#1173: Pop Bihun Spesial Goreng Spesial

Here’s another one my friend from Indonesia sent me – thanks! This is a departure from the norm for me – very rarely have I had Indonesian varieties of rice noodles. I think I’ve had them maybe thrice before. This one’s by the Indofoods people – makers of Indomie Mi Goreng. Let’s see how it translates to a rice noodle variety!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

A very dense, tight block of thin rice noodles.

The dry ingredient sachet. Fried onion on the left and seasoning base on the right.

Powder seasoning.

Some fried onion.

The liquid sachet. Chili sauce on the left and sweet soy sauce with oil on the right.

Here’s the chili sauce and the soy sauce and oil.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Sauteed Walla Walla sweet onion, Fresno peppers, shrimp, baked chicken with garlic salt and a fried egg. The noodles are thin and chewy. They tend to clump together.and don’t want to separate. The flavor is excellent – a nice sweet and spicy thing going on, and the added little crunch of the fried onion is really nice. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 089686038613.
