Food review: Wok & Rice, Hereford

menu

I’ve been going to this Noodle & Rice Bar since Summer 2015 and I order the same dish every time: Egg noodle, Delhi sauce (chili, garlic and coriander) plus veg and Tiger prawns. It is a generous serving and delicious- I’m addicted. It is located on 57-59 Commercial Rd, Hereford HR1 2BP down the hill from the Sixth Form. Definitely recommended!

It is open 7 days a week from 12:00pm – 11:00pm

Food review: The Burger Shop, Hereford

DSC_1227

Above is the Farmer Tom’s beef burger: Hereford Beef Patty, Mature Cheddar, Dill Pickles, Mustard Mayo, Ketchup, Baby Gem, Brioche. It sounds a good choice along with the rosemary salted chips it looks pretty good. The Burger shop at Aubrey street sells burgers only, its website looks fantastic its instagram page is chic but the beefy patty’s wasn’t as juicy as expected, but then it was my first ever visit. All in all worth a visit on the chilly Christmas Eve I went in to visit. It is under a brand called “A Rule of Tum.”

Food review: “Superb Salted Peanut Caramel” by The Grown Up Company

There was a display at WHSmith for this new company’s sweet bars. Anything with salted caramel is an immediate grab and buy scenario. This 70g (x2 35g bars) is £1.99. It sells itself as: “Sumptuous salted caramel enveloping a row of peanuts on a bed of peanut praline encased in luxury milk chocolate.”

The taste? No salted caramel flavour and not particularly nutty. In some ways it is an overpriced handmade British feeble version of Reese’s pieces without the punch.

When a business or brand’s image is predictable and you can simulate in your mind how they drafted their ideas for branding you expect the flavour to be as stated. Why else go out of your way with describing the product as (see quote above on “sumptuous…enveloping a row…” The packaging is trying too hard when they should have tried harder on flavour quality. Merely sweet milk chocolate with a slight nutty caramel taste. Not the decadent and irresistible blend of salted caramel and peanuts. It’s Business ABC’s: improve product, not shelf space.c1 c2
