Tesco Meal For One; Sweet & Sour, Chinese Chicken Curry

Dec 17 2017

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]

Tesco Katsu Chicken Curry

Dec 9 2017

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.

Tesco Value Pasta in a Tomato and Onion Sauce

Aug 27 2013

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]

Tesco Spaghetti Bolognese

Jul 26 2013

The mince has liquidated into the sauce, giving the sauce a vaguely brown colour. As ever, the spaghetti is soft. Tasty, filling.

Tesco Farfalle Pasta Carbonara

May 19 2013

Very oily. Looks very unappetising- one big splodgy mess. Made some very scary noises in the microwave. Admittedly, the little cubes of unidentifiable meat are quite pleasant. But the rest of it has a peculiar taste- as if the plastic packaging has burned and the fumes have been infused into the pasta. Not a tasty… [Read More]

Tesco Value Chicken Curry with Vegetables

Mar 31 2013

Not a good curry. Very much like a chip shop curry. Barely any chicken. Doesn’t taste BAD. Nice and cheap, filling.

Tesco Finest British Roast Chicken Soup

Mar 30 2013

Reasonably tasty. Actual pieces of chicken, some of them almost an inch long! Nice, easy microwave instructions. Nice idea. More chicken then expected, and more than it first appears. Not bad!

Tesco Pasta Shells in Bolognese Sauce

Oct 24 2012

A bit sickly, small portion size, overpriced, and doesn’t look at all appetizing. However, it tastes fairly good and is a quick and easy snack. Not bad.

Tesco Chicken, Garlic & Wine Pasta

Sep 12 2012

This was a real pain to cook- need to add milk, boiling water, and optional butter. Then it needed microwaving, which led to an explosion and about 15 minutes cleaning up the mess. So much for fast food! Nice taste of parsley and fairly creamy sauce. The tiny pieces of chicken, as opposed to just… [Read More]

Tesco Real Ale Beef Stew and Dumplings

Jul 3 2012

Meaty sauce. Pleasant but nothing special. Packed with meat and potatoes- good, hearty food. The dumplings are a bit disappointing- total lack of flavour, slightly too sticky. Still, they’re adequate, and there are two of them. Nicely cooked beef.
