Re-Review: Indomie Mi Goreng Fried Noodles

Yep – another re-review! But this one’s very special – i haven’t had this in a few years and I hope after reading and seeing, this stuff you’ll be ready and even dying to try it. This, my friend, is one of the finest instant noodle varieties I’ve ever had. Thanks to Jim C. for contacting Empire International, distributor of these and sending samples!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). These noodles are drained and then you stir the seasonings in.  Also, notice Empire International’s info in the lower left.

Here are the noodles before cooking. Good stuff!

On the left is dry seasoning, on the right, chili powder. Notice the little guy by the pepper? Who is that guy? I wonder if he has a name. When they introduced ZIP codes, the US Postal Service had a little guy they invented named ‘Mr. ZIP.’ Looks kind of like him.

On the left, we have seasoned oil which contains oil and onion. On the right kecap manis, which is a sweet soy sauce – this really contributes to the flavor.

Clockwise from top left, chili powder, powder seasoning, kecap manis and finally seasoned oil.

Wow – this stuff is so tasty. It’ a little sweet, a little spicy and very tasty. I love it – can’t get enough of it and give it 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – this is one of the wonders of the instant noodle world! Awesome! Get it here!

Okay this is really strange – never heard of this guy before.

No shit?

Rad vid!

#124: Nissin Yakisoba – with Mayonnaise / Mustard Packet

So this stuff is uber elite – probably one of the most amazing things I’ve ever had in the world of instant noodles. It’s 5 / 5 stars right off the bat. I’ve had this maybe three or four times and every time I find it just a little more amazing.

Upon removing the plastic outer covering is the lid of the box. Everything’s in Japanese, but it’s pretty self explanatory.

Dry powder packet.

Super ultra amazingness. You squeeze the sides together and it squirts dual goo streams of mayo and mustard – wasabi flavored! Ohhh yes…

The reservoirs of goo lay in wait.

Noodle block has the veggies just sitting underneath.

On the other side is a drain spout! Very awesome.

So after filling up to line with boiling water and a good sit’n’drain, and adding the dry powder and a goodly stir, here’s the finished product.

Then the goo is applied. Ohhh magical goo….

There you have it (click image to enlarge)! Yakisoba bowl by Nissin that blows away anything you can find domestically. This is a truly good thing to behold. It tastes soooo good. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars!!!!!!! By the way – I got this at the Uwajimaya in Seattle, WA. It’s the only place I know of where I can get it in Washington state.
