#1406: La Fonte Spaghetti with Mushroom Sauce

Here’s another one sent by a friend in Indonesia – thank you! La Fonte is a line by Indofood, makers of Indomie. I don’t usually review boxed instants like this but this one’s really interesting. I reviewed a different one a while back and though I ought to give this one a try. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains chicken broth. To prepare, boil 550ml water. Cook noodles for 4 minutes, then drain. Put noodles on a plate and add contents of sauce sachet. Enjoy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Sampled the noodles and sauce, then added mushroom and minced beef that was sauteed with garlic and Worcestershire sauce. The noodles were good – excellent gauge and were your standard spaghetti noodle. The sauce was nice and sweet with a strong tomato flavor. The mushrooms were of good quality. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

#1109: La Fonte Spaghetti With Bolognese Sauce

You’re probably wondering what the deal is here. Well, I’ll tell you! These were sent along with a slew of other Indonesian (yep – it’s from Indonesia!) instant noodles. These are made by Indofood, the same company that makes Indomie! They only take 4 minutes to make, and I think they’re unique enough that I’d review them. Thank you to my friend from Indonesia for sending me noodles I could never lay my hands on here! Let’s check ’em out!

Spaghetti noodles. Definitely a single serving.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, Vidalia sweet onion and red bell pepper sauteed with a little garlic salt. The noodles are what they claim to be – pretty standard spaghetti. The have a nice color and chew. The flavor’s great – the sauce has lots of little bits of what I figure it ground beef and has a nice tomato flavor with a little sweetness. Excellent – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 8888900600115.

Looks like a school assignment where students make a commercial for this product. Pretty nice!
