#3270: Fitmee Konjac Chicken Soto – Indonesia

#3270: Fitmee Konjac Chicken Soto - Indonesia

The second of the Fitmee varieties sent by Empire International – thanks again! I sampled the first a couple days ago and was very impressed – it was a kind of buldak dry version that was pretty good and only 150 calories! This one has a soto flavor and is – get this – only 60 calories! What’s soto? Here’s some info from Wikipedia –

In the Indonesian archipelago, soto is known by different names. In the local Javanese dialect, it is called soto, and the dish also reached Makassar where it is called coto. Soto is found to be most prevalent in Java, and suggested that the hearty soup was originated from that island, and over the years this dish branched off in an assorted array of soto varieties.[7]

Although soto was undoubtedly developed in the Indonesian archipelago and each region has developed its own distinctive soto recipes, some historians suggest that it was probably influenced by foreign culinary tradition, especially ChineseDenys Lombard in his book Le Carrefour Javanais suggested that the origin of soto was a Chinese soup, caudo (Chinese草肚pinyintsháu-tōo; literally “Tripe”), popular in Semarang among Chinese immigrants during colonial VOC era, circa 17th century.[8]

Another scholar suggests that it was more likely a mixture of cooking traditions in the region, namely Chinese, Indian, and native Indonesian cuisine.[9] There are traces of Chinese influence such as the use of bihun (rice vermicelli) and the preference for fried garlic as a condiment, while the use of turmeric suggests Indian influence. Another example is soto betawi from Jakarta uses minyak samin (ghee), which indicates Arab or Muslim Indian influences.[10] Another historian suggest that some soto recipe reflects the past condition of its people. Soto tangkar, which today is a meat soup, was mostly made from the broth of goat rib-cage bones (Betawi:tangkar) in the past because meat was expensive, or the common population of Batavia were too poor to afford some meat back then.[11] Soto recipes has been highly localized according to local tradition and available ingredients, for example in Hindu-majority island of Bali, soto babi (pork soto) can be found, since Hindu Balinese prefer pork while beef is seldom consumed, they also do not shared Indonesian Muslim halal dietary law that forbid the consumption of pork.

The meat soup dish influenced various regions and each developed its own recipes, with the ingredients being highly localized according to available ingredients and local cooking traditions. As a result, rich variants of soto were developed across Indonesia.

Alrighty – let’s see how this soup version comes out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Cook noodle block and vegetable sachet contents for 5 minutes in 400ml boiling water. Add all but shallot sachet in and stir. Garnish with shallot and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dry sachet of soup base (watch the Instant Noodle Recipe Time video below for implementation of sachets).

A wet sachet of seasoned oil.

A dry sachet of vegetables.

Dry garnish sachet of fried shallot.

A final dry sachet of chili powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added lime, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, spring onion, Sambal Matah, egg, chili flake, and baked chicken. Okay, this is the real deal, folks. The konjac came out quite well – still somewhat extra springy, but it is just overwhelmed in such a great way by the broth. The broth has such a beautiful balance of lime, hints of spiciness and coconut and it just blew my mind so much I even forgot to add the shallot flake in there – which I tried separately and found to be pretty good. But I’ll try it again tomorrow because ITS ONLY 60 CALORIES!!! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8997006448993.

#3109: Wu-Mu Jing Xiang Ban Mian Ramen Soup - Chili Beef Flavor - Taiwan

Today, we’ve got a nice one from Taiwan’s Wu-Mu. This is a newer variety that uses wide gauge noodles for a soup – something I find really interesting and not done nearly enough. Although these noodles are absolutely excellent in a dry noodle (without broth) setting, I think in soup they really excel too. Let’s see how these end up!

#3004: Wei Lih Hell Spicy Dry Noodle With Soup - Taiwan

One of the waning few I dragged back from Taiwan with me from my 2017 trip! This is a fascinating variety – it’s one that has a soup and a noodle. Wait, how? What?

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Chinese sausage and scallions. The noodles has a nice gauge and a tad bit of sponginess. This is easily overlooked however, as the flavor on the noodle is very good. A spicy taste with a nice heat level and tastiness. The broth has a lt of bits floating around which add to it. Alone, they’re a kind of humdrum set, however paired they work excellent – you have a bite of the spicy noodles, then have a little slurp of soup. Aptly turns into a back and forth which seems natural. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6710199037591.

It’s funny how people hear something is bad for them, believe it, and then hold onto that concept for dear life. It’s kind of like Splenda. Used to have cookies with it and then my mom and sister would eat them and thoroughly enjoyed them and wanted to have more. After the second cookie, I told them they were made with Splenda. Boom. ‘Oh – yeah they’re kind of strange. Oh we don’t like those. You wanted to eat all of them until you found out Splenda was in them. Same thing with MSG. As well as climate change not being real… As well as going blind by sitting close to a TV. Bombardment by misinformation is a powerful thing. Just look at who’s in the White House…

It kind of confuses me on this one – I mean, yeah, it says ‘the original’ and doesn’t really say that there’s been a recipe change. But there has – now there’s no MSG and no artificial flavors., plus a reduction in sodium. These aren’t bad things at all of course, but I’m just kind of left wondering – so shouldn’t it say new and improved instead of ‘the original?’ Anyways, let’s see what’s in this, one of the Vegetarian varieties in the Top Ramen range.

Not enough to kick you out of bed but enough to make the timid back off in the spicy department. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662010174.

#2931: Maruchan Ramen Noodle Soup Creamy Chicken Flavor (New Packaging)

Yesterday, I needed a new pair of pants. I’m not into ultra fashionable stuff – like paying $100 for jeans, so we went to Walmart. Walmart is an interesting place – you’ll see some interesting people there – especially at the one in Lynnwood, Washington. When we got out of the car, there was the sound of some guy at the other side of the parking lot screaming obscenities at someone or some thing – unsure. But that was entertaining. In the store, we g ot to see a lady with a very small dog barking at everyone and every thing ( apparently, if you have an ’emotional support’ dog you can bring it with you, but this dog needed emotional support and was definitely not providing it for anyone). I did get some new pants, and they were extremely cheap. $16 for pants. It’s been a while since we’ve been to Walmart so I thought a trip down the domestic instant noodle aisle might be in order. Surprisingly, they had a very small amount of them, however they did have this pack. Creamy Chicken has been one of my absolute favorites for a very,  very long time. I am curious to see whether or not they’ve changed the recipe as that seems to be a popular thing to do in the US instant noodle market right now. Let’s crack open this new package design and give it a try!

They have a decent and very standard gauge and suck up just enough broth. The broth has a very easy going creamy chicken taste, creaminess thanks to non-dairy creamer. Definitely my all-time favorite of the US Maruchan pillow pack range. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 041789002519.

Well would you look at that! Top Ramen. An American original. You might be thinking ‘aww that’s Japanese,’ but this stuff is as American as it gets. The flavor is made to appeal to the local market. What bums me out is when I say ‘an American original’ all I can think about is my favorite political show which is no more. My dad used to watch The McLaughlin Group for years and I finally hit an age after he was gone that I checked it out and got hooked on it. I’d torture poor Andy and make him watch it all the time. But Dr. McLaughlin died a couple years ago, and they ended the series long run. I would be curious how it would have been if he would have stayed alive longer – how the show would be these days. Anyways, I’ve gone way off track. So soy sauce is known as Shoyu in Japan. This is a kind of Shoyu ramen. Let’s check i tout!

They have a very standard baseline kind of chew – slight plumpness works but just seems a hint less chew than should be. The broth seems much changed from the original Oriental’ flavor. This new recipe definitely has strong notes of mushroom, undoubtedly from replacement of artificial flavors. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662010013.

After a long time, it’s finally happened. I’ve thought for ages that a product with these broad noodles and a soup would be really interesting! Here’s what they have to say about it –

●The width of the noodle is perfect-proportioned. The middle of wavy noodles are thick, while the both sides are thin, that is why the sauce is more easily stuck in the noodle itself, creating different layers of the tastes!
●The only soup noodle of the whole series.
●The product is made in the authentic way of making Sichuan spicy beef flavored soup noodle, so that it gives off an unique fragrance.
●Top Sichuan pepper with watercress, laurel, star anise and fennel make the spicy soup which is rich and refreshing but not pungent at all.
