Awhile back, Lemonilo started producing a Mie Goreng variety which is honestly one of the best out there. Lemonilo puts everything in a healthy light. When they sent me the samples of their Mie Goreng, they included a shirt and a workout towel. I keep the towel on the stroller actually – handy when doing a dozen miles at a fast clip. This variety’s packaging clearly denoted it’s for the US market, however it’s made in Indonesia. This pack did’n’t come from them though – it was sent by a reader named James in Lakeside, California. Let’s give it a try!
Lemonilo Naked Ramen Chicken Curry Soup – United States
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, boil noodles in 2 cups water for 3.5 minutes. Drain, saving 1/2 cup water. Add sachet contents to a bowl along with saved water and noodles. Finally, stir and enjoy!
A non-fried noodle block.
A dual sachet of dry ingredients – soup base on the left, chili powder on he right.
A wet sachet of seasoned oil.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added tofu puff, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, sesame seeds, baked chicken, egg, and BonCabe. The noodles have a nice chew to them – they seem more handmade than instant and that goes along with the baked not fried aspect of them. The flavor is a nice bright, spicy, and savory curry which I thoroughly loved. I do however wish it could have had more broth to it. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 882095223218.
