Review: Beef Patty Sandwich Builder

Post by Mark

More microwave meal reviews on the way just as soon as I have time to write them. Todays review is for a cool cheese burger meal thats meant for kids. I saw it in the freezer and it looked good so I figured so what if its meant for kids I wouldn’t mind a cheese burger meal, so I got it. This “Kid Cuisine” consists of one cheese burger, some fries, corn, and fruit snacks.

Preparing the meal was interesting. Firstly you need to remove the fruit snacks, the burger bun and the slice of cheese from the tray. You then heat up the rest of the tray for a few minutes, when thats done you place the burger in the bun with the slice of cheese and you put it in the tray and continue heating up the meal. When its done you put the fruit snacks back in the tray and voila!

Now you know how the actual meal never ends up looking like the picture on the box, surprisingly this meal actually looked very similar. I love the blue tray, it looks really funky. The whole thing actually tastes pretty good also. The burger was juicy, I really loved the fries and the corn tasted like corn. The only thing I didn’t eat was the fruit snacks since Nataly finished them all so I guess those must have been good. The only problem I saw was that the burger was a mini burger which isn’t very filling. The price for the whole meal was also 950fils which basically put it head to head with a McDonalds kids meal except with McDonalds you get a bigger burger, a coke and a toy. I would love to give this meal a 4 out of 5 but the price brought it down to 3.5 out of 5.

Review: Manicotti

Post by Mark

The Healthy Choice, as soon as I saw this in the Freezer I had to get it. Microwavable food that is healthy? Great! This meal seemed like a perfect choice for vegetarians or cheese lovers, its Manicotti, which is Ricotta, Mozzarella, Parmesan and Romano cheese filled pasta in herbed tomato sauce.

I took it out of the pack for dinner and heated it up. Like most microwavable meals the process is usually a 2 step, you heat for a few minutes, take out your meal, stir it up a bit, then put it back in for a few more minutes. This meal was no different and after a few minutes in the microwave it was done.

The first thing that I noticed was the smell, for a few minutes my kitchen smelled as if my wife could cook. The second thing I noticed was the looks, I am never going to get over the fact at how pictures on packages differ from the actual product. It still amazes me every fucking time!! It once again looks absolutely nothing like in the picture, if this was a match the box to the meal game I would lose. I took a bite and I have to say, the sauce is pretty good, but the actual cheese roll was tasteless. It also only had 2 rolls inside and for the price it cost me KD1.250 I would expect at-least double that. In the end I had to give it a score of 2.5 out of 5. There is nothing special about it, its over priced and it didn’t look appetizing. I wouldn’t buy it again.

Review: El Charrito Grande

Post by Mark

el charrito

I found this meal in the freezer at Sultan Center, it looked very appetizing and filling so I got it. The microwavable meal contains 2 beef enchiladas in chili sauce with meat, 2 cheese enchiladas in chili con queso, beans, spanish rice and salsa. Sounds yummy right?

When I took the meal out of the box it looked completely different then from the picture on the box, I tell you, these food stylists are miracle workers. The cooking instructions were easy and within a few minutes in the microwave the meal was ready.

el charrito

At first glance the food looked a bit.. off (to put it nicely). I swear I was afraid to eat it, it just looked terrible. But, for review purposes I had to eat it and it wasn’t very practical, there was no way I could hold up the enchiladas without being drenched in chili sauce and what I did manage to eat turned out to be tasteless and bland. I would definitely not have it again, it wasn’t very satisfying and and it just looked terrible. It wasn’t cheap either, I believe it costed KD1.850 so the final score will have to be a 1 out of 5.

My New Addiction

Post by Mark

bugles

I don’t what started it but I can’t seem to stop it. I am now up to 2 packs a day which is a lot more then I ever used to have. It’s very strange, once you start you can’t stop, it’s an addiction and I can’t stop, I don’t want to stop. I usually hate chips because they are all greasy and stuff but Bugles is a very different story. It tastes incredible, and once you have the first bite you can’t stop until the pack is finished. I tend to have 2 packs right after each other and would love to have 2 more when I am done with those but I hold my self back. Bugles Original Flavor is just the fucking best! [Link]

How to Make “Prison” Wine

Looks like a very gross way of doing it but seems simple enough. Beats mixing KDD cocktail juice with Jackson perfume easily. [Link]

Review: Fried Chicken Meal

Post by Mark

I don’t eat homemade food, not because I don’t like it but because I think if it takes you more time to cook it then it takes to eat it, then its not worth it. Recently I started getting microwavable food and its been a good experience. I used to think microwavable food cost KD1.5 and upwards which to me wasn’t a good deal since I could get a McDonalds combo for KD1.2, but I checked the freezers recently and you can now find meals for 500 fils and upwards. So I decided I will start buying the meals and reviewing them starting with Banquet’s “Chicken Fried Chicken Meal”.

The picture on the package looks very appetizing. What you get is fried chicken, mashed potatoes and corn. The only issue I have with the package is that on the back where the directions on how to microwave the meal is located, a large sticker with the ingredients and stuff written in Arabic is stuck on it. Very practical, how am I supposed to know how long to microwave it for if the instructions are covered!?

When it came time to cook the meal I had to remove the white sticker on the back to reveal the instructions. The instructions are easy, take out the tray, remove the transparent film cover, cook on high for 3 minutes, open microwave, stir mashed potatoes, shove back into microwave and cook for another 3 minutes. The final result? Doesn’t look very close to the picture on the package. In fact, it didn’t look appetizing at all, I even considered tossing the whole thing out because it looked as if I had cooked it wrong.

So how was it? Surprisingly good! Very strange, it looks like crap but tastes pretty good. The mashed potato was great, the corn tasted very similar to the corn at Chili’s and the chicken, although soft, tasted very cool. I was eating it and Nat was looking at me in disgust, I told her it tasted a lot better then it looked but she refused to try it.

How much did it cost me? Only 750fils! This is an incredible deal really, the taste was pretty good and although the meal wasn’t very filling, its perfect for dinner. I would definitely buy it again. Final score is 3.5 out of 5. It lost big points on the presentation.

Fried Maki

Post by Mark

Yesterday I discovered fried maki at Kei and its great! Why didn’t anyone tell me about it before? I am not a professional sushi eater so I don’t feel comfortable eating raw fish but fried is something I much more agreeable with. I had the Crispy Rolls and Prawn Tempura Maki and they were the best maki I have ever had. I would definitely recommend fried maki to any amateur sushi person.
