The noodle block.

A dual sachet – soup base on the left and chilli powder on the right.

The chilli powder atop the very powdery soup base.

Seasoned oil.

Has a little bit of a garlic beef scent.

The gurih powder.

Personally, I like this sprinkled on top.

The vegetables sachet.

Little beans and vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out nicely – good chew and texture and good quantity. The broth had a kind of gritty beefiness to it, vaguely stew-like. The little beans were definitely not to my liking and pulled it down quite a bit for me. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8998866200851.

#1750: Mie Sedaap Instant Cup Mi Kuah Rasa Soto

It’s been really nice having some Indonesian varieties to review again! Seemed like it almost went a whole year without any until recently! This one might confuse Westerners that see it on the shelf so I’ll help you out. Let’s break down Mi Kuah Rasa Soto. It directly translates to noodle soup, soto flavor. Now, soto is a popular Indonesian soup and seems to usually have a lime aspect to it which is very nice. This cup has a lot of stuff going on inside – let’s walk through it.

#1737: Mie Sedaap Instant Cup Mi Goreng

It’s been really hard to find new varieties from Indonesia lately and I was really stoked to find a total of four of them the other day! I always try to keep things mixed up – reviewing a different product from a different country every day if possible. It can be tough sometimes but lately I’ve been ending up with quite a range of varieties which is great. Anyways, let’s check out this one from Indonesia!

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, take everything out. Add in the vegetables sachet and fill to line with boiling water and let steep covered for 4 minutes. Poke holes in the lid and use to drain off water. Add in contents of remaining sachets except fried onions. Stir well and then garnish with fried onion. Enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge). It’s hard to see, but on the right side there’s a spot to poke a hole.

An included fork!

The noodle block.

The powder seasoning base.

A very light powder.

A triple sachet (from left to right): chilli sauce, seasoned oil and sweet soy sauce.

The three mingling in a cup.

The vegetables sachet.

Lots of little bits of greenery.

The garnish sachet.

Crunchy fried onion.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added white onion, kerupuk aci, shrimp and lime. The noodles were round in nature and rather light. The flavor leaned more towards the sweet and the oiliness made it very slippery. I detected a light spiciness to it. The fried onion was very good. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8998866200813.

Here’s the pack version – Mie Goreng Asli (Fried Noodle Original) – (Pack of 10)

This is Mi Goreng – made by Indomie’s chief competitor. Will it stack up to Indomie Mi Goreng? Let’s see – the battle begins!

From left to right: Kecap Manis (sweet soy sauce), manas pedas (chili sauce), seasoned oil and bumbo (powder seasoning.

They all wait on a plate for the drained noodles and some stirring.

Some onions that will go atop the finished product.

Click image to enlarge. Package back. Notice the onion pack is of ‘plant origin,’

Click image to enlarge. Finished. Added a couple fried eggs and some pickled ginger. Those little funny pebbles are the fried onions. So the noodles are okay – actually slightly lesser quality in my opinion than Indomie but just slightly. The flavor of the noodles is excellent – a little spicy and a bit less sweet than Indomie’s. The onions are awesome – crispy and perfectly cooked. So no, it isn’t Indomie; it’s Mie Sedaap, and it’s

really quite good. It’s tough not making it a comparison kind of thing since I’m such a big fan of Indomie’s products. This will do in a pinch though and it is quite excellent. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here.

#549: Wings Food Mie Sedaap Supreme Soto Soup Noodle

Something new from Indonesia? Sure why not. The front mentions extra delicious fresh lime as an ingredient – sounds good to me!

The packet on the left has the powdered seasoning and tchili powder and the one on the right has seasoned oil.

Looks good to me – one thing I noticed was that the seasoned oil had a very nice lime scent to it.

This is something quite new to me – after cooking the noodles and the whole shbang is done, you sprinkle this stuff on top. I tasted it but not sure what it is.

The tasty powder apparently is from a plant. What plant? That’s a secret. Oh come on!!! Nope. Secret plant, dude.

Click image to enlarge. I added a couple fried eggs, some fried shallot and some pickled ginger. The noodles are nice – firm and thin. The broth has quite a lime flavor to it and quite a spiciness that went well since I used all of the chili powder. The added ‘tasty powder’ has this indescribable depth to it – almost a woody taste. It was very different. All said and done I liked this one quite a bit. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here.

Yup – this stuff is good – can’t blame the kid for not wanting to share. He’s grubbin’ on the Mie Goreng (fried noodles) though.

#542: Wingsfood Mi Sedaap Mi Sup Perisa Ayam Istimewa (Artificial Chicken Special Flavor)

Hey this looks shmancy! Nothing better than an interesting new pack of noodles from Indonesia.

A dual packet containing seasoned powder and chili powder as well as a seasoned oil packet.

Yup – another new bowl. From the way this stuff smells, it’s gonna be good!

Click image to enlarge. Finished product, with a couple of fried eggs, of course. The noodles were a little most robust and chewy than your regular fare – very nice. The broth was pretty good too, although have had better  when it comes to chicken ramen. All in all not too bad but nothing really to cheer about. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here.

Mi Sedaap commercial!

I’m quite jealous of this guy – I have a couple Osbornes that DON’T work.

#435: Wingsfood Mie Sedaap Instant Mie Sambal Goreng

Sweet! Two days in a row of Indonesian delicacy! Today we have one with mention of Sambal in the title. Sambal equals spicy! Should be good!

Okay so clockwise from the top left we have the delicious fried onions that will be sprinkled on the finished product, dry powdered seasoning known as bumbu, a thick sweet black soy sauce called kecap manis, a chili sauce which usually is manis pedas but I think is where the sambal seasoning is contained, and finally some seasoned oil.

Some crazy looking stuff here! The seasoned oil is the opaque on top top left, then the chili sauce and then the soy sauce with the powder bumbu at the bottom.

Click image to enlarge. The finished product with the nice little bots of fried onion sprinkled. This is what I was expecting yesterday – noodles are cooked and then drained and stirred on a bowl with the seasonings. So yeah this is some great stuff! Some spiciness going on that’s for sure! The onion was as advertised – delicious! Impressive! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.

#434: Wingsfood Mie Sedaap Instant Kari Spesial Bumbu Kari Kental

So today we went and looked for noodles at the HT Oaktree on 100th & Aurora in Seattle. Found these new Indonesian noodles! Sweet! Kari translates to curry!!!

Nice to be greeted by so many packets! From left to right we have dry powder seasoning, chili powder, fried onions and then the seasoned oil. This is where the curry taste lie as it smelled so nice.

Wow now that looks crazy! I expected these noodles to be like Mi Goreng stuff from Indomie but it is definitely not the same. This one has a broth!

Click image to enlarge. So here’s the finished result with a couple fried eggs tossed in. So this was really good – I expected something non soupy from Indonesia but this was just fine with me! A nice sweet curry flavor, a lovely color and flavor. I loved it – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.
