Wai Wai Beef Casserole Noodles

Look at the pictures – that steak was delicious, but I take full credit for that. Noodles were a little overcooked but that’s because I was preoccupied with the steak. This ended up being a really full-flavoured beef broth. But it’s incredibly difficult to review something that takes second stage to that gorgeous steak. All I… [Read More]

Feasters Premium Double Sausage Breakfast Bap with Cheese & Tomato Ketchup

This is an artery clogging feast. Pleasant sausage flavour, a bit softer than the McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin and less meaty, but still good. They’re big too. Frankly it would have been fine with 1 sausage, not 2. Ketchup cuts through the fat nicely. Zero nutritional benefit, but quick, filling, tasty junk food.

Tasty, good chunks of beef, nice crunch on the potatoes, polenta makes the gravy nice and thick. Generous portion for one. Only has an oven cook option, and definitely not healthy, but good comfort food. A slow-cook, indulgent treat.

Bought this, reduced, and spontaneously, when I already had far too much in my shopping basket. Never go to ASDA when you’re hungry and you’ve just been paid. This would be a decent main course on its own, but I thought I’d have it as a side dish with my lasagne & salad. In a… [Read More]

You know when you see something on a shelf and you… just don’t know what it is? Most people just keep on walking. Not I. I pick up the packet and shove it in the trolley. Ready Steady Cook! So I have no idea what złoty or łagodna means, but the picture looks fairly innocuous… [Read More]

Kingston Town Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas

Two whole chicken thighs – that’s impressive for a ready meal! The rice is very saucey, but it’s not overly tomatoey. It actually stops the meal from being too dry. Kinda salty, but tastes great. A bit pricey but good quality.£3.80 RRP. Around the £3.20 mark would be better.

Lots of packaging. Fork provided, so no washing up. Strong kick of chili – really quite spicy actually! Moderate lemongrass flavour. Enjoyed that much more than expected.

This pot of one-serving instant noodles was so huge on the local B&M shelf that I had to give it a try. I could barely fit it in my food cupboard when I got home, which served as a good excuse to rip into it and eat it right away. The noodles look a little… [Read More]

ASDA Chicken Madras with Pilau Rice

First of all, the packaging passes the quality test: easy peel film. No faffing around with adding water or anything either – just heat for 3 mins, stir, heat for 3 mins, eat. Fibre 6g (recommend 30g per day), so eat five of these and you’re golden, except you’d then be at around 175% of… [Read More]

Tesco Chicken and Asparagus Risotto

Nice, simple instructions – 4 minutes in the microwave. Two things stand out for me: there’s quite a strong flavour of parsley (not a bad thing), and there’s plenty of chicken. Not sure if this is one of your five a day, but it feels healthy, and is 11% asparagus, with peas and other goodness packed… [Read More]
