It's been a while since I've written a blog post on Honorable Rat. We've been sick, NFL season just started and the weather has gotten a little colder. All of which had stopped me from heading out to enjoy what Tokyo Disney has to offer. After about 2 weeks of hiatus from the resort, I decided to take the fully recovered Rat family to our favorite place in all of Japan. We decided to head to Tokyo Disneyland to enjoy Disney's Halloween. We watched the parade, went on a few rides and ate a bunch of Halloween treats, but halfway through our journey, China Voyager called to us and we had to answer that call.
I've always been a fan of China Voyager. I love its atmosphere and the food it serves up. Many a time, I've gotten into some heated debates with friends on Twitter about it being better than Hungry Bear Restaurant. What do you think? Which is better? Do leave a comment below or tell me about it on my social media pages. You can find links at the start and end of this blog post.
For this review, Honorable Rat is gonna be reviewing China Voyager's Shrimp & Vegetables in Pork Soup. Right off the bat, I'm gonna tell you that this is the weakest dish in China Voyager. Compared to the rest, I like this one the least. Yes, the noodles are cooked very well, much like the other dishes on offer. Yes, its soup base is tasty. It has the right amount of saltiness to it, but it tasted more like chicken soup stock rather than pork soup. I was caught off guard a little, but still tasty nonetheless. The shrimps in it were juicy and had a great springy texture as you bite into them. But.... yes, there's a but! But, there were very little pieces of shrimp in there and the amount of vegetables in it were minimal. It was just bean sprouts, some slices of spring onions and carrots. This is the one dish in China Voyager that I feel I can make at home. Just get myself a packet of Chicken Maggie Mee, cut up some vegetables and add in a shrimp or two, or three. If you head to China Voyager, I would recommend for you to try the other dishes. If you would like to try this, come over to my place, I'll cook it up for you for half the price and I'll still make a profit. Cha-ching!
