#1261: Meet The Manufacturer: Eat & Go Rasa Baso Sapi Meat Ball Mi Instan Cup

I wanted to do something special with this one. Recently, I visited Waroeng Jajanan, an Indonesian grocery nearby. As it turns out, they make Indonesian style meatballs! I didn’t want to make this without sampling them, so this is a really exciting one for me! Honestly, I’ve never had Indonesian food other than instant noodles before! Let’s check it out!

The side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add all sachet contents except the tofu chips to the cup and add boiling water to the fill line. Steep for three minutes, stir and add tofu chips on top.

The garnish sachet.

Tofu chips!


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added greens and a large meatball from Waroeng Jajanan and some hard boiled egg. The noodles were as good as usual – nice gauge and texture. The broth was a nice meaty flavor and had a decent heartiness. The tofu chips were a nice addition (not pictured as I forgot to add them in in this shot). 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

By the way – the big meatball from Waroeng Jajanan was absolutely delectable! I wish I would’ve gotten a picture of what was inside this amazing thing – a perfectly cooked hard boiled egg with a soft yolk! Thank you! Wonderful! 5.0 out of 5.0 for their food! I’ll be doing a review of something else I got from there today after the Meet The Manufacturer is over. UPC bar code 8992388112807.

I thought the computer voice on this was a little odd!

#1180: Wei Lih What’s That? Leisure Meatballs Spicy Chicken Flavor

When I’m ready to relax and have some ‘me time,’ there are two words that immediately enter my mind: leisure meatballs. What’s that? Leisure meatballs? Yes. Spicy chicken flavored ones. Let’s have a look.

The import sticker.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

Gaze upon the majesty of that which is the leisure meatball!

Finished (click image to enlarge). They’re crunchy and light. They have a slight sweetness and a spiciness that is very slight but builds the more you eat. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4710199084403.


Here’s a commercial from Wei Lih – brilliant!

Here’s another one from the T&T Supermarket up in Burnaby, BC. I asked for help with the translation on Facebook. Thanks guys! Snack noodles are very popular in Asia and here’s one variety to check out. Yes – it’s from Taiwan! It’s a package with three little packs inside. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the contents of one of the packs. They’re ready to eat snacks, and aren’t for cooking. They are light, crunchy and have a salty chicken flavor with a little sweetness. I could eat these all day I think. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4710199084205.

Re-Review: Indomie Mi Goreng Satay AND Rasa Baso Sapi (Meatball Flavor

So after seeing an article or two about Indomie’s problems with ‘noodlegate,’ I thought I’d show my support by eating two packages for breakfast. These are some of the best packages of noodles ever – they’re both reviewed on here already, so this is a re-review. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. Big time – good stuff here!

Two packages of noodles. Eight packets. EIGHT OF THEM! Indomie is awesome!

Wow some crazy looking bizarreness in this bowl…

So here we are greeted by the lovely vision of delectableness I have been cooking up for years. Added a couple fried eggs, some kizami shoga (pickled ginger), fried shallots and a little bit of Jufran Hot Banana sauce! Yeah – banana sauce! It’s about 80 cents a bottle and comes from the Philippines. Reminds me of Indonesian Manas Pedas sauce which is usually paired with these noodles – it’s a sweet and hot sauce. So this banana stuff works great in lieu of having that. Anyways, here’s the best bowl I really can think of right now. Get the satay here and the meatball here.

#46: Indomie Jumbo Meat Ball

Indomie: Jumbo Meat Ball
Notes: Strangely enough, this did have a slight hamburger-like flavor to it. It’s best  quality is that it’s a jumbo pack – can’t get enough of this stuff! Basically very much like the regular fried noodles. Get it here in the regular size.
