I’ve been really curious about this one, a brothless variety. This is made in the same way as mi goreng, however is more along the lines of what would be called a stir noodle or dry noodle. The looks from the package is interesting – I see peanuts! Peppers! Let’s crack it open and have a look!
Detail of the outwer wraps (click image to enlarge). Unsure as to whether there is any meat in this one. To prepare, take everything out but the noodle block. Add boiling water and cover for 4 minutes. Drain. Add in powder and liquid sachets and stir. Sprinkle with peanut/pepper mix and enjoy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I really liked the texture of the noodles – slightly thinner gauge than many and a very good texture. The flavor of the noodles is chicken – and then strong heat! It’s definitely a different kind of heat – I mean it’s hot but kind of like a hot cinnamon without the cinnamon taste to it; definitely something new for me. The peanuts and peppers mix was really good as a garnish – fresh peanuts and more pepper to fire things up. I’m impressed with this one – very premium and quite good! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Most Chinese foods here in the USA are ‘Americanized’ to fit more with the American palate. In this video, we see people who aren’t used to the real thing. Let’s see how they handle Sichuan food!
