We return back to our normal written schedule in which the written review makes a come-back! It’s not all doom and gloom however (or is it?!) as we are joined by the Chicken Tikka Wrap Meal.
The Chicken Tikka Wrap Meal is like the odd sibling that you have in your family. (there’s always one) It’s a lovely wrap, but really not as good as it’s other sibling, the Chicken Twista Wrap Meal. With every yin, there is a yang. I will go into more explanation.
The Chicken Tikka Wrap contains all of the same raw ingredients as the Chicken Twista Wrap. Apart from coming with the standard Munch Munch fries, the wrap itself is also similar – coming with the same pitta (? – I’m an expert) bread as well as what we discussed in last week’s review, what we believe are the chicken strips within the wrap.
With this in mind, they’ve already got the amazing 80% of the formula that created the chicken twista wrap. Where the meal however falls apart, is that of the tikka sauce inside the wrap itself. It never really ever reaches the heights of greatness that last week’s meal captured with the sauce itself. It’s not to say that the sauce itself is bad as it is rather relatively good, but in relative to last week’s meal, it’s poor. The sauce itself tastes like tikka, but it’s not as spicy as one would expect tikka would be. This could be accounted for the fact that there isn’t enough tikka sauce applied on the actual wrap, making the wrap itself taste rather dry and flat. This pales in contrast to that of the mayonnaise in the chicken twista wrap, which is given very generously in the said wrap and tastes great as a result.
It’s an imperfect wrap, but however one that does have some merit. The chicken itself tastes incredibly bad-ass, and when the tikka does meet the meat it is enjoyable. The wrap that was also reviewed was extremely well-crafted unlike last week’s wrap and if last week’s wrap was built to perfection like this week, it would have received the full 10/10 accreditation. It felt right, looked superb and was incredibly satisfying to eat.
The flaws of this wrap really let the wrap down overall. It’s still a quality wrap boasting great chicken and a great build, but however is sorely let down by it’s dryness due to the lack of tikka. The tikka itself is also flawed, not tasting exactly great. Should you however be in the market for a wrap that has great chicken and tikka inside it, then you could go a lot worse as the core wrap and chicken tastes great. However if you’re going to Munch Munch, there’s also a lot better you could go for. (like the chicken twista wrap if you really want it!)
As a wise man once said – “Mediocrity is excellent to the eyes of mediocre people.”
