Well hello there – extra hot! I like it spicy that’s for sure. Not a lot of varieties I’ve seen that are extra hot and also vegetarian. At least not having both variables mentioned on the packaging. I think this is interesting.
I do a lot of YouTube videos these days if you didn’t know and one that seems to pique people’s curiosity are the ones I do with spicy noodle challenges. The original spicy noodle challenge has to do with a South Korean variety, but I’ve done this with ones from India, Malaysia, heck, even Canada! Well hey – I’m hungry and extra hot mi goreng sounds just perfect right now. Let’s give it a try!
I’m really excited about this series – and the fact that I’m getting some help from a local business. Jonathan over at Waroeng Jajanan. The store and restaurant combo is just an amazing place to check out authentic Indonesian cuisine, and you’ll be seeing a lot of (pretty much all) that I add in the end being from there in this series. Alright – let’s check out this one from Maitri as part of Meet The Manufacturer!
Maitri Vegetarian Extra Hot Fried Noodle – Indonesia
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, cook noodle block in a pot for 3 minutes and drain. Add in sachet contents (except garnish). Stir very well. Finally, sprinkle garnish on top and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dual sachet.
Lots of chilli powder atop the seasoning base.
An oil sachet.
The garnish sachet.
Spicy radish chips!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added (prepared by Waroeng Jajanan) sambal goreng gentong, crackers, vegetable fritter, Indonesian pickle and Dua Belibis chilli sauce. The noodles have a great texture for mi goreng and work very well. The flavor is indeed good and spicy with a nice taste to them. The crunchy bits round everything out splendidly. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 034126937285.
