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]
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]
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]
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]
As usual, a nice, meaty burger with a creamy cheese offset by a tangy relish. Rustlers have a winning formula and they know it. 1m15s in the microwave and you’ve got a tasty snack – which is a bargain when bought on offer for £1. The relish is a little too tomato-y for me, and… [Read More]
I currently live alone, so don’t often buy into these “Meal for 2” things… but when I found this on sale for £1.65 I had to give it a go. You get a generous portion of chicken korma and chicken tikka masala, as well as a large pilau rice, four onion bhajis and two naan… [Read More]
Soft bread, succulent burger with odd fake brown grill effect, and a generous sachet of mayonnaise. Was actually really pleasant – perhaps because I’m hungry! Can’t complain. Cheap and cheerful.
Has a baked bean texture but with smaller beans. Not too salty at all – a common failure among dals – if anything actually slightly on the bland side. It’s always tricky to review a side dish. Pictured here is half of the dal, along with fried courgettes, brown rice and Caribbean pork steaks. Unlike… [Read More]
