wanchai ferry review and giveaway

Today's review & giveaway is for a Wanchai Ferry "Stay-At Home" prize pack!

This prize pack includes coupons for two free Wanchai Ferry frozen entrees
and a set of Asian inspired rice bowls, chopsticks, and bamboo placements!

Open to US Only



Try to use the chopsticks, not forks --much more fun!

I recently had the opportunity to review Shrimp Lo Mein through means of a free coupon. (For some reason, I received the coupon in place of the standard Orange Chicken sample everyone's received. Oh well!)

To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of Asian cuisine because I grew up in a Mediterranean household where meals focused on other kinds of spices. However, I thought it would be worth a shot because blogging is all about trying new things. So off I journeyed into the frozen foods aisle and glanced at my five flavor options:Spicy Garlic Chicken, Orange Chicken, Sweet & Spicy Shrimp, Sweet & Sour Chicken, and Shrimp Lo Mein. "Hmm, thought I, "me thinkest best to tryest the shrimp -I likest shrimp."

Good decision making on my part. I have to admit that the Shrimp Lo Mein was pretty tasty. I'm picky when it comes to shrimp but this meal did not fail to satisfy my hunger. I was pleasantly surprised considering how I try to avoid frozen foods as much as possible since it's a win/lose situation with them and I hate to lose. (Or, at least my appetite does.)

It took me about 15 minutes to prepare the meal but the process was simple. There was so much leftover though. This is definitely an entree meant for a family of 2 or 3. I thought nothing of it when I tested it out and had to wrap the rest up. Somehow, the leftovers didn't taste quite the same.

Additionally, the Wanchai Ferry experience was amplified by the lovely dinner set sent to me. I was able to add a hint of culture to the meal with the sturdy rice bowls and chopsticks provided by MyBlogSpark and Wanchai Ferry. Personally, the bamboo placemats appealed most to me -they looked great at the table!

For those of you who are not fond of frozen dinners but are willing to give Wanchai Ferry a shot, check out their website for a $1.50 coupon and for tips on how to enhance your meal.
