Re-Review: Indomie Mi Instan Rasa Mi Cakalang

Of the re-reviews I’ve done recently, I would say this is one of the most recent. Here’s the link for it’s first review, #858. Cakalang is also known as Skipjack tuna.


Finished (click to enlarge). I added some sweet onion, a fried egg with some Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Dua Belibis chili sauce. This stuff packs from heat! The noodles are your standard Indomie – nice texture and spring. The broth is spicy and has a nice tuna flavor along. There was a packet of garnish, which was dried tuna bits and was quite tasty. I like this a lot! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 08968604302 .

#728: Meet The Manufacturer: Indomie Mi Instan Rasa Kari Ayam Medan Khas Sumatera Utara (Medan Chicken Curry)

Here’s another one of the regional special varieties that Indomie makes. This one’s chicken curry from Medan, a city in Indonesia. Let’s give it a try! By the way – check out the interview I did with Indomie here!

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

The noodle block awaits the bath of boiling water.

The very familiar Indomie packet combo – powdered seasoning on the left and chili powder on the right.

IHere’s the contents of the packets – I only used part of the chili powder.

A big packet of seasoned oil.

Has a sweet scent.

Finally, the finishing touch – the garnish! Fried onions! Slightly more than usual.

These add a nice little crunch.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some local veggies from the Country Farms produce stand, a little chicken lunch meat and a bit of kizami shoga (pickled ginger).  Ohhh I do enjoy curry! The noodles are great – good firmness and good amount of them. The broth is awesome – a great curry flavor – rich and tasty! The fried onion on top of everything adds a nice little crunch. This is where it’s at curry fans! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 089686011166 – althought you can’t get this one in the United States, there is an Indomie variety that is curry flavored called Rasa Kari Ayam – no Medan in the title but very good stuff. You can get it in the US, too – here it is.

This guy has a great Indonesian Kari Ayam recipe! Check it out!
