Wanchai Ferry Asian Meals: Review & Giveaway



I like to cook but certain aspects of it deplete my desire to even consider being in the kitchen for more than ten minutes. Certain recipes spark my interest or I get a taste for a certain something but then I look in my pantry to realize I don't have half of the ingredients I'd need to prepare that meal. That's where the take out comes in. My husband and I are take out junkies. When it's not take out, I'm usually opting for a meal that takes little time to prepare so I can keep an eye on my busy little boy!


When MyBlog Spark offered my the opportunity to try the new Wanchai Ferry Asian meals, I was so excited! To know that I could actually get restaurant quality Chinese cuisine without the wait and expense of ordering out really perked up my taste buds! Tonight I tried the orange chicken meal. In just one package I got crispy chicken, veggies, sauce and the most delicious jasmine rice. Preparation was so easy! I felt like Mad Mom Stir-Fry Extraordinaire by the time I was done making my Orange Chicken Feast!

The vegetables are so crunchy and taste so fresh. That has to be my number one complaint about ordering Chinese take out. The veggies, especially broccoli, are so soggy and cooked to death! My favorite part of this meal was the authentic jasmine rice. The sutle jasmine flavor in the rice paired with the beautifully made orange sauce was like heaven in my mouth! Sometimes orange sauce can be too tart or sweet but the ingredients in Wanchai Ferry's orange chicken sauce harmonized perfectly with the rice and vegetables.

It was so good, I could have seriously eaten the entire package. I had a hard time setting some aside for my husband to try! Do I have your taste buds' attention? You can get a $1.50 off coupon here! The site even offers meal tips to enhance your Wanchai Ferry frozen entree!

Oh yummy! I love Chinese but don't get to eat out very often considering there are 6 of us and it costs a fortune! However, fast food is always what everyone wants when we do eat out.

Dining out with our grabby 7-month-old has become downright impossible (you'd be amazed how quickly he can lunge for the forks!) but at the same time I'm a working mom and by about Wednesday night I am too wiped out to feel like cooking at all. We typically end up scrounging mysterious leftovers or nuking Ramen noodles. This would be a huge upgrade! Thanks for offering the giveaway!
