#2438: World O'Noodle Mi Goreng Original Flavour Fried Noodles - Indonesia - The Ramen Rater - instant noodle

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.

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: MAMA Instant Rice Vermicelli Bihun Goreng Perisa Asli

Today, we bid a fond farewell to the President Rice instant series with this Bihun Goreng. This product is probably self-explanatory to many, but I’ll give a little more to those who are unfamiliar. Mee goreng is a noodle that is boiled, drained and then seasoned and garnished. Bihun goreng is basically the same, however done with rice vermicelli. Let’s give it a try – and my thanks to President Rice Products for making this Meet The Manufacturer happen!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add vermicelli to a bowl and cover with boiling water. cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. stir and enjoy!

I gave it a few cuts with kitchen scissors to make it more manageable. The flavor is kind of a sweet, salty and spicy affair – just as bihun goreng should be! I really like this stuff a lot – a great change from a fried wheat noodle. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8851876000234.,

#1694: MAMA Instant Rice Vermicelli Bihun Goreng Original Flavor

I’m sure many of you are familiar with Mi Goreng. For those of you who aren’t, Mi Goreng translates to ‘fried noodle.’ Mi Goreng basically are noodles that are cooked, drained, dropped in a wok or skillet, and fried with different seasonings and ingredients. Now Bihun Goreng is a little different. Instead of a wheat noodle, rice vermicelli is used the same kind of way. Rice vermicelli are very thin rice noodles. Instead of broth, these are broth free. They’re kind of distant cousins of yakisoba, yakiudon and chow mein. Let’s check out this Bihun Goreng from MAMA of Thailand!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, put noodle block into a bowl and cover with boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents and combine well. Enjoy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added spring onion, shrimp and white onion with some Healthy Boy brand soy sauce, hard boiled egg with Nguang Soon Dried Chilli Powder and some coriander. The noodles hydrated very nicely during the steeping process. Not too dry and had a substantial chew to them. I also would recommend using some kitchen scissors on them to do a couple cuts to make the length a little shorter – a trick I picked up from the first time I tried South Korean potato noodles. . The have a very nice flavor – sweet, salty and spicy. The spiciness definitely builds to a really exuberant crescendo! Great flavor and texture! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8851876000234.

#556: Wings Food Mie Sedaap Mi Goreng Perisa Asli

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. 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.
