I know it's not good to admit this but I LOVE these Chow Meins that Vesta make! It's a guilty secret and I can't believe I'm telling so many people because even some of my mates don't know I eat these! lol It's a dried meal that you have to boil in water for as long as it takes for the food to absorb all the water. There is a packet of chow mein mix, a packet of soft noodles, a bag of crispy noodles and a sachet of soy sauce. You cook the chow mein and noodles together in one saucepan and then deep fry the crispy noodles, the poxy amount of soy sauce you get in a sachet is a waste of time so chuck that straight in the bin and give it a good splash out of ...

Vesta dried meals have been around for many years and they don't seem to have changed very much. Thirty years ago Vesta Meals were considered the ultimate in fast food treats. So, when I saw them on sale for £1.75 in my local shop I decided to buy one. I had no idea that they were still available. My mouth was watering at the thought of this delicious meal. The red, yellow, black and white coloured cardboard box with its picture of your meal, contains a packet of noodles, a packet of crispy noodles, the chow mein itself and some soya sauce. The cooking instruction are clear and simple enough to follow, but it is a bit of a fiddle. It says on the ... Read the complete review

Last weekend I wanted to have a vesta meal that I had remembered having many years ago. The meal was their chow mein and the thing I remembered most about it was the crispy noodles which puffed and spiralled when you put them in oil. At first I was a bit disheartened because I was in sainsburys and couldnt find any vesta meals at all, I asked for some assistance and was told that they dont sell them anymore! So I went onto Tesco price check to have a look and see if anyone sells them and found yes indeed it is sold in all the major supermarkets apart from Sainsburys. Off I went to Tesco and sure enough found them there and they cost 1.30. and ... Read the complete review

Vesta has been making ready meals for many years now, and one of their most popular is the Chow Mein. Now unfortunately I have found these harder and harder to come by lately, as they used to be available from most major supermarkets and from local convenience stores as well. These days they will require a little more hunting for, but my local Morrisons store has them in stock. The price of these can also vary quite substantially, with them costing anywhere in the region of £2-£4, so they are especially good value if on special offer. The packaging states that they are meals for 2 people; however, I don't believe this for an instant. In my humble opinion, these meals are Read the complete review

Vesta meals are great if you do not mind predried meals, that you need to reconstitute with the cooking process. I have to say I do like them and have done so for many years, I often buy them when I need a quick snack and like the Chow mein version quite a bit. There are other versions of the Vesta meal as follows:- Chicken curry Beef Curry Prawn Curry Paella Beef Rissotto All equally nice and flavoursome. The Chow mein which we are talking about today is made from dried vegetables and beef and soy products with soft noodles and crispy noodles. To cook you need water a pan and a frying pan with ...
