Impressions & Taste

Since the rice is separated from everything else, you may want to mix them together in a separate bowl or plate. There seems to be a good amount of rice, veggies, and pork included. Let’s check out this top rated meal!

Of course, we have to talk about the pork first. It’s much better than some of the other proteins we’ve tried from Freshly! There are hints of ginger along with savory flavors and it’s not dry. 

The veggies are cooked to a perfect softness that’s not too mushy. It shares the same flavors as the pork which is a good thing. However, if you eat the veggies or pork on its own, it can get a bit salty.

The rice is cooked fairly well. It has a coconutty essence to it which helps with the flavor. If I ate the rice on its own, I wouldn’t be disappointed. Eating it with the pork and veggies cuts the saltiness down to a much more tolerable level though.

Verdict and Rating

Overall, Freshly’s K-Town Pork & Purple Sticky Rice is the best Freshly meal I’ve had so far. The pork and veggies are extremely flavorful. The rice complements everything else perfectly. I can see why this meal is top rated. This unique meal is certainly worth a try!
