#870: SuperMi Mi Keriting Rasa Ayam Bawang

Here’s another one that from my friend in Jakarta, Indonesia was kind enough to send – thanks again! So curly noodles with onion chicken flavor – sounds tasty!

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

Unbroken noodle block.

Powder seasoning on the left and chili powder on the right.

Here’s the seasoning powder with the chili powder on top.

Seasoned oil.

Looks interesting – and it has a strong onion scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies, a couple fried eggs with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some Dua Belibis. The noodles were nice – slightly springy and just right. The broth was nice – a slight spiciness, good chicken taste and strong onion flavor. Good stuff! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686014679 .

Check out this SuperMi commercial – and the heart shapoed hard boiled egg slices! That’s pretty rad – wonder how they do that…

Thanks egg dude, you da man.

Re-Review: Indomie Special Quality Instant Noodles Mie Keriting Rasa Ayam Panggang Curly Noodles With Grilled Chicken Flavor

Okay this is a very special ramenrater review here – if asked what is my favorite meal that is of instant noodles, this would be it. I have been making it and variations on it for years now. Behold the fine Indonesian treat, Indomie’s Mie Keriting Rasa Ayam Panggang!!!

Five seasoning packets. Five. This is just awesome. Going clockwise from the top, the reddish packet is a hot and sweet chili sauce called Manis Pedas and next to it is a seasoned oil. Below, one packet is dehydrated vegetables and next to it is the powdered seasoning. Left and finally, we have a ‘seasoning soup,’ a packet added to some hot water and added at the very end.

Before I added the water, here is the veggies living on top of the noodles in the pot.

Clockwise from top: powdered seasoning, seasoned oil, Manis Pedas.


Once the noodles are drained, they are tossed in the bowl and stirred until everything’s blended nicely. Then…

Three fried eggs – so sue me it’s breakfast and I have a splitting headache. This will fix me right up!

Here’s the seasoning soup powder at the bottom of the Burger King Star Trek glass. I added around 1/3 of a cup of water and microwaved for a minute then stirred and added to the bowl. One thing too – I broke the egg yolks open and poured the soup directly over them – THIS IS IMPORTANT! This causes the little bit of broth to be even tastier and awesome!

Finally, I added a couple more things. In Indomie’s other offerings like their Mi Goreng Satay, there is a packet of fried onions to add. I found fried shallot a nice addition for this variety. They’re cheap and you get a ton of it. The Blazing pink stuff next to it is kizami shoga. Basically its pickled ginger that you would see in yakisoba. I like the little bit of cold crunchiness it adds and the light ginger bite.

I really like this (click image to enlarge). I cannot tell you how much I enjoy cooking it and turning people on to it – it’s simple, exotic and satisfying. Enjoy. A happy 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. Truly magnificent! Get it here.

#105: Indomie Mie Keriting Goreng Spesial Special Fried Curly Noodles

So here she is. Ultra tasty and ready for preparation. There is only one slightly better and its about the same but has a soup base packet inside which goes great with it.

Okay so looking pretty decent here – and reasonably good amounts of each.

Oil, one called sambal, but I suspect it is Manis Pedas and the third is sweet soy sauce, kecap manis.

The bowl is prepared. These noodles must be drained unless you want to be disgusted.

Here they are drained and just sitting there ready to mow down. Made this for a huge breakfast – there’s two packages just so you know. At this point, 5 out of 5 stars without hesitation.

Ah but throw on some eggs, some pickled ginger and some fried shallots and it’s even better. I know 5 stars is as high as it goes, but I will have to admit this is really just about my favorite. Like I mentioned at the beginning of the review, there’s another variety that comes with a packet that you add about 1/4 cup of water to and add. This goes well with the eggs – split the yolks if theyre runny and pour the soup base over it. Gloppy and glorious. Get it here.

#51: Indomie Curly Noodles With Grilled Chicken Flavor


Indomie: Curly Noodles With Grilled Chicken Flavor
Stars: *****
Notes: This has to be the penultimate achievement in the ramen producing world. First off, these noodles are great; they are flat and curly with an unsurpassed, fine  character. The package comes with a myriad of flavorings, including sweet soy, bumbu sauce, seasoned oil, chili powder, and finally, an extra special packet. After boiling the noodles and mixing with the seasonings in a bowl, you add 1/2 a cup of boiling water to this packet and stir – it’s a soup base. This stuff is really good – especially when you put two fried eggs on top of the ramen, then pour it over slowly. Fried shallots on top of that with a bit of shedded pickled ginger makes the scene complete. I can’t recommend any ramen more than this one. This is top! Get it here.
