This flavor was delicious! And it’s not Ayam (chicken) ! I had no idea what Kocok Bandung flavor was so I did a bit of internetting and found that it’s a beef noodle soup from the Bandung area. Kocok means “shaken noodles” if anyone’s interested.
Followed the cooking instructions: Cook noodles separately and dump soup and noodles into the bowl with seasoning. I actually made this incorrectly as you can see below. I strained the noodles and didn’t add any of the water. Did not realize this was a soup noodle dish until I took my first bite and a jolt of sodium surged through my tongue… Wowzers! Went to check the packet again and saw the picture of SOUP noodles. Added some water from my hot water dispenser and wah lah…fixed. This flavor was really yummy, had a strong lime flavor that was very complimentary. I am a sucker for any and all noodle dishes that have lime.

at first glance, I thought…hmm interesting flavor…tomato, this is new! But wait, it’s not! This is just the Asian version of the Italian’s version of ramen! Duh! There was absolutely nothing in the fridge to make a proper dinner except for bits and pieces. I had a tomato, some cilantro and these noodles!
Strange waxy coating.
These noodles turned out to be quite yummy! Two packs were the perfect amount for dinner. Turned out tasting like the southern Italy in a bowl. The fresh cubes of tomato enhanced the flavor of the ramen. Very yummy and a must try if you can find it in your neck of the woods

So Rasa Gulai Ayam Pedas translates into: Hot gulai chicken flavor. I had no idea what Gulai is so I did some internetting and found that Gulai is a type of Indonesian food with a spicy, rich and curry-like sauce. Yummy.
Indonesian instructions are to add the noodles to the seasoning vs the other way around. I’m curious as to why, what’s the difference?
The finished product. I poached an egg in the water after I took the noodles out. Had leftover chive which came in handy. I enjoyed this flavor. It lives up to the flavor description of Gulai I found on the internet. Definitely tasted like Curry with some spice which was mild.

There were quite a few people waiting for ramen…always a good sign. It was a little crazy…and lucky for us we go there just in time…we were #15 on the list, a few more names and then the list was closed!
One of the appetizers that we tried…Fries with Okonomiyaki sauce, mayo, green onions and bonito flakes…yummm.
This is their Ore No Tsukemen – just perfect for the summer. Cold noodles topped with bamboo, seaweed, green onions and pork. The dipping sauce is a shoyu sauce with vinegar, garlic and bonito flakes. It was pretty tasty…Their dipping sauce was ok…has a very strong shoyu taste, I thought it could use a touch of sweet to balance it out. My #1 tsukemen noodle dish is at Minca ramen in NY.
I ordered the Orenchi Ramen which is their tonkotsu based ramen. The bowl arrived with the standard toppings…a little bit of woodear mushroom, bamboo, green onion, sesame, pork and EGG. (Their egg is amazing, see picture below). The soup was nice and oily and I could see lots of bits of garlic. Loved the fat, soft and chewy noodles. A very filling bowl…had to take the rest to go!
How do they do this?! It’s like a marinated soft boil egg…look at that golden yummy yolk! Drool.
