This is my very first review for a food, and this is NOT going to make some people happy, but this MIGHT helps you; INDOMIE SALTED EGG INSTANT NOODLE (from Indonesia) is THE WORST instant noodle ever!!!
And you should believe me – because I was born and raised in Indonesia with plenty of instant noodle choices. Some of my favorites are Sarimi Chicken Bawang, Mie Sedap Chicken Broth, Indomie Goreng Barbeque Chicken and Indomie Goreng Rendang. Most of them have standard taste, however they are cheap, easy to make and tasty.
Ok now – go back to this review.
Before I cooked Indomie Salted Egg Instant Noodle, I carefully read some comments and I followed the cooking instruction correctly as follow;
- Boil the noodle (half boiled – not overcooked) dry it and put aside
- Mix the pasta sauce and chili powder on a clean and dry plate
- Put the half-boiled dry noodle to the plate and mix them with mixed sauce (number #2)
- Sprinkle the salted egg dry powder on top of the noodle and mix carefully
What’s wrong with this instant noodle? The ingredients have a very strong and distinctive artificial smell – and they didn’t smell like salted egg at all! When I ate it – the chewy noodle was taste right however the artificial ingredients linger on my mouth and throat – they are the worst. I tried to drink coffee immediately to wash away the horrible taste but it didn’t work… I brushed the teeth and gargled still didn’t work. I literally don’t know how to clean this awful taste on my mouth so I decided to write this post to warn everyone.
If you’re a salted egg maniac – the one who enjoy everything from the real salted egg to salted egg crabs to irvin’s, I beg you please do NOT try this instant noodle – it was far worst from all salted egg food you have ever tasted! [ ± _ ± ]
