Barely edible and way overpriced
Don’t hesitate to buy this product!
I’m a scratch cook, preparing supper for my wife and myself every day, (I’m retired, she still works full-time), so I don’t usually buy many microwave food products. However, I have fatigued of eating leftovers for lunch every day and these products have turned out to be the perfect solution. I like them much better than frozen dinners in terms of flavor and convenience. I’ve also found them much more savory than similar and comparable microwave dishes.
For me, the bottom line is flavor and, secondarily, heartiness — I don’t want to be hungry again fifteen minutes after eating lunch. This dish goes into the microwave following a minimum of preparation fuss (all you need is a little water — everything else is included) and is finished from beginning to end in just minutes. I cannot say enough about the good flavor, and the portion size is fully adequate for me which is a rare occurrence in my past experience with such products since I weigh 265 pounds.
If you have any specific concerns about nutrition or ingredients, you can check those issues on the product description; however, I did wish to let others know how convenient and how tasty these Simply Asia products really are.
Suprisingly tasty and good
Decided to give it a shot.
I was suprised-tasty and good quality. Included fork, sturdy plastic bowl.
If you are looking for a quickly prepared lunch while at work-you cannot go wrong with this.
This can not be compared to ramen noodles-totally different class of product here.
Mediocre but convenient
The noodles came formed into a solid mass – I suggest crumbling them apart. The dried veggie packet was tiny – smaller than the seasoning packet found in a bag of ramen noodles. I’m not sure why the ambiguous term “topping” was used, when the topping packet appeared to contain nothing more than ordinary sesame seeds – maybe they’re imitation seeds? At any rate, preparing the noodle bowl was quick and easy – dump the noodles, veggies, and sauce in the bowl, add a few spoonfuls of water, put on the lid, microwave for about a minute, stir, and sprinkle on the topping. The noodles had a good texture, and the overall impression was of warmed-up leftover takeout food (which I personally like, so don’t take that as a negative).
Portion-wise, I would say the bowl is adequate as a main dish, but I probably wouldn’t be fully satisfied without an additional side dish like an egg roll, a cup of soup, or a small salad. The bowl is only about half-full when prepared. The package suggests supplementing the dish with cooked meat, tofu, veggies, or garnishes, so you can always toss a few leftovers into the bowl to bulk up the meal.
The problem I had with this dish was the sauce. It was too strong (both in sweetness and saltiness) and there was too much of it. I would not have been able to eat it at all, had I not added about half a cup of leftover white rice to the bowl. Doing so thinned out the sauce and made it eatable, but even so I only managed to finish half the bowl. I personally would not purchase this product again, but if you like lots of strong, heavy sauce, you would probably enjoy this dish.
