Fresh Direct: Favorite heat and eat or ready to cook item to get
- Dandel Jun 24, 2007 07:40 AM
Fresh Direct has been upping their choices of ready to heat or cook items; i wonder whether anyone has tried their soups, kabobs, pastas, rosa mexicano or michael stark dinners.
I love their Tang's whole wheat soba noodles. I eat it with a soba noodle soy base I bought from a japanese grocery store.
I recently discovered they sell cooked brown rice and am looking forward to ewcwiving my first order.
The frozen whole wheat baguette is very good. So are the criossants, excellent actually. But, I stopped ordering from there when they started charging a "fuel surcharge" on top of the delivery $5 fee at that time. I can use the $8-10 to buy actual FOOD someplace else.
We've tried 2 Rosa Mexicano items - Fresh Dining beef enchiladas and ready to cook shrimp. Both were very spicy - so spicy that I wouldn't order them again. Thought the partnership was a good idea, though.
Of the fresh dining meals, our favorites are the chicken cacciatore (w/ gnoci), chilean seabass (w/ potatoes and broccoli rabe), and salmon (w/ potatoes and asparagus).
I haven't ordered many other ready to cook items. The prep work they do doesn't seem worth the price compared to just meat, chicken or pastas purchased separately.
