#2417: Super Bihun Bihun Kuah Rasa Baso Sapi - Indonesia - The Ramen Rater - rice vermicelli - beehoon

I reviewed this probably over 1000 reviews or more ago, but I noticed on this one it says it’s got a new formula. So bihun is rice vermicelli. But baso sapi – what’s that? Wikipedia, if you please:

Bakso or baso is Indonesian meatball,[2] or meat paste made from beef surimi.[3] Its texture is similar to the Chinese beef ball, fish ball, or pork ball. The term bakso could refer to a single meatball or the whole bowl of meatballs soup.

Bakso can be found all across Indonesia; from the traveling cart street vendors to restaurants. Next to soto, satay and siomay, bakso is one of the popular street food in Indonesia.[4] Today, various types of ready to cook bakso also available as frozen food commonly sold in supermarkets in Indonesia.

Beef meatball – sounds good. So let’s give this baso sapi flavored vermicelli a try!

Has a garlic scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, tofu puff, Salad Cosmo mung bean sproutsd and coriander. The vermicelli is awesome – I like how it has a kind of fluffy character to it it without being mushy. The broth has a very good flavor; a kind of garlic and onion taste with a nice underlying beef kind of hit. The oiliness is on point and the chilli powder gives a little touch of spice. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8994357010046.

#765: Super Bihun Instant Rice Noodles Kuah

Here’s another one that was lurking in the bottom of the hamper! Been kind of wondering where it had gone – well, here it is! I must say this is my favorite logo ever – looks like a heart and a bomb, doesn’t it? Curious how this one will be. Let’s go!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).

Yeah – rice noodles. Hoping for the best here.

Here’s a dual packet – seasoning on the left and chili powder on the right.

Here’s the chili powder atop the seasoning.

Here’s a packet of seasoned oil.

Here is is, ready to go.


Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles are extremely thin and actually really quite good – borderline mushy but not in a bad way. The broth was a little thick which was enjoyable – I could see this as a very nice winter stick to your ribsy kind of. It has a strong salt and pepper and onion taste to it I really liked. Interesting and very basic – maybe some chicken and green veggies. I like it very much – it’s genuine and good. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8994357010022 – get it here.

Gangga Island diving – looks pretty awesome

Franchising in Jakarta perhaps?

#552: Super Bihun Instant Rice Noodles Bihun Kuah Rasa Baso Sapi

Here we go with another of the Super Bihun products – Bihun Kuah Rasa Baso Sapi. Wow – what a name! From having Indomie products many times, I was able to figure out this is meatball flavor. Also, it’s got the little bomb logo on the top left! Awesome!

Powder, chili powder and then the seasoned oil.

The back of the package (click image to enlarge).

A triumvirate of flavors ready for the ultimate in unions: flavor to cooked noodle.

Click image to enlarge. Weird – so the noodles are a little mushy but for rice noodles, I like them quite a bit. The broth, which is almost more of a gravy affair, was good but had an interestingly preservative tinged aftertaste I can’t put my finger on. It was a charming and exotic bowl from Indonesia – 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Street vendor baksa sapi.

#343: Super Bihun Goreng Instant Fried Rice Noodles

This is definitely the most unique of all the packages of noodles I have ever found. Let’s get started.

Just under where it says Super, notice the little logo? It looks like a falling bomb! I don’t know what else it could be considered to be – so to start off with, that’s pretty awesome. The red banner going across exclaims “Instant Bihun Lezaaat!”  I thought this was weirdness, but I figured I’d better get digging. Google Translate says Bihun means Angerl Hair and didn’t come up with anything for lezaaat, but lezat means delicious.

Okay now in the image of the food, I gotta say that a chicken drumstick chucked in the middle of noodles is something I find most weird.

Finally, bottom right – Ekstra Minyak Bawang – translates to extra garlic oil.

These look really familiar – like the Mi Goreng by Indomie. These also come from Indonesia so I’d imagine that’s why. From right to left, garlic seasoned oil, sweet soy sauce and chili sauce.

Here’s the bomb – I mean the bumbu – I mean the sauce – I mean the powdered seasoning…

I thought a pic of the noodles would be good since they are a little interesting. Also, this is a drain thing – you drain the noodles.

After draining you put them in a bowl that has the seasonings and stir. Clockwise from top: powdered seasoning, garlic oil, sweet soy sauce and chili sauce.

Click image to enlarge. Bam. Two fried eggs, a little fried shallot and some kizami shoga – pickled ginger. This was really really good stuff! It reminded me of some of Indomie’s things – the Mi Goreng line for sure. I liked the noodles and the seasonings were very nice too. Altogether, this was a very enjoyable and satisfying breakfast. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s how to make it homemade!
