Like it or not, I rely on frozen foods for many meals. There are some people that have the time the plan, shop, prepare and cook delicious meals from scratch. I am not currently one of those people. So when dinnertime arrives, the frozen dinner can be my best friend, quickly giving me hot food into my belly. As someone who has eaten their fair share of frozen dinners, I can tell you that not all frozen dinners are created equal. Some are just “eh”, while others, like Kahiki Foods, make me question why I need to learn to cook at all.
About Kahiki Foods
When it comes to frozen food, Kahiki Foods ranks right up there with ice cream when it comes to things to keep in your freezer. Let’s get down to it:
Pepper Steak with Lo Mein Sauce
If this dish came out on a sizzling hot platter from a Chinese kitchen, I wouldn’t have been surprised. It was very savory and fulfilling. The beef was tender, the noodles were cooked perfectly, and the sauce was the perfect amount of peppery – spicy without burning your mouth.
General Tso’s Chicken
My biggest problem with this dish was that they said it should serve 8 people. If they wanted it to serve that many people, they shouldn’t have made it taste so good. My fellow tester and I ate most of the General Tso’s Chicken for lunch. I’ve had a lot of “throw-it-in-the-oven” chicken meals, and it is just amazing that Kahiki Foods was able to capture the taste of authentic, tender, and flavorful food in their frozen meals. The chicken was tender with a crispy tempura exterior. The sauce was different than other General Tso’s sauces I’ve tasted – with a strong soy flavor, which helped give it that extra authenticity.
Vegetable Egg Rolls
This was no different than the other dishes – delicious! The flavor of the wrap was delicious and the special packaging allows you to actually get a crispy egg roll out of the microwave. And when I say crispy, I mean so crispy that flakes of wrapper go flying off as you take your bites. A nice surprise is the subtle heat that comes a few moments, it’s a like a lingering pepper flavor.
Overall, Kahiki Foods allows you to have restaurant quality Asian food and restaurant quality taste at home – and that is not an exaggeration. Just in case I haven’t emphasized that this is good, I wrote the comment about “restaurant quality” before reading that Kahiki Foods had written that same phrase on their packaging. Kahiki Foods really hit the nail on the head when it comes to making just plain GOOD frozen foods. All of these dishes were prepared in under 20 minutes, which makes Kahiki Foods not only one of the best frozen food brands I have ever tasted, but also extremely convenient.
