During the trip, I got a lot of instant noodles in Malaysia! Unfortunately on the journey home, the baggage handlers are moving fast and not super worried about luggage with instant noodle in them, so some cups got a little banged up. This one has been on my list to find for a long time – Indomie’s Pop Mie. It’s a basic chicken noodle cup, but it’s been hard to find it or get a sample. Well, here it is! Let’s have a look at Pop Mie and give it a try! I should mention also that this is my first instant noodle I’ve had since September 26th – so long!

The noodle block.
A dual sachet of seasoning powder on the left and chilli powder on the right.
The chilli powder atop the seasoning base. Has a strong chicken scent.
Finished (lick image to enlarge). Added grilled chicken and chilli paddi from Malaysia. The noodles came out soft and quite nicely – very comfort food texture. The broth has a good chicken flavor and that little bit of chilli powder was a nice touch. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 089686060027.
