In the last day, lots of people have been coming to The Ramen Rater from Indonesia! One person who commented via the facebook page said”you should try this one fried noddle, it has black pepper flavour. will not disappoint you :)” (for those wondering, this is friend black pepper chicken flavor noodles). I looked through the box of varieties my friend in Jakarta sent me and lo and behold, I had it in there! Thank you very much! Let’s check this one out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free.
These noodles are a little wider than most I’ve seen from Indonesia.
The dry powder packets. Chili powder on the left, seasoning base on the right.
Here you see the red chili powder atop the seasoning base.
The liquid ingredients packet.
Shallot oil and sweet soy sauce.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added fried egg, Vidalia sweet onion, red bell pepper and sauteed beef. The noodles are flatter and broader than most Indonesian varieties. They have a nice chew and texture. The flavor is great – a strong black pepper component along with a sweet and salty chicken and sweet soy flavor. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8888327831871.
