggets with Yuzukosho Dip and Chawanmushi – creatively incorporate various popular Quorn® products and are thoughtfully prepared by Ichiban Bento’s chefs for busy professionals on-the-go.
We got to try out 2 of the meat-free bentos and it was definitely a mind-blowing meal as you can hardly differentiate the difference between what’s real and what’s not. Not only it’s delicious and tasty, it’s also hearty and nutritious too!
The Tsukune Bento features juicy Quorn® meatballs grilled Japanese-style to perfection, served with a special in-house yakitori sauce. The Katsu Curry Bento, a signature Japanese delight amongst families and friends, packs high fibre, protein and is served with panko-breaded Quorn® fillet in flavourful Japanese curry. Both bentos come with tender Quorn® nuggets, potato salad and rice.
Quorn® nuggets can be purchased ala carte, where they’ll be served with a citrusy and peppery Yuzukosho dip, made lovingly in-house by Ichiban Bento. Bento fans looking to complete their meal can also do so with the meat-free Chawanmushi, featuring tasty Quorn® mince, and a choice of drink for sharing with loved ones.
Starting today, all bento sets will be available until 22nd July at all 10 Ichiban Bento outlets in Singapore.
