#2075: Mi Sedaap Mi Segera Mi Goreng Ayam Krispi

Time for some mi goreng! So this is another one I found at the Uwajimaya in Renton, WA by where my son goes to Pokemon League. Today’s a weird day; the local power company has been going from apartment building to apartment building and repairing these big green power boxes outside. I’m guessing that the power could go out at any minute! I guess We’ll see – let’s get started!

A triple sachet – from left to right, seasoned oil, sweet chilli sauce and sweet soy sauce.

The liquid mingling together.

Lots of little bits!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added kerapuk aci, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, baked chicken, fried egg and coriander. The noodles have a nice gauge and mouthfeel. The flavor is a kind of sweet and spicy barbecue chicken taste which was very good although a little sweeter than expected. The crispy element of the garnish was good, however in lieu of quantity, less pieces that were larger would have been better I think. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8998866803809.

#2068: Maggi Fusian Special Edition Ow… Ow… Spicy Cow Flavour Mi Goreng

First off, I must thank Jen from Australia for sending this real gem of an instant noodle. I mean come on – I think anyone reading the name of this variety definitely should thank her. Ow… Ow… Spicy Cow – I mean that’s awesome. This one is made in Malaysia, however it’s for the Australia/New Zealand market. Without further ado, let’s crack it open and get punished by the spicy cow.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, break noodle block into quarters and add to 375ml boiling water – cook for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. stir well and enjoy!

Behold – the spicy cow spice mix.

Wonder if it will be spicy.

A dual sachet – seasoned oil on the left and sweet soy sauce on the right.

The liquid co-mingle together.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, hard boiled eggs and chilli flake. The noodles came out nicely – a little thicker than the standard instant and a nice chewiness. The flavor was indeed spicy, but probably accessible for those who like a bit of fire but not to burn down their palate. It was a nice sweet and beef taste that I honestly found hard to stop eating. The kind of mi goreng I adore. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#2042: Suimin Noodles Mi Goreng

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.

Powdery and light.

A liquid sachet.

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.

#1958: IbuRamen Mi Goreng Bento Noodles In A Box Curry Masala Flavor


This is the last of the IbuRamen tray varieties I’ve seen available. I really didn’t care for the other two, but hey, it’s curry day! Let’s see how this one fares with a curry fanatic.

The noodle block.

This is an interesting anomaly. First, yes – it says Mexi-Ramen. But second, this is a dual-sachet labeled sachet – but it only has one seasoning inside! Not sure if I’ve ever seen this before.

A dark powder.

A vegetables sachet.

Big ol’ shallots!

Okay I screwed up here – I forgot to take a picture of the liquid sachet.

A final sachet.

A light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp and carved squid. The noodles were very standard of gauge and chew. The flavor on this one was really quite good! A kind of creamy curry works very nicely. The fried shallot is a super nice bonus as well. Very pleased to find that I like one of these varieties – the other rated very poorly. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 850248004113.
