#838: Sarimi Soto Koya Gurih

Here’s another one from my friend in  Jakarta, Indonesia – thanks again! This is another Indonesian noodle soup – not a dry noodle. Let’s give it a try! By the way – ‘Baru’ means new.

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

The noodle block.

Dry powder seasoning and chili powder.

The dry seasoning with chili powder atop.

Seasoned oil.

Has a nice lime scent.

This is a powdery garnish that goes on top.

So upon some researching, I found that serbuk koya means Koya powder. According to Selby’s Food Corner, “Koya powder is made from prawn crackers, fried garlic and dried shrimp.” They mention sprinkling it on top of a dish at that link, so I am assuming that it is to be sprinkled on top as a garnish.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red bell pepper, broccoli, a fried egg with a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt, some roast beef and some Dua Belibis chili sauce. Decent noodles – not soggy, spongy or tough. The broth was nice – a good hit of lime flavor and spices. The koya on top adds an interesting extra flavor. Great stuff – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#435: Wingsfood Mie Sedaap Instant Mie Sambal Goreng

Sweet! Two days in a row of Indonesian delicacy! Today we have one with mention of Sambal in the title. Sambal equals spicy! Should be good!

Okay so clockwise from the top left we have the delicious fried onions that will be sprinkled on the finished product, dry powdered seasoning known as bumbu, a thick sweet black soy sauce called kecap manis, a chili sauce which usually is manis pedas but I think is where the sambal seasoning is contained, and finally some seasoned oil.

Some crazy looking stuff here! The seasoned oil is the opaque on top top left, then the chili sauce and then the soy sauce with the powder bumbu at the bottom.

Click image to enlarge. The finished product with the nice little bots of fried onion sprinkled. This is what I was expecting yesterday – noodles are cooked and then drained and stirred on a bowl with the seasonings. So yeah this is some great stuff! Some spiciness going on that’s for sure! The onion was as advertised – delicious! Impressive! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.

#434: Wingsfood Mie Sedaap Instant Kari Spesial Bumbu Kari Kental

So today we went and looked for noodles at the HT Oaktree on 100th & Aurora in Seattle. Found these new Indonesian noodles! Sweet! Kari translates to curry!!!

Nice to be greeted by so many packets! From left to right we have dry powder seasoning, chili powder, fried onions and then the seasoned oil. This is where the curry taste lie as it smelled so nice.

Wow now that looks crazy! I expected these noodles to be like Mi Goreng stuff from Indomie but it is definitely not the same. This one has a broth!

Click image to enlarge. So here’s the finished result with a couple fried eggs tossed in. So this was really good – I expected something non soupy from Indonesia but this was just fine with me! A nice sweet curry flavor, a lovely color and flavor. I loved it – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.
