OLDTOWN White Coffee Malaysia has a special plant-based treat for Chinese New Year. In collaboration with Phuture Foods, the coffee shop chain has introduced Plant-based Chick’n Popcorn Bites under the Treasure Bites series. The new seasonal menu items also include Pineapple Coconut Frappe and Signature Treasure Chest Toast.
Chinese New Year is the time to introduce plant-based offerings. Chinese people have the practice of eating vegetarian food on the first day of Chinese New Year and on the 15th. This practice originates from the Buddhist tradition that believes vegetables purify and cleanse the body and soul.
