#923: Ibumie Penang LadMee Hot Pepper Flavour Instant Noodle

Hey awesome! Went to 99 Ranch yesterday and found a couple I hadn’t reviewed before! With such a drought of new things to review, a couple 69 cent packs were a nice surprise! So here’s Ibumie LadMee from Malaysia!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

Here’s the noodle block.

Here’s an unlabeled largish packet.

A fine, light powder.

Now here’s where it’s kind of confusing; wasn’t the last packet seasoning powder?

This one definitely has a strong pepper taste to it; not chili pepper but more attune to black pepper.

Oil on the left and sweet soy sauce on the right.

They mingle in the cup nicely.

Andy wanted to get some new kinds to try – so he dug into his piggy bank and picked all these out himself.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken with Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning, stir fry veggies and some Dua Belibis chili sauce. The noodles are nice – good chew to them and well mannered insofar as they aren’t cheap or spongy. The broth is interesting; it has a strong pepper taste – not the chili kind but the salt and pepper kind. It’s an interesting experience; not like another black pepper flavored instant I had before but all to its own. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 850248004045 .

This is a pretty odd TV commercial – I like it!
