Thanksgiving 2011: Re-Review of Indomie Special Fried Curly Noodles Special Quality Instant Noodles

2011_11_24_rrv_001

Before I start the re-review, I just want to say happy Thanksgiving to all – it’s been a great year for me and I’ve got so much to be thankful for. My health, my job, my son and my wife. I also would like to say thanks for all the great fans and contributors to the site – whether by donations or comments, you help make this site thrive.

Today, I thought I’d re-review my favorite instant noodles ever. I have two packs that Greg B. from Florida sent me and I’m going to make them both! I’m going all-out with all the additions too! I know I’ll be having some awesome turkey and trimmings over at my wife’s aunt and uncle’s later, but for now, may I present noodle perfection.

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

Let’s start with a look at the noodles. They are a little broad and flat and so enjoyable.

Here’s four of the five packets – from the left to right, we start with the dehydrated vegetable. Next, the dry powder seasoning. After that in the clear packet we have seasoned oil. Finally, some sweet soy sauce which in Indonesia is referred to as kecap manis.

Here’s everything but the vegetables in this shot. Might not look too appetizing but trust me, this is absolutely delectable once combined with everything else!

Here is the vegetable packets’ contents. You’ve got carrot, onion and surprising to me, TVP (textured vegetable protein) – fake meat!

Here’s a packet all on its own – its got chili powder in it.

Then a little pickled ginger – it has a nice fresh and tangy crunch. I  tossed in a little turkey lunch meat with a couple pinches of pepper on the right and some fried shallot next to the eggs. Atop the eggs I used some Huy Fong Sriracha hot sauce and a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt all around.

This was absolutely wonderful stuff. The flavors all come together in a bowl of complete awesomeness. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. My all time favorite! I can’t recommend it any higher. You can get the close relative of this variety, the grilled chicken version here. Instead of a chili powder packet it sports a packet you add a little liquid too and adds a nice tasty bit of broth. This is great since you can break the soft yolk first and pour the liquid over it, making a rich and hearty broth. Damn good stuff!

A rather long Indomie commercial. Lebaran is an Islamic holiday – read about it here. Indomie is to Indonesia as Coca Cola is to the United States; they’re a household name.
