#686: Wingsfood Mi Sedaap Mi Goreng Perisa Sambal Goreng

More Indonesian noodles! This one’s a spicy pack of mi goreng – fried noodles!

This is the export label.

Here’s the package back (click image to enlarge) – the export sticker was a little obstinate.

Here’s the noodle block.

Well, not too hard to tell what we have here – from left to right, seasoned oil, hot chili sauce and sweet soy sauce.

Powdered seasoning sachet!

So everything gets put in the bowl and the noodles once done are drained and everything is stirred up.

Here’s the garnish packet – fried onions!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added two fried eggs, some roast turkey lunch meat, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Melinda’s Garlic Habanero hot sauce. Oh – and the fried onion garnish. The noodles are great – chewy and soft too. The flavor is spicy and sweet – along with a satisfying and delicious crunch from the fried onion. This is grubbin! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars! UPC barcode 8998866200448 – get it here.

#680: Vina Acecook King Cook Shrimp Flavour

Today’s my birthday! Yay! I haven’t had any Vina Acecook in a while so I thought I’d have this one that was in the bags of noodles my sis brought me back from the great white north! Yay! Time fer noodles!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge) – on the front it touted ‘no MSG’ and on the ingredient list I notice it mentions antioxidants in both the seasoning and the noodles. Interesting.

The noodle block – mid sized.

I’m a little surprised here – only one packet?! Usually there’s at least three in Vina Acecook’s stuff. Hope the one has some splendid flava!

Here’s the dry seasoning.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added two fried eggs, some fried shallot, a couple bits of frozen stirfry vegetables and a little of my favorite hot sauce of all time! Let me just say after sampling and reviewing over 275 different hot sauces as The Sauce Rater a few years back, Melinda’s Garlic Habanero is by far my favorite! Okay so first, the noodles. They’re not bad – not great. Kind of on the cheap side. The broth’s getting an ‘okay’ from me. This was a little disappointing, but after adding everything else it was a nice meal. Allin all, kind of meh. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 8934563734169 .

People used to care about the space program when I was a kid and now its budget is tiny in comparison. I say end all military spending and split it on NASA and ending poverty- full bellies and Star Trek! Who’s with me?
