Dr. Gourmet's Food Reviews

While it's best and healthiest to prepare your own meals from scratch, at Dr. Gourmet we realize that sometimes you just can't make it into the kitchen to cook. With over 1,000 convenience meals reviewed and counting, Dr. Gourmet is the largest source of unbiased frozen food reviews online.

Our motto? "We eat it, so you don't have to." We look for widely-available frozen meals and choose the healthiest options for our unbiased reviews. If there's a frozen food you would like us to review, send us an email at [email protected] and tell us about it!

This week's review: Plant-based Burrito Bowl and Spicy Thai Bowl from Tattooed Chef

Dr. Gourmet reviews Plant-based Burrito Bowl and Spicy Thai Bowl from Tattooed Chef

We've tasted some pretty terrible vegan frozen foods - vegan mac and cheese from Annie's, products from Alpha Foods, and even offerings from Saffron Road. For a long time "vegan frozen meals" has too often meant "bland" or "weird-tasting" when in fact it doesn't have to be.

Today we have two vegan and gluten-free offerings from a company that's brand-new to us: Tattooed Chef. The company is the brainchild of a (yes, tattooed) chef named Sarah, who started her culinary career in Italy but returned to her roots in Los Angeles with a dream of making foods that were "better for the planet." Read this week's review »
