Charlie Bigham’s Chicken Thai Red Curry

Published on August 29th, 2020 Charlie Bigham

This is my third Charlie Bigham offering. I just can’t help myself when I see it reduced to half price (meals typically retail at about £7-8). Whilst I bought this on offer, it does feed two, so the £3.50-£4 RRP per person is comparable to standard ready meals. It takes a little more time than… [Read More]

Sainsbury’s Chicken Coconut Laksa Noodles

Published on July 11th, 2020 Sainsbury's My Goodness!

Sainsbury’s has a real thing for laksa. Apart from the soup I reviewed in 2012, I haven’t seen it anywhere else. I think this is an iteration on the same product: a creamy, lemongrass-rich sauce with fresh vegetables and chunks of chicken. There’s more chicken than last time (though it still feels a bit mediocre)… [Read More]

Tesco Thai Green Chicken Curry with Jasmine Rice

Published on December 7th, 2019

Bastard hot (temperature wise). Somehow retains its heat for ages. Do not eat in a hurry. Strong Thai flavour. Not much chicken. Separate compartments keeps the rice really sticky – but may also serve as a disguise for smaller portions. I’m onto you, Tesco! Tasty, but I was still hungry afterwards.

Naked Noodle: The Big One Fiery Chicken Panang Thai Egg Noodles

Published on July 13th, 2019

Given the sheer size of this pot (and the name, “The Big One”, which is a promise it had better well keep), I was disappointed to open the lid and find only a small mound of noodles at the bottom. I had a choice of 3 fill levels depending on how thin I wanted my… [Read More]

Blue Dragon Spicy Thai Flavour Noodle Wok

Published on April 20th, 2019 Blue Dragon

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.

John West Tuna Fillets Sweet Thai Red Chilli

Published on December 2nd, 2012

Tasty, nice Thai flavours, goes well with Sainsbury’s own Thai Rice. 40 seconds only makes it lukewarm, so ignore the microwave instructions and pop it in for a bit longer. Overpriced for the amount you get, so loses marks there.

Sainsbury’s Chicken Laksa Soup

Published on September 2nd, 2012

Really gorgeous thai curry smell. Don’t let the word “soup” fool you- I tried eating this with a spoon and struggled! This is principally a noodle dish and you’ll need chopsticks or a fork. Lovely, clearly fresh ingredients, healthy stuff, one of your five a day. The sauce is just creamy enough, and has a… [Read More]
