Plant-based meats are great for those who need meat alternatives for health reasons.

However, some of these meats can sometimes be heavily flavoured which defeats the purpose of having a healthier meal.

Fortunately, Asia’s leading food-tech startup Next Gen Foods developed a plant-based meat that contains no antibiotics, hormones, cholesterol or genetically modified ingredients.

The TiNDLE plant-based chicken that’s made with only nine simple ingredients offers 17g of protein per 100g too.

Kuala Lumpur foodies will be able to enjoy the innovative TiNDLE dishes by some of the top chefs in the city in 9 restaurants today.

Following successful launches in Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau and across the UAE, Next Gen Foods has brought its flagship product to some of Kuala Lumpur’s well-loved dining establishments.

I got to try it!

Plant-based meats have been a hit or miss for me. The last time I had plant-based meat, it was made out of mushrooms and it wasn’t great. I couldn’t even cut through the plant-based meat.

So when I had the opportunity to try TiNDLE’s plant-based chicken at Iketeru Hilton KL, I was curious and wary.

I was first served the TiNDLE Chicken Miso Hot Pot Set. At the first bite of the chicken ball without the miso soup, I was surprised that it tasted so good.

The texture reminded me of real chicken meat that is cooked until it’s tender. If no one told me it wasn’t real meat, I couldn’t tell the difference.

It was only when I had the TiNDLE Chicken Katsu that the real texture and flavour of the plant-based meat shone. It tasted like real chicken meat and had the texture to match too.

There’s no need to guess which dish I enjoyed more and happily gobbled up. If it was up to me, I would have it with Japanese curry too.

I also enjoyed a hearty dish of Chicken and Mushroom Dumplings. What surprised me most was the nice spice kick from the Chicken Gochujang Wrap with Sweet Potato Fries.

By that time, I was feeling quite full but I managed to get in a few bites of the chicken wrap. I was a little sad that I couldn’t finish up the whole meal so I tapau it home.

Overall, I’m pleasantly surprised by the versatility of the plant-based chicken and would recommend everyone to try a variety of dishes using TiNDLE plant-based chicken at least once.
