I tried a Chinese combination today, Icelands' very own and to say I am bitterley disapointed would be an understatement.
It consisted of:
Aromatic Crispy duck and pancakes, that (and this is being kind) tasted like out of date tuna. Special Fried Rice that was pale in colour (obviously no soy or oyster sauce which is a Chinese essential) and it was full of those awful marrow peas and I mean full - why? Sweet & Sour Chicken which was basically re-shaped chicken dippers but at least the sauce was similar to what I'd expect.
I spent £5.50 for the lot, which initially looked amazing value as it was supposed to feed two (and would have had we not thrown it away), except, I can now safely say it's £5 over priced.
What makes them think they can pass this off to the public and who does the tasting at Iceland?
Surely people don't buy this stuff twice?
I'm pretty certain that the unfortunate starving people of this earth, would stick to their portion of a tea spoon of rice and two peas if offered the meal I had as an alternative.
I also had the misfortune of tasting their apple crumble once too which had a closer resemblance to the Chicken sweet and sour, than the Chicken sweet and sour did.
I hope the mum's stick to brand names when shopping at Iceland.
