Great Value from the Oriental Emporium - Abbey Street

I called into the Oriental Emporium on Abbey Street today on my way home from work so that I could pick up some of their thin-sliced frozen lamb for a stir-fry. I was really pleased with the good value that the Emporium offers on frozen meats. For a total spend of E10.90 I got the following:

2 large chicken breasts, frozen, E2.50 approx
400g thin sliced frozen lamb, E4
Small box of frozen, cooked, peeled prawns, E3.50
I packet of instant corn and ham soup 90c.

So for my money I was able to buy enough meat to make 3 meals for 2 (or 6 portions) and a pot of soup. I realise that the chicken can't be of the best organic quality for the price (E4.50 per kg) but I'm sick of paying the ever-increasing prices that the major retailers are charging.
