I really enjoyed this meal however, I agree with a few others in saying the pull pork is slightly too sweet. Nevertheless, all of the combined ingredients worked well together in my opinion.
Fresh, delicious, and simple to heat. 12/10 would recommend!
Good flavors. Easy to fix. Buns and vegetables just right when warmed.
Much too sweet. I tried to cut the sweetness by adding my own vegetables, chiles, and a splash of white vinegar.
The buns heated in the microwave just fine for me. Loved all the toppings and very tasty. Super easy as well. I was lazy and just sliced my cubes into rounds. Tasted just fine :)
These were rather good. Very easy. The most effort was making cucumber matchsticks. Usually I don’t like dishes with 5 spice. It’s in there but so mild it was still good. I loved the mix of textures and flavors on the soft steamed bun.
