Year of the Takeout Day 118: Vegetarian Plus's Vegan Kung Pao Chicken
Vegan Kung Pao Chicken by Vegetarian Plus
OK, Year of the Takeout ate some fresh carryout earlier, but it's not worth writing about, so we proceed to a frozen feature--the faux poultry pictured above.
Overall, Plus's pick--available at some area supermarkets--ain't bad. The sauce is a little on the sweet side, but the meat-free protein satisfies adequately, though it doesn't taste much like its namesake bird.
