#1191: GaGa Seribu 1000 Goreng Spesial

Here’s another from my friend in Indonesia – thank you! When I translate ‘seribu,’ it says ‘thousand.’ This may be a reference to the Thousand Islands – here’s a Wikipedia excerpt:

The Thousand Islands (Indonesian: Kepulauan Seribu) are a chain of islands to the north of Jakarta’s coast. It forms the only regency of Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. It consists of a string of 110 islands[1] stretching 45 km north into the Java Sea.

A decree[2] states that 36 islands may be used for recreation. Of these 36 islands, only 13 islands are fully developed: 11 islands are homes to resorts and two islands are historic parks. Twenty-three islands are privately owned and are not open to the public.[3] The rest of the islands are either uninhabited or support a fishing village.[3]

Let’s have a look.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

Part of the noodle block.

The dry seasoning sachet.

A fine powder.

The liquid sachet.

Oil and sweet soy sauce, known a kecap manis.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed sweet onion, red, orange and yellow bell peppers, beef and a fried egg. The noodles are pretty average – although they have just the slightest extra girth and a slightly firmer chew,. The flavoring is excellent – the sweetness of the soy sauce, a nice peppery flavor, and an all around coating that really is enjoyable. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8888327831949.
