Finished (click to enlarge). I added some sweet onion, a fried egg with some Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Dua Belibis chili sauce. This stuff packs from heat! The noodles are your standard Indomie – nice texture and spring. The broth is spicy and has a nice tuna flavor along. There was a packet of garnish, which was dried tuna bits and was quite tasty. I like this a lot! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 08968604302 .

Dried tuna!

So yesterday I ran out of the frozen store brand stir-fry mix. Today my wife and I went to Country Farms, a local produce outdoor produce market. Got red bell pepper, onion, broccoli, snap peas, jalapenos and Fresno peppers. My wonderful amazing wife took everything and chopped em up and made a stir fry mix that is a thousand times better and cheaper, too! Thanks, Kit! You rock!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some of that awesome new veggie mix as well as a couple jalapenos. I also added one snowflake fried egg, some Huy Fong Striracha chili sauce, some Ajishima Salmon furikake and a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt. Well, the noodles were nice as always. The flavor is good except it was surprisingly spicy. I really didn’t expect that. Has a nice slightly tuna taste and was enjoyable. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686043716 .

Whoa – these things fly around crazy style!
