Joy Luck Teahouse Adds Chicken Char Siu Pineapple Bun and Chicken Pie to Its Line-up of Authentic Hong Kong Snacks from 15 October 2021
Buy 3 & Get 1 Free (exclusive for the new items, limited to 1st 88 customers each day) from 15-17 October at all eight Joy Luck Teahouse outlets.
Fans of Joy Luck Teahouse can look forward to two new menu mainstays this month: Chicken Char Siu Pineapple Bun and Chicken Pie. The Hong Kong favourites will be available from 15 October 2021 onwards, only in stores at all eight Joy Luck Teahouse branches.
The Chicken Char Siu Pineapple Bun (菠萝鸡肉叉烧包) (S$3.20) hits the perfect balance of savoury and sweet. Think soft, fluffy bread with a crumbly golden crust made following the time-honoured recipe by Hong Kong’s esteemed Kam Kee Café, that is stuffed with caramelised char siu. The char siu is made with tender chicken chunks — the whole bun does not contain any pork or lard.
Also known as Gai Pie (鸡批), the Chicken Pie (S$3.20) is a staple in most pastry shops in Hong Kong. The chicken pie was originally a creation from the United Kingdom — Hong Kongers have since adapted it to their taste preferences. Joy Luck’s rendition boasts chunks of chicken, diced carrots, peas, corn and potato. The creamy bechamel sauce brings all the ingredients together. The crust is crumbly, buttery and slightly sweet, with a melt-in-the-mouth texture. The top of the crust has a crisscross diamond pattern, which is customarily imprinted on chicken pies in Hong Kong.
From 15 to 17 October, buy 3 (Char Siu Pineapple Bun or Chicken Pie) and get 1 free! Limited to 1 redemption each for the first 88 customers at each outlet per day.
