Product Description: Frozen oriental-style dish from the Tai Pei brand consisting of meatballs, rice and vegetables and prepared in the microwave. I purchased a container of this product at one of our local grocery stores yesterday evening for $2. I ended up preparing it, in the microwave, last night and serving it as part of dinner-for-two with my wife.
Review of Tai Pei Japanese-Style Chicken Meatballs
I purchased a container of this product yesterday evening. Read to find out what I thought of it.
My daughters really wanted pizza for dinner last night but my wife and I both weren't overly enthused about that choice. So, while I let them have a frozen pizza, my wife and I decided to make some of the egg rolls and dumplings we had in our freezer.
I wasn't sure if that was going to be enough so I wound up stopping at the store after work in search of something to go with them. I ended up purchasing this product primarily because it was only $2 and because it looked somewhat different. After having it last night, my overall opinion was a bit mixed.
There were a couple things I did find I liked about this product. This includes the convenience. All I had to do to prepare this food was remove the plastic and microwave the entire container for a few minutes. As I've said before, convenience always scores points with me, especially when I don't have to pay a premium for it.
I also thought the meatballs had a good taste to them. At first, I was concerned they would be too spicy because they smelled like they would be. But, they had a decent-enough flavor that wasn't bland but also didn't cross any lines as far as spices go.
My biggest complaint about this product was the quantity. I suspect this was meant to be for just one person, largely because the container was only half full. However, even if that was the case, I thought the quantity was still a bit lacking.
I was especially disappointed to discover there were only three very small meatballs inside the container. If I had known that, I'm not sure I would have even made the purchase considering I didn't buy this product for the vegetables and, since I was sharing with my wife, we ended up only having 1 1/2 meatballs each.

It's an OK product that, at least when it was on sale last night, had a decent price. However, while I did enjoy the taste, the lack of quantity, especially with the meatballs, would make me think twice about purchasing this again.
