Very creamy and decadent. For me, the spinach is a little too long and stringy and would have benefited from being blended first. There is too much emphasis on the cream and not enough on the cheese- I like a flavoursome, browned cheese on the top; this cannelloni didn’t deliver. *Review from May 2013

Like its double-stacked brethren, this is quick, easy, tasty, good value. And unlike the double stack “cheeseburger”, this one’s separated it out as “cheese burger”. Make up your minds, Feasters! OCD aside, I can’t really fault these burgers. I’d happily have them again and again. For a 5* review, they’d have to be positively gourmet…. [Read More]
I was impressed when I picked this out for £2 at my local Tesco. It felt big and heavy. I actually had to read the packaging to confirm that yes, it is a meal for one, and I could legitimately pig out on this without any feelings of guilt or remorse. When I got it… [Read More]
Looks kind of off-putting when you take it out of the packaging. All sweaty, like. But I guess hot dogs are universally disgusting anyway. Smells good when it’s cooked. Ketchup & mustard are both provided. The bun comes out all chewy, making this difficult to eat without making a mess or screaming that the roof… [Read More]
Deliciously crispy chicken coating, with moist chicken breast. Jasmine rice is the perfect level of stickiness and complements the meal well. A good katsu curry. The downside is that the chicken has to be cooked in the oven for twenty minutes. Bit of a faff.

At first sight, this looks promising, and looks as though it really could be the fish and chip shop experience from the comfort of one’s own home. In anticipation I sprinkled salt, added vinegar and squirted ketchup to accompany what was, I hope, going to be a nice meal. The mushy peas are pretty good,… [Read More]
At 89p, very cheap. Impressive what you can get! The sausages have a nice Cumberland flavour, though are gritty in places. They’re quite generously sized, given the cost of the meal. The potato is surprisingly buttery and creamy, though the appearance and texture is very manufactured. What lets the meal down is, surprisingly, the onion… [Read More]
Tasty, succulent beef, although the pieces are meagre in size and there aren’t many of them. I also found myself chewing on a huge piece of gristle, which wasn’t a nice surprise. The carrots and crisp enough and sweet, very nice. I found the dumplings to be quite inconsistent – soggy to the point of… [Read More]
The bread is soft, soggy and chewy, and my first bite split the sub in two, making a very difficult and messy snack. The meatballs are far too soft and instantly instil distrust as to their contents. They taste pleasant enough and have the flavour of a bolognese mince, but where’s the texture?! The sauce… [Read More]
Too salty. Unpleasant, overly dark flavour. Lots of potato, so quite filling, but ultimately skimping on the meat and veg.

Potato doesn’t brown like the picture suggests. The bacon pieces are few and far between, and when you actually fork a piece, turn out to have a spammy taste. The potato is bland and uninteresting, given little flavour by the butter that smothers it. Filling, but not fabulous value for money. As already mentioned, bacon… [Read More]
Word of warning- takes an age to cook! I wanted a quick meal before my lecture, but this requires 15 minutes in the microwave- I had to return to it afterwards. Decent portion size, but the tomato sauce is a bit sweet, sickly, and bland. This tastes just like plain pasta with a little bit… [Read More]
I couldn’t help licking my fingers after opening the sachet of “heavenly broth paste”, confidently named by the people at itsu. It tasted promising- a strong Thai lemongrass with a chilli kick. Unfortunately, I followed the instructions to the letter, adding boiling water to the suggested fill level. The result is a watery, bland mess…. [Read More]
The mince has liquidated into the sauce, giving the sauce a vaguely brown colour. As ever, the spaghetti is soft. Tasty, filling.
A bit sour. Nice, quick, easy curry, but it’s not a good one. Would be very disappointed in a restaurant. Ultimately a bit flavourless. Still, it’s better than no korma at all, and it’s only £1. I’d have it again, but I’m not blown away.
