#733: Meet The Manufacturer – Indomie Mi Instan Rasa Soto Betawi Khas Jakarta

Some of you might be saying ‘hey it’s Thursday; didn’t Meet The Manufacturer week start on Wednesday last week?’ Well, yeah but I skipped two days of reviewing so gotta make those up – only fair. So here we have Soto Betawi. Wikipedia has this to say about it:

Betawi soto, made of beef or beef offal, cooked in a whitish cow milk or coconut milk broth, with fried potato and tomato.

Dang I’m out of beef. Ah well – let’s give this a try!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

The noodles – standard gauge.

Dry seasoning – powdered seasoning on the left and chili powder on the right.

Here’s the powder seasoning and chili powder.

The wets : seasoned oil on the left and sweet soy sauce on the right.

Here’s both of them in one little sake cup.

Fried onions to put on top!

These are such a nice addition.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some local veggies, a little kizami shoga (pickled ginger), a couple of Blue Diamond Sea Salt Almonds and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. Of the Indomie soups, I will have to say this is one of my favorites so far. The noodles are good as always, and the broth has a nice beef flavor and rich depth to it. I really like how the soup isn’t thick but has the flavor of somegthing that you would imagine to be. What you end up with is a very flavorful noodle soup with good character. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

A quick tour of Jakarta’s great sights!
