In this age of fast paced life, the working class personnel are left with little time to enjoy a full meal, let alone prepare a decent one. It is a different matter altogether if you love cooking, but for those of us not interested in the culinary arts, ordering from a nearby delivery outlet remains the only option. And while availing that option, you can not always get a full meal which spares your belly too.
That is where Me-Bo comes in. When you have a varied range of cuisines to chose from – South Asian, Indian and Italian and these meals come in an air tight bowl, what more could you ask for? And they have healthier options as well – a smoothie bowl – who could have thought of that?
I recently chose to taste the following bowls from their extensive menu:
Bangkok street style chicken with glass noodles: I think I am slowly moving away from the usual noodles that we binge upon towards the lovely, soft and smooth glass noodles. And the ones here were steamed to perfection and served with juicy chicken and crunchy vegetables – bell peppers, purple cabbage, carrots and French beans topped with a coconut based creamy gravy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Balsamic Chicken with Quinoa Bowl: At first look, it looks a healthier option: sour cream, tomato salsa/compote, blanched French beans, broccoli, zucchini, bell peppers and carrots, grilled chicken in balsamic vinegar sauce with fresh quinoa. But the taste is very average – sour cream being too sour, tomato salsa too tangy and chicken too sweet. The fresh vegetables and the quinoa are the saving grace of this bowl.
Spaghetti Alfredo Bowl: In a white sauce based dish, the proportion of cheese and cream should be in optimal quantities. Too much of cheese can mar the dish by rendering the sauce thick. The same incidence happened here. The spaghetti was perfect, the vegetables crunchy, only if the the quantity of cheese was slightly lesser. RECOMMENDED.
Tiramisu Jar: I ate this after a day of delivery and trust me, it was as good as new! The cream was airy and fresh, the biscuit crumbs crunchy and the banana slices smooth and sweet. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
