As a young Asian lad, one of the highlights of my overweight life was when mother used to cook spring rolls. I remember how the spring roll did really rock ‘n’ roll (get it?) my life, eating extreme amounts that would even make Adam Richman even cry. They roared with taste, and were (and still is) one of my biggest highlights in life. It’s one of the things I miss hugely when I’m at university, and is a big gap in my life.
However, can the vegetable spring roll from Munch Munch fill that gap in my life?
The short answer is no. It really is disappointing and falls flat on it’s face, and really reinforces the rule that you should just get some chicken at Munch Munch.
Let’s start with the positives. It’s well made, and the spring rolls contains the right amount of vegetable ingredients within the roll, which contain the following (that I could at least taste) –
- Some sauce thing that I would assume doesn’t contain any meat
They come together in an component fashion that doesn’t taste terrible, but doesn’t taste great either. A lot of the ingredients within the spring roll is overrided by this mystery sauce which just tastes like a sauce with a slight tinge of tikka masala (if any readers would like to help me out here, it’s most appreciated). It’s an easily forgettable taste that does not really try to make a huge impression. However, the texture is smooth but the taste reminded me heavily of an vegetable Indian samosa, so if you like those, then I suppose this isn’t the worst way to go.
It’s also just not very filling. As Munch Munch is always known for superb value, this pound saver menu falls under the pound saver menu’s that don’t really offer great value, and is very small. Even with three spring rolls, the three are just too thin to really fill the stomach at all. When combined with a very less then a mediocre taste, the whole meal just falls flat.
Another mentionable problem here that is worth putting into consideration is that this pound saver menu doesn’t seem to be popular at all. It took just under ten minutes for the vegetable spring rolls to be served to me, which meant that the rest of my more superior meal was delayed during spring rolls. So take that as a precaution.
It’s not a bad meal, but it’s also just not very good. When putting into consideration the long preparation time, the very mediocre taste and the lack of value, it’s very much not worth considering at all. Go for something else, like some delicious chicken. That, or I’m just being harsh because I’m Asian and as expected, spring rolls are my forte.
As a wise man once said – “One day without chicken is like not seeing the sun for a day.”
