This weeks post I am reviewing Aisha’s Breaded Chicken Goujon because it’s halal. Also, I wanted to talk about halal food available in supermarkets that end up taking up a lot of space in Asian freezers…freezer number 2 that is.
Since moving to Birmingham, I have been fortunate to have more halal options available to me. Down South in my parent’s little peaceful village, the nearest Asian foodstore was a 7.7 mile drive (according to google maps). To be honest, us Asian’s living in these type of areas have got used to it. We buy in bulk thus the freezer number ... (Read more)
I am back to review one of the favourite foods in this nation. No, it’s not curry, although that is a favourite too. It’s battered fish! More specifically I am reviewing Lidls Deluxe 2 Jumbo Battered Cod Fillets. Why you ask. Because people need answers and I am here to provide those answers!
So getting straight into it. I want to talk about the price. It’s expensive, really expensive. These 2 Cod Fillets cost £3.19. I still shed a tear when I think about it. But Mrs Reviews wanted some good quality fish for dinner. She never really asks for ... (Read more)
How cool and hipster is Halloumi right now? It’s probably one of the trendiest and versatile foods out there. I have seen it used in so many different types of dishes. So I was surprised and not-so-surprised at the same time when I came across Aldi’s Specially Selected Halloumi Fries. It was instantly in the trolley because I had to try it. I did double-check the price of course!
Halloumi can be used in dishes in many ways. I once came across a menu where the vegetarian options were halloumi burger, halloumi chips and halloumi salad. At work, we have ... (Read more)
If you are anything like us, then you probably assume it’s expensive to shop in Waitrose. Being a young family, we don’t often do a full shop there and mostly shop at Aldi or Lidl which are close to us and also great for budget shopping.
When we do shop in Waitrose, it’s mainly for Baby Reviews because we want him to enjoy organic fruit and vegetables and our local Waitrose has a pretty good selection. However, we do usually end up buying a few things for ourselves as evident from our first review. But we never thought ... (Read more)
Anyone else find that going shopping makes them get pretty hungry? That’s my reason behind purchasing this little item during a grocery shop on a rainy Friday evening. As I wandered down the aisles, my eyes ravenously scoured the shelves, looking for something to satisfy my craving quickly enough when we got home before I entered full-on ‘hangry’ mode.
I decided to settle on this vegetarian pie from Aldi’s chilled section. It is actually much smaller than it appears in the photo. Approximately hand-size and only needed about 10 minutes in an oven to be heated up and ready.
I’ll ... (Read more)
My friends and colleagues know me now as the coffee guy. I don’t try to hide it one bit. But rather, I like offering suggestions around drinking good coffee. One of the things that I always start discussing is why I don’t buy coffee from the supermarket.
Coffee is now enjoyed and relied upon so many ways. There are a lot of people who enjoy brewing coffee at home using something like a Cafetiere. But what some may not know is that using coffee from the supermarket, they are not experiencing coffee at it’s best. This is because supermarket coffee ... (Read more)
I am not sure if I would see the day I would be eating meat-free nuggets. But here I am…eating meat-free nuggets.
The whole taking meat foods and making it plant-based is the new craze. Supermarkets are on the express meat-free producing bandwagon right now. Vegan burgers have also become very trendy and you can even buy things like impossible burgers in shops. Now I am all for crazy new food inventions and will be definitely diving into these products with Mrs Reviews. But I wanted to review one of the first meat-free products I came across which is Quorn. ... (Read more)
Okay please proceed with reading this post with caution if you have a sweet tooth. This review we are indulging ourselves into Lidl’s Deluxe 2 Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake. We picked this up on offer for £1.39 when we were really in need of small dessert to accompany our Saturday night meal.
Straight off the bat, this looks almost identically similar to the Gu Cheescake products which I and my family are a very big fan of. This Lidl version is much cheaper compared to the Gu’s at less than 70p per pot so I was happy with the purchase (and ... (Read more)
After a little break, we are back and the best way to get into it is to review chilled pizza! It also gives us the opportunity to review Morrison’s Hand Stretched & Stonebaked Margherita Pizza. This is our second review of the supermarket pizzas and I am really excited to talk about this one.
If you read my last review then you would know I was not fond of ASDA’s branded pizza. I gave a detailed explanation with everything wrong with it although it was their frozen version. Part two of the chilled version will follow in the future.
Mrs Reviews ... (Read more)
I’m a pretty simple girl when it comes to my savoury foods. If you’ve read my review of Lidl’s Deluxe Chunky Chips, you may already now that I could easily live off potatoes, rice and eggs. I’m a little more discerning when it comes to desserts and puddings though. I don’t hide the fact that I don’t have too much of a sweet tooth. I would easily choose a bag of crisps over a chocolate bar, in all honesty. But, like all mere mortals, I am sometimes struck by a craving for a decadent treat. So when Mr Reviews ... (Read more)
