Here’s one of the new varieties sent by a friend in Jakarta, Indonesia – thank you! After trying so many Indonesian instant noodles, it looks like the flavors are almost backwards – Rasa means flavor, kari means curry and spesial means, well, special. Flavor curry special? Special curry flavor! It’s also a big pack and looks like it’s a soup. Well, let’s give it a try.
Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge). Was a little tough scanning this one – sorry. Note it calls for 500cc of water – never have I seen an Indonesian variety call for so much water – unless it was to be drained off!
Here’s part of the noodle block. As these traveled from Indonesia, they had a couple bumps along the way. Did really good for the most part!
Seasoning powder on left and chili powder on the right.
Here they are with the chili powder on top.
I have a feeling this is all going to be quite good!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies – some big pieces of onions as well, and a couple fried eggs with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Tabasco Buffalo Style hot saume on top. The noodles are very good – very fluffy and happy. The broth is great – has a nice curry flavor and a nice overall consistency. This stuff is perfect if you want a lot of curry noodles! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686017724 .
