Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, tofu puff and fried garlic. The noodles are definitely on the gritty as well as mushy side in this one which I found interesting and somewhat odd. Nonetheless, they’re actually not bad in this situation. The broth is fascinating stuff (you know when I use ‘fascinating’ and ‘interesting’ in a review, I’m channeling Mr. Spock) insofar that it is a little spicy, but the spices that are flavoring the rest of it’s profile are very strange – although it tastes good to me. Finally to round it out, the vegetables hydrated well, and the TVP is prevalent and decently chewy. This is a really odd cup of noodles. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155001779.
Thanks again to Jen from Australia for sending this and myriad of other Australian varieties! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a chicken and sweet corn flavored instant noodle before. Let’s crack it open and see what we have here!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and some baked chicken. The noodles came out on the mushy side. Not extremely pleased with this. The broth was minimal but had an almost over herbed taste to it which I didn’t care for. The vegetables did hydrate very well. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155304269.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, baby corn and coriander. the noodles hydrated decently and had a nice bounce to them. The broth was good, but I really can’t say they seemed like a very strong curry in any way. Did taste good though. The hydrateables hydrated well. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310135301268.
Another one sent by Jen from Australia – thanks again! So a favorite destination of Australian tourists is Bali and Borneo – pretty nearby and full of tasty fare. One such common food you’ll find in these places is mi goreng, or fried noodles. Usually a cooked and drain noodle is stir fried and condiments such as sweet chilli sauce and sweet soy sauce are added as well and vegetables and meats. Let’s see how this cup variety of mi goreng tastes.
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add boiling water to fill line for 3 minutes. Drain off water and add in sachet contents. Stir thoroughly and enjoy!
Has an interesting scent; don’t know what to make of it.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried egg, large shrimp, a little coriander and fried garlic. The noodles have a good gauge and chew for a mi goreng instant. The taste… It’s probably the sweetest tasting mi goreng I’ve ever had; although it works pretty well. I also noticed there were little crunchy bits in there as well which was a nicety. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155000284.
Here’s the first review of the donations sent by Jen of Australia – thanks again! So this is a new brand to me – was hard not to type Sumin but it’s Suimin… Made in Australia! Also, it’s prawn and chicken flavored – something I’ve never come across before. Let’s give it a look!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chicken, prawn and coriander. The noodles in this one were way different. They were chewy, but oddly enough chewy like gum in a way. They weren’t bad mind you – they hydrated well and everything – but they were odd in texture. The broth smelled and tasted like chicken and prawn which was very interesting. Not a bad little cup of noodles! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155302265.
