#2075: Mi Sedaap Mi Segera Mi Goreng Ayam Krispi

Time for some mi goreng! So this is another one I found at the Uwajimaya in Renton, WA by where my son goes to Pokemon League. Today’s a weird day; the local power company has been going from apartment building to apartment building and repairing these big green power boxes outside. I’m guessing that the power could go out at any minute! I guess We’ll see – let’s get started!

Detail of the distributor’s sticker (click to enlarge).Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). To prepare, add noodle block to a pot of water and boil for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in powder and liquid ingredients and stir. Sprinkle crispi bits on top. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder base.

A light powder.

A triple sachet – from left to right, seasoned oil, sweet chilli sauce and sweet soy sauce.

The liquid mingling together.

The krispi garnish sachet.

Lots of little bits!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added kerapuk aci, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, baked chicken, fried egg and coriander. The noodles have a nice gauge and mouthfeel. The flavor is a kind of sweet and spicy barbecue chicken taste which was very good although a little sweeter than expected. The crispy element of the garnish was good, however in lieu of quantity, less pieces that were larger would have been better I think. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8998866803809.

#2052: Indomie Pop Mie Mi Instan Cup Rasa Ayam

A couple weeks ago, we took my son Andy to a special Pokemon card event south of here in Renton, Washington. We had some time to kill as he was battling other kids (he won all three battles – a sweep!), and we ended up noticing there was a Uwajimaya very closeby. I’d never been to this one, so we walked over. I was floored – ended up with a couple bagfuls of instant noodles I’d never seen around before which was really great! Anyways, this is one of them. Let’s check it out!

#1922: Mie Sedaap Instant Cup Mi Kuah Rasa Baso Spesial

The last of the Mi Sedaap varieties I got quite a while ago at Asian Food Center down on Aurora and 130th. Let’s crack this one open – so few Indonesian varieties cross my desk these days!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add all sachets into the cup and 300ml boiling water. Cover for 4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

A dual sachet – soup base on the left and chilli powder on the right.

The chilli powder atop the very powdery soup base.

Seasoned oil.

Has a little bit of a garlic beef scent.

The gurih powder.

Personally, I like this sprinkled on top.

The vegetables sachet.

Little beans and vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out nicely – good chew and texture and good quantity. The broth had a kind of gritty beefiness to it, vaguely stew-like. The little beans were definitely not to my liking and pulled it down quite a bit for me. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8998866200851.

The noodle block.

A dual sachet – fried onion and seasoning powder.

Fried onion to add at the very end.

Dry seasoning base.

A triple sachet! From left to right, seasoned oil, sweet chilli sauce and finally sweet soy sauce.

The three liquid seasonings co-mingling in a cup.

Miles woke up as I was starting to prep stuff so he joined me in the kitchen to watch – he was very patient as he was ready for something to eat, but I kept telling him about what I was doing and he seemed interested!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added BonCabe Level 10 seasining, fried egg and coriander. The noodles are your standard Indomie fare – light on the chew, standard instant gauge. But the oil, sweet soy sauce, chilli sauce and onions (oh yeah the dry seasoning too) all come together masterfully. It’s like a sweet, salty, spicy hint of crunchy broth-free symphony. Loved this stuff in a pack for years, Love it in a cup too. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686180657.
