#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.

The chilli powder atop the very powdery soup base.

Seasoned oil.

Has a little bit of a garlic beef scent.

The gurih powder.

Personally, I like this sprinkled on top.

The vegetables sachet.

Little beans and vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out nicely – good chew and texture and good quantity. The broth had a kind of gritty beefiness to it, vaguely stew-like. The little beans were definitely not to my liking and pulled it down quite a bit for me. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8998866200851.
