|Herb-Roasted Chicken Over A Medley Of Zucchini, Tomatoes & Butternut Squash|
I had been walking by My Fit Foods many times because it's right next to Trader Joe's, a few steps down from my favorite Chinese restaurant, a few more steps from Wholefood supermarket, an authentic Japanese grocery store, Blaze Pizza and also a number of Japanese restaurants. I have always been curious about this shiny and sparkly clean store front but as you can see, there are just too many food choices within walking distance that it's not easy for me to make up my mind to walk into this prepared meals store.
Today, I finally bought a box of dinner ($7.29 + tax) from there before I walked over to pick up my Chinese lunch next door. The box size reminds me of meals that I ordered when I was flying with Virgin America. In my opinion, the taste and quality of this dinner are also similar to the meals served by Virgin America, which I didn't particularly love, but I had no problem swiping my credit card for when I was hungry and I had no other choice. The quality and the taste of this dinner are decent, but the chicken is just way too bland for my taste. The veggies are somewhat less bland but they are still not well seasoned for my palate. I mainly tasted the peppery seasoning from the veggies, and no salt. The taste is too one-dimensional for me, which is somewhat boring, compared to the ready meals from grocery stores like Wholefood, Fresh & Easy & Trader Joe's. This dinner box is however much better than frozen dinners. It's after all made up of decent quality real chicken and real veggies.
Los Angeles may seem to be a great market for healthy meals, but the competition is fierce and consumers' are spoiled by all the great cuisines brought in from around the world. If this store wants to survive here in Los Angeles, it has to do a lot better, in terms of taste, quality, price and delivery.
