#1737: Mie Sedaap Instant Cup Mi Goreng

It’s been really hard to find new varieties from Indonesia lately and I was really stoked to find a total of four of them the other day! I always try to keep things mixed up – reviewing a different product from a different country every day if possible. It can be tough sometimes but lately I’ve been ending up with quite a range of varieties which is great. Anyways, let’s check out this one from Indonesia!

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, take everything out. Add in the vegetables sachet and fill to line with boiling water and let steep covered for 4 minutes. Poke holes in the lid and use to drain off water. Add in contents of remaining sachets except fried onions. Stir well and then garnish with fried onion. Enjoy!

Lots of little bits of greenery.

The garnish sachet.

Crunchy fried onion.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added white onion, kerupuk aci, shrimp and lime. The noodles were round in nature and rather light. The flavor leaned more towards the sweet and the oiliness made it very slippery. I detected a light spiciness to it. The fried onion was very good. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8998866200813.

#1721: Salam Mie Mi Goreng Dengan Abon

Here’s the second of two Salam Mie products I got at the Econsave we visited in Butterworth, Malaysia during our special trip to visit the makers of MyKuali last October. I’ve seen a lot of people commenting on the other variety lately, so I thought I’d give this one a try. Abon is a powdered meat – usually pork or beef (in this case beef) seasoned with spices. Sounds good – from what I see, it’s used as a topping like fish floss is used on Chinese porridge. Anyways, let’s check out this Salam Mie Mi Goreng Abon!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, boil noodles in 400ml water for 3 minutes. While boiling, put contents of the dry dual sachets onto a plate and combine. Drain noodles and combine on plate with the ingredients. Sprinkle contents of sapi abon sachet on top. Enjoy!

Here we have the two liquids co-mingling.

The abon sachet.

Shredded beef and fried onion.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added kerupuk aci, hard boiled egg, white onion and bell pepper. The noodles have a good gauge and chewiness that is exactly what I expect from an Indonesian mi goreng. The flavor is very sweet from the kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and has a nice and light oiliness. The chilli powder gives things a light kick and the abon mixture has a nice added flavor. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 8992731101557.

#1706: Maggi Hot Cup Goreng Perencah Cili Fiesta

Here’s one I got on my trip to Malaysia last October! I was really keen on getting something like this while over there – anything that has some kind of promotion for a contest or sports event – or movies and cartoons – are very fascinating to me, not only because that’s not something you really see here on instant noodle products, but that the possibility of finding an export version here is slim to none. This one mentions Brazil on it – football! Let’s have a look inside and give ‘er a try!

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, take out sachets and fork. Add boiling water to fill line and steep 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachets and stir. Enjoy!

The flavor was very good – excellent sweetness from the sweet soy sauce and a little fire as well. The noodles has a very good oiliness to them as well. Excellent mi goreng! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 9556001185198.
