Found this one at the same place I found some spicy dumplings up in Vancouver, BC called Super 88. So, these are Indomie Mi Goreng flavored potato chips. I suppose there’s really nothing left to do but crack the bag open and give them a try!
Chitato Indomie Mi Goreng Fried Noodles Flavour Potato Chips – Indonesia

Here’s the last of the potato chip varieties I’ve got for review. The hamper is dry of potato chips! Still makes me laugh a little – I would have never thought that instant noodle flavors would crossover to potato chips. Let’s check these out!
Nissin Demae Ramen Sesame Oil Flavour Potato Chips – Hong Kong
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, open bag, and insert hand into bag. Grasp one or more potato chips. Bring hand to primary facial opening and insert potato chips. Chew. Finally, salivate and ingest!
One of the chips.
Finished (click to enlarge). The chips are of a standard size. Also, they are ruffled. As to the mouthfeel, while crisp, they seem extra greasy which didn’t appeal to me. The flavor while tasty, didn’t really bring me a good correlation and unmistakable thought of sesame oil flavor Demae Ramen. For a snack, I give these 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897053640088
Commercial tom yum paste is made by crushing all the herb ingredients and stir frying in oil. Seasoning and other preservative ingredients are then added. The paste is bottled or packaged and sold around the world. Tom yum flavored with the paste may have different characteristics from that made with fresh herb ingredients. The soup often includes meats such as chicken, beef, pork, or shrimp.
Alright – let’s delve into some spicy potato chips!
Nissin Cup Noodles Tom Yum Goong Flavour Potato Chips – Hong Kong
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains crustacean. To prepare, open bag. Withdraw one or more potato chips. Add to primary facial opening (i.e. mouth). Finally, masticate, repeat, and enjoy!
A small and round chip.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added a little spring onion. The chips are crisp. They have a ridged surface and a slight curve. They definitely taste like tom yum – spicy and lemongrassy… Works surprisingly well on as potato chip. For a snack, an easy 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897053640156.
So the other day I posted the unboxing of noodle and potato chip samples sent by Nissin Hong Kong (thanks again!). I thought it would be fun to do up a video with the family and try these out one by one.
Okay before you start swinging your fists around and marching in the street screaming ‘these aren’t instant noodles,’ Well, for the instant noodles version of this, go to the last review. These are potato chips infused the the same seasoning! Sounds good to me – here’s a little about black pepper crab from Wikipedia –
Black pepper crab is one of the two most popular ways that crab is served in Singaporean cuisine. It is made with hard-shell crabs, and fried with black pepper. Unlike the other popular chilli dish, it is not cooked in a sauce and therefore has a dry consistency. It is becoming very popular to mix the pepper crab with a fresh jackfruit sauce.
Nissin Cup Noodles Potato Chips Black Pepper Crab Flavour – Singapore
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, open bag. Place hand in bag and grasp one or more chips. Finally, withdraw hand and place chip(s) in mouth. Masticate, consume, enjoy!
A single chip. Notice the ridges!
Finished (click to enlarge). The chips are of a standard size one would expect. They are indeed ridges, which I suppose gives you more potato that a flat chip. The flavoring mirrors that of the Nissin Cup Noodles Black Pepper Crab variety very nicely, although of course there’s a potato taste in there that isn’t present in the Cup Noodles. However, it works very well and they’re tasty! Spicy and crabby. For a snack, I give these a 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888279900021.
