Focus Malaysia 30 Jan 2019 12:33
With the coming of the Chinese New Year, it is only apt that pineapple becomes the star ingredient as 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 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

The cuisine at Jamaica Blue Fine Coffees is focussed on promoting healthy eating with many interesting twists, incorporating a blend of Western with Mediterranean ingredients, Arabic ingredients, Asian ingredients and so on. Australia has become a melting pot of cultures and Jamaica Blue food reflects this.

“We’re constantly looking at ways to excite our consumers through our menu offerings,” said Mr TeoTien 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.

The R&D Food Team in Australia creates a new menu twice a year to keep it interesting for ever- discerning and evolving clients. Some of the items are suited to the Malaysian palate with locally- inspired recipes.

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.

Jamaica Blue Fine Coffee outlets are located at Mid Valley Megamall, Melawati Mall and The Robertson in Kuala Lumpur; Setia City Mall in Shah Alam, Seremban Gateway in Seremban, Eco Avenue in Muar and City One Megamall, Kuching. Jamaica Blue Fine Coffee Malaysia also offers a very financially attractive Franchising Programme to those who are interested in opening and operating their own Jamaica Blue café.
