Another one sent by my friend in Indonesia – thank you! A little translation. So it’s onion chicken flavor – rasa means flavor, bawang is onion and ayam chicken. Mi instan is instant noodle, but rebus? Rebus translated to boiled and here I think refers to the noodles being ‘cooking noodles.’ As I’ve mentioned in the past, what makes a noodle ‘instant’ is the fact that you can put the noodle block and seasonings in a bowl, add boiling water and then cover for a few minutes, stir and eat. Anyways, let’s check out this Indonesian variant.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free, but check for yourself.
The noodle block.
The dry seasonings sachet. Powder soup base on the left and chili powder on the right.
Chili powder atop the soup base powder.
Seasoned oil sachet.
Has a strong onion scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken baked with Lindberg-Snider Porterhouse & Roast Seasoning (I know, but it’s got a lot of sage in it and works great with chicken), red, yellow and orange bell pepper, Walla Walla sweet onion and hard boiled egg. The noodles are pretty average – not amazing buut they’re good. The broth is nice and warming with a touch of spiciness, and a great onion and chicken flavor. The seasoned oil gives it a little oiliness that is perfect. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 8992388111237.
