#3083: Burung Layang Terbang Kweitiau Kuah Rasa Ayam Bawang - Indonesia

Here’s one I found over at Waroeng Jajanan, the amazing Indonesian store on 99 in Edmonds. If you’re in Washington state and interested in anything Indonesian entering your stomach, go there. Trust me on this.

This is a rice noodle soup. You might recognize kweitiau from char kway teow (Malay) – Kuah means soup. Ayam bawang? Onion chicken. Let’s do this!

Meet The Manufacturer: #2664: Maitri Instant Noodle Vegetarian Soup Flavor

Here’s another vegetarian one from Maitri – this one being an instant noodle with broth. As I have to remind people, I won’t be coming out with a top ten vegetarian list. I wish I could, but it’s just a point of so much contention I should go a little into it.

One would think vegetarian is simple – you just don’t eat any meat. Well, it’s not that simple. Some people won’t eat certain flavor enhancers that may have come from meat but can’t be seen on the packaging whether they do or not. some people won’t eat honey because it’exploits bees.’

I’m kind of a black and white guy; If I’m going to do a list of everything from say Iceland – everything would be from Iceland. If they were all beef flavors, it would be all beef flavors. So I can’t be as specific and encompassing with vegetarian.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2663: Alhami Instant Noodle Soto Flavor

I reviewed a Maitri Soto variety earlier in this series, and since Jonathan at Waroeng Jajanan gave me some Soto Betawi, I thought I ought to review the non-vegetarian version to take advantage of the niceties therein. Here’s a little about Soto from Wikipedia –

Soto (also known as srototauto, or coto) is a traditional Indonesian soup mainly composed of broth, meat and vegetables. Many traditional soups are called soto, whereas foreign and Western influenced soups are called sop.

Soto is sometimes considered Indonesia’s national dish, as it is served from Sumatra to Papua, in a wide range of variations. Soto is omnipresent in Indonesia, available in many warungs and open-air eateries on many street corners, to fine dining restaurants and luxurious hotels.[1] Soto, especially soto ayam (chicken soto), is an Indonesian equivalent of chicken soup. Because it is always served warm with a tender texture, it is considered an Indonesian comfort food.[2][3][4]

Because of the proximity and significant numbers of Indonesian migrants working and settling in neighbouring countries, soto can also be found in Singapore and Malaysia, and has become a part of their cuisine.

Introduced to Suriname by Javanese migrants, it is part of the national cuisine of that country as well, where it is spelled saoto.[5]

I’m really excited about this series – and the fact that I’m getting some help from a local business.

Maitri is Olagafood’s vegetarian product line. So far, I’ve been pretty impressed; the flavors are quite good and it’s been a lot of fun reviewing them. This one is a vegetarian mie goreng – here’s a little about mie goreng from Wikipedia –

Mie goreng (Indonesianmie goreng or mi gorengMalaymee goreng or mi goreng; both meaning “fried noodles”[3]), also known as bakmi goreng,[4] is a flavourful and spicy fried noodle dish common in Indonesia,[1][5]MalaysiaBrunei Darussalam and Singapore. It is made with thin yellow noodles fried in cooking oil with garliconion or shallots, fried prawnchickenbeef, or sliced bakso (meatballs), chili, Chinese cabbagecabbagestomatoesegg, 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 favourite, although street food hawkers commonly sell it together with nasi goreng (fried rice).[6] It is commonly available at Mamak stalls in Singapore, Brunei Darussalam and Malaysia and is often spicy.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2556: Mikka Noodle Snack Roasted Corn Flavour

Whenever I see the word ‘corn’ on anything Southeast Asia, I always think of when I was at the airport in Penang, Malaysia. There was a little snack stall in there and it mentioned ‘corn in a cup.’ I thought this was the most fantastic thing; what could that possibly be? Our host looked at me like I was high and said plainly ‘it’s corn – in a cup.’

That was one of the embarrassing moments in Malaysia I had. The one I remember most glaringly was while we drove around Penang, he had the radio on all the time playing popular music. Well, I figured it was all Malaysian, maybe some European music thrown in.

A song played a lot. It was so damn catchy – I almost wanted to sing along with it. I remember how I thought that the lyrics must have been referencing something foreign; really I did. I asked ‘who is this? This is rad’ and got the worst answer.

‘Taylor Swift.’

See, the things I do for my readers – I admit to being lulled into the complacency of logic by a poppy Taylor Swift tune while in an exotic land. So let’s leave that in Malaysia and head for Indonesia and try some corn noodle snacks. By the way, don’t tell anyone about the Taylor Swift thing, aight?

Meet Ther Manufacturer: #2655: Alhami Instant Noodle Prawn Flavour

I really like prawns – especially the big ones. Mantis prawns are really big – had those in Malaysia. The river prawns in Thailand are spectacular and prepared right they’re just as succulent as can be. I don’t know much about prawns in Indonesia. Let’s ask Wikipedia –

The Indian prawn (Fenneropenaeus indicus, formerly Penaeus indicus), is one of the major commercial prawn species of the world. It is found in the Indo-West Pacific from eastern and south-eastern Africa, through IndiaMalaysia and Indonesia to southern China and northern Australia.[3] Adult shrimp grow to a length of about 22 cm (9 in) and live on the seabed to depths of about 90 m (300 ft). The early developmental stages take place in the sea before the larvae move into estuaries. They return to the sea as sub-adults.

The Indian prawn is used for human consumption and is the subject of a sea fishery, particularly in China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand. It is also the subject of an aquaculture industry, the main countries involved in this being Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Iran and India. For this, wild seed is collected or young shrimps are reared in hatcheries and kept in ponds as they grow. The ponds may be either extensive with reliance on natural foods, with rice paddy fields being used in India after the monsoon period, or semi-intensive or intensive, with controlled feeding. Harvesting is by drainage of the pond

Well, that’s not exactly what I was looking for, but it looks like Indian prawns may be what this variety is fashioned after. A lot of the time in my travels, prawns are served shell on. This is really hard for me – I’m not great at peeling them. In time though. The way I figure it, I want to learn everything I can about the way people eat in Asia. I mean, having peeled shrimp and prawns served to you is much easier, but I think that kind of makes it harder for them to be prepared in as many ways. Well, let’s have a look at this one and see what it’s like.

Well, well, well, I do love me some curry. Especially when it mentions that it’s hot! Maitri is the range that Olagafood makes that has all vegetarian-friendly options. Here’s a little about this flavor in Indonesia from Wikipedia –

In Indonesia curry is called kari or kare. The most common type of kari consumed in Indonesia is kari ayam (chicken curry) and kari kambing (goat meat curry). In Aceh and North Sumatra roti cane is often eaten with kari kambing. Other dishes such as gulai and opor are dishes based on curry. They are often highly localised and reflect the meat and vegetables available. They can therefore employ a variety of meats (chicken, beef, water buffalo and goat as in the flavoursome gulai kambing), seafood (such as prawn, crab, mussel, clam, and squid), fish (tuna, mackerel, carp, pangasius, catfish), or vegetables (young jackfruit, common beans, cassava leaf) dishes in a spiced sauce. They use local ingredients such as chili pepperskaffir lime leaves, lemongrassgalangalIndonesian bay leaves (salam leaf), candlenuts, turmeric, turmeric leaves, asam gelugur and asam kandis (sour mangosteens similar to tamarind), shrimp paste (terasi), cumin, coriander seed and coconut milk

One popular dish, rendang from West Sumatran cuisine, is often described as caramelised beef dry curry. In Indonesia, rendang is usually not considered to be curry since it is richer and contains less liquid than is normal for Indonesian curries. Authentic rendang uses water buffalo meat slow-cooked in thick coconut milk for a number of hours to tenderise, caramelise, and flavour the meat. Opor Ayam is another variation of curry, which tastes very similar to gulai. Opor is usually whitish in colour and uses neither cinnamon nor turmeric, while gulai may contain either or both. Opor is also often part of a family meal around Lebaran, while gulai can be commonly found in Padang restaurants.

I’m really excited about this series – and the fact that I’m getting some help from a local business. Jonathan over at Waroeng Jajanan. The store and restaurant combo is just an amazing place to check out authentic Indonesian cuisine, and you’ll be seeing a lot of (pretty much all) that I add in the end being from there in this series. Alright – let’s check out this one from Maitri as part of Meet The Manufacturer!

Let’s see how hot this hot curry is!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added (prepared by Waroeng Jajanan) vegetable fritter, sambal ijo, Indonesian pickle and (my own) coriander. noodle was soft with a nice gauge and mellowness. Good quantity. The broth indeed has a hotter level of curry – spicier. The included oil sachet gave the broth more of a robust feel as well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 034126937292.
