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]
A bit of a faff to cook – no microwave option, and assumes you know how to steam things. I don’t. Still, I improvised, and the dumplings looked amazing being slowly sweated to a warm temperature. I left it for more than the instructions said, but still found my first mouthful quite cold so had… [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]
Nice, strong, mushroomy taste. Creamy and indulgent lasagne. Plenty of tender, big pieces of chicken. Not enough cheese on top layer for my liking. At £2, this is fairly good value, though the lasagne isn’t particularly big. Knock a star off if you find it for a penny more!
When you open this tin, you’d be forgiven for being daunted by the task of eating its contents. It’s set like jelly and looks vile, and as you spoon it into a dish ready for microwaving, cutting through some overcooked penne pasta, you’ll think you’ve made a big mistake. But don’t despair! You have in… [Read More]
Okay, so it’s a bit of a cheese overload, but I was hungry and I deserved it after my exam, okay? The first thing that strikes you is the quantity of sausages- Tesco haven’t held back here, there are 7 tin-size sausages, more than other tin averages. The sausages are even softer than most tinned… [Read More]
Lovely idea, but the bowl the soup came in was making some very ominous noises in the microwave, and subsequently there was some leakage, so this wasn’t the easiest of ready meals to prepare. The bits of chicken are dry and dark brown, not very inspiring. The soup itself is passable, but has that generic… [Read More]
Absolutely VILE. The first mouthful I took was a whole meatball- and I feel robbed on the “meat” part. This “meat” is akin to hotdog meat. Absolutely horrid. The texture is softer than banana, and it’s not as if the taste makes up for it. It’s bland, with some artificial meaty smokiness somehow infused into… [Read More]
