#895: SuperMi Sedaaap Mi Goreng & Citrojugo Lime Juice Review

Here’s one of the last couple from my friend in Jakarta, Indonesia – thanks again – mailed off your sticker yesterday! Mi Goreng – always a tasty treat! Today, I’m doing things a little differently. Not only am I reviewing these noodles but…

A few weeks ago, I received an email from a representative of Citrojugo. They make lime juice – in fact, they make a lot of lime juice! They wanted to know if I would be interested in purchasing some of their lime juiced for use with my products. I let them know I don’t make anything, I just review, but I would be happy to review their lime juice, not that I’m a lime juice expert or anything. Here’s what they sent – almost a liter of thick, cloudy lime juice concentrate. This stuff is potent! Decided to marinate a chicken breast with it, some chicken broth and Cavendar’s Greek seasoning. We’ll see how it came out further down.

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

Part of the noodle block.

Here we have the crispy fried onion garnish and powder seasoning.

Crunchy stuff!

Powder seasoning.

Liquid seasonings: chili sauce and sweet soy sauce/oil mixture.

Lots of it.

I put the chicken breast in the over in a 8×8 dish with the Citrojugo lime juice, chicken broth and seasoning, covered and baked for 50 minutes. Looks pretty good to me!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added yellow onions, green bell pepper, broccoli, hard boiled egg with Krazy Mixed Up Salt, Dua Belibis chili sauce, kizami shoga (pickled ginger) and some baked chicken marinated in Citrojugo lime juice concentrate with a little Cavender’s Greek Seasoning. The noodles are great – not too chewy, not at all soggy. The flavor of the powder and liquid give it a sweet and spicy taste that can only be described as Mi Goreng – wonderful! The crunchy fried onions are an absolute treat. These are great 5.0/5.0 stars noodles. As for the lime juice, I can’t say that I’m any form of authority on lime juice, but its really good with the chicken! I has a crisp and tasty acidity that makes the chicken taste great! Best concentrated lime juice I’ve ever had the fortune to sample. Special thanks to Jazmin at Citrojugo! UPC bar code 089686915709 .

Wow I wish they sold this stuff here! Really wish I had a SuperMi bowl and apron for when I’m making it too!

Happy Eid al-Adha! Here’s a Wikipedia link for those not familiar with this holiday.

#870: SuperMi Mi Keriting Rasa Ayam Bawang

Here’s another one that from my friend in Jakarta, Indonesia was kind enough to send – thanks again! So curly noodles with onion chicken flavor – sounds tasty!

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

Unbroken noodle block.

Powder seasoning on the left and chili powder on the right.

Here’s the seasoning powder with the chili powder on top.

Seasoned oil.

Looks interesting – and it has a strong onion scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies, a couple fried eggs with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some Dua Belibis. The noodles were nice – slightly springy and just right. The broth was nice – a slight spiciness, good chicken taste and strong onion flavor. Good stuff! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686014679 .

Check out this SuperMi commercial – and the heart shapoed hard boiled egg slices! That’s pretty rad – wonder how they do that…

Thanks egg dude, you da man.

#765: Super Bihun Instant Rice Noodles Kuah

Here’s another one that was lurking in the bottom of the hamper! Been kind of wondering where it had gone – well, here it is! I must say this is my favorite logo ever – looks like a heart and a bomb, doesn’t it? Curious how this one will be. Let’s go!

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

Yeah – rice noodles. Hoping for the best here.

Here’s a dual packet – seasoning on the left and chili powder on the right.

Here’s the chili powder atop the seasoning.

Here’s a packet of seasoned oil.

Here is is, ready to go.

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles are extremely thin and actually really quite good – borderline mushy but not in a bad way. The broth was a little thick which was enjoyable – I could see this as a very nice winter stick to your ribsy kind of. It has a strong salt and pepper and onion taste to it I really liked. Interesting and very basic – maybe some chicken and green veggies. I like it very much – it’s genuine and good. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8994357010022 – get it here.

Gangga Island diving – looks pretty awesome

Franchising in Jakarta perhaps?

#343: Super Bihun Goreng Instant Fried Rice Noodles

This is definitely the most unique of all the packages of noodles I have ever found. Let’s get started.

Just under where it says Super, notice the little logo? It looks like a falling bomb! I don’t know what else it could be considered to be – so to start off with, that’s pretty awesome. The red banner going across exclaims “Instant Bihun Lezaaat!”  I thought this was weirdness, but I figured I’d better get digging. Google Translate says Bihun means Angerl Hair and didn’t come up with anything for lezaaat, but lezat means delicious.

Okay now in the image of the food, I gotta say that a chicken drumstick chucked in the middle of noodles is something I find most weird.

Finally, bottom right – Ekstra Minyak Bawang – translates to extra garlic oil.

These look really familiar – like the Mi Goreng by Indomie. These also come from Indonesia so I’d imagine that’s why. From right to left, garlic seasoned oil, sweet soy sauce and chili sauce.

Here’s the bomb – I mean the bumbu – I mean the sauce – I mean the powdered seasoning…

I thought a pic of the noodles would be good since they are a little interesting. Also, this is a drain thing – you drain the noodles.

After draining you put them in a bowl that has the seasonings and stir. Clockwise from top: powdered seasoning, garlic oil, sweet soy sauce and chili sauce.

Click image to enlarge. Bam. Two fried eggs, a little fried shallot and some kizami shoga – pickled ginger. This was really really good stuff! It reminded me of some of Indomie’s things – the Mi Goreng line for sure. I liked the noodles and the seasonings were very nice too. Altogether, this was a very enjoyable and satisfying breakfast. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s how to make it homemade!
