Here’s one I got in the Jason’s Market on the first floor of the Taipei 101 in Taiwan last November. I believe this World O’Noodles line is from a big grocery store chain in Southeast Asia – not 100% sure on that, but pretty sure. Garlic Mi Goreng? Oh yeah – sign me up! I’m hoping that this will be a delightful and delicious instant from Indonesia. Let’s have a look at this World O’Noodle variety.

The noodle block.
A dual sachet of dry seasonings.

A triple sachet (from left to right) seasoned oil, chilli sauce, sweet soy sauce.
The three sachet contents co mingling.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, kerapuk aci, fried egg, manis pedas and fried onion. First, the noodles have a good chew and round shape. The flavor is definitely classic Indonesian instant mi goreng – with a very identifiable garlic taste to it. Moreover, the garlic doesn’t overwhelm; it hangs out and let’s you know it is there without crashing the party. In conclusion, definitely one to try if you see it. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9557428000880.
