#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 –

Indomie is a brand of Instant noodle by Indofood, the largest instant noodle manufacturer in Indonesia, with a market share of 72%.[1] It is distributed in Australia, Asia, Africa, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Europe, The Philippines, and Middle Eastern countries. Outside its main manufacturing plants in Indonesia, Indomie is also produced in Nigeria since 1995 where it is a popular brand and has the largest instant noodle manufacturing plant in Africa.[2]

The “Mi Goreng” (“stir fry“) range of instant noodles by Indomie, based on the Indonesian dish Mie goreng, entered the market in 1983 and are distributed in North America, Europe, Africa, Australasia and various regions in Asia. The brand flavours are sold in varying weight packets, around 85 g, and contain two sachets of flavourings. The first sachet has three segments and carries the liquid condiments: sweet soy saucechilli sauce, and seasoning oil with garlic flakes. The other sachet has two segments for dry seasoning powder and flake of fried shallot. In some regions, Indomie Mi goreng is also available in jumbo (120 gram) packs.[15]

In 2006, Indomie launched a new variant Indomie Mi Goreng Kriuuk.. 8x. In this product, 8x means “Lebih banyak, Lebih renyah, Lebih gurih, Lebih gede” (“more noodles, crunchier, more savory, larger”), in three flavours: Chicken, Onion, Spicy. Indomie Mi Goreng is certified halal.

Indomie Mi Goreng contains phenylalanine, so individuals suffering from phenylketonuria should avoid the seasoning. Indomie Mi Goreng also contains monosodium glutamate (MSG, listed as flavour enhancer 621).

Additionally flavour enhancer 631 can be prepared from meat extract and/or dried sardines, but it can also be created via a microbial synthesis process from a vegetable source,[16] and flavour enhancer 627 is isolated from sardines and/or yeast extract. The inclusion of flavour enhancer 631 and the way it was prepared means Indomie Mi Goreng may or may not be suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Note that last line there. Okay so for all of you asking for a top ten vegetarian list – that’s why there isn’t one. Digging through ingredient lists all over and especially ones with these flavor enhancers would be a serious job. Not gonna happen! Anyways, let’s open this one up and have a look!

#2746: Ve Wong Fried Noodles With Mexican Chili Flavor

This was one I couldn’t leave Taiwan without. I saw this at RT Mart during my trip and passed it up since it was a 4 or 5 pack. But when I saw it again at Carrefour, I realized I’d better snag this one.

It’s been quite a morning – my scanner got screwed up which it does once every three months or so. When I went to reboot, Windows decided to do an update – which took almost two hours! Ugh. So much for the efficiency of waking up at 4am to get work done./  Well, let’s check out this Mexican Chili flavor instant noodle! Oh and by the way – I found out it’s not pronounced with a V sound but a W like ‘way wong.’

Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro, fried onion, fried egg, Mexican cheese, jalapeno slices, and Cholula hot sauce. The noodles came out well enough – decent quantity and good tooth to them. Gauge was very standard. The flavor was definitely inspired by enchilada sauce, that’s for sure. Heat level was moderate and lot of cumin and chili taste to it. Surprises from Taiwan just keep coming. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710008293231.

Today we have something I find interesting. I’ve heard before about the popularity of ‘Singapore Noodles’ in Britain, and that they’re not actually from Singapore. Here’s a little about that from Wikipedia –

Singapore-style noodles (Chinese: 星洲炒米; pinyin: xīngzhōuchǎomǐ) is a dish of stir-fried rice vermicelli seasoned with curry powder, vegetables, scrambled eggs and meat, most commonly chicken, beef, char siu pork, or prawns.

The dish, despite its name, was not created in Singapore and is rather uncommon there. It is very commonly found at Cantonese-style restaurants and take away eateries in Hong Kong.[1][2] The dish is also very popular in English, Australian, Canadian and American Chinese cuisine.

This doesn’t look to be the same thing, however I could be wrong. I tghink perhaps I will go with the garnish that the foreign version includes; I do have car siu pork in the freezer… Scrambled egg sounds interesting too. Definitely not rice vermicelli here though – these are fried wheat noodles. I suppose the best thing is to research KOKA’s website –

So aspects of all of these seem to be part of what the Wikipedia mentions above. So yeah – sounds interesting and time to give it a try!

The flavor is unique and quite nice. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888056813179.

#2374: World O' Noodle Mi Goreng Garlic Flavour Fried Noodles

Here’s one I got in the Jason’s Market on the first floor of the Taipei 101 in Taiwan last November. I believe this World O’Noodles line is from a big grocery store chain in Southeast Asia – not 100% sure on that, but pretty sure. Garlic Mi Goreng? Oh yeah – sign me up! I’m hoping that this will be a delightful and delicious instant from Indonesia. Let’s have a look at this World O’Noodle variety.

#1862: Ibumie Always Mi Goreng Asli

For awhile now, people have been asking if I’d reviewed Ibumie’s Always Mi Goreng. Well, no – that’s because I’d never found it or received a sample or donation from a reader. I’ve seen it around for years on the Internet. About a month or so ago my wife and I were at the Edmonds 99 Ranch Market and she noticed a whole bunch of varieties and asked if I’d tried them. I’m legally blind, which basically means my eyesight is there, but so poor that it’s hard for me to cross the street, would be a menace behind the wheel, and miss a lot of instant noodles that my wife catches at the store! So, if you’re one of the folks who have messaged me about this one, you can thank Kit for her keen observation! Let’s check out Always Mi GOreng!

Here’s the back of the package, a four pack (click to enlarge). This is an import/distributor sticker – probably the largest one I’ve seen. They’re distributed by Walong, 99 Ranch Market’s big distribution asset.

Here’s the back of one of the individual packages (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to a pot of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. While the noodle cook, add the sachet contents to a bowl. Drain noodles. Add noodles to the bowl and mix thoroughly with sachet contents. Enjoy!

Loved this stuff in a pack for years, Love it in a cup too. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686180657.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added fried egg and coriander. The noodles had a thicker gauge to them than your standard instant mi goreng which was nice. The flavor was more curry than anything else – spicy too. I would have liked the curry to have played nicer with the other ingredients and allow their flavors to come through more, but it was still quite good. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9556001184337.

 Lucky Peach Issue 10: The Street Food Issue – (from Amazon) – Lucky Peach is a quarterly journal of food and writing. Each issue focuses on a single theme, and explores that theme through essays, art, photography, and recipes. Less summary than survey, the street food issue takes to the world’s streets like a starved flâneur, flitting from birria in Mexico City to chicharron-studded tortillas in Buenos Aires, from chaat in Mumbai to gizzard noodle soup in Chiang Mai’s Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. This issue watches as children made stick bread in Copenhagen and shares a report on who’s eating all your cigarette butts (spoiler: microbes). For Jonathan Gold, the experience of eating street food is inseparable from time and place. Issue 10 also delves into the history of “Turkey in the Straw,” an ice-cream truck ditty that rings out across Los Angeles; spends a day with the Doughnut Luchador of East LA (doughnut slinger by day, luchador by night); and learns what happens, exactly, when you cook with charcoal, and what nixtamalizing does to corn. Plus, a look into the wondrous array of street sausages around the globe, the best of the wurst.

Meet The Manufacturer: #1472: Ruski Chicken Masala Flavour Instant Fried Noodles

Mi Goreng! It sounds exotic, but it boils down to fried noodles. This is a rather unique one – I don’t think I’ve heard of a masala chicken dry noodle like this before, but it sounds pretty good! It’s been a while since I’ve had any mi goreng, and my son is here today and wants some so I thought why not. Let’s check it out!

As summer winds down, my thoughts return to the days when school’s ugly head would be rearing soon. My son Andy goes back to school September 3rd! Fourth grade… I will definitely say Fourth wasn’t the worst grade I experienced, although it was pretty bad. I’m really hoping he has a much better experience than I did. Here he is doing up a post about his new school stuff. I told him he needed to write some thoughts about his upcoming school year – he tried to weasel out of it, but I bribed him so it should be an interesting post. Quite a setup he’s got in his room – mostly hand me downs, but works for an aspiring blogger. Anyways, onward!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, ass noodles to a bowl and add 400cc boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Drain well. Add in sachet contents and stir until combined. Enjoy!

Meet The Manufacturer: #1383: Takamori Futomen Yakisoba

During this week, we’ve been reviewing different types of yakisoba – but what is Futomen yakisoba? Futomen is a variety with a slight wider gauge noodle than the regular soba noodle. Also I am told that the flavoring is a little spicier. Let’s check it out!

HHere’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it contains meat or fish. To prepare, add a little oil to a pan and sautee some meat and vegetables a little. Add 30ml water and the noodles and cook and combine. Add the sachet contents and combine thoroughly. Enjoy!

Has that nice Worcestershire scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added black pepper infused panko breaded baked chicken, green onion, cabbage, sweet onion, Kewpie mayonnaise, and Kizami Shoga (pickled ginger). Indeed, the noodles have a slightly wider gauge – kind of between soba and udon – and they were very good. The flavor was a hint warmer as far as spiciness goes. The flavor is of great yakisoba through and through – delicious! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4901959100178.

The Ramen Rater’s Ramyun Sliders

With the recent popularity of the ‘ramen burger,’ I felt it necessary to try them out, but with a twist.  South Korean ramyun is easily available by many brand and the noodles are thicker as well as more plentiful than other country’s varieties. Let’s give this a try!

The Ramen Rater’s Ramyun Sliders

Ingredients

  • 1 block South Korean style ramyun noodles – any brand (Nongshim, Ottogi, Paldo, Samyang all would be perfect for this. I used Ottogi Ramyonsari as it doesn’t have a seasoning packet included).
  • 1 egg
  • Kimchi
  • Busan fish cake OR hamburger (I thought the fish cake would be perfect, but since not everyone likes fish, hamburger would go fine – could even use vegetarian meat)
  • gochucjang
  • cheese (optional)
  • oil

Directions:

2013_8_11_rec_001

Make sure you’ve got a block of ramyun – it’s pretty simple to do: if the noodles are wider than most instant noodles you’ve seen before, they’re probably ramyun (especially if they’re a product of South Korea – or in Nongshim’s case, Rancho Cucamonga, California).

Drop the noodles in a pot of boiling water for about 4 minutes. You won’t need the seasoning packets.

Drain the noodles really well. Return the noodles to the pot you cooked them in and crack an egg over them. Stir until the egg is full combined with the noodles.

Put the noodle/egg mixture on a dinner plate and flatten a little – spreading them out a little.

Now take the other plate and press it down on the mixture firmly. Put this in the fridge for two hours.

After the two hours, pull the plates out. Take the top plate off carefully. Use a spatula to loosen the noodles from the lower plate and drop them on a cutting board.

Use a pizza wheel to cut the noodles into squares. You could also use a cookie cutter to cuts them into circles or other shapes should you desire.

Put some oil in a skillet, heat, and start frying up the squares. I did it over medium heat and it took a few minutes per side to get them nice and golden. After they’re done, let cool for a minute on some paper towels (this will sop up any extra oil).

Let’s make these bad boys! First layer I did was the Busan fish cake. I cooked mine in the microwave.

Then a couple pieces of kimchi.

I really like cheese in my ramyun, so I thought why not try it on these?

A nice bit of gochujang.

Put the other half of the ‘bun’ on and you’re finished!

Finished (click to enlarge image). The ramyun buns came out really nice. They have a great crispness and wonderful textures to them. It’s kind of like a handheld spicy ramyun noodle bowl! If you decide to try this, let me know – send pictures and I’ll post them here! Eager to see your creations!
