Meet The Manufacturer: #1472: Ruski Chicken Masala Flavour Instant Fried Noodles

Mi Goreng! It sounds exotic, but it boils down to fried noodles. This is a rather unique one – I don’t think I’ve heard of a masala chicken dry noodle like this before, but it sounds pretty good! It’s been a while since I’ve had any mi goreng, and my son is here today and wants some so I thought why not. Let’s check it out!

As summer winds down, my thoughts return to the days when school’s ugly head would be rearing soon. My son Andy goes back to school September 3rd! Fourth grade… I will definitely say Fourth wasn’t the worst grade I experienced, although it was pretty bad. I’m really hoping he has a much better experience than I did. Here he is doing up a post about his new school stuff. I told him he needed to write some thoughts about his upcoming school year – he tried to weasel out of it, but I bribed him so it should be an interesting post. Quite a setup he’s got in his room – mostly hand me downs, but works for an aspiring blogger. Anyways, onward!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, ass noodles to a bowl and add 400cc boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Drain well. Add in sachet contents and stir until combined. Enjoy!

The noodles came out nicely – a little fluffy which was alright. The flavor was a definitely masala and chicken kind of thing that worked pretty well! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

#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!

The paste sachet.

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.
