Yep – another re-review! But this one’s very special – i haven’t had this in a few years and I hope after reading and seeing, this stuff you’ll be ready and even dying to try it. This, my friend, is one of the finest instant noodle varieties I’ve ever had. Thanks to Jim C. for contacting Empire International, distributor of these and sending samples!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). These noodles are drained and then you stir the seasonings in. Also, notice Empire International’s info in the lower left.
Here are the noodles before cooking. Good stuff!
On the left is dry seasoning, on the right, chili powder. Notice the little guy by the pepper? Who is that guy? I wonder if he has a name. When they introduced ZIP codes, the US Postal Service had a little guy they invented named ‘Mr. ZIP.’ Looks kind of like him.
On the left, we have seasoned oil which contains oil and onion. On the right kecap manis, which is a sweet soy sauce – this really contributes to the flavor.
Clockwise from top left, chili powder, powder seasoning, kecap manis and finally seasoned oil.

Wow – this stuff is so tasty. It’ a little sweet, a little spicy and very tasty. I love it – can’t get enough of it and give it 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – this is one of the wonders of the instant noodle world! Awesome! Get it here!
Okay this is really strange – never heard of this guy before.
