there’s always something a bit nerve-wracking about eating artifically formed food (hello mcRib!). this was pretty darn good. the breading is seasoned and has a lot of flavor. the chicken is fairly tender. the fries were slightly crunchy instead of
ajinomoto asian-style pork fried rice
pretty good japanese-style fried rice with decent rice and decent flavor, if a tiny bit on the bland side. wifey likes it a lot. grade: b
van de kamp’s x-large crispy fish sticks
the breading is yum, and it’s really crispy! the fish was kind’a dry, but that could’ve been my fault…i think i overcooked them a bit. i don’t know about the 25% bigger…bigger than what?? they’re about the same size as
hung fook tong imperatae cane drink

stouffer’s corner bistro beef tips in bbq sauce
the beef’s pretty tender, but the sweet bbq sauce is kind’a boring. the potato wedges with cheese and bacon is nothing to write home about. so far, none of the stouffer’s “corner bistro” entree’s have been particularly good or exciting.
kimbo green onion pancake
