#863: Indomie Mi Keriting Goreng Spesial (Special Fried Curly Noodles)

2012_9_10_863_001

Here’s something special! This is the version of the special fried curly noodles that they get in Indonesia! What’s funny is that it looks like the date on the front is today! The special fried curly noodles we get here in the US from Indomie tops my Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list. Let’s give these a try.

Here’s the back of the packaging. Click to enlarge.

Otis the Pug looks on.

Then he ponders the Star Trek episode we watched  last night in which Mr. Spock says ‘logic is a wreath of pretty flowers that smell bad.’

The noodle block.

On the left are the dehydrated veggies and on the right is the seasoning powder.

From the back of the packaging, I think the round slices are pieces of chicken ball.

Here’s the seasoning powder.

The liquid packets: seasoned oil, chili sauce and sweet soy sauce.

Here’s the seasoned oil…

Here’s the sweet soy sauce and chili sauce.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onion, Fresno chili peppers, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), two fried eggs with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some Dua Belibis chili sauce. The noodles and broad and flat – deiniftely different than the usual Indomie noodles. The flavor is spicy and sweet and wonderful. This is much like the one we get here, but with a little nicer veggies. Perfect. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. I have heard that they may be getting rid of the Special Curly or the Special Grilled Chicken flavors soon. hope not! UPC bar code 089686040647 – the one I reviewed here was sent to me special by Indomie from Jakarta, Indonesia. You can get the export version, thought it is tough to find – here.

Hey you Luxembourgers! Indomie’s coming your way soon!

So Nigeria’s film industry (Nollywood), makes a lot of films and here’s a trailer for one of them. A lot of yelling and bits of english in there.

Products cooked according to package instructions. Product reviews done prior to adding any additional ingredients.

    Big fan of Indomie here, but the Special version used to be my favorite when I was 12 years old and living in Saudi Arabia with my family. The vegetables and Soy Sauce really makes this one for me. I would make it into stir noodles (no broth). Cook the noodles, drain the water, then chuck all the spices and oils in and mix it up. Absolutely wonderful!

    I am so glad to see this on your site, it’s a blast of nostalgia. The special noodles were available in Saudi Arabia for roughly 2 years, after which it was discontinued. We still get the fried noodles, curry flavour, veg flavour and chicken flavour though.

    I moved to Indonesia recently and have been completely overwhelmed by the aisles of instant noodles. My new mission is to try your top ten. Thanks Ramen Rater!
