Wouldn’t it be great if you could get take-out asian food delivered to your campsite on backpacking trips that has some kick to it and tastes fresh?
Now you can. The gourmet dehydrated backpacking food company Good To-Go has added two more gluten-free meals to their backcountry dinner menu:
I tried them out on a two-night backpacking trip and they’re both great.
Good To-Go’s Pad Thai contains rice noodles, bean sprouts, carrots, lime, eggs, peanut butter, and shrimp sauce and tastes exactly like the Pad Thai you’d get at a Thai restaurant.
Their new dehydrated Indian Vegetable Korma meal is also delicious, containing numerous spices, braised vegetables, and basmati rice. Moderately spiced, it tastes freshly made and has a lingering kick.
The only down side is that G00d To-Go meals take 20 minutes to rehydrate and that the single serving packages aren’t really enough for one meal. While Good To-Go sells larger two serving packages, I stretch their single serving meals by eating them with a cup of minute rice that I rehydrate separately and then mix into the Good To-Go package. The single serving packages have enough extra sauce in them that it covers the extra rice and provides me with enough food to feel completely satisfied.
