I’ve finally run out of flavours available at my local Asian supermarket, so when I went on a quest for more, I found this ‘premium’ flavour. In addition to the usual seasonings it also includes a packet of dried vegetables which give the noodles a really nice texture.
I can see why Wikipedia lists this one as one of the most popular flavours in Indonesia. It’s a basic spicy and flavourful chicken and onion soup. I can imagine that it would make a really good base for a proper noodle soup, with added chicken and vegetables, and lots of fried onion on top.
Wikipedia says that this flavour (chicken curry) is one of the most popular ones in Indonesia so I was quite disappointed when I tried it and realised it’s quite bland. It’s a soup but I can imagine it would be better if you drained the water.
Spicy mi goreng. It’s similar to the regular mi goreng. It wasn’t all that spicy but had a kind of fruity flavour to it.
I actually had this one last week, as I went to Sydney over the weekend, where I took the opportunity to not eat instant noodles. Clockwise: Chicken ramen, sushi train sushi, chicken laksa and tuna belly.
Yet another ‘special chicken soup’, which was surprising in the way that it’s actually a pretty basic chicken noodle soup. It does come with chilli powder but if you leave it out it can easily pass for a European-style chicken soup.
I wasn’t actually aware that Indomie did noodle soups, even though according to Wikipedia this one is the most popular flavour after mi goreng. Unlike last week’s crunchy chicken, this one definitely does taste like chicken, which, together with lime, is the dominant flavour. It’s a really good blend of flavours so I’ll definitely be having this one again.
