#724: Meet The Manufacturer: Indomie Curly Noodle With Laksa & Chilli

So we start off Meet The Manufacturer: Indomie week with something new – most of the reviews I’ll be doing will come from a shipment of samples I received a few weeks back from Indonesia. Indofood sent them very kindly and I want to thank them again for their generosity. So here we go with something completely different! Read the interview I did with Indomie here!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). This one’s not a dry noodle but a soup.

Ate a couple of the little crumbs that were in the bottom of the bag raw – tasty!

This is a liquid soup base.

Smells nice!

Here’s the dry stuff. Says it’s tofu, veggies and shrimps!

Quite a bit of it too – should be good!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added a little bit of store brand stir-fry vegetables. The noodles are wonderful – the same as what you find in the other Indomie ‘Special’ varieties that you can get over here. The flavor was not what I expected. It was light and mellow – kind of like a coconut cream with a light hint of chilli and light sweetness as well as some spices. It was bland in comparison to other Indomie flavors I’ve had. The garnish is great – little tofu bits are really good. This was a definite departure from what I’m used to with Indomie’s offerings and I am really curious to see what else I’ll find during this week of samplings! This was a nice, light noodle soup with some exotic tones. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686040203 .

Watch this all the way through – it’s really amazing how fast the skillet gets moving! They’re making Nasi Goreng (fried rice I believe) in Indonesia!
