Few Hong Kong cha chaan teng foods are as iconic or comforting as the delectable combination of luncheon meat and instant noodles. It’s ready in a matter of minutes and satisfies those intense salty cravings that we get from time to time.
But what if you’re looking to go vegan, or at least become more health-conscious with your food choices? Fortunately, local vegan food trailblazers OmniFoods—you might know them for OmniPork—has debuted a vegan-friendly plant-based version of luncheon meat. It also has the added benefit of being far healthier than it’s meat counterpart. The company is also launching OmniPork Strip, a plant-based version of pork shoulder.
Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Ming Court will be featuring both products, serving up a variety of higher-end Cantonese offerings. You can also find Green Monday’s Kind Kitchen using them for a more homey fare, such as Omni K-Ramen ($56) and Omni luncheon and eggless toast ($49). If you’d rather cook at home though, retail versions of both OmniPork Luncheon and OmniPork Strip will be available starting in July.
