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.

#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.
