#2417: Super Bihun Bihun Kuah Rasa Baso Sapi - Indonesia - The Ramen Rater - rice vermicelli - beehoon

I reviewed this probably over 1000 reviews or more ago, but I noticed on this one it says it’s got a new formula. So bihun is rice vermicelli. But baso sapi – what’s that? Wikipedia, if you please:

Bakso or baso is Indonesian meatball,[2] or meat paste made from beef surimi.[3] Its texture is similar to the Chinese beef ball, fish ball, or pork ball. The term bakso could refer to a single meatball or the whole bowl of meatballs soup.

Bakso can be found all across Indonesia; from the traveling cart street vendors to restaurants. Next to soto, satay and siomay, bakso is one of the popular street food in Indonesia.[4] Today, various types of ready to cook bakso also available as frozen food commonly sold in supermarkets in Indonesia.

Beef meatball – sounds good. So let’s give this baso sapi flavored vermicelli a try!

Has a garlic scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, tofu puff, Salad Cosmo mung bean sproutsd and coriander. The vermicelli is awesome – I like how it has a kind of fluffy character to it it without being mushy. The broth has a very good flavor; a kind of garlic and onion taste with a nice underlying beef kind of hit. The oiliness is on point and the chilli powder gives a little touch of spice. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8994357010046.

#1261: Meet The Manufacturer: Eat & Go Rasa Baso Sapi Meat Ball Mi Instan Cup

I wanted to do something special with this one. Recently, I visited Waroeng Jajanan, an Indonesian grocery nearby. As it turns out, they make Indonesian style meatballs! I didn’t want to make this without sampling them, so this is a really exciting one for me! Honestly, I’ve never had Indonesian food other than instant noodles before! Let’s check it out!

The side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add all sachet contents except the tofu chips to the cup and add boiling water to the fill line. Steep for three minutes, stir and add tofu chips on top.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added greens and a large meatball from Waroeng Jajanan and some hard boiled egg. The noodles were as good as usual – nice gauge and texture. The broth was a nice meaty flavor and had a decent heartiness. The tofu chips were a nice addition (not pictured as I forgot to add them in in this shot). 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

By the way – the big meatball from Waroeng Jajanan was absolutely delectable! I wish I would’ve gotten a picture of what was inside this amazing thing – a perfectly cooked hard boiled egg with a soft yolk! Thank you! Wonderful! 5.0 out of 5.0 for their food! I’ll be doing a review of something else I got from there today after the Meet The Manufacturer is over. UPC bar code 8992388112807.

I thought the computer voice on this was a little odd!

#552: Super Bihun Instant Rice Noodles Bihun Kuah Rasa Baso Sapi

Here we go with another of the Super Bihun products – Bihun Kuah Rasa Baso Sapi. Wow – what a name! From having Indomie products many times, I was able to figure out this is meatball flavor. Also, it’s got the little bomb logo on the top left! Awesome!

Powder, chili powder and then the seasoned oil.

The back of the package (click image to enlarge).

A triumvirate of flavors ready for the ultimate in unions: flavor to cooked noodle.

Click image to enlarge. Weird – so the noodles are a little mushy but for rice noodles, I like them quite a bit. The broth, which is almost more of a gravy affair, was good but had an interestingly preservative tinged aftertaste I can’t put my finger on. It was a charming and exotic bowl from Indonesia – 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Re-Review: Indomie Mi Goreng Satay AND Rasa Baso Sapi (Meatball Flavor

So after seeing an article or two about Indomie’s problems with ‘noodlegate,’ I thought I’d show my support by eating two packages for breakfast. These are some of the best packages of noodles ever – they’re both reviewed on here already, so this is a re-review. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. Big time – good stuff here!

Two packages of noodles. Eight packets. EIGHT OF THEM! Indomie is awesome!

Wow some crazy looking bizarreness in this bowl…

So here we are greeted by the lovely vision of delectableness I have been cooking up for years. Added a couple fried eggs, some kizami shoga (pickled ginger), fried shallots and a little bit of Jufran Hot Banana sauce! Yeah – banana sauce! It’s about 80 cents a bottle and comes from the Philippines. Reminds me of Indonesian Manas Pedas sauce which is usually paired with these noodles – it’s a sweet and hot sauce. So this banana stuff works great in lieu of having that. Anyways, here’s the best bowl I really can think of right now. Get the satay here and the meatball here.

#76: Indomie Rasa Baso Sapi Meatball Flavor Instant Noodles

So today I made Kitten some noodles for breakfast! This is some tasty stuff!

Seasoning powder, seasoned oil. That’s it. This is pretty surprising for an Indomie pack of noodles as there’s usually a ton of different packets. She didn’t want it too spicy so I kept the chili powder out of the mix.

So the finished product (click image to enlarge): the noodles are hidden by three fried eggs with a little salt and pepper and fried shallot on top.

So the end result? She liked it a lot! Here’s her review:

“I would say 2.5 (out of 5 stars). They were flavorful and the only way I can describe it is it was like it was spicy but without any heat. It was also very salty and that was a bit of a turn off. The egg on top helped set off the taste of the salt but once it was gone it was almost too much. The “meatballs” tasted only slightly meaty and the crunchiness gave the ramen nice texture.” Get it here.
