A great meal

This is a great one.

All dehydrated/freeze dried food loses flavor, but this one works hard to put some back in, AND it includes olive oil to add texture, flavor and essential fats we need in the high country.

It's tasty, and the brocolli bits are excellent. The noodles are good, the chicken is decent and this meal has become a favorite. It's so good that it might topple the Stroganoff... heresy? well, we've had a lot of stroganoff! Hey, there's more than one night, right?

I suggest you can really make this one shine if you bring along some dried herbs or other spices to add after you cook it. A quick sprinkle makes this one pop.

Excellent Dinner

This may be my favorite of all packaged meals (up there with Pad Thai). I like it better than similar meals in a lot of cheap Chinese restaurants and it is very easy to prepare. It is very flavorful and I always ensure at least one of these is in my pack for each trip.

It does cost a bit more than other similar meals, but well worth it. If you are big eater or one that eats only 1 or 2 big meals per trip, then this will be a very large meal for one - too big really for one sitting.

Wonderful taste and oh so easy to make!

So easy to make just follow the instructions on the bag and easily feeds two. Only needed to boil water and poor into the bag, seal it up and wait a few minutes (did my 10 min tent setup). Very delicious. If the weather is chilly, wrap a jacket around the bag so it doesn't get too cold. Eat out of the bag if you don't want bowls to clean.

Super Tasty

Easy to prepare and excellent flavor. Didn't even need to add salt or pepper. Since it is a meal for two, make sure to bring at least one extra bowl so someone can eat out of the bag and the other from the bowl.

Good Sauce

If you like Asian cuisine and sauces, this one tops my list. The broccoli is a great addition too. I'll get this one again.

Negative Reviews:

I renamed this one Pad See ...Meh

I would not recommend this one under any circumstances.
The Prep: I followed the instructions to the letter, but the noodles never warmed up with the hot water. I eventually had to dump the whole thing into my pan and even than, it took about 5 minutes of steady boiling before the noodles softened. Also, I had to add a least a cup more of water.

The Taste: As I said before, this was Pad See ...Meh. The Noodles were very poor quality-I would compare them to those Lipton Soup Packets. The taste was very bland, and by the time I was finished eating, I was wishing I had just spent 99 cents and picked up some Top Ramen.

The End Result: I am going to cancel out any noodle based camp food, as I think putting hot water in the packet will never be enough to cook them properly.

Not made for backpacking...

I was attracted by the flavor, and had no time to read the back/cooking instructions before running out of the store.

Big mistake.

When I went to cook my dinner, at 10,000 feet, and in about 10 degree temperature, I learned:

1. I will need to add 2.5 cups of boiling water, AND

2. Will need to wait 26 minutes before it's ready.

Surprisingly, I did NOT bring a measuring cup with me on my backpacking trip... So I had to GUESS how much is 2.5 cups... But then, had to wait 26 minutes to see if that was enough water, or too much.

Of course, half hour later, I discovered that I put in too much water, yet the noodles were still hard, and the whole thing was sort of like smelly soup...

I went to bed without dinner.

Worse freeze dried meal ever!

This was by far the worst experience I've ever had with freeze dried food. I read that the cooking time doubles for every 5k feet of elevation which I was fine with because come on who could pass on Pad See You. So there I was at 10k feet and I waited the whole 30 min(I gave it a few min extra to let it cook all the way) and WHAM! I had some uncooked noodles in oily soup with all the spices sinking to the bottom. The whole thing was gross. A total waste of money. REI sells other freeze dried foods(they come in blue packages)that I've never had a problem with at higher elevations and colder temperatures. Save yourself some money and get something else.

I was expecting a traditional Pad Thai taste, but the only taste is from the overabundance of garlic. If you don't like garlic don't buy this.

Neutral Reviews:

Not bad.

I didn't expect to have a real Thai meal on the trail, so with low expectations this wasn't too bad. It tasted more like a Thai soup with nice flavors (ours came out a bit watery). It wasn't close to the real Phad See Ew dish, this one had skinny noodles and I didn't taste any soy sauce or egg, and it was odd to add olive oil since I don't think that's normally used for Thai cooking. But it was a good try on the part of BP Pantry, it's nice to see new meals out there for backpackers.

This was a shared meal for two people after a long day of hiking in the desert, and was a bit small for us even though we normally eat small meals.
