Precious Pea, this is for you ;-)
Earlier, I posted a review on Veaty Bites's chicken flavour vegetarian chunk. I've tried the Pandan Chicken Style recently and here's what I have to say...
This was how the chunks looked like straight out from the freezer. The chunks are similar to the chicken flavour ones, just that these babies are marinaded with turmeric, lemongrass and a host of other ingredients just like the real thing. They are then roll with a small piece of pandan leaf secured with a small piece of skewer. I decided to defrost them as I'm so afraid of splattering hot oil even though you could fry them in their frozen state. I had thought of baking in the oven but then again I contemplated since pandan chicken packages are usually deep fried.
After deep frying, wrapped and unwrapped.
My verdict - they are not very flavourful as compared with the real thing. The marinade was sort of like being coated on the chunks hence the inner part of the chunks tasted just like the normal chicken flavoured chunks. However, this is a good party food as it is utmost easy to prepare - deep fried, microwave or bake in the oven in its frozen state. Well, we still enjoyed them nevertheless.
I still have one pack of satay flavoured chunks that I've gotten at BCAF07. Will update when I cook them later.
