With the Chinese New Year spirit fuelling the start of February, it is only apt that pineapple becomes the star ingredient for 3 of Jamaica Blue’s dishes. The Chinese word for ‘pineapple’ is close to the sound of “good luck coming your way” in Hokkien and has become a symbol of wealth, fortune, and prosperity.
That is why Jamaica Blue Fine Coffees, our food division, is featuring 3 creative pineapple dishes from 1 February to 31 March. They are:
1. Pineapple Fruit Bowl – RM18.90 – pineapple and honey-flavoured yoghurt, Brookfarm macadamia muesli, dried fruits, coconut flakes & blueberries
2. Pina Colada Pie Jar – RM15.00 – pina colada-flavoured cream cheese, pineapple, coconut, crumbled shortbread biscuits, pineapple skewer served in a glass
3. Pulled Chicken & Pineapple Slaw Roti – RM15.00 - grilled roti bread with jerk BBQ pulled chicken, aioli, pineapple, coriander & crispy cabbage slaw served with grilled pineapple skewers
“We’re constantly looking at ways to excite our consumers through our menu offerings,” said Mr Teo Tien Su, COO of Jamaica Blue Fine Coffees Malaysia. “Actually a total of 5 pineapple dishes were created by Jamaica Blue headquarters in Australia and we selected the most attractive ones to offer here.
During this same period, Jamaica Blue is also having a CNY Spend & Win contest. Winners can look forward to a Fitbit Versa Smart Watch, a compact De Longhi Coffee Grinder and RM50 Jamaica Blue vouchers.
