Impossible Burger Makes International Debut in Hong Kong
Starting tomorrow, Hong Kong will be the first place outside the United States to serve the vegan Impossible Burger. The award-winning plant-based burger by Impossible Foods will be offered at three of the city’s highly acclaimed restaurants: Little Bao, Happy Paradise, and Beef & Liberty.
Both Little Bao and Happy Paradise are owned and operated by Chef May Chow, a highly-respected culinarian who was named Asia’s Best Female Chef in 2017 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards. For her restaurants Little Bao and Happy Paradise, Chef Chow has developed recipes that showcase the true versatility of the Impossible Burger. “We’re experimenting with new ingredients in the kitchen. Stay tuned for more!” she teased yesterday in a Facebook post.
Little Bao will serve the Impossible Bao, a contemporary, vegan take on the classic Cantonese street food. Chef Chow’s bao will be in sandwich form, consisting of a savory filling of Impossible meat tossed with black pepper teriyaki sauce, salted lemon kombu salad, and fermented tofu sauce, served between two house-made steamed buns. At Happy Paradise, Chow and her team will offer guests the Impossible XinJiang Hot Pocket, which will be served with pickled daikon and XinJiang spices.
