The Definitive Guide To Indomie Mi Goreng

Definitive Guide Series – Samyang Buldak * Nongshim Shin Ramyun * Indomie Mi Goreng

Before I started reviewing instant noodles on a regular basis, I fell in love with a product that was cheap, exotic, and relatively easy to access. That product was Indomie Mi Goreng. I remember when we would venture out of the small town of Anacortes, Washington in the northwest of the United States, I would hope that I would get the chance to visit an Asian grocery store in search of something new to try. I remember after I discovered Indomie Mi Goreng products being just head over heels about their Satay variety. I would get tons of it – 20 or 30 packs. My parents didn’t mind; it was inexpensive. I would share with my friends who hadn’t tried. This is one seriously popular product around the world and just perfection with a fried egg. In this guide, I’m going to go over the history of Indomie’s flagship Mi Goreng, how I prepare it, and some little known facts about it. Sit back, put on your reading glasses, watch me make some, and prepare to learn a little about one of the wonders of the instant noodle world. ...see full post

At least I know how to cook it, right? Let’s begin! ...see full post

#2798: Indomie Instant Noodles Mi Goreng Fried Noodles (Taiwan-only Version)

Alright so about these – I received a 5-pack from the nice folks at the Indomie booth at the Taiwan International Food Expo in Taipei, Taiwan in November 2017. I asked a little about them. This pack you see here is specifically for Taiwan. So, what’s different? Well for starters, lots of Chinese on the pack. The main difference however is the actual soizie of the package. This one’s a little bit bigger than the ones found elsewhere, and this is unique to Taiwan. You can’t get them like this anywhere else in the world. Period. A huge difference? No, but still a difference. Here’s a little info from Wikipedia – ...see full post

#2709: KOKA Signature Black Pepper Fried Noodles - Singapore - Tat Hui - The Ramen Rater

Well, I thought I was out of KOKA varieties to review and only had a couple duplicates but nope – nada – still got more! See, there are KOKA Signature and KOKA Delight which both look about the same and often have the same flavors. What’s the difference? Well, KOKA Delight is baked noodles – not fried. So I’ve still got a few varieties left. This one is a black pepper flavor noodle – without broth. Black pepper is an interesting thing – very historic as well. Let’s see if I can find something from Wikipedia – ...see full post

#2270: Samyang Foods Fresh Bibimmyun Fried Noodle

The first time I tried bibimmyun a long time ago I really didn’t get it. Spicy, sweet, and worst of all, it was cold. Yep – when I first started reviewing, the thought of cold noodles made me cringe. I found this one recently at HMart and honestly have been holding back on it since I just reviewed a bibimmyun a couple weeks ago – but no more. It’s getting colder outside – rainy too. Bibimmyun is really a dish for the hot summer months when something cool and refreshing really hits the spot. Well, maybe there will be a sun break today even though the forecast is for 10 days straight of rain… Let’s check this one out! ...see full post

#2075: Mi Sedaap Mi Segera Mi Goreng Ayam Krispi

Time for some mi goreng! So this is another one I found at the Uwajimaya in Renton, WA by where my son goes to Pokemon League. Today’s a weird day; the local power company has been going from apartment building to apartment building and repairing these big green power boxes outside. I’m guessing that the power could go out at any minute! I guess We’ll see – let’s get started! ...see full post
