First Impressions: I’m not a religious watcher of Top Chef, but I’m the perfect consumer, so the show logo on the box is getting my hopes up. It’s a Cafe Steamer, so it’s quite easy to cook. It looks pretty appetizing once it’s done, with lovely bright vegetables and grill-marked chicken. It doesn’t look quite like the box art, but I can’t put my finger quite on why it doesn’t.
Gustatory Impressions: The vegetables taste as fresh as they look. Carrots are crunchy, corn is sweet, peas burst when you bite into them. The chicken pieces are large and pretty tasty. The sauce is mostly just salty, but it’s not bad. The dumplings are… interesting. I’m not a big fan of dumplings in general (unless they are fried with meat inside, then I’m all for them), but these don’t seem bad. They are soft but not soggy, and not too doughy, just a bit bland.
Summary: This is a really nice amount of food for 300 calories. Not much to complain about except a bit of blandness… it could use some more herbs, I think. Also, most of the meal is pretty soft, and if there was a crunchier element added, it might be a bit more enjoyable. All in all, this is a pretty good lunch and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
