You know what KFC is without the chicken? Just KF. …. Okay lame. In all seriousness, woke up today and KFC’s icon on Facebook had turned green. Malaysians being Malaysians, there were many ‘mak kau hijau’ and ‘bila masa KFC dah join PAS ni?’ jokes. But it’s actually in conjunction with the launch of KFC’s new Zero Chicken Burger, a ‘chicken’ burger that – you … Continue reading KFC Malaysia Released A “Zero Chicken Burger” – But It’s Not Vegan / Vegetarian-Friendly
A couple of years ago, hipsters in the West sang praises about the “Impossible Burger” – a burger with meat patties made from plant-based ingredients.

When I lived outside in my college years, I sustained myself on a diet of potato chips, baked chipolatas and bacon from Tesco (they were super cheap in the UK, where I used to study). The only … Continue reading Review: VLite Cafe, Bandar Puteri – Healthy + Tasty Vegetarian Food in Puchong !
