#3268: Fitmee Konjac Fried Korean Noodle - Indonesia

Here’s something pretty fascinating. First off, thanks to Empire International for sending these over! This is from Indonesia, is only 160 calories for the whole package, and… yeah. It’s konjac (pronounced like cognac).- These noodles are incredibly low cal and I’ve honestly had mixed resilts. I’ve had them that are horrible before – thicker noodles. But recently tried some that were thinner and they worked well. These are dry, and I haven’t tried them that way before, so we shall see how it goes. Let’s find out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and vegetables for 400ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Drain. add remaining sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The block of konjac noodles.

Dry seasoning base.

A wet sachet of seasoned oil.

A dry sachet of vegetables.

Chili powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion. The noodles are kind of rubbery as they employ tapioca flour. Some might be put off by this, but I think they have a certain charm to them. I’ve had konjac noodles before I disliked, but that was completely due to their gauge. These are nice. Flavor is on point with a good spicy hit which is reminiscent of fire noodle. A nice quantity of vegetable and really quite innovative and unique. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8997006449945.

#3008: Indomie Real Meat Mi Instan Goreng Rendang – Indonesia

#3008: Indomie Real Meat Mi Instan Goreng Rendang - Indonesia

First, thanks to Robert Z for sending this along! Check out his amazing www.dadbert.com blog!! II mean wow – I’ve been wanting to try these for a while now and figured I would probably never get one. So yeah – it’s in here – real meat! Rendang is also one of my favorite things in the known universe. Here’s a little about it from Wikipedia –

Rendang is a spicy meat dish which originated from Indonesia, especially the ethnic group of Minangkabau people,[2] and is now commonly served across the country.[3] One of the characteristic foods of Minangkabau culture, it is served at ceremonial occasions and to honour guests.[4] Rendang is also served among the Malay community. Rendang is traditionally prepared by the Minangkabau community during festive occasions such as traditional ceremonies, wedding feasts and Hari Raya (Eid al-Fitr).

Although culinary experts often describe rendang as a curry,[2][5] rendang is usually not considered as such in Indonesia since it is richer and contains less liquid than is normal for Indonesian curries.[6] In 2011 an online poll of 35,000 people by CNN International chose rendang as the number one dish of their “World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods (Readers’ Pick)” list.[7] In 2018, rendang is officially recognised as one of 5 national dish of Indonesia.[8]

Awesome – yeah rendang is amazing stuff – if you’re ever near Edmonds, Washington – hit up Waroeng Jajanan on Highweay 99 try the rendang there! Everything else too for that matter – Jonathan makes some wonderful food. Let’s check out this meaty Indonesian variety!

Dry beef chunks and beans combined to make things tasty and really wonderful. I’m thrilled – nice when you get hyped up about something and it ends up being really great. 5.0 ouf of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 089686045017.

#2971: Best Wok Mi Goreng Hot & Spicy Instant Noodles

#2971: Best Wok Mi Goreng Hot & Spicy Instant Noodles

Mi Goreng is a variety of nboodles that I gravitated towards when I was very young. My progressions went from a Japanese chicken variety made in the United States, one from Japan and then boom – Indonesian Mi Goreng. Salty, sweet, spicy. Here’s a bit about it from Wikipedia:

Mie goreng (Indonesianmie goreng or mi gorengMalaymee goreng or mi goreng; both meaning “fried noodles”[3]), also known as bakmi goreng,[4] is a flavourful and often spicy fried noodle dish common in Indonesia,[1][5]MalaysiaBrunei Darussalam, and Singapore. It is made with thin yellow noodles fried in cooking oil with garliconion or shallots, fried prawnchickenbeef, or sliced bakso (meatballs), chili, Chinese cabbagecabbagestomatoesegg, and other vegetables. Ubiquitous in Indonesia, it can be found everywhere in the country, sold by all food vendors from street-hawkers, warungs, to high-end restaurants. It is an Indonesian one-dish meal favourite, although street food hawkers commonly sell it together with nasi goreng (fried rice).[6] It is commonly available at Mamak stalls in Singapore, Brunei Darussalam, and Malaysia and is often spicy. In Sri Lanka, mee goreng is a popular dish due to Malay cultural influences and is sold at street food stalls around the country.

A number of mie goreng variants exist. In Indonesia mie goreng variants are usually named after the ingredients, while some might be named after the region of origin.

  • Mie goreng ayam or common mie goreng uses chicken with shallots, garlic, leek, sweet soy sauce, egg, and vegetables typically added as well.
  • Mie goreng sapi, similar to common traditional mie goreng, but uses beef instead.
  • Mie goreng kambing uses goat meat or mutton.
  • Mie goreng udang uses shrimp.[5]
  • Mie goreng seafood uses seafood which includes mixture of fish, squid, and shrimp.
  • Mie Goreng Aceh a mie goreng variant from Aceh province, which uses thicker noodle similar to that of spaghetti, and employ curry-like rich spicy paste.[13]
  • Mie goreng Jawa from Central Java, employ sweet soy sauce, egg, chicken, and vegetables. In restaurant, warung or travelling food vendor, it usually sold and offered together with mie rebus (lit. “boiled noodle”) or mie Jawa.[14]
  • Mie goreng tek-tek refer to mie goreng sold by travelling street hawkers that hitting the wok making “tek-tek” sounds to announce their wares. The seller with his food cart frequenting the residence areas, usually also offers nasi goreng and mie rebus. It is common in Jakarta and some large cities in Java.
  • Mie goreng dhog-dhog also known as Mie goreng Surabaya from Surabaya city. Refer to travelling food cart vendor selling mie goreng Surabaya that uses large wooden slit drum instead to announce his presence in the neighbourhood, thus creates “dhog-dhog” sounds.[15]

That’s a lot of info on the different varieties. As you can see on t he packaging for this one, chicken. So logically, this falls into the category of the first one. Let’s check it out!

#2798: Indomie Instant Noodles Mi Goreng Fried Noodles (Taiwan-only Version)

#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!

I found this one during my November 2016 trip to Taiwan. So this was at a Jason’s Market at the bottom of the Taipei 101. Mi Goreng is a very popular stir nodle dish. Mi Goreng instant noodles are most well known from Indonesia, indeed where this one is from. Let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about Mi Goreng –

Mie goreng (Indonesian: mie goreng or mi goreng; Malay: mee goreng or mi goreng; both meaning “fried noodles”[3]), also known as bakmi goreng, is a flavorful and spicy fried noodle dish common in Indonesia,[1]Malaysia, and Singapore. It is made with thin yellow noodles fried in cooking oil with garlic, onion or shallots, fried prawn, chicken, beef, or sliced bakso (meatballs), chili, Chinese cabbage, cabbages, tomatoes, egg, and other vegetables. Ubiquitous in Indonesia, it can be found everywhere in the country, sold by all food vendors from street-hawkers, warungs, to high-end restaurants. It is an Indonesian one-dish meal favorite, although street food hawkers commonly sell it together with nasi goreng (fried rice).[4] It is commonly available at Mamak stalls in Singapore and Malaysia and is often spicy.

Sounds good – I’ve been a fan of mi goreng for decades now! So let’s give this one a try.
