#876: Mi Instan Sarimi Soto Koya Pedasss

This one was sent by a friend in Jakarta, Indonesia – thank you! What a day – so around 11am, people started flooding into the site! LifeHacker ran a story about The Ramen Rater and literally thousand of people have checked out the blog. Well, here’s one from Indonesia – Soto Koya Pedass. Pedas means spicy, so I guess Pedass means really spicy or it could be a nod to Turturro in The Big Lebowski. I have a feeling it just means really spicy. I’ve seen this kind of thing before – extra letters = extra emphasis, at least in Indonesian. Well, let’s dig in to this one!

Here’s one of the new varieties sent by a friend in Jakarta, Indonesia – thank you! After trying so many Indonesian instant noodles, it looks like the flavors are almost backwards – Rasa means flavor, kari means curry and spesial means, well, special. Flavor curry special? Special curry flavor! It’s also a big pack and looks like it’s a soup. Well, let’s give it a try.
