I love authentic Asian food, and living in Birmingham we’re lucky to have a superb Chinese Quarter. But with a young child, a job, a business, and everything else that comes in between, it’s not particularly easy to find time to shop there. So when I was offered the chance to try out online Asian shop and supermarket, Morueats, it was an easy yes from me.
Morueats is an online-only store that carefully curates hundreds of Asian supermarket and grocery products. You’ll find items from Japan, China, Korea, Thailand and beyond. The items are chosen by the founders of Morueats, who have travelled extensively across Asia, so know what is authentic, and of course tasty.
I was delighted to receive a box of Asian snacks and goodies, delivered to my door. I think food has to be the best type of delivery! The items were a mix of sweet and savoury, so a great way to try out different tastes and flavours.
Some of the highlights for me are:
Choco Pie – soft cake layers filled with fluffy marshmallow, this is like a wagon wheel but even better!
Moringa Hi Chew – this chewy sweet has an amazing fruity taste that genuinely replicates strawberry, not the synthetic flavour that we often find in sweets.
Kato Nata De Coco Strawberry Juice – this sweet drink brings together juicy strawberry with the chewy texture of nata de coco, which is almost like a coconut water jelly. It’s weird, but I like it 🙂
Nongshim’s Shin Kimchi Ramyun – these Korean noodles are infinitely better than the bland instant noodles we get in standard supermarkets. The noodles themselves have a really dense texture, and the broth packs a punch.
Choco Boy – These fun treats combine a crunchy biscuit stem and rich chocolate cap in a mushroom shape. They remind me a chocodip, but all in one. They are very moreish.
Even the treats that weren’t quite to my taste were still brilliant to try. Getting the mixed box has given me a great chance to explore new foods, and work out what I do and don’t like.
If this idea appeals to you, Morueats offers a Moru surprise box of 16-18 items. You’ll get a blend of Asian snacks, noodles and drinks from Japan, Korea, China, Thailand and more. It costs £24.99, so a good price for a treat for yourself. It would also make a fantastic gift.
It’s a delight to have found Morueats and can’t wait to place my next order. I know Choco Pie will definitely become a staple in our house now!
