Nice reviews, I have been following this site for 3+ years, keep it up! The orange band on the front of your PLA review reads: "Individual Soldier Self Heating Meal"
The first entree you ate was "Self Heating Pickled Cabbage Meat Fried Rice" meaning pork most likely.
The second entree was "Self Heating (something*) Beef Fried Rice"
The hot sauce reads "Fragrant Spicy Sauce"

First off, welcome to the forums!
So glad you enjoy this site, and thank you for the kind words on my little thread here. I have had so much fun with it.
That is fantastic! Thank you also for those translations! Anything you may see that you can translate for any of us, please do! We so very much appreciate it.
Hmm that Pickled Cabbage Meat Fried Rice was fantastic with the Fragrant Spicy Sauce! I will always remember that meal.
And that Beef Fried Rice was even more enjoyable! Both entrees were truly fantastic, and I can't wait until I can get some more Individual Soldier Self Heating Meals again in the future. I shall share those experiences here!
ratattoo: My adventurous taste buds always draw me back to this thread, and any other about Asian rations...
I'm old enough, and my stomach is been through enough, that none of these make me terribly leery.
Fear not. What do you have to lose other than your life. And face it… whole military commands eat this stuff on a regular basis.
When and if I can afford it, I'm going to have to look for a couple of the full PLA ones on the Bay, and the Indonesian one in a current thread looks awfully good as well...
It's really cool that you checked this one out more than once, that inspires me to get back to work with something new on it very soon here!
I am happy to try out literally any food - I will try ANYTHING! Well, as long as it's not Shrimp, Crab, or Lobster because sadly I developed a deadly allergy to those around the age of 15 (At least I could enjoy them in my youth).
That's right! In the exploration of documentation in this field - I do not fear much unless it is obviously spoiled food. If it looks good, or even good enough, I will eat it!
Those PLA Rations are awesome - I need to buy the 4 full sized ones off Ebay too! When I do, I shall do a review of each on this thread!
