#909: Indomie Mi Goreng Kriuuk Bawang

This is the final one – the last one that my friend from Jakarta, Indonesia sent. These have been a lot of fun since there’s no way you can buy them here in the states! Awesome! Thanks again! So what does bawang mean? Onion. And what about kriuuk? Crunchy. Let’s try this out.

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

A big chunk of the noodle block.

Bumbu? Seasoning powder!

Looks like a decent amount.

Liquid seasonings: seasoned oil, chili sauce and sweet soy sauce.

The seasoning oil has a nice onion aroma.

The chili sauce and sweet soy sauce.

Here’s the star of the show: the crunchy bits!

Kind of look like Rice Krispies, no? Well, they definitely end their resemblance with the visual – they’re spicy, crunchy little bits of enjoyment.

Thought I’d take a shot of them all together to really show what we have. This is a lot of extra stuff to go with a block of instant noodles; Indomie’s really quite unique in this.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sweet onion, bell pepper, carrot, broccoli, green bean, water chestnut, baby corn, some baked chicken with Lindberg-Snider Red Baron BBQ Spice, a couple fried eggs with some Krazy Mixed Up salt, Dua Beliibis chili sauce and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are trademark Indomie – nice chew and good quantity. The flavor is nice – the sweet and spicy is there as well as a nice hit of onion. The kriuuk? Well, it’s crunchy and abundant – almost too much of it! Good stuff – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686059748 .

The Gong Ageng – turn up the bass and the volume – this is amazing!

#779: Indomie Mi Instan Mi Goreng Kriuuk Ayam (Crispy Chicken)

Here’s another new one sent by my friend in Indonesia – thanks again! This certainly is different – kriuuk? I couldn’t find a direct translation but here’s what Wikipedia said:

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” (translated: more noodles, crunchier, more delicious, larger), in three flavours: Chicken, Onion, Spicy.

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

Here’s a chunk of the noodle block.

Here’s the powder seasoning packet.

A decent amount of it.

The liquid packets. From left to right: seasoned oil, sweet and hot chili sauce and sweet soy sauce.

Here’s all three in the same cup, ready to go!

Here’s the special pack!

This is great – a ton of neat little crunchy bits! Like little fried tasty seasoned bits of awesomeness!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added two eggs, chicken lunch meat, veggies, some Huy Fong Sriracha sauce and some kizami shoga (pickled ginger). The noodles are your regular awesome Indomie fare – decent amount and they are easily grabbed by the seasonings. The flavor is nice – sweet, spicy and chicken flavored. The crunchy bits are insane – there are so many of them! Pretty cool and different. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686059717 .
