After reviewing the Burgundy Box DIY kit, I got the chance to taste one of their freshly served and ready-to-eat meals as well. Burgundy Box has now established themselves as one of the options when it comes to ordering from a highly curated list of gourmet meals. You can pick and choose from a variety of cuisines in meals, snacks or salads.
And so one fine Wednesday, I placed my order for a Konji Chicken with Hakka Noodles meal for lunch.
I was already starting to get hungry by the time I place the order through the website.
And as promised my served box was delivered to me within the promised time slot.
My food arrived in a neat and clean packaged plastic box with plastic cutlery like a fork, a spoon and a paper tissue.
What was in my Burgundy SERVED Box?
|Konji Chicken and Hakka Noodles Burgundy SERVED Box|
Taste: The Konji Chicken and Hakka Noodles combo worked for me. Though the chicken was a tad too dry for my taste, its tanginess blended well the freshness of the noodles. The Kimchi was a downer with the cabbage being a tad too soggy. Then again, to be fair, I've never really developed a liking for Chinese pickled cabbage.
Portion Size: For a meal for one, this meal is indeed perfect for a working lunch. Not too overbearing on the stomach, and at the same time will not make you want to place an order for something else.
Value for Money: I would say yes, considering the hygiene factor and the near perfect presentation, I would vouch for this particular box. (This comes from a person who more often than not relies on the oily, questionably healthy office canteen food during lunch-time.)
I paid INR 230 for this box.
Would I Try it Again?
Definitely. Will want to try the boxes in other cuisines as well.
Psst...A Tip: Burgundy Box also offers discounts from time to time. Currently they offer a sweet discount when you order your food on a Wednesday.
