#1232: GaGa Mie Gepeng Kuah Rasa Ayam Bawang Pedas (Spicy Garlic Sauce Chicken)

After looking at the new The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Indonesian Instant Noodles Of All Time 2013 Edition and talking with people from around the world about it all week, I felt like having some Indonesian noodles! To translate, rasa means flavor, bawang is garlic, ayam is chicken and pedas means spicy. Let’s give this one a try!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to me be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 350cc water. Add noodles and cook 3 minutes, stirring gently. Put seasonings in a bowl. Pour broth and noodles into bowl, stir, and you’re done.

This is the noodle block – the package took 60+ days via seamail to get here so it got a little beat up.

Dry powder sachet.

Smells good!

Seasoned oil sachet.

I smell garlic!


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added fried egg, baked chicken with Lindberg-Snider Porterhouse & Roast seasoning, sweet onion, lime and Fresno chilli pepper. These noodles are good – a little broader and have a nice texture much like egg noodles. The broth is good – a little salty though. Has a great chicken flavor with a rich flavor and spiciness. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8888327831826.

Here’s a short video about cooking in Indonesia. Lots of really flavorful ingredients come together in Indonesian food.
