#1439: Adabi Mi Segera Mi Goreng Pedas Instant Noodles


Here’s the last of the Adabi varieties I received from Annie T. of MyKuali in Malaysia – thank you! It’s a wet and rainy day outside this morning. It started raining just before 7am and has been ever since! In northwest Washington state, we sometimes get a big dump of rain in the summertime – even got some thunder! You can see how easily amused I am! Anyways, spicy mi goreng sounds like a nice accompaniment for the day’s weather. Let’s have a look at this one.

I’d like to take a second to send my condolences to the people and families affected by the tragedy of flight MH17. May they find peace and justice.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).  Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 400ml water and add noodle block. Cook for 2-3 minutes until soft. Drain then add contents of sachet and combine. Enjoy!

Has a very nice sweet and spicy scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp sauteed with soy sauce, garlic and BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning, lime, sweet onion and hard boiled egg with a dusting of BonCabe. The noodles have a good gauge and chewiness. The flavor is a little bit or sweetness and a strong spiciness along with some saltiness. These flavors combine together nicely and play well together for the palate. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9556252283506.

#1398: Nissin Fried Noodles Specialist Tom Yam Mee Goreng Flavour

Here’s another one that Annie T. over at MyKuali sent me – thank you very much! This looks interesting; a fusion of Tom Yam and Mee Goreng? Tom Yam is a spicy, citrus infused soup that”s very popular in Southeast Asia, Thailand in particular. Very curious about this one – let”s have a look inside.

Here”s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, boil noodles in 450ml water. Drain. add contents of sachets and stir. Enjoy! To make this one, I thought I”d try out the Rapid Ramen Cooker!

The noodle block.

The powder seasoning sachet.

A light powder.

The oil sachet.

Has a citrus scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). What’s neat about the Rapid Ramen Cooker is that not only can you cook instant noodles in it, but you can eat them out of it. Added shrimp, squid, lime, sweet onion and Texas Pete Sriracha Cha! chilli sauce. The noodles are exactly what you’d expect from a good instant; nice chew and gauge. The flavor is very strong; citrus and spiciness. I’m a big fan of Mi Goreng as well as Tom Yam, but this is a little odd. I miss the broth! Kind of comes across as over seasoned to me. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 88882796660000.

#1390: Indomie Mi Goreng Rasa Iga Penyet

Here’s one I’ve been waiting for just the right day to try. Iga Penyet is a dish which is extremely popular in Jakarta, Indonesia. But, exactly what is it? Well, from looking around, I found that it translates to Smashed Beef Ribs ala Jakarta. I’ve also seen it referred to as Fried Beef Ribs. Either way, beef ribs and a spicy sambal sauce are involved, as well as garlic. I didn’t have any beef ribs to cook alongside, but I’ll figure something out – let’s check out this Indomie Iga Penyet!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it contains meat so check for yourself. To prepare, boil 400ml water. Add the noodle block and cook for 3 minutes. While it cooks, put sachet contents in a bowl. When done, drain the noodles. Transfer to bowl and stir until combined. Enjoy!

A dual dry ingredient sachet: seasoning base on the left, chilli powder on the right.

The chilli powder atop the seasoning base. Notice the little bits intermixed in the base.

A dual sachet of liquid ingredients: seasoned oil on the left and sweet soy sauce (known as kecap manis) on the right.

Interesting. Has a nice beef scent.

Thick, black sweet soy sauce.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Sauteed some beef with Walla Walla sweet onion, minced garlic and BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning, and added a folded fried egg with some ABC manis pedas sauce. The noodles are classic Indomie – great texture and feel – nothing more, nothing less. The flavor is different; it’s got the sweetness and spiciness, but the beef taste is rich. It lingers. Definitely something different with this one and I can see why it’s popular. 4.75 out of 5..0 – worthy stuff!UPC bar code 089686043686.

Meet The Manufacturer: #1357: Mamee Mie Goreng Indonesia Spicy Sambal Flavour

This is the second of the two Mie Goreng Indonesia cup varieties Mamee Double-Decker sent me for Meet The Manufacturer. The first one was really good! This one sounds good too. Sambal is spicy stuff! I like spicy. Today before I do the review, I’m going to trek up to our local Indonesian grocery Waroeng Jajanan. They clued me in about a couple of great additions to mie goreng – Kerapuk Aci and BonCabe! Kerapuk Aci is a big round Indonesian cracker made with tapioca and other ingredients. It’s crunchy and goes really well with mie goreng when I’ve made it in the past. BonCabe is a spicy chilli seasoning – bits of chilli powder, flake, some salt and crunchy bits as well as other spices are in it and it’s great stuff! Off I go to the Indonesian grocery to find some additions…

I’m back! So the area I live in is called the Edmonds International District. Lots of great stores to get stuff for noodles! They put up these new lanterns and signs all over the place – it’s official! Pretty cool. Got what I was looking for at Waroeng Jajanan and so I begin the preparation – let’s give this one a try!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add boiling water to inner line and let sit for 3 minutes. Using the holes in the lid, drain off the water. Add contents of the sachets (powder and liquid) and stir well. Add garnish and enjoy!

Here’s the lid (click image to enlarge).

An included fork! These are neat ones – they slide and click.

A slightly granular powder.

A dual sachet of oil and sweet soy sauce on the left and chilli sauce on the right.

The garnish sachet.

Crunchy pieces!


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Rotary Kerapuk Aci, BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning, hard boiled egg, Fresno chilli pepper, sweet onion, ABC Manis Pedas and shrimp. The noodles came out so nicely – they have a great character of chew and whilst not in a broth, they’re not dry after being drained. The flavor is wonderful – spicy and tasty with that sweet-hot kick I love about mie goreng. The crunchy bits rounds everything out soundly. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9555022301617.
