#2704: Maggi Cuppa Chilly Chow

Found this one down in Pleasanton, California during our road trip to visit family in August. Boy – that was a journey! We took Miles (almost 2 years old) and Miri (8 months old). I can say that car seats would be comfy I think but if I were that age I sure wouldn’t want to sit in one for that long – I think the way down was 18 hours and we broke the drive back into two chunks – I think altogether that was about 24 hours with all the stops.

Anyways, while down there we hit some Indian grocery stores. This variety I think is Indian (or Desi) Chinese food; spicy chow mein perhaps? Let’s check it out!

Lots of loose reddish seasoning.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander. These flat noodles are abundant here and enjoyable. The broth is indeed a bit on the spicy side, but the only problem is that I’m not getting a really great flavor. The broth (more of a sauce) is very monotone. Little bits here and there are nice though. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8901058845617.

    I love maggi. Ever since I was kid, in india and here, we always used to get them but like a year ago or more, i’m sure you’ve heard, there was a scandal of maggi. They had enchancers and lead and some other substances that wasn’t allowed. Thought now, they have probably changed it, i still eat it and love it. I’ve never seen a cup like that but i remember the boxes of maggi noodles, the block. Those are the pure maggi form. I don’t know if you’ve had it, but it isn’t instant noodles but rather one you can make for your whole family and everyone will be full and happy. That too, it is healthy sort o but edible for your kids. They would love it. I think they still make it today, though i haven’t had it in such a long time. Though yea, that’s all xD. I love this site and what you do because you not only to asian but also Indian as well as others. The diversity is amazing. Keep up the good work
