ALGO SOLO MEALS
The food will be delivered by ALGO’s friendly delivery guy at your home or office at your preferred time. Your meals are neatly packed in a sealed microwavable container for easy storage, transportation and re-heating. Mine arrived exactly during my lunch break! Perfect Timing!
Utensils are included in the package, also, it has an attached re-heating instruction for your meal so you’ll have a hassle free lunch or dinner!
When my meal arrived, it was still warm so I did not bother reheating it.
Meat & Spinach Lasagna Combo P140.00
This was a great tasting lasagna. The noodles were perfectly cooked. It was meaty and the sauce was very thick flavorful. You can taste the spinach in every bite but its flavor is still very subtle. Hiding the veggies inside the lasagna is a great idea is you are not a veggie lover like me. If I may suggest, please add more cheese toppings. :) If you love pasta, you have to try this.
Cheese-Filled Hamburger Steaks w/ Mashed Potatoes P140.00
I tried the mashed potato first and it was delicious. It was creamy and flavorful. You can still feel some potato bits in every bite. The burger was good as well, although it was not heavily seasoned, you can really taste the beefy goodness in the patty. The mushroom gravy was perfect for this dish, in itself there was nothing special with the gravy but together with the mashed potato and the burger, it was a great combination.
Grilled Chicken in Teriyaki Sauce on White Rice P135.00
If you love teriyaki you’ll love this. The grilled chicken fillet was perfectly cooked. The flavor goes down deep into the meat. You can really taste the “grilled/smoked” flavor of the chicken. Although it would be better with a little bit more sauce on the side.
ALGO FROST BITES
ALGO frostbites are cook it yourself steaks and chicken sticks. For the steaks, they have Aged and Seasoned Australian Steaks available in T-Bone, Prime Rib, Rib-Eye. For the chicken sticks, they have Herbed Parmesan Chicken Sticks which are available in both dark and white meat. These frozen goodies are delivered to you frozen and neatly packed.
The Frozen Steaks and Chicken Strips are delivered sealed.
The steak comes with a mushroom gravy and the chicken comes with a mayo dip. The package also has an attached cooking instructions on how to prepare your ALGO Frost Bites.
I prepared the steaks in 2 slightly different ways, first is with oil and the second is without. There was no major difference in the final product though.
Thaw and Pat Dry the Steak…
Pan-Fry.. Too bad we don’t have this stove-top grill at home.. that would have been better.
After a few minutes some fat will come out… Juicy!
This is the one with less oil..
I like my steak well-done. I am not a fan of raw meats.. According to the instructions, well-done is 5-6 minutes on each side.
After 5 minutes or so..
Here are the finished products with the mushroom gravy which I reheated in the microwave. The taste? To be honest I am not a huge steak fan, I like ribs more. I know very little about steaks. But what I can say is the meat was very tender considering that It was cooked well-done. The meat was mildly seasoned, you can still taste the goodness of the beef. Over all, it was good! This 2-piece steak is Half a Kilo so that only cost P325! That’s P162.50 per piece! Who says you cant afford to eat steak everyday? It was like eating on a restaurant (less the ambiance) on a super cheap price tag!
The chicken strips is more straight forward. Just fry and you are done!
This is a half kilo pack as well, there were around 12-15 chicken strips in the bag.
The chicken was delicious. It was crispy and you can really taste the cheese and herbs in the breading. The generous serving of mayo-something dip was also perfect! This is a perfect baon for your kids! And a perfect quick fix meal! For only P275/half kilo this is a meal good enough for a small family.
We’ll there you have it. A great alternative to your everyday meals! If you live a busy lifestyle, don’t know or don’t have time to cook, we’ll you better call ALGO now to order and schedule your food delivery!
