Delicious. Perfect--one of the few truly flawless Munchery dishes that I have tried. Most are good, but not 'awesome'. This one definitely is all that!

The picture is misleading in that it shows three slices of pork but it only came with two. I ordered two of this dish, for myself and my husband and they both only came with two slices so was disappointed. The taste was fairly good.

Very disappointing, the steak was full of fat and unedible, but the rest of the dish was very good!

At first, the portion looked small but once I transfer all the steak pieces and potatoes, the portion was more than enough. Wish there was just one more thing as a side to this delicious meal.

It was delicious but didn't come with the cheese that was part of the dish.

Tasty - next time I will eat the pesto separate. It was flavorful enough without the pesto in the soup, but the pesto on its own was delicious.

A little too salty... But it tastes good. Could have used a little more sausage,. It only had about 3-4 small pieces of sausage. I'll order it again tho.

Reheating steak is difficult to do well. I thought it was under-seasoned. The fava side was good.

The picture portion was definitely more than the actual serving (received 4 mini slices). The sauce was the star for this meal.

This arrived looking in limp condition and quite unappealing, and with a measly portion. Perhaps a quality control oversight? Munchery issued credit and will discard, though that means having to go look for other food this weekend... Grrrr.
