When I climbed Kilimanjaro in 1999 the backpacking meals tasted nothing like this!
Peak Refuel’s Chicken Coconut Curry is so delicious. Tender chunks of chicken meat, rice, large pieces of separately seasoned carrots and a sublime coconut curry sauce.
I add hot red pepper flakes to taste for a spicy kick before rehydrating. Consider adding a little packet of that!
Pro tip…remember to take the desiccant packet out before adding the hot water.
First, let me preface my remarks with the fact that I do NOT like coconut. I bought the meal pack more or less to see if I would like it, or not. Because of the obvious coconut taste, I don't plan to purchase this one again. That said, that's a taste preference on my part & does not reflect at all on the quality of the meal. Despite not enjoying the taste, I did give the meal a 5-star rating because it prepped/heated easily, rehydrated very evenly (no soggy spots one place & hard, dry ones in others), the meat texture was just like eating fresh-cooked meat (not chewy or crumbly/grainy) and, even dividing the pouch into 2 meals, it was quite filling. If you're someone who enjoys coconut, I would definitely recommend this high-quality meal.
Really good! Personally I prefer a few of the other recipes but great to change it up. Had some of these on the Kalalau trail in Kauai and it felt very fitting.
Very tasty and was actually cooked thoroughly in the allotted time.
"I've tried all of the meals and its hard to pick my favorite, but if I had to pick one, this is it!"
I absolutely loved it. Chicken was tender, carrots were sweet and sauce was delicious.
My first Peak Refuel...loved this one!
Absolutely delicious.. Camping in Bodega Bay and this was perfect.
Close to home made.
Both me and my wife's favorite.
The flavor is awesome, but the rice needs a little extra time in the bag.
Very good and filling. It's in my top five.
Easy to order, arrived timely, well packaged and just we we were looking for.
The chicken coconut curry was amazing. It honestly is better than some carryout I've had. To be able to enjoy that, while sitting out a September rainstorm elk hunting was priceless. I will definitely purchase again.
For what it is I can not complain. Could definitely have a deeper curry flavor but I would eat this any day in the mountains for sure.
Probably the best freeze dried meal I have ever had
My wife and I split this for lunch, I am traditionally not a curry fan but I truly enjoyed this. For years I purchased a popular competitor & while I enjoyed their product - Peak Refuel is on a whole nother level, I compare it to ordering out but without having to leaving your campsite.
Tastes great, easy prep, and light weight.
Very good food, i plan to use this hiking in the back country in Alaska on my vacation. Well thats the plan.
Great flavor, good texture, very filling.
Just ordered 3 more packages.
This is by far the best meal in a pouch I’ve ever had. The flavors are all there. The texture is perfect. I would put this up against any restaurant quality curry. This is completely happy food. 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Peak Refuel is hands down the best backpacking meal I've ever had! They taste so good, I'd eat them for a "nice" dinner at home. The coconut curry is probably my favorite, but I haven't had a single bad tasting meal from Peak.
Easy-to-carry fast food with lots of calories to support my climb to the top.
Very convenient and portable food, lightweight design, ideal for mountain climbing, give your backpack to reduce the burden, and let you get enough calories to climb the peak.
Took this meal (and other refuels) on a 4 day alpine climbing trip. 50ish miles with 6,000 feet of elevation gain and 2,000 feet of loss.
This was the first time using these products and as with most new items I had some apprehension about trying them out in the backcountry. Suffice it to say my fears were not realized. These meals are great. I really liked this curry, it had great flavor and even my friend who doesn't like most freeze dried meals from other companies really liked the curry.
Also, as I stated the trip was pretty strenuous with heavy packs, bush whacking, boulder hopping, side hilling on loose scree, etc. These meals allowed me to cut back on the food I brought since they are calorically dense and have a lot of other nutrients. After a long day, these seemed to help with recovery as I was not sore or tired the next day. Also, I think that amount of food is just right. Some other freeze dried meals are these massive amounts of rice or pasta that takes some serious effort to get through. These meals seemed to be portioned well in that you don't really want any less or more.
The bottom line is I will definitely be ordering more.
I am not a curry fan but tried this meal and was amazed at the great flavor. My very picky wife ate half the package which confirms how good this meal is!
Not really my thing.
Yep. This is the stuff. After years of mediocre freeze dried meals, I’ve finally found a brand so good it’s worth sticking to! Can’t say enough good about this curry meal or any of PEAK’s meals! The texture and taste blow my mind every bite—it’s like you’re eating home-cooked food. Easy to prep, nice website, packaging, shipping time, customer service—like I said, this is the one.
We're not a fan of freeze-dried meals in general but this is yummy. We'll take this one again on any trip.
My husband and I tried the chicken coconut curry and it blew our minds how close to a restaurant style taste it had! Absolutely amazing! We also tried the stroganoff and that was great and had that homemade taste too!! We're hooked!!
Delightful flavor and textures. I loved the creamy coconut curry flavor immensely, and it was loaded with chicken. This will be found with me on the trail again.
nice to have a tasty hot meal in the cold.
This was one of the best backcountry meals I’ve ever had. The flavor is incredible and very hearty. Highly recommended if you enjoy Thai food.
The BEST backcountry Thai Curry, other brands just can’t compete.
I had the coconut curry while camping and loved it! I ordered more and ate one for dinner instead of going out. It’s actually as good as curry you’d get at a restaurant!
I have always been a fan of Thai Food, so I was especially stoked when I saw PEAK had made the Chicken Coconut Curry! Fresh food, flavor was incredible, and it was extremely satisfying after a long day hiking the hills.
