This is the second of the two Mie Goreng Indonesia cup varieties Mamee Double-Decker sent me for Meet The Manufacturer. The first one was really good! This one sounds good too. Sambal is spicy stuff! I like spicy. Today before I do the review, I’m going to trek up to our local Indonesian grocery Waroeng Jajanan. They clued me in about a couple of great additions to mie goreng – Kerapuk Aci and BonCabe! Kerapuk Aci is a big round Indonesian cracker made with tapioca and other ingredients. It’s crunchy and goes really well with mie goreng when I’ve made it in the past. BonCabe is a spicy chilli seasoning – bits of chilli powder, flake, some salt and crunchy bits as well as other spices are in it and it’s great stuff! Off I go to the Indonesian grocery to find some additions…
I’m back! So the area I live in is called the Edmonds International District. Lots of great stores to get stuff for noodles! They put up these new lanterns and signs all over the place – it’s official! Pretty cool. Got what I was looking for at Waroeng Jajanan and so I begin the preparation – let’s give this one a try!
Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add boiling water to inner line and let sit for 3 minutes. Using the holes in the lid, drain off the water. Add contents of the sachets (powder and liquid) and stir well. Add garnish and enjoy!

An included fork! These are neat ones – they slide and click.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Rotary Kerapuk Aci, BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning, hard boiled egg, Fresno chilli pepper, sweet onion, ABC Manis Pedas and shrimp. The noodles came out so nicely – they have a great character of chew and whilst not in a broth, they’re not dry after being drained. The flavor is wonderful – spicy and tasty with that sweet-hot kick I love about mie goreng. The crunchy bits rounds everything out soundly. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9555022301617.
