This is the final one – the last one that my friend from Jakarta, Indonesia sent. These have been a lot of fun since there’s no way you can buy them here in the states! Awesome! Thanks again! So what does bawang mean? Onion. And what about kriuuk? Crunchy. Let’s try this out.
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).
A big chunk of the noodle block.
Bumbu? Seasoning powder!
Looks like a decent amount.
Liquid seasonings: seasoned oil, chili sauce and sweet soy sauce.
The seasoning oil has a nice onion aroma.
The chili sauce and sweet soy sauce.
Here’s the star of the show: the crunchy bits!
Kind of look like Rice Krispies, no? Well, they definitely end their resemblance with the visual – they’re spicy, crunchy little bits of enjoyment.
Thought I’d take a shot of them all together to really show what we have. This is a lot of extra stuff to go with a block of instant noodles; Indomie’s really quite unique in this.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added sweet onion, bell pepper, carrot, broccoli, green bean, water chestnut, baby corn, some baked chicken with Lindberg-Snider Red Baron BBQ Spice, a couple fried eggs with some Krazy Mixed Up salt, Dua Beliibis chili sauce and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are trademark Indomie – nice chew and good quantity. The flavor is nice – the sweet and spicy is there as well as a nice hit of onion. The kriuuk? Well, it’s crunchy and abundant – almost too much of it! Good stuff – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686059748 .
