Wanchai Ferry Review & Giveaway!

Last week I received a package of Wanchai Ferry new beef and broccoli frozen meal. It was packed in dry ice, which was pretty cool because it is not yet widely available. I also received two gorgeous tea sets with an iridescent (that word will always reminds me of Dirty Dancing) mugs, tea strainers, and loose organic green tea.

I received the tea sets first and Johnny and I love them. The mugs are gorgeous and wrapped up nicely with the strainer and loose tea in a little net bag. They would make great gifts if you are selfless enough to give them away!

Then a few days later the dry ice pack came with the beef and broccoli. The ingredient list is long, but the majority of it is spices and flavoring for the sauce. I do like that there is no MSG added, but I did not like that there was whey protein concentrate added. It is most likely there to boost the protein (18g per serving), but meant that Johnny could not eat it with me.

The bag contains the loose beef and vegetables, a separate sauce pack, and a separate rice pack. While the beef, veggies, and sauce cook on the stove, the rice is cooked in the microwave. It was a little sweet for my taste (3 sugars listed on the ingredients) and also has 55% of your daily sodium. But I do have to say, I was really impressed with the amount of vegetables and the quality of all the ingredients. There was a ton of bright, green broccoli and the beef was really tender and flavorful. It was also really easy to prepare, with minimal effort in about 10 minutes.


A lucky Dinner at Christina's reader will win a package like the one I received!

Included is a frozen package of Wanchai Ferry frozen beef and broccoli (serves 2), two tea mugs, two tea strainers, and two tins of organic green tea.

I don't believe I've seen their frozen variety at my local store yet, but I have seen their boxed varieties on the shelf. I haven't tried either but would love to have some good, quality Chinese food at home!

No, I've never tried their frozen meals before. I have tried a couple of their dinner kits though, and I thought they were fairly easy and pretty good! (we did supplement them somewhat, but did enjoy them)
