Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: MAMA Instant Rice Vermicelli Bihun Goreng Perisa Asli

Today, we bid a fond farewell to the President Rice instant series with this Bihun Goreng. This product is probably self-explanatory to many, but I’ll give a little more to those who are unfamiliar. Mee goreng is a noodle that is boiled, drained and then seasoned and garnished. Bihun goreng is basically the same, however done with rice vermicelli. Let’s give it a try – and my thanks to President Rice Products for making this Meet The Manufacturer happen!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add vermicelli to a bowl and cover with boiling water. cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. stir and enjoy!

The dry seasoning sachet.

A slightly granular powder.

A liquid sachet.

Dark and oily.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, shrimp, coriander, tofu puffs, fried garlic and chilli flake. The vermicelli is thin and has a nice little chew to it. I gave it a few cuts with kitchen scissors to make it more manageable. The flavor is kind of a sweet, salty and spicy affair – just as bihun goreng should be! I really like this stuff a lot – a great change from a fried wheat noodle. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8851876000234.,

#1694: MAMA Instant Rice Vermicelli Bihun Goreng Original Flavor

I’m sure many of you are familiar with Mi Goreng. For those of you who aren’t, Mi Goreng translates to ‘fried noodle.’ Mi Goreng basically are noodles that are cooked, drained, dropped in a wok or skillet, and fried with different seasonings and ingredients. Now Bihun Goreng is a little different. Instead of a wheat noodle, rice vermicelli is used the same kind of way. Rice vermicelli are very thin rice noodles. Instead of broth, these are broth free. They’re kind of distant cousins of yakisoba, yakiudon and chow mein. Let’s check out this Bihun Goreng from MAMA of Thailand!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, put noodle block into a bowl and cover with boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents and combine well. Enjoy!

Definitely smell some garlic!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added spring onion, shrimp and white onion with some Healthy Boy brand soy sauce, hard boiled egg with Nguang Soon Dried Chilli Powder and some coriander. The noodles hydrated very nicely during the steeping process. Not too dry and had a substantial chew to them. I also would recommend using some kitchen scissors on them to do a couple cuts to make the length a little shorter – a trick I picked up from the first time I tried South Korean potato noodles. . The have a very nice flavor – sweet, salty and spicy. The spiciness definitely builds to a really exuberant crescendo! Great flavor and texture! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8851876000234.
