I did a review of the plain Ch’King Sandwich yesterday and most of that review holds true here. The Deluxe version of the Ch’King sandwich simply adds lettuce, tomato and a different, sweet sauce. Oh and this is spicy since this is the spicy version. Otherwise, this is just as good as the plain Ch’King sandwich, except it has more condiments that go with it, which is nice.
The fast food chicken sandwich wars started with Chick-Fil-A and continue to rage on to this day. The newest salvo comes from Burger king in a new line of slightly higher end chicken sandwiches.
The most simple entry in this new line of chicken sandwiches is the plain Ch’King Sandwich. The sandwich simply contains a fried chicken patty with pickles and Burger King’s new Savory Sauce on a bun.
This was pretty good. The chicken is all white meat and while not dry, still not as moist as the Popeye’s or McDonald’s chicken sandwiches. The Savory Sauce they put on this doesn’t really have too much flavor to it. What is nice though the moisture it adds to the sandwich as I truly dislike how many of these new fast food chicken sandwiches come with no sauce, as that lacks flavor and moisture for the chicken patty which tends to be dry.
Overall, not a bad chicken sandwich. However, what matters is how this chicken sandwich compares to its competitors. I’d say that the Popeyes chicken sandwich is still my favorite fast food chicken sandwich with Shake Shack’s in the same class, but slightly worse. McDonald’s new chicken sandwich is second place. Wendy’s and Burger King probably tie for third. Chik-Fil-A is last (I know lots of people love Chik-Fil-A, however, I’ve had it multiple times and found the patty dry and the lack of any sauce other than what I added to be even drier).
Details: Couldn’t find a site for this specific product. The Chinese name of the Wei-Long company is 卫龙 in case you want to copy and paste that to do your own search. Wei-Long is actually a very big company in China and had a few health scandals there as well… which doesn’t bode well for their products.
These were all right. They are pretty spicy. The thing I liked most about this product is that inside the initial packaging, the individual servings of spicy tofu are individually packaged. That means you don’t have to worry about having to finish the package once you open it because they will remain sealed. In fact, because of the spice level, eating one piece once in a while is probably the optimal way to eat these.
The only other thing worth mentioning is that Wei-Long, the company that produces this product, has a pretty bad reputation for cleanliness and food safety within China itself. Just something to consider before buying this product.
These were a little pricier than what I normally spend on instant noodles. A pack of four cost about eight dollars. Surprisingly, these were actually worth it. These were some good noodles that go very well when you add more things to them like vegetables or meat.
The noodles themselves were very chewy and offered a good bite. It reminded me of hand pulled noodles, which they weren’t, but they were good nonetheless.
The sauce packets they offered were liquid, not powdered, which usually means the quality is better at the cost of shelf life. The sauces here were pretty good, though they were mostly soy sauce, scallion oil and hot oil. The hot oil specifically was very nice as it was pretty spicy while offering that Sichuan peppercorn taste that people like.
Overall, these were some good noodles. I’d probably buy them again.
Details: Bought this in an Asian supermarket. Couldn’t find a website. There is an incorporated address on the back that places the company in Pennsylvania.
It’s hard to make out in the picture, but this is actually one of seven varieties of flavors this baked good comes in. The label identifies all seven and what’s in them in tiny text. I think the line of purple sesame seeds on this particular one signify that this is the taro filled flavor.
This was tasty, flaky and good. I’ve had one other product from Judy’ Bakery Shop and that was great as well. Considering how much I’ve enjoyed this company’s products so far, I am unsurprisingly becoming a fan.
Overall, this was great. It was heavy, buttery and delicious. I’d gladly buy it again… when I’m in the mood for something heavy and sweet.
